Haidee-Jo Summers gained a BA Hons degree in illustration but knew, even before graduating in 1994, that her future lay in fine art.
She has been exhibiting and teaching painting for the last 21 years and won her first major award in 1997 with the Royal Institute of Oil painters.
Haidee-Jo Summers is much in demand as a tutor but now limits her teaching to occasional painting holidays abroad and weekend workshops. She concentrates fully on painting and gallery commitments.
Her work features fresh and vibrant brushwork coupled with keen drawing and observational skills. This results in lively celebratory paintings that glow with light and sing with colour.
Well known as a plein air marine and landscape painter she also develops favourite themes in the studio and is an avid sketcher. Her work features regularly in The Artist magazine and she has filmed a DVD with APV films.
Since 1997 she has won many Art Awards and has successfuly exhibited in the UK
