Chris Williams

Chris draws inspiration, for much of her work, from the beautiful Shropshire landscape in the Bridgnorth area of the county.She studied Fine Art (BA Hons) in Newcastle and at the Laird School of Art. She paints using mainly oils, and captures the essence of  delightful country lanes and rural fields with her refreshing use of light and carefully observed detail. She draws on a daily basis to inform her work using graphite, charcoal and pastel.

Lino success

Kit Byron Low is enjoying success with her latest range of hand pressed lino prints, featuring images of birds. Currently she is developing a range of cards and enjoying the challenge of 'forcing' lino to create movement in the prints!  The range includes blackbirds, terns, owls, puffins and most recently pheasants.  These are available at the VAN Street Gallery, Shrewsbury, and are rapidly flying out!  They have been the top selling card range this Spring with our visitors.
