Maker Spotlights: each day we will be focusing on individual exhibitors, exploring their work and finding out what makes them tick...
The past year has proved something of a revelation for painter, Greg Tull. Being on furlough has enabled him the time and space to reconnect with his creativity and feel privileged to have had the opportunity to immerse himself in all things art related. “It feels like I've come back home”, he tells us.
Since completing a Foundation Art Course in Illustration and Design, Greg has spent much of his working life as a Occupational Therapist and Shiatsu practitioner. His return to his art came about during the recent lockdowns, which afforded Greg the opportunity to sink into a pace where he is less distracted by responsibility. He describes his garden studio as, “an oasis of calm”, where he completely loses himself in "flow" whenever he goes down there.
Greg is thrilled to continue exploring and developing his style, as well as trying new techniques and methods to create images that resonate. Looking forward, Greg explains, “I'm also veering towards some abstraction and expressing archetypal imagery and will be exploring this further over the next few years.”
Living in Colerne, overlooking the Bybrook Valley, Greg divides his time between his art studio and seeing Shiatsu clients in his home clinic. He also enjoys Yoga, Qi Gong, cycling, exploring the local footpaths and a new interest in Art History Zoom webinars.
