…Ronnie Cruwys. Now Ronnie has been commenting for ages and in May last year did a guest blog for us.
She says: The two pics attached are hot-off-the-press pics of my latest drawing of the Holloway road, which is part of the ancient highway – the Great North Road. The road continues up into York where I am just starting on another section. My streetscapes are getting around!
and: ‘I was born in Kent, grew up in York, went to school in Bahrain and studied architecture in Edinburgh and Sheffield. I married Iain in 1990 and moved to Staffordshire where I worked for 13 years as a conservation architect on the repair and maintenance of churches and historic farm buildings.
I made a career change in 2012 when I began drawing full length streets which I hope will stand as true architectural records . I am a student on Aidan Hart’s Icon Painting Diploma run by the Prince’s School of Traditional Arts. More about this in another blog…
We live in Staffordshire with a dog, two cats and a tortoise, the latter who joined our family when Rod Stewart first sang about Maggie May.’
Isn’t Ronnie’s work fab? (Lin)
and she ends with: Once again, thank you so much for my prize – I have used some really lovely sable and squirrel hair brushes from ‘Rosemary’s brushes’ which Aidan advised us to get. However, it wasn’t until I read your post that I understood the real characteristics and qualities of these brushes. Wonderful stuff, thanks Lin! You are remarkable! – Ronnie
Ronnie chose The Paintbrush Book as her prize.
