Past Meetings

21st September

AGM  – 7.45 pm

Followed by

Heather Miller who will be painting an Semi Abstract Landscape

Heather says

‘I am influenced by light and how it changes our perception of the world around us and the colours we experience. The changing seasons, nature, sunsets and water all provide a rich mine of subjects for my art. I work chiefly in acrylics and acrylic inks which I find to be vibrant mediums that lend themselves to working quickly and expressively with a glorious array of colours.’
