About Bridget Hobson, artist

Art is my heart’s delight! Born in the year of the Monkey, I’m forever doing and creating – sometimes spinning my wheels, but mostly having fun. Oil and watercolor are my preferred media with a style ever changing and expanding, as is my life. Creating art keeps me healthy and happy – a drive that must be fulfilled. Owning an art school for 14 years and teaching art to all ages for over 19 years, has taught me creativity on demand. Now is a quieter more introspective time in my life and I am completely enjoying!!
