Artist Info: 

Born in 1933, a British painter and fabric designer. Brathe-university-of-winchesternson has completed over 600 paintings at hjonah-and-the-whaleer house in Highgate, London. Her biggest motivation was the work of her father (who was an artist himself).When she begun she was told she couldn’t become a professional painter, “as to do so it was necessary to paint for 6 hours a day” and that she’d have to paint on small canvases as it was only “appropriate for her”. She defied this and has spent the last 57 years creating large paintings for 7 hours a day.celebrating-175-years-of-value-led-education
