Epsom and Ewell Art Group



Nicola Hughes


I started painting just under 2 years ago by attending classes at Sutton College of Liberal Arts. I had not picked up a pencil or a paintbrush in a creative way since I was at school (which is too many years ago to admit to) due to working as a nurse and bringing up an extended family.  I am only at the beginning of my journey and have yet to find my 'thing' but I'm thoroughly enjoying finding my way and have met some really lovely people so far.
I veer toward Still Life and have just started learning how to paint flowers in watercolour despite my medium of choice being acrylic.
When I first joined Epsom and Ewell Art Club I was horrified at the thought of ever being able to exhibit anything. However, I have been able to produce work that I think is 'decent' enough to put into 2 exhibitions this year. I have many more ideas of what I would like to put on paper, now I just need to find the time.
