A personal and affectionate view of the rich and varied images of the locality.
stella murray whately“As a professional painter and printmaker, I studied at London Colleges from a very early age, starting with Junior Art School, where we went about the serious business of becoming an artist. Being exposed to historical fine art, the painting, and particularly the drawing inspired and guided me. The Italian connection at home gave the idea that Art is a normally accepted ‘profession’. 
My interest is in communicating, in an accessible way, a shared pleasure and recognition of what the world offers us as visual ‘treats’.  
My drawings and paintings embrace the representational and figurative image, including portraiture which gives voice to, and serves to support, the feelings of others – a basic duty of the artist (whether in paint or photography). 
I hope to communicate the enjoyment of interest and beauty of the ‘everyday’.”
