Opened in Wood Street Indoor Market in 1998, Gallery/Studio 41 shows the work of artist maker, Shirley Pountney.

Shirley makes larger paintings in oils or acrylics on canvas, on a variety of themes, including landscape and abstracts. She also does smaller mixed media paintings on her own handmade paper using ink, watercolors and pencil, often embellished with beads and semi-precious stones.

Occasionally available are a collectible line of original one-off cards and sometimes textiles  - embroidered, dyed or experimental hangings.

Most afternoons you will find Shirley working in the studio, 2.00 -5.00. Open Tuesday to Saturday. Everybody most welcome - not just buyers!

Shirley was once head of art at Warwick Road Girls’ School, just off Wood Street. Shirley has also had 10 books published, and has had an Open House exhibition yearly at her home in Church End, Walthamstow Village, since 1988, enthusiastically supporting the very popular E17 Art Trail since it was set up.
