From a family of potters (thirty-nine generations), Matsubayashi was an engineer and kiln specialist. He re-designed and then rebuilt the Japanese climbing kiln at the Leach pottery during his stay there between 1922-24. At the 1924 Show Day at St Ives, he exhibited a study of a branch of Japanese medlars and two crabs at Lanham's Gallery. Later that year he collaborated with Katherine PLEYDELL-BOUVERIE on the setting-up of her kiln at Coleshill.
Originally from Sheffield, a descendent suggests that Matthewman may have moved to Cornwall in the 1920s. In 1937 he exhibited two paintings, Cornish Cliffs and A Quaint Corner at NAG. The following year, a painting of his was hung at the RA, from a sending-in address of 'Maryville' at Treen, Porthcurno.
A painting by Matthewman of a young woman outside a cottage and its garden - Feeding the Pigeons - was offered by Sothebys for sale in 2002.
Embroidery was exhibited by this artist at the NAG Summer exhibition of arts and crafts in 1928.
Maggie Matthews was born in Wales, and brought up in the Welsh mountains. She studied at Newport Art College, then Exeter College of Art and Design (BA, Hons).
She moved to West Cornwall in 1988, establishing her studio in Newlyn. She was married to the artist-craftsman Jonty HENSHALL and has exhibited work under this name. Upon their separation she has reverted to her maiden name Matthews.
She exhibits widely in the UK, in addition to locally in several private galleries, and her paintings have also been shown in New York and widely in the USA (1999-2000). Her work is represented in a number of collections. From 1996 she has exhibited regularly in mixed and solo shows at the Great Atlantic Map Works Gallery, St Just. From 2004 she has been showing paintings in group shows with Gallery Tresco, Isles of Scilly, and participating in the Affordable Art Shows in Bristol and London.
She is primarily engaged with abstract works inspired by the meeting of sea and sky, usually of intense and vibrant colour.
