The WILD WOMEN painters are BIDDY PICARD and her daughter GRETE BOANN PERRY, who have lived close to nature all their lives. 
BIDDY PICARD

Slade-trained Biddy’s collection spans a lifetime of painting and ranges from early abstracts, monoprints, stylized oils of the Penwith peninsula, still life, pen and wash harbour scenes to her current pen drawings of young women.

GRETE BOANN PERRY

This is the first showing of Grete’s acrylic paintings in this country, though she has had several successful exhibitions in the USA. 

Dancing with colour and vitality, they reflect her life experiences of growing up in Lamorna woods,  sailing in the Atlantic and Pacific, sleeping under the stars in American deserts, living in voluntary simplicity in deep woodland and undergoing rigorous Buddhist meditation training.  

Her pictures speak in symbols and colour and connect us to the earth and the whole cosmos in much the same way as Aboriginal ‘dreamtime’ bark paintings.

DAISY DUNLOP

The fourth ‘wild woman’ is the jeweller DAISY DUNLOP. 

She grew up on the Lizard peninsula then lived and worked in New York where she developed an interest in working with resin to create jewellery, often incorporating small intriguing inclusions. 

Now back in West Cornwall, she makes beads of random shapes into necklaces of great subtlety and has become one of our most sought after jewellers.

PAULINE ZELINSKI

The potter PAULINE ZELINSKI flies in the face of convention in her intricately decorated earthenware pots. Unexpected  juxtapositions of hue are built up layer by layer with underglaze paints, resulting in pots of singing colour.
