My name is Mary Gilson. I started to paint after I took early retirement from my teaching career.
I was a founder member of Allington Artists with whom I exhibited widely around the local area. I have recently become a member of Phoenix Artists, a small group of experienced people who share their skills and expertise. I plan to exhibit more widely in the years to come.
I work in a variety of media, Watercolour, mainly pen and wash in which I do countryside scenes, buildings and animals (wild and tame).
Detailed pen drawings of similar subjects.
Occasional acrylic work mostly of astronomical subjects or animals.
I have also trained in calligraphy and often use this in combination with watercolour. I have exhibited my calligraphy a number of times in Wiltshire.
Another skill I have learnt is marbling on paper and I enjoy producing unique art works and sheets of attractive paper for use in craft work.
