PWS - Signature Artist Wendy Parkyn Click for Home Page
I was born in 1959 and educated in Jersey. It was there I began my career as a painter, hand painting pottery and selling landscapes through local galleries. I am completely self-taught and prefer to work outdoors whenever possible.
On moving to Cornwall in 1990 I concentrated on painting watercolour seascapes, and being a dog lover - animal portraits in oils and acrylics. On acquiring the necessary teaching qualifications, I taught watercolour painting for many years through the Adult Education service.
I have recently been experimenting with cubism, and examples can be seen on my website.
I work in watercolours, oils, acrylic, pastels and mixed media. I do demonstrations and workshops for local Art Groups and Art Societies, locally and further afield. I hold a regular class in Nantstallon on a Tuesday afternoon 2-5pm, and private lessons are available in The Studio Gallery on request, at times to suit.
Apart from The Wendy Parkyn Studio Gallery my work can be seen in Elford Fine Art in Tavistock and The Alverton Gallery, Penzance. I also exhibit regularly with The Bideford and Westward Ho! Art Society. I am a member of the Plymouth Watercolour Society.
I recently exhibited in the Victoria Art Gallery in Bath, with the Bath Society of Artists.
