Artist of the Month

Bara Aylwin is Artist of the Month for April 2021. Bara's artwork is very popular at our exhibitions and when you look at her paintings they fill you with a sense of calm.

Bara is mainly self-taught. As a child, her interest in painting was fired by her late much elder brother, a professional artist. She has a passion for the sea which evolves from childhood memories of many hours playing on the rocks and foreshore on the Wirral Peninsular. Now she plays with thick paint, palette knives and rags to create works of atmosphere, colour, texture and movement, whether of seascapes or scenes of nature. For example, her garden is a constant source of inspiration.
