Sylvia Elsbury: Artist

Chard, Somersett

I moved from South Wales to Wincanton, Somerset about 20 years ago. Since moving to Wincanton I have moved to Dorset, Devon, Pembrokeshire and finely back to Chard in Somerset.

I am a self taught artist who didn’t really start painting until I retired. After retiring I joined the Axminster Art Society and have been very inspired by the demonstrations I attend. I bought myself some art materials; and started trying out different media and different styles of painting. I have now found the style I like to paint in, but I am still exploring different media.

As for what I paint, Well! I do like painting flowers and animal faces, but to be honest I will have a go at painting most things!
