Val Chandler

Living on the coast at Shoreham I find water a great inspiration for many of my paintings. I have been painting for 10 years and enjoy experimenting with different applications of watercolour, including the unconventional technique of using watercolour on canvas. I am a full member of the Association of Sussex Artists and show my work regularly in various exhibitions locally.

Papercuts on vintage maps and music sheets My choice of vintage maps and music sheet is as much a part of my inspiration helping me to tell new stories and bring new life to a piece of paper lost in a box or destined for the dump. Over the years, maps and music sheets have rekindled memories from numerous customers, the paper and the story unlocking that first kiss, memory of that day out or a simple future dream.

Art Classes and Tuition

“Inspired by Matisse” a cut out workshop with Sarah Duffield
Time: October 27 @ 11:00 am – October 27 @ 4:00 pm

Pick your colours, choose a theme, paint your paper, draw with your scissors and produce a wonderful Matisse inspired collage. A fun session including some colour theory, composition ideas and cake. During this session we'll look at shades and tints, we'll generate interesting shapes using our own objects or photographs for reference, we will not touch a pencil and we'll hardly pick up a paint brush! A really fun session aimed at creating a "painting" in a different way.
