Mary Fedden

A selection of paintings about birds in the snow by Mary Fedden (1915-2012).
Mary was born in Bristol and from an early age set her ambitions on being an artist. She attended The Slade School of Art between 1932-1936 studying under Russian theatre designer Vladimir Polunin. On graduating she painted sets for Sadler's Wells but decided against a career in stage design and returned to Bristol to teach art and work as a painter. In 1951 she married fellow artist Julian Trevelyan during her life-time she painted prolifically and there are many works that you can enjoy.
