Denise Schoenberg in her painting studio
My love of nature and watercolours inspire me to paint flowers, seascapes and old weather worn subjects. I find inspiration in the coast of East Anglia, the botanic gardens in Cambridge, and the Island of Mull. I use both pure and experimental watercolour techniques, sometimes combining watercolours with ink and mixed media. I exhibit my paintings as a member of the Society of East Anglian Watercolourists and Cambridge Open Studios.
As a well respected artist and art teacher in Cambridge I am dedicated to helping students develop their watercolour painting and creativity through thriving watercolour classes and demonstrations.

I am a member of the Society of East Anglian Watercolourist and a regular participant in Cambridge Open Studios.
I specialise in floral painting and coastal landscapes, often drawing inspiration from the botanic gardens in Cambridge, the Norfolk coast and the Island of Mull. I am also interested in creating texture in watercolour pen and ink.
Learn. Create. Inspire.
I believe every artist needs encouragement and support in their creative process and that is what I endeavour to provide.
