About Celia: Celia Forestal Smith is a full time artist and tutor.

Exhibiting and teaching for many years, Celia’s work ranges from graphic illustration to the highly abstract, capturing the spontaneous and intuitive nature of living in the moment – a type of expressive freedom. Her art is enriched with a deep appreciation for nature and landscapes, saying that “observational drawing and painting is the most effective and powerful way of deeply connecting to nature. It allows a process of slowing down, of appreciation and awe. It is soul nourishment.” MAC guarantees a full refund in the event of cancellation due to COVID restrictions.
