Art Brokerage: Beryl Cook British Artist: b. 1926. In her 20's Artist Beryl Cook worked in the fashion industry, which inspired her interest in the way that people dress and how they look. Beryl started painting again when she used her sons painting set. Her new hobby grew when Cook became the owner of a theatrical boarding house in Plymouth, and started painting the eventful night life of the fishermen and sailors of the town. Beryl Cook's inimitable style and cast of characters has led to a hugely successful career spanning four decade. All very impressive for an artist who is entirely self taught and remains very modest and somewhat surprised by her success. "I don't know how my pictures happen, they just do. They exist, but for the life of me I can't explain them." Art Brokerage has many well priced listings of prints by British artist Beryl Cook. Listings wanted.
