A member of CDS in the 80’s, Glynis Barnes-Mellish is one of the country’s leading portrait painters.

In April 2007, Glynis won first prize in the BBC series Star Portraits. Winner of the Daler/Rowney Watercolour Award in 1988, she has also been a major contributor to many books on watercolour painting, as well as her own books - Watercolour Workshop and Watercolour Workshop II. She has lectured, run workshops and demonstrated extensively throughout the U.K and Europe. Born in Kent, Glynis studied at the St. Albans School of Art 1971-1972 then onto the West Surrey College of Art & Design 1972-1975 and the after a brief sabbatical went back to the St. Albans School of Art 1981-1983. By constantly exploring the way in which the unique qualities of watercolour can be used to produce light and vitality in her work, Glynis has developed a skill that captures not only the subject’s likeness but also their very soul in a single moment of time.
