Awarded full membership

I am delighted that the committee of the SWA have voted for me to be a full member of the Society of Women Artists. I am honoured to be included in the list of very talented and diverse artists who are current members including portrait artists Daphne Todd OBE and June Mendoza OBE and sculptor Philomena Davis.

Each year an annual exhibition is held in London and some of the famous artists who have been members since the society started in 1857 are Dame Laura Knight who was elected president in 1932, the illustrator Mabel Lucy Atwell and the late Suzanne Lucas.

My journey towards this goal has been long and there have been highs and lows along the way but such is the lot of the artist!

About angela brittain

Each work I create has a search for “rightness” – an attempt to solve complex and often self-imposed compositional problems. They often have a tension below the surface. I work mainly in acrylics on board. People fascinate me but I’m not sure that I made a conscious decision to make people central to my work or if this subject chose me. I have a Diploma in Art and Design and worked for several years as a graphic designer and illustrator before finally returning to my first love of drawing & painting in 2008. I have taught art to children and adults and currently offer one-to-one workshops from my home studio in West Sussex. I have recently been elected as an Associate Member of the Society of Women Artists (SWA) and exhibit in London and the South.
