Bronia Gardner

Bronia Gardner recently graduated of fine art after taking retirement.

This led to her first solo exhibition in Leeds and to pursue a new career in art.

Working from her studio in County Durham, she digitally manipulates and paints black and white photographs of social scenarios from times gone by.

​Bronia aims to breathe new life into these faded and often forgotten photographs, to be enjoyed by generations to come.

Using a specific colour palette, she gives them a new narrative, evoking a sense of nostalgia but recalling layers of lived memories and experiences.
