Gillian Simpson


I’m a painter and watercolour artist with a passion for Cornwall and have been lucky enough to have taken part in Newlyn School of Art’s year long programmes and also to exhibit in St Ives over a number of years.

Lockdown has inevitably brought many changes, and for me that has kept me closer to home, giving opportunities for different projects and to explore other media. From working on a series of portraits I was delighted to be asked to paint a commission last year. I was also approached to teach adult art classes, not realising how my years of running corporate conference calls would be put to good use in converting classroom sessions into successful online classes.

At Open Studios this year I will have some original works, prints and cards of my Cornish watercolours and inks available to view or buy. I’m excited too to be able to share some new work, including sketchbooks and works in progress and I’m really looking forward to this first real opportunity for feedback, and for some great chats about art, materials and how I work.
