Chickens and Leeks
(Oil on canvas, 2005)
Born in Gloucestershire in 1944, Petronella Haldane studied sculpture at the City and Guilds Art School London (1966-1968). Marriage brought her to Scotland, and after raising a family, in around 2000 she took up painting. Landscape (plein air) and still life are her favourite subjects, both founded on sound drawing in any medium.
