Ceri Allen – (Painting, Drawing, Fine Art)

Contemporary fine artist from Carlisle, Ceri studied at City & Guilds School of Art, London, has exhibited widely in international collections, in Carlisle City Museum & Gallery and St Mary’s Hospital, Paddington. Was awarded first prize in the Cumbrian Open exhibition in 2007

Ceri’s depth of knowledge about artists and styles is exceptional and filters through to her courses. She is a stunning artist in her own right and, as evidenced by those who know her, a generous and lovely person – ideal for Higham.

‘For many years I have been working on a recurring theme, that of the figure in a mainly urban environment. I am interested in creating a sense of place and sometimes a sense of separateness. My work has been developed from preparatory sketches, photographs and memories’. CA
