Gill Blower
Portrait & Watercolour Artist


Artist Gill Blower photo  I began drawing portraits as a child.   Then I discovered watercolour painting - and the challenge of working with the added element of colour!

Recently I discovered watersoluble graphite pencils - an irresistible medium for sketching!   "Whooper Swan Landing" is an example of these pencils in use.   So now I need to make time for portraits, painting and sketching!

Frances Schaeffer Quote, Art is a reflection of Gods creativity, an evidence that we are made in the image of God I am a Christian, and enjoy living with my family in a village at the edge of the Derbyshire Peak District.

It's a dramatic change from my seaside childhood in Jersey.    But just 10 minutes walk away is Carsington Water, a reservoir which attracts many of the shorebirds and waders that I watched as a child, so absorbed that I might not notice the approach of the overdue school bus!

We love to travel as a family - usually in an ancient camper van, sometimes backpacking - but we also enjoy the luxury of being able to walk by the waterside in odd moments. Or in my son's case, running or thrashing a mountain-bike around it!

 The sky, the birds, the reflections on the water . . . just let me get my sketch pad  . . !
