Beryl took up painting when she retired. For a number of years she went to Art Classes at Gillingham Adult Education Centre, and continued to paint until her death.
When I retired I started attending pottery classes at Gillingham Adult Education Centre, and a year later Beryl started attending too. I was producing mainly pots and other useful objects but Beryl was more interested in clay modelling.
She painted in most media but much of her work was in pastel or acrylic. She painted most subjects but particularly flowers and rocks, and loved Avebury, which she painted many times and in all seasons. She did not usually enjoy painting people and seldom did so. A lot of her work was abstract or imaginative.
This Page is really a Work in Progress and the photographs of her work are not at present in any particular order, and some of the images are at present the wrong size for the web or do not contain the link to the description.
To find out about each piece you can click on the image - in many cases there is a story, often a very funny story, about how it came to be made.
