Pippa grew up in Zimbabwe and South Africa and moved to the UK in 1984. Her first studies in art were at Amersham & Wycombe College in the 1990’s. She later gave up teaching IT to concentrate on painting and sculpture. Her work deals mainly with the sea and landscapes, particularly man-made patterns on the countryside. Aerial views leading to abstraction are often her inspiration.
She uses mixed media, with a preference for the modern feel of acrylics, and is currently exploring the versatility of digital software to enhance existing paintings.
Pippa has shown work in Cape Town and London, including:
- St Martins in the Fields, London
- Questors Theatre, Ealing
- Amersham Town Hall
- Obsidian Art, Buckinghamshire
- Buckinghamshire County Museum, Aylesbury
- Buckinghamshire Art Society
