Valma Cheffins

Artist

I started etching during the sixties, this developed at Barking and Redbridge Colleges under Harry Eccleston, Master Designer for the Bank of England, and with Michael Rothenstein and Valerie Thornton. My themes are the decorative aspects of architecture and the natural world. I design and print these etchings myself. I first exhibited in London in 1974. I have shown my work with the Printmakers' Council, the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers, the United Nations, magazine fairs and the National Trust. My etchings have been shown on Harlech and East Anglian Television. They have also been seen at the Guildhall in London. In 2009 and 2010 I exhibited in the Society of Woman Artists' exhibitions at the Mall Gallery in London. read full statement
