(10 September 1926 – 28 May 2008)

Beryl Cook was an English artist best known for her original and instantly recognisable paintings of people enjoying themselves. Beryl spent the majority of her life living with her husband John in Plymouth in the UK, it was here that she found a lot of the inspiration for her art. In 1995 Beryl was made an O.B.E, the same year that the Post Office reproduced one of her paintings as a 1st class postage stamp.

Following her death in 2008 one of her largest exhibitions was held at the Plymouth College of Art, over 50,000 people visited the event. Future events organised by Beryl’s family have continued to attract visitors in their thousands.

2020 Will see the opening of The Box, in Plymouth which will have a permanent store and exhibition celebrating the work of this beloved artist.
