Nova Bailey (4/11/1938 -7/11/2022)

Sadly we have lost a highly respected and valued member of our art group. She will be greatly missed.

When I left school I wanted to do dress design at college but my parents couldn't afford the eldest of their five girls not earning her keep. I had a mixture of jobs but then set up a successful catering business with a friend though I never lost the wish to do something in the art world. I went to several courses at Scola for painting which I loved and after retiring from the catering I was lucky enough to be able to join TAG. I am interested in different techniques and media and hope to continue to expand my repertoire.
