Mary Smith

I work as an artist and Tutor in the county of Derbyshire. My studio is based at Banks Mill studios in Bridge St Derby. After christmas I will be starting some new art classes. These will take place on Thursday mornings 10am-12.00pm at the Broadway Baptist church community rooms on Broadway Derby.

I cater for all ages and abilities where beginners are most welcome.  I am also organising a programme of workshops for springtime and summer. Please do contact me if you are interested in the classes or workshops:  email  .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)

I accept commissioned work and am open to negotiable prices for my artwork and paintings, which can be viewed in the gallery section. Details of forthcoming and recent exhibitions are updated periodically.

I like to walk along the river banks, canals and streams watching country and urban life as they sit side by side letting nature soften the buildings in a very short space of time.

My work is a progression of the changes taking place constantly while small pockets of undisturbed areas remain the same including the old water courses of Markeaton Brook and the river Derwent which flow from the North of the county and on through the centre of the city before flowing  southeast towards Nottinghamshire.

These paintings are large scale works which show reflections on the surface together with plants above and below the surface giving me the opportunity to watch and record life in my county during the day or Night
