Sue Deighton

I missed this weeks club meeting due to work but am reliably informed that the visiting artist Sue Deighton was very good.

I have looked online and found some information about her and include it below.

Sue Deighton is known for the vivacity of her work - bold and free. A love of colour makes her work exciting and stimulating. After graduating from Leeds College of Art she was appointed as a lecturer at the Hull College of Art, and has had painting twice accepted at the Royal Academy.
She works freelance as a demonstrator for Winsor & Newton and the SAA (Society for All Artists), and regularly attends art fairs for art material manufacturers, Winsor and Newton produce Artisan water mixable oil paint, Liquitex acrylic paint-Col Art, Artists water colour and brushes. Sue has travelled to Africa and India as a guest Art Tutor for Indus Tours and Travel thus enabling her to research on location wildlife, her favourites being Elephants and Tigers. Sue is also a regular feature writer for the Paint magazine.
Sue works in Community Education and leads Paint Experience workshops and presentations to Art Clubs and schools, in her spare time writing features for Art magazines, her specialist field is wildlife painting and she travels to Africa and India to sketch, research and recharge her batteries.
Sue's DVD and book on colour combined with workshops in all mediums is enhanced by 30 years teaching experience in schools, colleges and institutes of further education. She has a long history of exhibitions and has twice been selected for the Summer exhibition at the Royal Academy and many times at the Mall Gallery in the open exhibitions of the RI, RBA and the NEAC. She is currently exhibiting at the Woburn Safari Park (wildlife) and the Parish Church Shiptonthorpe (Art for Churches).

This profile was dated Dec 2009.
I would love to include a pic of her work but copyright means I can't without permission.
Perhaps a club member who has been inspired will send me something in Sue's style ?
Next week is the clubs Christmas lunch so no actual meeting as such.
I am informed that there are some plans to hold maybe two exhibitions next year as the club have been asked to display at a fun day at Monk Fryston Hall in line with The Queens Jubliee.
