DOROTHY ANN SIMISTER

My main interest for many years has been reflections in shop windows, with their planes, surfaces, patterns and confusion of layers that continually change and catch just a moment in time.

As I mountain-walk a lot, in Scotland and abroad, I have a large collection of sketch books of landscapes, people and flora. The colours, shapes, atmosphere and light call for me to draw, paint and photograph.

I love plants and gardening, so have for many years been fascinated by seed pods, flowers and their extraordinary variety and exquisite delicate shapes. I frequently work in watercolours for the reflection paintings but also use oils and acrylics. While in ‘lockdown’ I have been painting my changing garden plants, in all mediums.

I studied Fine Art (painting), with a subsidiary of Ceramics, at Camberwell School of Art in the late seventies gaining a B.A. Hons. After this I qualified with a post graduate teaching certificate at Sussex University. I continued to teach art and crafts around South East London for many years before travelling around India and South East Asia. On returning I became part of a studio group called New Moon Studios in S.E. London, continuing to teach drawing, painting and becoming a part-time ceramics technician as well. I stayed in London, until moving back to the North West in 1995 and now live in Hebden Bridge.

I am continuing my colourful paintings of reflections in shop windows. Also now experimenting with looser landscapes, inspired by sketches made locally and around the world.
