About us

We are Eleanor and Andrew Bradley, based in Cambridge, UK. Andrew is an Emeritus Professor at the University of Cambridge and Emeritus Fellow at Wolfson College Cambridge. He retired in 2016 from his position as Head of Surgery at the University of Cambridge and consultant kidney transplant surgeon at Addenbrooke’s Hospital Cambridge. Eleanor held the position of Assistant Director of Research in the Department of Surgery at the University of Cambridge and also retired in 2016. We have a long track record of publishing high quality research papers in the field of experimental and clinical transplantation and have contributed to several text books on organ transplantation and stem cell biology.We have a longstanding interest in the visual arts, and a particular passion for Modern British Art. We have regularly holidayed in the Lake District National Park and are especially attracted by the Cumberland landscapes of Sheila Fell. Retirement from our full-time academic posts has allowed us to turn our academic skills to cataloging for publication a comprehensive account of the work of Sheila Fell, whom we feel deserves greater recognition for her major contribution to Modern British Art.

The final phase: We are about to submit the final version of the catalogue raisonné  to our publishers, Lund Humphries and will no longer be able to accept submissions of paintings for the book. But we’d still love to hear from you if you have a Sheila Fell painting that we haven’t seen! And thank you to all of those wonderful people who have welcomed us into their homes to photograph their Fell paintings for the book, not to mention curators of public collections and owners of commercial galleries. Lund Humphries tell us the catalogue raisonné  will be published in Spring 2025, but before that, a major exhibition of Fell’s work will be held at Tullie in Carlisle, opening in November 2024.
