About The Artist

I have lived in Berkshire in the UK for 20 years.

I am a demonstrator and tutor and have had great fun demonstrating to and teaching lots of different Art organizations in the UK and abroad, both face to face and online.

I developed my mixed-media technique out of necessity. Living in a country struggling under the weight of economic sanctions, teachers and artists had to learn to improvise with natural flora and fauna. More information on my website.

I have also won various awards for my mixed-media paintings at Patchings Annual Art Exhibition in Calverton, near Nottingham.

Mixed-Media Art by Sandhurst Artist and Art Tutor Jenny Whalley - Flight and Chatter
I demonstrate to Art Societies around the uk and abroad, with very positive feedback:

“Jenny is a tremendously creative, talented artist. Her creations transform a home. Plus … she managed to teach a non-painter to complete a few pieces . She’s patitent, hilarious, great fun – a superb teacher!”

Art Groups / Exhibitions

I belong to the Crowthorne and Sandhurst Art Society. From 2001-2005 I was their exhibition secretary. I have also exhibited with The Society of Women Artists at the Mall Gallery, twice.

The Nolan Trust Biennial Exhibition invited me to exhibit when I first arrived in the UK. One of the paintings was of a seagull pinching a chip. There is a very funny story attached to the exhibition of the painting, to read on my website.

About The Artist

Fred paints what is around him; that is still-lives of the jugs, bottles, fruit and such in the house, or flowers from the garden. For him, the best way to capture the nature of these things is to employ the expressive possibilities provided by oil painting.

Fred is also attracted to accuracy and detail which can often be achieved through drawing, so working in charcoal or pastel pencils is also important for him.

A concern for understanding the inner workings of things has always motivated Fred and this was evident in his studies. Gaining a B.Sc in Physics took him into the Aerospace industry and then looking for more insight, a Ph.D in Engineering took him into computing. On retirement, Fred wanted to take these concerns into the area of artistic activities and he realised that realistic painting in the traditional “atelier” manner would satisfy him best. This traditional approach to art allows a wide range of expression with great concerns for form,colour and tone.

Fred gained experience in painting and drawing by attendance on courses at various specialist Art Schools. These studies also created a fascination with both portraiture and figure-drawing, which he has maintained.

About The Artist

I’m an amateur artist living in West Berkshire.

I take my inspiration mainly from rural and coastal landscapes and the trans formative effects that seasonal and meteorological change have on these.

I have a particular fascination with human intervention on the landscape and the resulting tension between permanence and impermanence: ancient monuments and architectural ruins being a favourite theme. I am intrigued by the way these become absorbed into the surrounding environment over time, while maintaining some presence of their own.

I try to reflect this in the scale of the landscapes I paint and through the relationship between land and sky.

I work mainly in acrylics because I like the immediacy of the medium. I am a keen walker and always have my camera to hand for taking reference photographs, particularly in 'interesting' weather!

Art Group

I am a member of the Reading Guild of Artists.

Reading Town Hall

I have always been fascinated by terracotta architecture and Reading has its fair share of these buildings remaining in the town. One of my favourites is Reading Town Hall with its beautiful red and grey brickwork and imposing Clock Tower. I have tried to paint this iconic building in an impressionistic style with the Clock Tower in focus.

About The Artist

Kusum Shabong is a self-taught Watercolour artist living in Reading, Berkshire. Although she has enjoyed painting from a young age, she has only seriously started pursuing it for the past six years. She enjoys the medium because of its immediacy and wonderful luminosity. She likes to try different styles and techniques and enjoys painting different subjects, primarily relating to nature, flora and fauna and architecture. A subject of deep contrast attracts and inspires her to paint. Currently she finds herself drawn to the human form and its various emotions and is experimenting with it. She is constantly learning and enjoying her art journey tremendously.

She likes to work from photo references, although she enjoys 'plein air' painting too. She takes some time to study the subject and break it down to its different stages and finds herself painting mostly in a loose, impressionistic style using the medium in transparent washes. Watercolour painting has given her immense pleasure and satisfaction and she feel inspired by watercolour painters of today- like Chien Chung Wei and Thomas Schaller.

Art Group / Exhibitions

Kusum is a member of Art Societies in her area (Reading Guild of Artists and Wokingham Art Society) and these are thriving and active societies and have frequent exhibitions and demos and workshops. She has exhibited with them and is also represented by some online galleries. Her recent achievement has been being one of the winners in the Diversity Exhibition hosted by Doncaster Art Fair.
