About The Artist

Audrey relocated from Surrey to West Sussex in 2012. She had been a regular member of the Byfleet Art Group in Surrey since it was founded in 1968 and was the Group's Chairman and Programme Secretary for a number of years. On leaving, she was made Honorary Life President of Byfleet Art Group and awarded the Noel Haring Trophy in recognition of her work.

Audrey is mainly a self-taught artist, receiving great encouragement from Art Group Tutors and Adult Education classes, where an Art 'A' Level was achieved as a mature student.

A love of flowers and nature make these favourite subjects for Audrey to paint, mainly in watercolours, but she also paints landscapes, seascapes and birds, in various media. Having mastered the art of painting on silk, she enjoys producing paintings on silk and also designing and painting silk scarves.

About The Artist

Sheila Martin has been painting avidly for 12 years. She retired from being a chef 6 years ago and had been working in offices previously. Sheila lived in Kelvedon in Braintree Essex and attended various art classes and progressed from there, before recently moving to St Leonards on Sea, East Sussex.

Art is all about emotion, feeling and giving to others. It is such a wonderful thing to do to start from scratch and build up a painting for people to enjoy. So Sheila never did art for a living prior to retirement, but has been able to recently enjoy success and build a reputation to be able to hold solo exhibitions.

She likes to paint in all types of media, she uses pebeo golds and silvers, glitter and masking fluid. When she went to school there were never all these wonderful art colours and medias to hand. Flowers and forests are her main works.

Sheila Martin  - Sussex Artist at Stoke Mandeville Hospital
Please enjoy Sheila's art and if you would like one, she would only be delighted to paint for you or to teach you her techniques.

Art Groups

I belong to the Battle Art Group (East Sussex) and have had 2 solo exhibitions this year.
Member of Colchester Art Society, Essex.

Art Tuition For Children

I am now doing demonstrations in Hobbycraft in Chelmsford, Essex. I have done 4 now. The children come up and help me paint.

I have a CRB and would like to take them for 2 to 3 hours on a lesson. I feel that what I do helps the brain to focus and stops boredom by painting pictures. I have been commissioned work by various people over the last 2 years

About The Artist

As a child, I taught myself to draw and paint by copying animals and horses out of books on an almost daily basis. I was helped in formulating the purpose to be an artist by watching Rolf Harris on the TV (and no I don’t care what the press says about him – he is a brilliant artist and an inspirational teacher). In 1979 I did a foundation course at Chelsea and then a degree course at Brighton where I graduated in 1982 with a fine art degree in sculpture. I then worked in a studio on the seafront for a while making sculptures with an architect for clubs and hotels.

On moving to East Grinstead in the late 80's, I began painting for an art agent that specialised in animal, people and bespoke portraits and soon became skilled at painting dogs and horses in a classical style. I also took on mural painting commissions and wrote and illustrated a few children's books.

In the late 90's I began teaching art adult education courses for Central Sussex College as well as running my own art courses. I sell my paintings mostly in on-line galleries but also through galleries and exhibitions. I have exhibited at the Mall galleries in London, Chelsea open exhibition, local galleries such as Chequer Mead, East Grinstead, The Hawth Theatre, Sheffield Park, Lingfield, Brighton festival, Shoreham gallery and many others.

My goal is a) to paint a masterpiece one day b) help other people to get the thrill from their creating their own art that I get.

My Motivation

My inspiration simply comes from painting things that I have actually seen – often from memory. I find that if I paint something I have seen - that it is what was imprinted on my memory that emerges on the canvas - but it will also be altered into a symmetry and pattern that pleases me. My six years studying art at college was well spent, learning to draw skilfully and learning about composition, colours, tones and shapes. I know my basics quite well and find that this is essential to the creation of most impressive pieces of art. I think that the best paintings in this world have ‘little souls’ woven into them by the artist and this is what makes people desire them (or not). This what I try to do. Sometimes I succeed well and sometimes I don’t, but it keeps me endlessly entertained.

Art Awards!

Like many artists I sometimes describe myself as an ‘award winning artist’ for PR reasons. It is true but I rarely mention what the awards were so in the interest of integrity, here are my awards:

a) When I was 4 and in a convent school I won the ‘best painting of an angel’ competition. I won a handkerchief and a plastic flower.

b) When I was 9 I came first in a local painting competition for painting a picture of my house. It was a surprise as I had chucked it away a few weeks earlier when I got cross with it – not knowing my Dad had found it in the bin and entered into the competition. I still have the photo that was in the local paper of me looking simultaneously stupid, pleased and disgusted as the Mayor gave me my prize. I won a £5 book token.

c) When I was 11. I became the proud owner of a Blue Peter badge which I won for painting an underwater scene in a competition in 1979. I won a plastic badge with a boat on it.

d) When I was 37. I won an award for best wildlife painting in an on-line competition where people voted for best painting. I never got my prize as the website went down a week later.

e) When I was 48. I won first prize in the Danehill Art Fair. I won £250 (yay – an actual prize!)

That was possibly the best my illustrious competition winning career is going to get but at least I can genuinely call myself ‘award winning’ – impressive eh?
