In the dim and distant past Arty, then known as Chrys, studied Graphics at Camberwell College of Art then having fulfilled her earning a living and child rearing responsibilities, she returned to her love of drawing, especially life drawing. Over the past few years she has begun to explore a variety of media; pencil, pastel, paint, print and has found a use for some wooden letterpress blocks acquired many moons ago. Her work now combines the words, heard or read - from the radio, papers, books, poems, people's mouths, with the images. So it's been another year of exploring the interaction of words and images and scribbling wherever she goes including another opportunity to draw musicians performing at concerts and rehearsals during the Newbury Spring Festival. This year Arty will be an Associate Artist for MOS but is doing Open Studios in West Berkshire and North Hampshire, for details go to www.open-studios.org.uk. If you'd like to see her studio, (which is in Newbury ........) and can put up with Chocolate Labradors (there are 2 of them) please get in touch.
