Irina Garmashova-Cawton UKCPS Silver
My Name is Irina Garmashova-Cawton I am a professionally trained artist with over 30 years experience. I spent 6 years training at the St Petersburg Fine Arts Academy where I learnt to work in many mediums. After leaving the academy I began my career as a professional artist in St Petersburg where my works of art were sold throughout the city of St Petersburg. My paintings were also exhibited in St Petersburg, Holland and Germany and more recently in England.
The majority of my day is spent in my studio where I am working in different mediums including Oils, Pastel, Pencil and watercolour. I have found that my greatest pleasure comes from using colour pencils for my art. This allows me to do very precise detailed work and gives to me full control of the medium. The majority of my works are pets, landscapes, still life, and botanicals, which are subjects close to my heart."
