SHAND, Arabella F Loudon

1963 - ?

Arabella Shand

Born in London in 1963, daughter of Keith N. Loudon-Shand and his wife Geraldine C. née Francis, who married at Westminster in 1959. She married in 1991, Ian Donald Herries Gibbs but still works under the name Arabella Shand. She studied at Colchester Institute 1983-1984 and at Kingston Polytechnic and City and Guilds of London Art School 1986-1988. Using oils she employs a delightful spectrum of seductive gentle colours (soft pinks, olive green, pale blues and more) with engaging compositions to lead the eye around the painting. Her main inspiration starts with domestic interiors and family life and it is the manner in which Arabella manages to put all these aspects together in a sensitive and original way which makes this artistís work stand out. Her exhibitions include Decorative Arts, London; Bonhams Contemporary Decorative Arts, London; Seven Dials Gallery, London; Cadagan Contemporary, Lavenham; Clarendon Gallery, London; Hintlesham Hall with Cobold and Judd fine art, Ipswich and The Platform Gallery, Mistley. She had her studio at Stoke-by-Nayland, Suffolk but now lives in Carmarthenshire, Wales.
