Glynis Hughes - Prints and Cards
Glynis lives on the Essex/Suffolk border with her partner and cat. She was really inspired by a lovely story from a friend who used to know Beryl Cook, whose work she had always loved. Beryl used to disappear into her studio to paint and could often be heard laughing to herself. This really truck a chord with her and I thought how lovely to paint something that makes you happy.
She was trained and qualified as a textile designer but has always painted: landscapes, flowers etc. Inspired by that story, Glynis thought she would try and paint a few mad hares, which did actually make her laugh quite a lot. She then branched out into other daft things: stalking pheasants, hares on stilts and horses in the hot tub!
