Maria Barbashina is a Russian born artist who has lived in Lyme Regis for eleven years. She trained classically in art from the age of 12 and later at art colleges in Karelia and St Petersburg. This exhibition, her first at The Town Mill, features work in oils … portraiture, still life and paintings from Spain and Portugal. These painterly pictures show Maria’s refreshing engagement with colour, the brush stroke itself and personality.
Jennie Pearson is Australian born but having lived in Lyme Regis for over 30 years is not sure if she is British, Australian or perhaps even European! Her training was in Textile Design which has led to current work in collage, dyeing and print, usually on fabric but also on paper and inspired by her local environment.
