ABOUT INGRID HAYDON
Ingrid Haydon was born in Sydney in 1945. Some of her earliest memories are of painting and drawing around North Sydney with her mother, Ingrid Rayner who was a well known Sydney artist.
Having won a scholarship to East Sydney Tech. at 16, Ingrid studied painting and drawing for two years then began a career as a textile designer, initially in a commercial studio then as a freelance designer. In 1966 Ingrid left for extensive travel through U.K. and Europe. Whilst living in London Ingrid studied painting and drawing on a scholarship and began a part time job in an exclusive school in Knightsbridge where she taught art to children, one of whom was the daughter of (an early) Dr Who.
On her return to Sydney at 21, she was employed as a designer and colour co-ordinator by artist Jan Riske, who ran a very successful fabric screenprinting business in Paddington at the time.
Married and with two young children, Ingrid returned to study painting at City Art Institute in 1982. After gaining a B.A. (Vis Art) she began part time teaching at Hornsby TAFE in 1984 and later at Meadowbank TAFE and the Workshop Art Centre, Willoughby.
In 1983 and 1984 Ingrid was a finalist in the Faber Castell Drawing prize and, in 1985 won the Willoughby Art prize for drawing, the following year for painting. Her work has been hung in the Sulman Art Prize and Dobell Prize for drawing at the Art Gallery of NSW.
Ingrid joined Access Gallery, Sydney in 1987 and continued to have solo exhibitions there until 1994. She also exhibited at Chapman Gallery, Canberra in 1991 and Penrith Regional Gallery in 1992 and many mixed exhibitions, including the Blaxland Gallery.
