Christine Lafon

Mixed Media
Cambridge

Growing up in South East London my dream was to be an artist but although offered a place at Camberwell Art School in my teens, I was sent to Pitman's Secretarial College instead - devastated.  So began many art-less and office-bound years. 

Today a Cambridge resident with a growing sense of 'it's now or never', for the first time I'm free to fully grasp the identity of full-time artist.  I'm so hankful to God for this unexpected gift at the tail end of life.

My preferred subject is portraits but I'm also venturing increasingly into still-life and abstract in a variety of styles and media.  Sometimes themes develop as I get excited about a particular subject, but I'm often frustrated by the fact that my creative imagination runs ahead of my technical know-how.  'Do what makes your heart sing!' said a friend - that's what I'm trying to do.
