Edwina BROADBENT
1945

Edwina Broadbent spent her early childhood in South America. Her father was Trevor Waymouth, mother Sybil Waymouth (nee Hancock), brother Nigel Waymouth (artist). After studying at Harrow School of Art and Middlesex Polytechnic, she taught art and design at The Broxbourne School and Haileybury College in Hertfordshire till 1997, then began to paint full-time. 

She moved to Cornwall in 2002. Painter of semi abstract landscape and still life, with energetic, but sensitive use of colour and form. Drawing is usually the starting point, but the paintings are developed intuitively. She attended painting classes with renowned art teacher Robin Child.

Edwina has long-standing personal and family connections with West Penwith (Eleanor HUGHES, nee WAYMOUTH, from Lamorna). Influenced by modern twentieth century artists such as Ivon Hitchens, Richard Diebenkorn, and Henri Matisse.
