Anita Townsend MA.
Chairman of Gwynngala Art and member of Drawn To The Valley.
I run local workshops and classes in drawing and painting, create pet portraits and write regular illustrated Nature Notes (by Bluebell). I exhibit regularly locally, and previously in London.
Works on paper, also work in oils and acrylics.
Wildlife, nature, birds and animals and poetry are my subjects and my love and inspiration. Charles Causley, Ted Hughes, and Edward Thomas, after Shakespeare of course, are my current favourite poets.
David Hockney and Henri Matisse, Claude Monet, J.M.W. Turner, and the incomparable Albrecht Durer are my masters.
I trained at Trinity College, Dublin, Stourbridge College of Art and Cardiff College of Art.
