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.

Maiwand Lion – Forbury Gardens Reading - Sculpture by George Blackall Simonds - Art by Berkshire Artist Therese Lawlor

The Maiwand Lion, Reading

The iconic Maiwand Lion stands proudly in the Forbury Gardens and is one of Reading’smost loved monuments – even appearing on the shield of Reading football club. It was sculpted by George Blackall Simonds and erected in 1886.

The 31-foot lion commemorates the Berkshire men who fought in the Battle of Maiwand in the Second Afghan War, a battle described as one of the bloodiest battles in history.

Forbury Gardens sit on what was land shared by church and townsfolk, which was given to the public when the Abbey was dissolved in 1539 for recreation and grazing. By the 1840s it was virtually unusable, due to the disposal of rubbish and dead animals, but thankfully for us, the Borough Council bought it in 1854 and within 10 years the beautiful gardens we see today were established. The lion is glimpsed here from an unusual angle through the Forbury railings.

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.
