Deirdre Borlase's paintings are often concerned with family life and things of the home. This watercolour shows objects from the kitchen table, arranged together so they create a patchwork of colours.
Deirdre Borlase was born in London, and studied at the Royal College of Art. She taught at Kingston-upon-Thames School of Art, Harrow School of Art and Morley College. Her work has been exhibited widely. She has worked in oils, water-colour and computer-based painting. Deirdre now lives in York, though after a stroke several years ago, she no longer paints. Her son-in-law, Stephen Gavin, who hosts the website, has indicated that she will be pleased to know that her donated paintings are still giving pleasure in hospitals.
