Original Pastel drawing, framed black glass frame by Christine Southworth

After a rewarding and successful teaching career I took early retirement to fulfil my ambition to become a professional artist working from my own studio in the North of England and in a studio I have in Canada. Several years ago I joined NEO Artist Print Studio;I work there most days producing etchings based on my research and travels. I like to work from life, developing unique interpretations of human and natural forms.

My main passion is for drawing, drawing helps me understand the world I live in and is a natural progression to etching. My favourite material to etch on is copper but I do use zinc and solar plates are ideal for any collage based designs. During my career I have been in many exhibitions: Society of Women Artists, Mall Galleries, The Royal Birmingham, Manchester Academy and many others. My most notable commission was for Diana, Princess of Wales.

I have recently been awarded full membership of the Manchester Academy of Fine Arts, and Society of Women Artists. I received the Barbara Tate Award in the 153rd SWA Annual Exhibition.
