Description

You are warmly invited to our Meet the Artist event on Tuesday 25 April from 6:30 to 8:30pm at the gallery.

Come and meet Michèle Franklin who will be showcasing her paintings and drawings.

Our curator Sarah MacDougall will introduce Michèle and together they will discussing the influences on her work.

Michèle was born in Vermont, USA, in 1958, the second daughter of a British-Jewish physicist father and an African-American teacher mother. As a young child Michèle drew all the time and by the age of five had determined to be an artist. Her family moved to England in 1966 and Michèle studied painting and sculpture at Camberwell in London, where she mainly produced figurative works, including expressive portraits and self-portraits. She continued her studies in Italy before returning to England where she worked part-time, teaching art therapy, drawing, painting and sculpture, for almost ten years.

Drinks and refreshments are provided.
