I exhibit regularly with Milton Keynes Society of Artists (Camphill Cafe, Willen and the Sherwood Gallery, Challenge House, Bletchley) and with Buckingham Art for All (the Woolpack Pub, Buckingham).
I studied art in Liverpool in the 1960s but ended up with a career in computing - programming and systems design. When my son was young I wanted to work from home, so I began painting commissioned portraits in pastels. After a brief return to office work in adult education, I retired in 2010 and resumed painting, switching to oils and developing my own style of work. Samples of my work can be seen on my website, www.paintingsbycharmian.co.uk
