ABSTRACT LANDSCAPE DRAWING WITH JO PERKINS

I am an Edinburgh based artist making semi-abstract paintings in response to my local landscape. I am fascinated with colour and how it makes us feel, often exploring saturated palettes that reflect both my emotions in regard to the landscape and the changing seasons. I look at pattern and shape and am working to establish a visual language that describes my experiences.
Compositions are created from life then translated to canvas or wooden panel in an expressive and intuitive way. I use acrylic for its immediacy and versatility and mix this with other media to enhance each piece.

ABOUT

MICHAEL LYNN

I am a Performance and Health Nutritionist (SENr register) running my own business ‘Nurture’, providing nutritional programmes in primary and secondary schools. At present, operating in the North West of England. This entails practical cooking sessions, one-to-one support, supermarket visits, recipes and workshops with pupils, parents and teachers educating them on the benefits of good nutrition by providing them the knowledge to make informed choices. Being ‘Healthy’ is seen to be a middle class preserve, meaning you need money to eat and lead a healthy lifestyle. The goal of ‘Nurture’ is to dispel this by educating children and parents that your financial standing does not matter, that you can still lead a healthy lifestyle by following the mantra “Education from the roots up”.

I am, also, a sessional worker at ‘The Joshua Tree foundation’ providing nutritional support and cooking to children and families affected by cancer. This work directly links in with my research with researchers from Liverpool John Moore’s and Edge Hill university’s and future research in applying nutrition and exercise strategies to positively alter body compositional changes during aftercare treatment of children with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL).
