Celia Martine Pickering - mother, art teacher and artist.
Celia is an independent art teacher - Art With Little Pics (@artwithlittlepics) - teaching pre-school art classes, after-school art club and ladies' art nights from her home, and working in schools, providing art enrichment and therapy. She loves her job, encouraging her students of all ages to love and enjoy art, believing that art plays an important part in everyone’s development and encourages wellbeing and mindfulness.
During the 2020 lockdown Celia started painting and selling her artwork for the first time, via her Instagram @celiamartinepickering. Since then she took part in the Affordable Art Fair, Battersea, supporting Arts4dementia, donating 50% of all sales.
Her latest achievement was passing her training to work with people with dementia, and she now runs online art workshops for people with dementia and their carers.
Celia's artwork is simplistic and modern, sometimes bringing in botanical shapes and patterns. Her style seems to change piece by piece, as she explores her mood and feelings, which impacts her artwork. Celia's love for all things mid century and retro, from the music to clothes, to furniture and colour. You can clearly see this influence in her artwork.
Celia says ‘painting is my meditation, losing myself in the colours and shapes’.
