Shrewsbury is the country town where i was raised from the age of 11, after my family moved from the city.
The painting is a nostalgic impression which invokes memories of this beautiful country town as a child.
Shrewsbury is the home town of Charles Darwin and has listed buildings throughout, those which fall into each other as they age over the centuries. There is a lot of medieval history there.
Hi! I'm Kelly, born in Manchester, and raised in Shrewsbury (UK). I have lived in Melbourne for nine years working as a nurse, whilst knowing i have an artistic creative nature. I first discovered my artistic streak during my school days, and this subject resulted in one of my best grades. In recent years i decided to tap into my artistic self and join a regular art class. For two years i painted with Linda Gibbs (a well known Melbourne Artist). It was here i had the opportunity to enter my first exhibition, submitted two portraits and sold my first piece! I currently paint in a formal art class weekly with the guidance of Adriane Strampp. (also a well known Melbourne artisit). I am inspired by people across the life span and nature. I use oil on canvas and have painted many portraits, streetscapes & some still life. My artwork is really a journey of discovery, of the life around me and of my potential.
