Celia Lewis started her art career studying life and portrait charcoal drawing with Signorina Simi in Florence. She is now a member of a dynamic art group and several art societies in Surrey where she lives. She has taken part in group, private and national exhibitions and has won several prizes including the 2005 Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolor (RI) medal.
Living in the country Celia is lucky enough to be able to keep hens and guinea fowl in her garden and, along with nearby cows and sheep, this is where she finds her inspiration. Although working mainly in watercolor she has now branched out into acrylics. Celia is also a glass engraver/sandblaster. She has co-written two previous books on hen care.
