We are pleased to welcome back Lynn Wilkinson to Cromford Studio and Gallery.
‘Lynne’s paintings are very popular; her animal portraits have an uncanny ability to engage the viewer. Regardless of subject matter, her pictures are saturated with vivid colours and created with vigorous, uninhibited brush strokes. In many of the paintings, the animals stare out of the canvas so intently that the viewer cannot help but return their gaze and, in effect, become part of the composition.’ Mike Smith – Derbyshire Life Magazine
Award winning artist, Lynne Wilkinson obtained a BA Honours Degree in Painting and Printmaking and a PGCE in teaching. Her inspiration is drawn from local rolling hills, farms, animals, and flowers, capturing the spirit of the subject with flamboyant and expressive use of colour and the tactile use of paint. Her work stays fresh and honest with many elements often spilling from one painting style to another, whether painting an animal, portrait, landscape, flowers, or a contemporary painting.
Pixalum have a love of strong colour and bold design and have combined these into their collections of jewellery and homeware. Their jewellery has been designed to appeal to a wide range of tastes by introducing delicate floral patterns through to bolder geometric designs that will work with a variety of wardrobes.
For the homeware range, they have introduced desk and wall clocks in simple forms that are highly patterned which will add colour and will brighten a room or office.
In addition to designing and applying their own surface patterns, each piece is formed and finished by hand in the UK.
