Jennifer Davidson - Artist

After a successful career as a designer both in fashion and interiors, Jennifer studied Fine Art at the University of the West of England. Since graduation her work has been hung in the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, The Business Design Centre, Westminster Central Hall and the Mall Galleries in London and the Royal West of England Academy in Bristol, also in many other galleries and colleges. Her work has won many prizes and awards. She is a member of the Bath Society of Artists and Clifton and Clevedon Art Clubs. Her paintings are in private collections in Japan, Jamaica, Spain, Portugal, Monaco, France and the U.K.

Working mostly in pastel and acrylics she produces colourful landscapes, half real, half fantasy. Her occasional pastel painting workshops mostly held in January to March are enthusiastically attended. Prints and cards reproduced from her paintings are always available. Jennifer also paints silk scarves and makes bead jewellery.



Jennifer offers a number of one-day workshops thoughtout the year.


These popular workshops will be on the following dates;


New dates for 2021 will be added soon

The workshops usually run from 10.30 am – 4.30 pm each day with a break for lunch. Tea and coffee is provided. You may bring a packed lunch or treat yourself to lunch in the excellent restaurant 'The Ethicurean' based at Barley Wood Walled Garden. 

All materials will be provided but please bring any that you have, as discussion and comparison of the different qualities of a variety of materials is always interesting. 

You will spend the morning experimenting, exploring and selecting methods and materials, using different papers, soft pastels, oil pastels, pastel pencils, fixatives etc to produce some exciting results! In the afternoon using pastels, a finished pastel painting may well be achieved. 

Jennifer's studio is not very large, numbers will be restricted to 5 students each day, thus enabling everyone to have space and as much of her time as they require. 

The cost for the day will be £38 to include all materials, tea and coffee. 


To secure your place on your chosen day please send a cheque for £38, also stating your first and second choice of dates to;
