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 first picked up a sketch pen or a brush in 2016! I have no formal art education, which perhaps explains the lack of a ‘style’. I love to record what I see, trying to capture a sense of place and time, drawing and painting where I live and where I travel to.

Pen and ink, watercolours, acrylics, pastels and mixed media are my go-to mediums. I love to explore and experiment: mediums and subject matter vary, but the thread that weaves through it all is my love of lines, textures and colours. I can relate to Walt Disney’s quote : “I can never stand still … I resent the limitations of my own imagination.”

About The Artist

I have always been drawn to painting, but my interest in Art changed dramatically twenty years ago, when I became involved in the use of art therapy, working with young people with educational needs.

In 2013, I exhibited successfully for the first time and have continued to do so. I particularly enjoy showing my work in an environment where I am able to meet the public and discuss aspects of not only my work, but art in general.

My work captures the world around me, family, friends, nature, scenery – I love being able to put what I see and feel onto paper or canvas and watching a picture evolve.

Growing as an artist is very exciting. I love bold colours, and the natural world always inspires me. With this I mind, I’ve ventured into looser, abstract and mixed-media styles.

Art Group / Exhibitions

I am based in Maidenhead, Berkshire and exhibit locally.

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.
