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!

I am a member of the Reading Guild of Artists.

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.

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.

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.
