Shirley Foote, Lines in a Landscape I, Pastel & Ink on Paper 36 X 25.5cm
Shirley Foote grew up in Wiltshire and trained at the West of England Academy before working in ceramics. In 1993 she took up painting full-time and today lives and works near Prussia Cove in Cornwall. Her paintings are exhibited throughout Cornwall and nationwide.
Her paintings are abstract depictions of the rural landscape. Signature, muted colours contrast with recurring, bright shapes in carefully composed and structured canvases. She says of her work: “I have no preconceived idea what my paintings will be. I just paint – it happens.”
