Artist Spotlight - Chosen At Random From This Year's Exhibitors:

Carol Shaw

I am a fully qualified art teacher and left full time teaching in 2010 to become a professional wildlife artist. I have a studio within the Saltburn Studios and Gallery complex in Saltburn. My work is in many galleries throughout the North of England. As a member of MIWAS I am able to show my work in an international forum on a yearly basis. I have recently established my website to offer my images on a variety of products. I hope this will make my work available to all as I have kept the prices very competitive. I have recently started showing my work in art fairs to hopefully reach a wider audience.

Venue: Captain Cook Inn Gallery/9

Medium: Wildlife Artist
