This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

A member of the White Stag Group* and also the Society of Dublin Painters, Phyllis Hayward was born in Portsmouth, England, and first studied art there at the Portsmouth School of Art.  She moved to London where she studied part-time at the Central School of Art and came under the influence of Basil Rakocsi's Society for Creative Psychology.

In 1940, Hayward moved to Dublin and began exhibiting with both the White Stags and the Contemporary Pictures Gallery.  Her work was characterized by a dynamic use of line and bold colours.  Together with Rakocsi, Kenneth Hall, Mainie Jellett, and Patrick Scott she represented the most experimental stream of art at that time in Ireland.

She was also a regular exhibitor at the Irish Exhibition of Living Art. Hayward left Dublin circa 1951, returning to London where - apart from brief periods spent in France - she remained until her death.
