Twinkle Troughton is an artist living and working in Margate. Through her paintings, Twinkle skilfully connects the past with the present, exploring parallels between current social and political issues with the ancient moral lessons told in fables. She has exhibited both in the UK and internationally and has work in many notable private collections. Twinkle’s politically charged work has garnered national press attention, in particular her performative art-stunt collaboration with Tinsel Edwards, where the artists “kidnapped a banker”.
