HARVEY, Shirley

1945 - ?

As Shirley Y. Last, she was born at Ipswich in 1945, daughter of Archibald James Last (1908-1989) and his wife Edith Elizabeth née Baldry (1922-2004), who married at Deben, Suffolk in 1939. She married at Ipswich in 1966, John Harvey, and painted under the name of Shirley Harvey. Having worked as a pyrographer (pokerwork) for many years decided to study for a degree in Art and Design as a mature student which led to a love of watercolour painting. A watercolour artist focusing primarily on scenes of beautiful Suffolk where she has lived since her birth. About 2015, Shirley made a giant leap from being a hobby artist to a professional. She has exhibited at Art on the Prom at Felixstowe, Suffolk
