Shirley Foote
I trained at the West of England Academy (now the UWE) in the 50's.

I worked in ceramics for over 20yrs, before deciding in 1993 to paint fulltime. I wanted to say things that were not possilbe with the medium of clay. Growing up in the Wi;ltshire countryside ,on the edge of Salisbury plain has given me a deep love of open wild sometimes solitary places., which has influenced my work. I use landscape as a reference point only, then start pushing the paint around and let things happen.

I have shown in numerous galleries throughout the country including;

Badcocks.Newlyn. selected mixed shows. 2 person show
Goldfish gallery pz mixed and solo show
Penhaven. 2 solo shows selected mixed shows
Plumbline gallery mixed shows
Affordable art fairs Battersea and Bristol 1994--2010

At the moment I show mainly in the west country concentrating on solo shows approx every two years.
