Bridget Davies trained at the University of Leeds, gaining a 1st class BA in Fashion and Textiles. After a spell of teaching fashion and illustration in Milan, she worked in the fashion industry for many years as an embroiderer and designer. After several years living abroad she returned to England and to her first love, painting figures and illustrating fashion. Since then, Bridget has been working as a full time artist and creates her beautiful work from her West Sussex studio.

Bridget’s charming, inky paintings evoke the glamour of a bygone era.  The ladies depicted in her works are elegant and confident, but also playful and have quirky sense of mischief; they are used to stealing the show.

She says of her work “That classic ageless beauty expressed by the fashions of the time holds a fascination for me, managing to be refined and elegant but with its own uniquely flirtatious undercurrent. Fashion illustrators of the 1940s and 50s have always been a major influence on me.”

Bridget likes to work on paper and experiment with exciting media such as Dutch metal, crackle glazes and glitter glass.

She says of her process “I adore the flow and freedom that comes from using water and ink; the chaos is for me the random element in life that represents unpredictability and the constant unfolding of the unexpected.”

Bridget has exhibited with Quantum since 2016. We have shown her work at art fairs in the Far East to great acclaim.
