    Ishbel McWhirter
    Elected to RCA 1994

    Born London,1927. Began painting in North Wales in 1953. Studied at A.S.Neill’s Summerhill school and then under Oskar Kokoschka at his ‘School of Seeing’ in Salzburg.

    Kokoshka encouraged her ‘lively un-English palette’ which has resulted in her vibrant watercolours and oils, often of the Menai Strait - a continuous theme in her work. But, she is best known for her portraits which include: Melvyn Bragg, Monsignor Gilby, Sir Kyffin Williams, Tom Conti, Germaine Greer and Lord Longford.
