Frances Winder – (Watercolour, Gouache, Pastel, Acrylic)

Former art teacher now a highly-rated Tutor based in Kendal. Very distinctive and talented artist in her own right. Ran her own studio in Manchester. Worked as an illustrator for architects and advertising agencies. Continues exhibiting regularly

“As an artist, the fleeting qualities of light and colour excite me. I am trying to grasp the internal qualities, the essential mood and spirit of place. Sometimes I use a straightforward, representational approach, but increasingly I am exploring the abstract. I love to experiment with texture and colour and follow themes and ideas of work, large and small.” FW
