Jean Foulds -Artist

Jean Foulds

I was born and grew up in Derbyshire, sketching at every available opportunity. I continued to find time for my art throughout my busy career in Leicestershire and became increasingly fascinated by the novel and amazingly articulate symbols used by young children, revealing their knowledge and concepts through their drawings as they grow towards our culture.

I developed a great respect for the capacity to convey information and emotion with the minimum of symbols and after I joined Russell Hedges′ painting group at Penzance School of Art my work has become entirely abstract or semi-abstract.
