'Enrico's Eloquence' Ophelia Redpath wax and gouache painted illustration

Ophelia Redpath has had a career spanning 29 years 
of exhibiting in over 100 shows in Britain and overseas.
She was born in Cambridge, where she still lives. From 
1983 to 1984 she attended the Art Foundation Course 
at CCAT, after which she went to Homerton College to 
study Music and Education. At the end of a year, she 
left the course to begin her career as a full-time painter, 
which she has been doing ever since.
She regularly exhibits at The Wren Gallery, Burford; 
Cambridge Contemporary Art; the Russell Gallery, 
London; and the Darryl Nantais Gallery, Cambridge.
She continues to draw strength from her artistic heritage 
provided by her grandmother, Brenda Moore, and 
grandfather, Leonard Campbell-Taylor. Her mother, a 
pianist and musician, and her father, an English Don at 
Cambridge, introduced her to the possibilities of music 
and literature, which have become strong ingredients 
in her work. She recently had her latest children’s picture
book, “The Lemur’s Tale”,  nominated for the 2014
Kate Greenaway Medal for the best illustrated children’s
picture book.
