Following Cook’s first exhibition at The Plymouth Arts Centre in November 1975, the self-taught former seaside landlady instantly won the popularity vote.
Her flamboyant paintings of portly ladies and other exuberant characters were drawn from a lifetime of people watching – much of it in her Plymouth home.
Despite her colourful pictures Beryl was actually quite a shy and retiring lady.
In 1994 she received the Best Selling Published Artist Award from The Fine Art Trade Guild and in 1995 was awarded an O.B.E.
Sadly Beryl Cook died on 28 May 2008 at her home in Plymouth at the age of 81.
