Gill Townsend

Gill Townsend  


Gill has exhibited and sold work in galleries in and around Cambridge, including solos shows at 'The Michaelhouse Centre' and Wandlebury Park, group shows at the Arts Theatre with 'Storm Fine Arts' and also at the new gallery in Burnham Market, and 'The Darryl Nantais Gallery' in Linton.


Gill Townsend has painted all her life but has made it her career about ten years ago. She completed the first year of a BA in Art History and Fine Art at Anglia Ruskin University to expand on ideas and techniques.

Gill was artist in residence in November 2009 for the three days of the Newmarket Arts and Crafts Fair. She also shows at semi-amateur sites and last year one of her pieces was awarded 'best in show' by Antony Green RA, and a cash prize award for another piece of work in another show.

Gill describes her style is impressionist/ abstraction, heavily dependent on mood both internal and external with landscape her favourite genre. Most of her inspiration comes from Cambridge and East Anglian landscapes although having family abroad adds to this. Gill uses photography as a starting point and lets her imagination take over. She prefers oil but also enjoyes mixed-media collages.
