Hilary Cope  Artist and much much more

 

From an early age I have loved drawing and painting; I can see my bedroom walls, at age ten, covered in dinosaur drawings on wallpaper lining.

I experimented with oils and later water colour and completed a two year course with the Society of  Botanical Artists but it wasn't until I discovered pastel about twenty years ago that I felt I had found my way.  I love the fresh bright colours of this dry medium and find I can create some vibrant works.  I just love it, its very tactile albeit a bit messey.

I love all the arts especially poetry and have recently consolidated my own poems into book form.  I have been a volunteer at the People's Gallery for over ten years and I am now proud to be part of The Bridge, its a very friendly place and a great way to meet like minded people.  Yes, I'm very proud of our gallery.
