Shirley Foote

Shirley Foote studied at the West o England College of Art. She set up a ceramics workshop in the early 70`s and worked professionally at this until the mid-90`s when she began painting full-time. Her ceramics have been shown nationwide and since 1998 she has shown her paintings at numerous exhibitions across the country.This is how Shirley describes her work process: “For my work, my sketch book drawings have been a vital part of my work process in the past, though I find I am relying on them less and less nowadays as starting points for my paintings. I work with images; memories stored subliminally. I try to dig beneath the surface, to go behind and beyond what is there, It is only when I start to push paint around the canvas that the journey begins”
