Consuelo Child-Villiers

Consuelo Child-Villiers studied Sculpture and painting at the Accademia di Belle Arti in Florence, Italy and History of Art in London.

Consuelo's eccentric and colourful early years were spent living between England and Italy. She studied sculpture in her first years' training at the Accademia di Belle Arti in Florence, Italy, followed by three years studying painting.

In 1982 she moved to London where she studied History of Art and exhibited her work regularly for a number of years.

Travels in India, Nepal, Thailand and Sri Lanka and a period spent latterly in the Caribbean; combine to give a fresh and contemporary approach to her timeless subject matter, itself coloured by Consuelo's exotic Anglo/Irish and Italian/Spanish ancestry.

From acutely observed mythological references in which luxuriant androgynous forms interact with the purity of line and lithe grace of wild animals, the vivid portrayal of flora bursting into bloom, to her deep empathy with animals. all bear the unmistakeable hallmark of Consuelo's work.

A true romantic, continuously exploring her passion for mythology and mysticism; constantly fascinated by evolving contemporary arts, Consuelo now lives and works in London and continues to exhibit both in France and England.
