Hi, I'm Polly Farrell. I studied art and art history at college but remained an amateur artist while I had a successful career in management. In 2017, I started 'Farrell's Art and Craft Emporium'selling prints and gifts at craft fairs in Sussex. I also set up an eBay shop and Facebook page. In June 2019,at my home in Saltdean (near Brighton,) I opened 'Steephill Studio and Gallery'. My signature style is colourful art deco inspired paintings with a faux stained-glass background. Saltdean is the perfect environment for me, with it's beautiful 1930's art deco Lido and Grand Ocean Hotel. I am also a keen sketcher and I produce graphite and coloured pencil work, usually portraits that capture a good likeness of the subject. I sell a lot of hand painted bottle lights - they sell quickly and I produce a variety of themes and colours. Scroll down through my products page for all the options available. If you would like to commission something specific, please get in touch via my email (firstname.lastname@example.org)
In addition to selling my paintings, prints and gifts, I have been commissioned to provide art work for a CD inlay.
I offer classes in basic drawing skills, coloured pencil work and glass & ceramic painting and I started a local Art Club which runs onWednesday evenings 7.30 to 9.30pm and Thursday mornings from 10.30am to 12.30 (term time).
My popular 'Glass Painting for Beginners'course is running again in February 2020, as is my beginners drawing course. If you are interested in my classes or any other events please see the 'Work' page
In October 2019, I took part in an exhibition at the ONCA Gallery in Brighton. I also opened my house as part of the Brighton and Hove Artists Open Houses at Christmas 2019, with 4 other artists, and we had a wonderful time! At the moment, my artwork and painted glass is on display at the Clarke's Art Shop Gallery in Brighton, upstairs at their shop on Bond Street. There is a launch weekend open to everyone on Feb 8th and 9th, running from 11am to 4pm. All are welcome so please come along! Steephill Studio and Gallery can be found at 22, Crowborough Road, Saltdean BN2 8EA.
