Christabel Forbes’ Practice
Christabel trained at The Royal Drawing School after achieving a BA in Fine Art at Falmouth University. Christabel is also a teacher. In her work, as in her teaching, she tries to maintain a level of playfulness and spontaneity. The artist has a strong interest in reality and imagination and subsequently uses her art to re-imagine everyday scenes, curating new, expressionistic spaces full of life and colour.
Career and Awards
Christabel has established a portfolio of residencies and teaching experiences in the UK and abroad. Her works feature in private and public collections such as in The Royal Collection and Sir Michael Moritz's Heyman Foundation. She was also awarded the Wedlake Bell Award for Young Artist at the Chelsea Art Show (2018).
