“I spent some amazing years teaching creative arts” says Polly. “The art and drama spilled over into workshops for children and adults, people are always interesting, creative and enthusiastic and there is no way to stop”

Her belief in “curiosity as the driver and creativity as the infinite product” leads her to explore the many properties of chalk paint.
She continues to use acrylics in her mixed media work and oils for loose canvas sketches. Chalk paint offers a contrasting canvas of possibilities, including decorative furniture commissions. 

"I want every Paint pArty to be 'a comfortable challenge of newfound techniques to surprise and inspire, along with all the laughter and fun of a shared creative experience'… I think it's a bit crazy too!" 

Patricia Bell

From her earliest memories Patricia has had a love of making, which has led her along a varied creative path. 
She took up Education as a career after qualifying in 1968 and that gave her the opportunity to share that passion for all things creative with young people and adults.

The countryside surrounding Hawkesbury Upton, where she lives, provides endless opportunities to explore and draw ideas from, although she firmly believes that inspiration is all around us, wherever we live.

Pat sees herself as a mixed media textile artist and tutor. Incorporating a wide range of techniques and materials in her work, she also loves the challenge of creating 3D structures.
