Lovedy
James

Artist Profile

A well known artist and teacher of art, Lovedy has exhibited in London at the Society of Women Artists (S.W.A.) annual exhibition at Westminster Hall. She also exhibits locally with the Christchurch Arts Guild and Highcliffe Art Fellowship and her work is familiar to many local people.

She has been awarded several prestigious prizes – the Mercy Oddy Memorial Water colour prize, the Dick Crow Marine Trophy of mixed media seascape and on two occasions the Presidents Choice Award, again for mixed media work. As a keen and prize winning amateur gardener and floral display artist it is not surprising that the subject of flowers feature in her water colours and pastels; the reflection of trees in water is another theme which regularly occurs in her paintings of the New Forest as are the atmospheric skies, sunsets and dawns along our local coastline.

In her more recent work, Mixed Media Seascapes have featured success fully as have Reflections in water with Ink.

Lovedy’s Summer Workshops and her Art classes at All Saint’s Church Mudeford for Amateur Painters have raised several thousand pounds for local charities.

Artist Profile

I love being able to use different media to create colourful pictures.   Moving between media allows a loose immediate approach which is reflected in my work.

Being outside sketching and painting means I can absorb myself in the surrounding atmosphere that continually inspires me

Artist Profile

I have lived in this area for some 30 years and draw much of my inspiration for painting from the wonderfully diverse coastal and countryside views. However, recent lengthy periods in the warmer climate of Spain have influenced some of my work. I enjoy using several different mediums and find that the subject and conditions guide which I choose on a particular day. My interest in painting has been lengthy, since school days and Southampton Art College in the 70’s. I have sold in many countries but whilst this is not the reason I pick up brushes, it is always nice to fund ones hobby

Artist Profile

After discovering painting on my retirement I have found a new absorbing hobby that is both relaxing and rewarding.   I have always been excited by colour and this enjoyment has been fulfilled over the years through upholstery, soft furnishing and gardening.  Watercolour is  the media that best suits my way and style of painting.
