Stella Walls

Studied at Kingston art school, left after only one year because I felt my expressive art was being stifled. Went on to Trinity Music College on an oboe scholarship and found my outlet for expression in my playing. Became a professional oboe player but never at any time did I give up on my art. I studied with many professional artists privately in London,Twickenham and eventually Horsham where I attended Northbrook college and many evening classes. Now retired I have more time for my sculpture and creative writing with great thanks to Creative Future for their help and encouragement.
