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.
