Artist of the month JANE FARROW
When my mother and father gave me a tin box of watercolours and brushes for my tenth birthday it started a life long passion for art. Although I have had no formal art training I have been a student of Mary Thomas’s inspirational art class for many years and attended various workshops and other classes, gradually learning new techniques and skills.
Watercolour is probably my preferred medium and I particularly enjoy painting botanical studies. Occasionally I like to break out of this detailed technique and splash colour around in any medium – oils, acrylic or pastels – to try to capture a subject that has interested me.
I can’t say I have any particular style but my art has been a great joy to me over the years in addition to the friends I have made and if I sell a picture now and again, well, it’s a wonderful bonus.
