Coffee break Artists

coffeeWe are delighted to have the occasional ‘coffee or lunch break artist’ who drops by our workshop events to share a refreshments’ pause and to spend a little time getting to know our group, and where appropriate, to offer a few tips and tricks of the trade. Our sincere thanks go to them for these impromptu visits which are much appreciated by all.

Victoria Crowe studied at Kingston School of Art and the Royal College of Art, London, before being invited to join Edinburgh College of Art in 1968, where she taught drawing and painting until 1998.

While the full range of her painting covers landscape, still lifes, portraits, self-portraits and interiors, much of her work defies such precise categorisation.
