About : Mare Coulthard - Artist based in Carlisle, Cumbria

I have been painting and drawing for as long as I can remember.

My initial working life was spent in art studios who did designs for textiles and metal boxes.

I continued to do commissions (mainly portraits)

during my children growing up.

I did a Graphic Design Course as a mature student and was in partnership with two colleagues for a period of seven years.

I was approached by a charitable organisation who taught art to over 55's until they lost their funding---I then went on to teaching indepently,

and have done so now for almost 20 years.

My work is very varied because I teach in all mediums, and enjoy the challenges that I am presented with by my class. My main commission work is portraiture, greetings cards and house signs.
