Beryl Cook sadly passed away in her sleep yesterday. Cook was renowned for her picture postcard, fun loving, larger than life portraits and scenes. Overlooked throughout her career by the art establishment but loved by her many fans.
We like Beryl because of her single minded attitude in the face of criticism. She painted what she loved, always happy scenes that she thought others might enjoy. Perfectly in line with our thinking... love the art, then read what the art critics say... (consider this when viewing our gallery.)
