Daphne Padden RMS NDD 
(1927 - 2009)
Miniatures - unframed

Daphne Padden was educated at Rosebery Grammar School in Epsom and attended the Epsom & Ewell School of Art. After college she became a freelance designer, producing posters and publicity material for the British Transport Commission, the Post Office Savings Bank, the British Diabetic Society, ROSPA, P&O, Trust House Forte and British European Airways.

 

 

In 1976 she took up painting “for Art’s sake” working in watercolour where her delicate touch in both line and colour gave all her paintings a whimsical feel. Whether it is her studies of wildlife or landscape, the viewers’ eye is always drawn to the natural balance and extraordinary detail that Daphne achieves. She was elected a member of the Royal Society of Miniature Painters, Sculptors and Gravers in 1984. Her work is exhibited in galleries throughout the South East and London.

This is the earliest work we have seen by Daphne, an oil was painted in 1948 of a Post Mill. This, we think, is the Mill Church, Reigate, which was converted to a Chapel of Ease to St Mary’s Parish Church Reigate in 1880 and is believed to be the only consecrated mill in the country. It stands close to Reigate Golf Club and is still in use as a Chapel of Ease.. If it is this mill, there is some artistic interpretation of the subject and its surroundings. The picture is not for sale but we thought you would like to see it.
