British artist Ursula Fookes lived 1906-1991. She was known primarily for her color linocuts, having studied under Claude Flight at the Grosvenor School of Modern Art from 1929 to 1931. Her work includes figures and objects in the Vorticism style.
She exhibited her works in the annual British Linocut exhibitions at the Redfern Gallery and Ward Gallery in the 1930s and also showed her work with the Society of Women Artists and the New English Art Club.
During World War II, Fookes worked in Europe running a mobile canteen for troops with The Navy, Army, and Air Force Institutes (NAAFI). The Imperial War Museum in London holds a diary she kept during this period.
At the end of her life, she retired to Wiveton in North Norfolk, enjoying her cats and casual study of ornithology.
