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

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.”

Reading Town Hall - Clock Tower - Berkshire Art Gallery - Kusum Shabong

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.

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.

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.
