Chris attended Lowestoft Art School and, after bringing up a family, 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 one time. The subject matter of her paintings is faces, figures and groups in present day situations. Her prints display a greater diversity of subject matter.
Chris' work has been sold throughout East Anglia and in the London Mall Galleries and gone to Europe, America and Canada. She has won prizes in the Eastern Open exhibition, taken part in the Print Fair in Norwich and London and sold work in the great Art For Cure exhibitions in Suffolk. She regularly has work in Mandells Gallery in Elm Hill. Chris belongs to two groups. Artworks, a group of thirty artists from across all of East Anglia, and Breckland Artists.
I am interested in shape, line and colour, and try to produce personal interpretations.
