PHYLLIS McDOWELL

R.I.P Phyllis, a truly lovely person inside and out, loved by so many in Folkestone where she lived and the many places she visited and spent time at.

I first met Phyllis at an open day at her studio where she also lived, very close to myself.  As soon as I saw the front of her house I knew she had taste…..Pink heaven!
I helped her with some social media promotion and did some blogs about her and her teaching.  She was a very talented artist, loved by so many people.  I attended her class and learnt so much from her, she fed my thirst for painting and the arts.
Her favourite painting was the first one below of her daughter Lucy McDowell.
Spending time with many in the community and supporting causes her name would always pop up at the many social events.
She will be missed by so many people, I still cannot really get my head around that I won’t see her again.
It was so nice to see her painting out in the community, capturing so many memories, I particularly liked the one she did out on the Harbour Arm of the group that were playing.  I am not sure how she managed to get the painting completed as so many friends old and new would stop, admire and chat.

Her paintings were shown far and wide at the many exhibitions to promote her work or even just so many people could admire her unique pictures.
My thoughts and prayers go to the many people she called family and loved with all her heart.  It was a joy to have known and spent time with you  Phyllis, I will remember you always.
All my love Karen xx
