Brigid Mullally (Midge)
Various contemporary artworks including landscapes, floral, wildlife, portraits and life drawing in pastels, acrylics, oil, inks, & watercolour. Provides tuition to all ages and commissions are welcome.
I am a Cheshire based professional & versatile Artist & Art/Craft tutor of painting (in any medium), drawing, calligraphy & illustration. Open to commissions & project work. Enhanced CRB checked.
My main aim is to share, encourage, inspire and promote art for everyone to enjoy! Whilst much of my own work is inspired by the landscape and the changing seasons, I also have a great love of nature, the human form and wildlife. Capturing colour and atmosphere combined with texture and pattern is the real passion behind each painting. I find great inspiration experimenting with various art and crafts resulting in a mixed variety of work including paintings and handmade art and junk journals.
Besides working on my own portfolio & exhibiting I also teach various art workshops throughout Cheshire either as group sessions or on a one-to-one basis. My teaching methods are primarily focused on developing fundamental skills and techniques in drawing, painting or crafting using a wide range of media to facilitate an individuals development of their own artistic style. My workshops provide others with an opportunity learn and explore new artistic methods, mediums and techniques. Core subjects that I teach include acrylics & mixed media, pastels, oil painting, life drawing, landscape painting, portraiture, calligraphy and mixed-media art journalling.
Occasionally I organise small group art holidays, painting & sketching trips. I am also a keen participant in community based art projects providing demonstrations and workshops in various art forms to schools & local community art groups.
