I am a graduate of the Ruskin School, Oxford and the Royal Academy Schools, and have exhibited in England Ireland and Portugal. My work is in private and public collections in U.S.A. Ireland, United Kingdom and Portugal. My full CV is listed on the paintings blog (link above)
In Feb. 2016 I moved back to England after 26 years abroad, and it feels so great to be back! I wanted to settle in East Anglia because I adore the feeling of space and the skies, and it has always felt like the right place for me to be.
I discovered a few months ago, from a long lost cousin, that my great Grandfather: William Walter Chambers, came from Bainton in Lincolnshire and was a coachman and picture framer, living just thirty miles from where I live today.
Since April of 2016 I have been creating a collection of landscapes which are painted outdoors in the fields of South Holland, Fenland, and Norfolk.
I have painted mostly in
Tydd St Giles, Lutton, Leverington, Newton in the Isle, Guys Head, Sutton Bridge, Holbeach, Wisbech, The Terringtons, The Tilneys, Gorefield, Fitton , Silverhill, Sutton St. James. Hunstanton, Saddlebow, and North Creake, and many other droves and dykes between.
My landscape paintings are a celebration of the unique atmosphere of the East Anglian Fens and of my return to England, my home.
I work in both tempera (pigment and size) and oil and this year I have been working exclusively in oil. I had a solo show in November 2017 in Kings Lynn. All details of this and future exhibitions are on the Facebook page @thelma.chambers.art all welcome!
