About the artist:

Gillian took courses at Warwick University for six years; Birmingham College of Art; and National Association of Goldsmiths. An active member of the Birmingham Art Circle and Birmingham Watercolour Society, she also works with acrylic, oil, and pastel. ‘Most of my paintings stem from visual memory of associations, and images of form and colour. The development of painting is always a great adventure. Many drawings help me to realise my vision. The whole process is fraught with moments of desperation and determination as the cautious game of adjustment strengthens composition, drawing and colour which leads to a visual statement where nothing can be added or taken away’.
