Edwina Broadbent’s paints in her studio above the ancient fishing village of
Mousehole in West Cornwall.
She is inspired by the wild elemental freedom and beauty of West Cornwall
which imbues her work with expressive energy and also paradoxically a
sense of tranquility. Her brushwork is expressive but carefully considered and
her palette brims with light and colour.
She moved to Cornwall in 2002. Her early childhood was spent in South
America and then North London and Hertfordshire. She studied fine art at
Middlesex University and more recently with the renowned art teacher Robin
Child at The Lydgate Art research Centre. She taught Art and History of Art at
The Broxbourne School and Haileybury College.
She is member of The St Ives Society of Artists, and an associate member of
The Penwith Gallery and the newly formed Penzance Studios. Her work is
regularly exhibited in local galleries, and in many solo and group shows and
is in numerous private collections in the UK and worldwide.
