Melanie GAS Chair

Congratulations once again to Deborah Kreczmer for having two works selected for the first live exhibition with the Society of Women Artists.

About Deborah's work - "my inspiration to paint comes from immediate surroundings or travels. My paintings are strongly influenced by colour and the use of mixed media. Landscape, building, seascape , still life or semi abstract with a contemporary twist. I have exhibited at Patchings Gallery, Society of Woman Artists, Appart , SAOS and featured in The Artist , Leisure Painter magazines and Surrey magazines. I work from my studio, in addition to running small bespoke workshops and commissions and go every year to Cornwall painting with a group of artist friends. I was delighted when my art work was accepted for the second time by SWA. The first painting is call Easter Egg Hunt inspired when my niece and nephew visited , and the second is called Summer Garden."
