This auction is raising proceeds for The Hepatitis C Trust
Arabella was born in Yorkshire, UK in 1959. She graduated from Chelsea College of Art in 1986 with a Masters Degree in Fine Arts painting. She has exhibited in London, the UK and India, Calcutta. Her work is found in private collections in London and Europe. Ross’s Father was an artist, filmmaker and photographer, her Mother a ceramicist and linguist. She says “I was brought up with the teachings of the Indian philosopher Jiddu Krishnamurti (1895-1986), and aged 20 (fascinated with Indian culture, it’s life embedded in me,) I went to live in India for a year, working and travelling. Aged 33, I returned to India for three months on a scholarship funded by the British High Commission in Calcutta, to work with twelve Indian artists in an Artist’s village. In 2009 I trekked in the Himalayas from Ladakh with Rebecca Stephens – the first British woman to climb Mount Everest. India has always been a thread running throughout my life.”
