Shelagh Ashley

Shelagh has loved painting and drawing ever since she could hold a brush

and pencil. Although her ambition was to become a freelance artist, she

was instead encouraged to pursue a career in banking. Her love of

painting meant that she was constantly being asked to paint commissions

for friends and work colleagues.

Her particular love was for portraiture, and it was during a studio portrait

session with her local art society that she realised that she could help

fellow painters who were struggling to get a likeness. This inspired her to

train to be an adult education tutor. As a result she spent nearly 30 years

teaching watercolour classes and giving demonstrations to art groups.

In 1998 she organised her first painting holiday for her students, taking a group to the Charente region in France, the

first of many. She has since tutored holidays across the continent, as well as in Norfolk and the Cotswolds.
