An exhibition of art by two sisters, Deborah and Helen Jago, takes place at Godalming Museum from 2nd to 20th May. The sisters were both raised and educated locally.
Deborah is a successful water colour artist of landscapes, still life and portraits. She also works in stained glass, and a variety of media in 3D, notably felting. She has previously held a solo exhibition of her art work at Godalming Museum.
Helen now lives and works in New Zealand. She graduated from the Ruskin school of Art, Oxford University with a BFA and subsequent MA. she also attended the Academia di Belle Arti, Perugia, Italy, where she was awarded a Certificate of Distinction. Helen is comfortable working in a variety of media from watercolour and pastels to acrylic, oils and gouache. Although much of her work is portraiture based, she moves effortlessly between life form to the imagination. Her paintings at the exhibition reflect a wide variety of styles. In the past she has exhibited at The Royal Academy, The National Portrait Gallery, The Mall Gallery and the Alpine Gallery.
Both Deborah and Helen continue to accept commissions, and this forms a large part of their current work.
