Estella Scholes


I find much of my  inspiration from walking in coastal locations in Wales, observing the eroding actions of wind and wave on rocks, breakwaters, ancient settlements and washed up beach debris.  This provides a rich source ofpainter and printmaker based in Crewe.  I originally trained to degree level during the 1970’s, and returned to painting when an en subtle colours, textures and ambiguous forms, their original shapes worn away almost to abstraction.


I prefer to let my observations linger in my memory for a while, to be further distilled and abstracted until shapes, colour and textural effects emerge onto paper or canvas as an essence of reality.


As a freelance, qualified Further Education tutor, with many years experience, I have run classes and workshops in both painting, printmaking, and handmade books, and have facilitated staff development activities.
