Giclee Prints by Kay Gretton

Kay Gretton [née Barcham]

Kay was brought up in Marston and went to school at Worton, Lavington and Dauntsey schools. She trained as a peripatetic teacher at Dartington College of Arts and then taught in Kent, where she married and had three sons.

She started painting in 2006, having suddenly developed M.E. and Fibromyalgia. She became disabled, losing her 26-year career as a manager, ‘cello/double bass teacher and orchestral conductor at Kent Music School.

Having lost the ability to teach, play and conduct, her creativity has been redirected through art. She says: “I have found painting to be an inspiration, giving me a new lease of life at a time when I had lost all my self-confidence and purpose to my life. I’m sure that it has helped with my recovery, especially as I am now enjoying a second artistic career, selling my works widely.”
She works from life, photos and her imagination. She has developed a distinctive divisional style of painting depicting the changing of seasons through a year or light changes through a day, using watercolour, pen and ink or acrylics.

The Francis Plume turbine which has been maintained by Millwright, Malcolm Cooper for the past 20 years, generates a small amount of electricity which helps to light the gallery. Right quote mark
