Silk Painting Artists

Training: Started my ‘art’ career at aged 8 attending Saturday morning art classes at my local Art School for 3 years. Art was discouraged at my very academic grammar school but continued drawing and painting at home.
My training and professional life as a teacher then headteacher gave me an outlet to be creative and explorative in several media.
I started silk painting 3 years ago working closely with Jill Kennedy.

Training: Finding more time on my hands and looking for an interest to keep my mind active with something a little different and more creative, I was introduced to silk painting by an enthusiastic and friendly local group. I have learnt a lot about colour, dyes, materials and different techniques, and have even started experimenting myself. This has proved to be a very worthwhile and enjoyable activity and one that can produce a useable end product.
