About The Artist

SUBJECT TO CHANGE
I live in Cookham, Berkshire and tend to paint landscapes and animals using Oils and Acrylics.

My work has become looser and more painterly over time, using thicker layers of paint. I am happy to work from good photos and accept commissions. The starting price for my artwork is £180 for smaller works. I also have high-quality Fine Art Giclée Prints of some of the paintings, which cost £40.

I have been painting in oils since I was 15. In 2003 I completed a HND in Fine Art at Reading College of Art and Design (now TVU), which allowed me to explore other mediums such as etching, ceramics, photography and screen printing. I prefer to work in oils and like being able to see the brush strokes in a painting, because I think this makes the painting more powerful and enhances the composition.

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.

Reading School Berkshire - Framed Mixed Media Art by Berkshire Artist Therese Lawlor

Reading School, Berkshire

Reading School can trace its roots back to the 12th Century when it was part of Reading Abbey, but the dissolution of the Abbey, the Great Plague and English Civil War led to the school’s eventual closure in the 19th Century. However, by 1867 it was announced that Reading School would be restarted but a new building was needed to house its students.

Fortunately, Alfred Waterhouse, a nationally eminent architect, happened to be living in Reading at that point and was commissioned to design the new school. He is considered to be one of the most important architects of the 19th Century.

Waterhouse designed hundreds of buildings across the UK including the Natural History Museum and Manchester Town Hall.

The school opened in 1871 on its present site in Erleigh Road and is a Grammar School for boys, of some 880 pupils, which selects on the basis of examined ability, usually at age 11, with further entrants at 13 and 16.

About The Artist

Thérèse has lived in Reading for over 30 years and uses the town and her allotment as two of the inspirations for her work.

She develops paintings from sketches she makes on location and some of the scenes captured become greeting cards, with the history of the place on the back. Some of her work has represented Reading with its twin town of Dusseldorf and she has been commissioned to depict many local buildings for promotions or as presents. She is very happy to discuss commissions.

Greetings Cards

'My cards carry the history of the image on the front in the case of local places, or recipes on the back of my food pictures, or gardening advice on my allotment cards.'

Art Group / Exhibitions

Thérèse is a member of the Reading Guild of Artists, Woodley and Earley Arts Group, Reading Urban Sketchers and Mixed Media Monday Group. She exhibits at Whiteknights Studio Trail, The Henley Arts Trail and at many local arts events in Berkshire.
