14th Feb
Church Centre

Mariella was born in Italy, where she trained in Fashion and Fine Art, moving to London in 1978. After teaching painting and drawing in adult education between 1988-2004,  she then moved to Cucklington, Somerset starting a private school of art.

​She has exhibited her work in Italy, London and Somerset. Having recently retired from teaching her focus is now to develop

long standing ideas into painting. Mariella has a strong interest in Cubism. Her chosen subjects often evolve on canvas without pre established structure, a collage of textured papers and other materials are applied, then submerged with paint. The swing from figurative to abstraction is ultimately trying to satisfy a personal mood and statement. She is never satisfied and always searching until her work no longer relates to the original subject but acquires a new identity.

Coloured Pencil
11th April
Church Centre

BLACS member Caroline Strong is giving a demo on Monday 11th April at the Church Centre, Portsmouth Road. Liphook. GU30 7DJ (for Google Maps this is Bramshott and Liphook Church Office not the Church Centre)

She will be demonstrating various techniques to draw a cat’s eye in pure coloured pencil, as well as giving advice on which papers and coloured pencils can be used for the best results.

Caroline is a local professional artist and tutor. She works realistically but not in photo realism. She draws or paints things from the natural world, in watercolour, coloured pencil, acrylic or pastels, and sometimes in graphite or oils. She has won the People’s Choice award twice at BLACS annual exhibition and has exhibited locally and in Orkney, Nature in art, St. Ives and in London.

She is BLACS workshop secretary and is a PACS member too. Caroline is a member of TWASI (The Wildlife Art Society International) and exhibits at Southern Nature’s annual exhibition.

She hopes to see you there.
