We would like to offer you the opportunity to meet artist Gill Farrington, who is currently exhibiting in our Studio Gallery until the end of August.

Gill will be in the Studio Gallery from 10am on Thursday 15th August.

Gill is a local artist based at Mynachlog-ddu, Pembrokeshire in the midst of the beautiful and inspiring Preseli Hills.  She has been painting since childhood inspired by watching her father, an accomplished amateur artist.

Academically, Gill  completed a City of Guilds art and Design course, at Art and illustration course with the Open College of the Arts (passed with Merit) and attended Surrey College of Art and Design in Farnham, to study BA (hons) in Fine Art.

Gill’s career has included teaching both privately and for local authority Adult Education classes for both Hampshire and  Bracknell Forest Councils and has had  exhibitions both locally in Pembrokeshire and  Surrey. She currently belongs to the Hook and District Art Society and is a long time member of the Society for all Artists (SAA)

Living and working from her studio in the beautiful West Wales National Park, Gill’s paintings are inspired by nature and the world around her and include both representational and abstract or semi-abstract works in watercolour, oil and acrylic.  She finds floral subjects very satisfying and enjoys trying to find an unusual aspect or viewpoint  The everchanging landscape or seascape is another aspect that she particularly enjoys.
