Shirley has painted for as long as she can remember, in oils, acrylic and watercolour. She was a student at Croydon College of Art, passing with Distinction. She has had many exhibitions around the area, the last big one being at The Wharf in Tavistock.

Painting makes her feel better – painting makes her feel warm and peaceful – a beautiful scene put down on paper or canvas fills her with satisfaction and makes her feel alive.

She has tried many different styles of painting to see which she prefers – when you visit, you’ll be able to see how diverse they all are. Most of her paintings are bright and cheerful, as she wishes to be!

The paintings featured at Mayflower Arts are original, or prints, with all prints produced by Bretonside Copy.
