Midge ACE

 

My name is Midge (a.k.a. B. Mullally).

Welcome to my portfolio.

I am a self-taught Cheshire based professional contemporary Artist & Arts & Crafts tutor who also specializes in Web Design.

From a very young age I could spend hours drawing and painting. My mother greatly encouraged my drawing skills from a young age.  My grandmother who was an accomplished artist in her own right, introduced me to oil painting at the age of 12 and taught me many skills and techniques that I have developed and adapted as I grew older.

As a young child I was fascinated with nature (most especially the landscape) and would spend many hours drawing trees & plants. I can recall observing every detail of the work of the Old Masters, church statues and stained glass windows!

However, as life happens my career took me in other directions to be a Senior Software Engineer & Project Team Leader for nearly 20 years and even though I had a busy lifestyle as a single working single mum for most of my adult years, I would still find time to draw, paint and craft. Art and crafting in all its forms has always given me immense satisfaction and enjoyment.

Given a change in my circumstances in 2009 (i.e. a back injury & redundancy), I set up my business ACE (Artistic Creations & Exhibits) and am now working as a freelance artist & web designer, whilst also sharing my skills and enjoyment of art and crafts teaching painting and drawing to others in the form of workshops and demonstrations in painting , drawing, crafting, calligraphy & illustration.

All the while I am also working to build a portfolio of work for exhibiting and selling.  As you will see by my current portfolio my work is quite varied including works in pastel, acrylics and mixed media, oil and watercolour.

I have also grown to enjoy and experiment with crafting techniques and calligraphy. Although I don’t claim to be an expert in these areas I have over the years studied skills & experimented by creating many works such as cards, scrapbooks, and journals for friends and family. All of whom have been amazed with the quality of work and come back to ask for more! These experimentations in learning have enabled me to develop a comprehensive skill range in this area.

Occasionally I take up commissions & would be very interested in the challenge of community & other project work. My love of nature has also made me a keen gardener & photographer much of which forms inspiration for my work.

I hope you enjoy my portfolio which is constantly updated from time to time and would be interested in any comments or feedback or let me know if you would like to see a painting exploring a particular technique or medium?!
