Violet’s work reflects the diversity and fragility of human existence. The fears and insecurities we all experience and the absurdities and joys of being. Her work is emotive, influenced by personal experience and observance of the tragedies and struggles of life.
Violet graduated in 1983 from the University of East London with a degree in Fine Art.
She worked at the Natural History Museum in London for many years initially as a restorer of scientific exhibits and subsequently heading up the Museum’s Exhibition Production and Project Management Department. After retirement in 2014 she moved to the Isle of Wight and set up her own studio space in Ryde to continue her work as an artist. The work shown here is a small selection from her recent exhibition at the Clayden Gallery, Quay Arts.
Until 15th July her work will be at Aspire Ryde ARCH window gallery 35 High Street PO33 2HT and is best viewed Monday to Friday 10am until 4pm when the shop is open.
