Gabriela Denny Segura Paintings
Gabriela Denny Segura was born in Madrid in 1972 and travelled extensively before settling in England. She now lives in London and works in her studio in Battersea. She studied in Florence at the Cecil Graves Studio in 1990/1 and subsequently at the Charles H. Cecil Studio from 1999 to 2002. The teaching method employed at the studios is closely based on 19th century atelier practices of drawing and painting portraits, the nude and casts of classical sculpture.Following a degree in Art History at the University of Edinburgh, she worked full time with John Ward CBE in his studio near Canterbury from 1995 to 1997 as his assistant and apprentice. During 1999 and 2000, she assisted John Ward and Gordon Davies with the Millennium Mural at Challock Church. In 2000 she was selected as a Queen Elizabeth Trust Scholar by the Royal Warrant Holders Association and was awarded a scholarship by the Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation in Canada. These awards permitted her to return to Florence to specialise in Portraiture. Her portrait commissions include the Rt. Rev. Crispian Hollis, Bishop of Portsmouth and Dr. Donald Rees, Warden of Hugh Stuart Hall, University of Nottingham. She was elected Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts in 2000.

Artist's Statement:
I see painting as a contemplation of the world around me. The more I paint and observe, the more I am amazed by the beautiful complexities of Nature. From the seemingly modest - the silver scales of a fish - to the turn of a head and the radiance of living breathing skin, I try to capture and bring this wonder into my pictures.
