About

Born 1931, in Aspatria, a small mining town in Cumberland, Fell studied at Carlisle School of Art, later attending St. Martin's School of Art, London, where she studied under Roland Vivian Pitchforth and John Napper. Fell settled in London but the dramatic landscape of the Cumberland region remained the focus of her artistic vision. Again and again she returned to capture this arresting landscape, its ever-changing seasons and the people who harvested and farmed the land. Fell was elected as one of the youngest ever Royal Academicians. Tragically, Fell died at the age of 48 after an accident at home in London. The exhibition includes works from private and public collections, focusing on Fell's landscape and coastal paintings and including some of her lesser-known works and portraits of her family and friends.
