Born in Bushey, Herts in 1954 I was brought up in Harrow, Middlesex and attended Harrow School of Art where I gained a Fine Art degree, I had some wonderful tuition from one particular tutor, Ken Howard OBE RA.
My qualification earned me a place as apprentice illustrator in a London studio working on books and magazines often with incredibly short deadlines. After three years I decided that my true aspirations weren't being met and I found a way back into the fine art scene. Painting solidly alo...
Born and bred in Swanage, Dorset. Lived all my life in Purbeck and have always loved it's countryside. A very keen ornithologist from an early age. One of my favourite subjects whilst at school was art and my natural talent won me many prizes for this subject. My interest in the hobby of Aviculture also began as a young boy and to this day is my main hobby. I specialize in painting birds of the world but paint dogs, cats and other animals on a commission basis only. Most of my subjects are pa...
I recently retired from the British Army after serving for 39 years and, now that I have the time, I have embarked on a part time career as an artist. I thoroughly enjoy my new career and look forward to many years at the easel. Having lived, on and off, most of my life in Castle Cary, I look forward very much to becoming part of the Sherborne Art Club.
I am an artist who loves colour. Not only bright colours, but the infinite shades that can be produced from one or two colours.
I enjoy painting groups of similar objects and by mixing shapes and colours, I hope to encourage the viewer to see hidden beauty in everyday items.
I have always painted and drawn, but I trained as a scientist, finally taking up painting full time after 20 years of working in a laboratory.
I paint mainly in oils as this medium produces the intensity of colours I wish t...

I've always enjoyed drawing and painting and joined an art class when I retired. In 2000 I was introduced to wood engraving and immediately became "hooked". I find working in black and white exciting and challenging. For the last 13 years I have exhibited wood engravings in the RWA open exhibition in Bristol as well as some Society of Wood Engravers annual exhibitions, Sherborne art club, Bath and West and other local exhibitions. I was elected a member of the Society of Wood Engravers in 2009.
Camilla moved to Batcombe in Somerset having worked for several years in London as a photographer’s agent in advertising. She began her painting with still life, exploring the relationships between inanimate objects. Her understanding of light and shade was much influenced by those years in photography. More recently, she completed a series of figurative paintings based on homelessness, much inspired by her work with Nightstop - a life changing charity in Bristol for young people thrown on ...
