Some years ago I made good friends with the students on my Access to Art course at Stroud College. Many have them have blossomed into proactive artists in different fields of the art world.
My friend Jilly Cobbe had the preview of her show of work at the Amberley Inn Stroud yesterday evening.
Like myself her art is inspired by animals, and this show “Encounters” depicts animals she has met or encountered in a variety of locations.
Along with meeting other artists there I also witnessed the sale of her largest painting (see above). It is great to see artists reaping the rewards of their hard work and knowing that whoever buys it will hold their purchase dear to their heart.
I did my best but the photos here do not do Jilly’s work justice due to the lighting. Artist Jilly Cobbe on the right here below…..
