Full Description

Carolyn Cann studied at Wimbledon School of Art (1955-59) and at the Royal Academy Schools (1959-62) where she was a Silver Medallist. At the Royal Acadey Schools she met and later married her fellow student, John Sergeant. She had several one-man exhibitions in London, at the Fine Art Society, Colnaghi, Hazlitt, Gooden & Fox, the Waterhouse Gallery and Waterman Gallery. She also showed at the Leicester Galleries, Roland, Browse and Delbanco and elsewhere. In 1983 John and Carolyn bought an old run down farm house near Builth Wells in Powys, mid Wales. The house needed such extensive renovation that it took many years to complete. After their two sons had grown and left home she was able to devote more of her time to her painting, often specializing in beautifully studied still life studies.
