About Mary Ratcliffe
Throughout my career working in industry and education, I have continued with my personal art work. Exhibited locally, in London, and Europe and USA.
Previously Head of Fashion and Textiles at Colchester School of Art, lecturing on Degree, Foundation, and MA programmes.
Now retired from education I have the opportunity to focus on my work, a member of the Colchester Art Society, and show in galleries, and at specialist events and sales.
The continued basis for my work involves drawing and painting from observation. Enjoying working with a broad range of materials and processes. Inspiration found in nature and explored through colour and textural experimentation. Imagery is applied to textiles through painting, stitch and screen printing.
