Open Studio Event for Alumna Artist

Impressionist landscape painter Nadia Day, Class of 1998, is throwing open the doors to her house and studio in Teddington on Saturday 26 November, so please go along and show your support.

The successful artist, who is inspired by the stunning scenery on her regular walks around Richmond upon Thames, has new paintings, prints and festive cards on show. They will feature familiar scenes from Richmond Park, Bushy Park, Hampton and the surrounding areas.

Favourite locations include Pen Ponds, Hampton Court Bridge and Richmond Hill.  Nadia also takes bespoke commissions and has exhibited nationally including The Affordable Art Fair. Her work is frequently featured in the press and she even hosts art workshops in local schools.

After leaving LEH, Nadia studied at Kingston University and then went on to get a Drama and Theatre Arts degree from Birmingham University. She describes herself as a self-taught artist and her career has evolved from working in illustration and advertising to her current large scale paintings.

Nadia says: “The main inspiration for my paintings is the power and beauty of nature. I always start with the sky.  I like working on really big canvases and usually paint from photographs I’ve taken. I work really fast and furiously with big paint strokes, which ensures my paintings are full of energy.  I’m always trying to be abstract but I can’t help but add the shadow and the detail and then everyone begins to recognise what the image is. It’s a contemporary and fresh take on things. Please do come along on November 26th and see some of my work for yourself.”
