Jayne Bateman - the healing artist
I have been painting since childhood purely for the love of painting. My passion for painting has never faded, neither has my chidlike sense of wonder at the world and everything in it, therefore my inspiration can be anything and everything that captures my imagination or emotions, prodicing a varied collection of vibrant acrylics and mixed media paintings.
I was born in Scarborough, North Yorkshire and as a small child spent a lot of time with my grandfather, who by day worked for the local council, building roads, but in his spare time he painted beautiful seascapes with oils. I used to watch him work in silence, totally captivated by what he was doing. In that silence my very young mind somehow connected to my own inner artist and understood the love of painting, which has never left me.
When I was living in Dorset in 2004 I started exhibited and selling my work, both in group and solo exhibitions in some incredible buildings including Stapehill Abbey, Dorchester County Muesum, Christchurch Priory, Dorchester Town Hall as well as taking part in Dorset Art Weeks. Since I started exhibiting, people have asked me for commissions and enquiries for teaching. My passion lies in bringing out the inner artist in anyone who would simply love to paint but never thought they could, so I provide 1:1 tuition, tailoring each session to the individual's artistic needs to ensure that their own style and influencecs can come out.
I am currently living, working and exhibiting in Somerset. I offer tuition from my studio in Cheddar and have a permanent exhibition at one of my homeopathic clinics which is also in Cheddar.
