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. Having not exhibited last year really looking forward to re joining Kim Pethybridge again this year and is doing Open Studios in West Berkshire and North Hampshire, in May, 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.
