About the artist:
Mathe’s academic qualifications have been in Ceramics and Glass with a thesis on Victorian Stained Glass. For several years she produced ceramics for sale and designs for companies as well as individual glass pieces.
Later she became a part-time lecturer in History of Art at Birmingham City University. Since she retired she has concentrated on two dimensional work in watercolour and ink.
Used freely they allow her to express her response to nature and its mystery of space and time. She has had periods working intensively on flowers, individually and in groups, on trees which can be near-realistic or semi-abstract. Other aspects of her work derive from landscape, sky and water responding well to a free combination of watercolours and inks.
