Glynis Mills HSEA was Promoted from Full to Honorary Full Member in recognition of the enormous support she has given the Society. She was honoured to win in 2013, explaining: “It was Terence Cuneo who wrote to me, accepting me as an Associate when I applied to join the SEA in its first year. Last year I worked very hard producing many prints so that I could pick the six best – it paid off.”
She also regularly attends SEA workshops and draws in her sketchbook daily: “To me sketchbooks are better than a photograph. looking through them inspires new pieces of work. The majority of them are drawn from life and just a few from photographs – I can easily see which is which – life drawing has more spontaneity.
“My own ponies and cats are used to posing, but to have a horse held, as we do at a workshop, allows you to ‘crack on’ with onepainting, rather than continuously having to start several at a time or move. Through the SEA workshops I have made some really good friends as well as improving my skills as an artist.
