Product description

Original art by the renowned local artist Venus Griffiths - Lakeland scene


Image size as seen - 31.5 X 26 cm approx.

Her work can be found in numerous galleries and on their Online sites.

"Venus was awarded a scholarship to Wakefield Art College after which she was employed, in industry, as a Technical Illustrator until leaving work to become a full-time mother. After the children had grown up she returned to her own education completing a Foundation/ Fine Arts course at Trent Polytechnic, Nottingham and later qualifying as a teacher. Whilst in Nottingham she taught Art and Screen-printing to full-time and recreational students as well as running Art Workshops for the mentally handicapped.
Venus moved to Keswick in 1988 and took on a part-time teaching position running an Art Workshop for Lairthwaite Adult Education Centre. She also set up her own studio, at home, working in watercolours, acrylics and mono-screenprints. She has now given up teaching in order to concentrate on her own work, which is exhibited in several galleries and invited exhibitions in Cumbria and the Northeast. The name Venus comes from her maternal Grandmother but to the relief of her daughters has not been inflicted on the next generation."
