Portrait of Billie Willcocks

Portrait of Billie Willcocks

“I rarely plan my work, preferring it to develop spontaneously – although I usually have a fair idea of how it needs to take form.

When out sketching, I prefer to use diagrams of shapes and compositions – putting colours and ideas for later work.

My studio is in a beautiful garden, where I am fortunate to have plenty of inspiration and tranquility! I love to work outside especially along the Dorset coastline

It is a constant struggle to achieve something new and exciting and I try to use different techniques and ideas as much as possible to this end.

Although I work in watercolour, gouache and acrylic – mixed media and oils are my preferred medium.

I seem to have a need to paint and can’t wait to start on a new piece.”
