Wilhelmina Barns-graham: chosen by Linda b
Wilhelmina Barns-Graham, 8 June 1912 – 26 January 2004. As a child she showed very early signs of creative ability. She set her sights on Edinburgh College of Art from which she graduated with her diploma in 1937. She moved to St Ives, Cornwall, in 1940, to escape the war.
Through the course of her life Wilhelmina Barns-Graham's work generally lay on the divide between abstract and representational, typically drawing on inspirations from landscape.
"In my paintings I want to express the joy and importance of colour, texture, energy and vibrancy, with an awareness of space and construction. A celebration of life — taking risks so creating the unexpected." (Wikipedia)
