Anthea Lay, working in Mixed-media, Painting

Following service in the WRNS, I graduated from the University of Chichester in BA(Hons) Art and Related Arts, PGCE. I have previously exhibited at Mall Galleries and Southampton City Art Gallery. A previous contestant on first series of the BBC series ' The Big Painting Challenge', I lasted on the show for four of the six episodes and loved every minute of the experience. Plein air painting is my joy. I prefer to always paint from life, out in the open, for most of the year. I usually use palette knife and oil paints, and sometimes pen or mixed media to interpret the local sea and landscapes. Nature is inspirational to me, as is our Cornish weather- I adore clouds! During the cooler months I stay indoors and explore different subjects in a variety of media.
