Painting brings sunshine to a rainy morning

On Saturday 7th April a good crowd braved the weather to listen to Gill Scriven, artist, writer and children’s book illustrator, talk about her life as an artist. Gill’s presentation was the best mix of entertainment and information. She brought along examples of her children’s books and illustrations as well as her paintings, many of which reflect local landscapes, and told us about her background and techniques. It was a real treat to experience her beautiful work. It lifted the spirit on such a dismal morning, which is what, of course, art can often do. Gill’s session was also great fun as you can see from the photo below. If you missed the event and wish to view more of Gill’s work or contact the artist simply go to

This is the third Saturday morning session in a series inviting artists to talk about their work, previously we’ve heard from author Peter Traves and sculptor Bill Sample. On 2nd June our artist will be Mary Keith with her choir the Mere Singers.
