Mrs Laina West's profile

  • I run classes for complete beginners and improvers in watercolour, oils, pastel and drawing, from my studio at home. Small classes (max 4 people), all materials and refreshments included. Classes are on alternate Tuesdays from 10am-2.30pm
    Beccles Society of Artists - Public Vote Award. August 2012 & 2018. Southwold Art Circle - John Simpson Memorial Award. June 2014. Beccles Society of Artists - Bertha Babington Award for Pastel. August 2015. Beccles Society of Artists - Frank Delf Award

    Although I have never received any formal training I have been painting and drawing as long as I can remember! Born in Devon and brought up in Cornwall, I lived in Kent for 31 years before moving to Suffolk in July 2009.

    I am continually inspired by the countryside and sea and my paintings are my impression of the immense variety of colour and texture in our surroundings. I also draw animal portraits in pastel from photographs and am happy to undertake a commission for that special occasion.  

    If you are interested in any paintings you see here, or are considering a commission, please get in touch. I hope you like my work!   Laina
