Antigone Neaum

Born in Norfolk in 1951 and not expected to do anything other than get married, Antigone Neaum followed a traditional course into secretarial work and office management. She always had an interest in drawing and painting but purely as a hobby, combined with strong making and craft skills and began teaching in the 1990s, both privately and through Adult Ed.,eventually operating in South Somerset with a variety of textile and design courses.

She returned to full time education as a mature student in 2000 gaining a 1st class honours degree in Print and Interior Textile Design, followed by an MA in Design Textiles. During these studies she became fascinated with the theoretical side of design - the social history, the effect of art and design on our lives and through this gained employment as a lecturer in Visual Culture for the University of Plymouth, followed by a position as Senior Lecturer in Visual Culture at the Arts University Bournemouth. She retired in December 2015 and moved to N Devon in order to pursue an interest in the theoretical and practical aspects of painting and drawing.

Currently she is Artist in Residence at Portland Art in Ilfracombe for
two days each week, where there is a dedicated studio space for painting and showing work.
