Jazz Drawings

Shirley Sheppard



“While I do work in oils and acrylic, I have a love of watercolour because of its transparency and the well thought out spontaneity which I employ when using them. Colour is for me the essence of them all. My work does not portray a wider social meaning. It is to evoke a feeling of immediacy and to query the narrative that passes between characters, often depicted from literature, mythology, dance and music.”.............Shirley Sheppard

My work is at blandscliff gallery and studio, 9 Blands Cliff, Scarborough UK, and other selected galleries
