Philippa Threlfall

Philippa Threlfall has been making relief murals in ceramic since the 1960s.  Together with her husband and partner Kennedy Collings she has completed over one hundred major works on sites all over the United Kingdom and overseas. Some of these were made for private clients, but most were commissioned for display in public situations - shopping precincts, banks, building societies, an airport, hospital and office developments. Philippa still lives in Wells, Somerset,  

In 2020 during lockdown, Philippa has been concentrating on painting interiors of her house in Wells, which all have her unique, hallmark style and beautiful colour palette and ar available for sale at Heritage Courtyard Gallery.

Philippa studied Illustration and Ceramics at Cardiff College of Art and went on to qualify as an art teacher at Goldsmiths College London. She taught ceramics and painting part time for six years at North London Collegiate School in Edgware, and during this time began to receive commissions for mural work. She left London for Wells in 1967 to marry Kennedy. He had trained as a historian at Trinity Hall Cambridge but was at that time still working for C & J Clark, the shoe company, whose head quarters were and still are in Street in Somerset.
