Growing up in post-war Britain, Deirdre Turner’s early childhood was filled with bleak grays and beiges of a British boarding school. Her whimsical pen and watercolor paintings perhaps reflect a desire to re-frame those early years in brighter colors.
Deirdre’s work is displayed at the Mohawk Valley Art Center in Little Falls and Gallery 3040 in Old Forge.
