Christabel Forbes


Christabel Forbes is a young colourist whose individual treatment of landscape is unmistakably her own. She was born in 1991 in Courbevoie, outside Paris, of mixed French and British parentage.Christabel trained at The Royal Drawing School, after taking a BA in Fine Art at Falmouth University.

She has built up a portfolio of residencies and teaching experience in the UK and abroad, based around her use of colour to evoke people and places.

In her work, as in her teaching, she tries to maintain a level of playfulness and spontaneity.
