Fleur Tookey

Fleur is a member of the Management Committee  of the Friends of Putney School of Art & Design.

Fleur first attended Putney Art School in about 1985, studying life drawing under Brian Carvahlo.  Years later she joined a summer course with Liz Elmhurst, followed by an inspiring course with Gavin Maughfling. She then had some happy terms with Ian Ellis, revisiting oil painting. She is currently exploring printmaking through day courses at the school.
Having obtained a Fine Art degree from Brighton College of Art in 1968, Fleur studied glassmaking and completed a postgraduate year at Stourbridge Art college. In 1969 she joined the Glasshouse in Covent Garden, soon becoming a director. Whilst blowing and selling her glass there, she helped to run the studio and gallery and keep it at the forefront of the studio glass movement until its closure in 1998. She then established her business Looking Glass Gates, creating special mirrors for gardens. Since its closure, she returned to painting and collage, using a technique that reflects the delicate patterns also seen in her glass.
At home in an Art School environment, Fleur is happy to support and help the friends of PSAD to raise money, organising the Friends merchandise and various workshops.
