From infancy Chris has involved herself in image making, training first at Lowestoft Art School and then, during an Education degree at UEA, where she took up printmaking.
She paints mostly in acrylics with drawing in various media and prints from lino blocks on her 1826 Albion press. She uses the reduction method of lino-cutting which requires the whole edition to be completed at each stage.
Chris’s work has been sold throughout East Anglia, in the London Mall Galleries and travelled to Europe, America and Canada. She has won prizes in the Eastern Open exhibition, participated in the Print Fair in Norwich and London and sold work in the great Art For Cure exhibitions in Suffolk and the biennial Norwich Castle Open exhibitions. She regularly has work in Mandells Gallery in Elm Hill Norwich.
Chris belongs to two artists' groups: Artworks, a group of thirty artists from across all of East Anglia, and Breckland Artists.
I try to produce interesting but personal interpretations using the qualities of my media.
I sometimes feel that art is thought to be easy. It is not!
