Textile artist Lara Sparks will be presenting her ‘London Landmarks’ lampshades & cushions collection at Shoreham Art Gallery in November 2018.

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.

Although, I am a self-taught painter, I have gained a lot of inspiration from the work of other artists, notably from impressionist water-colourists like Edward Seago, John Yardley, Edward Wesson, Nina Engle and Trevor Chamberlain.

We spent the next six months living on platform two of Moorgate Tube Station. The V1s drove us out of London and we evacuated ourselves to the safety of North Wales. Respite, then the V2s struck, silent and insidious harbingers of evil. Again we fled, this time to an isolated farm somewhere in So...
Art Classes and Tuition
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.
