Mary Jewels

1886 - 1977

Born in Newlyn, Mary Jewels had no formal art training and was encouraged to paint by Cedric Morris. Her sister Cordelia was married to the sculptor Frank Dobson. Mary Jewels' naive, or 'natural' style, as she called it, may have influenced the artist Christopher Wood who spent time in Newlyn in the 1920s.
