Art in the Mansion – Sandra Phillips – CANCELLED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

July 24, 2020 - August 6, 2020

Artist’s statement
“I was born and brought up in Pendine, educated at Whitland Grammar School and studied in Liverpool and the University of Wales, Aberystwyth.

An art lover since childhood, I began painting in earnest following early retirement from teaching.

What started as an interest in watercolour has developed into a  love of all media particularly oil painting. Here I can express my feelings for the landscapes and seascapes. I so enjoy painting using impasto work in an impressionistic style.

I am heavily influenced by the sea, coast and rugged mountains. These make up the bulk of my work. I enjoy working on-site also taking photographs and making sketches of the scenes which interest me. I am particularly drawn to light, mood and atmosphere which draws an emotional response from myself and viewers of my work.

I am always looking for new areas to paint and trying different approaches to my work. I love experimenting with mixed media and the feel the need to develop my work further.

When time permits I demonstrate or do workshops for art groups which I also enjoy. ”

Normal admission applies.
