It was with great sadness that we heard the news of the death of Eileen Martin, a wonderful friend and creative character who had been exhibiting with Skylark Galleries for the past 10 years. Eileen had been unwell for some time, but was fully involved with the galleries until the end. She was much loved by her fellow artists and those who knew her through her wonderfully vivid paintings.
Eileen, who lived and painted in a studio in her home in New Malden after working as a German translator and living in Germany for some years, was a regular exhibitor at the Affordable Art Fair and Skylark events. Her indomitable character and independent spirit are already greatly missed.
A posthumous exhibition of her abstract paintings work is being planned at the galleries. Full details will be posted here when these are finalised.
