Chrissie Everard LSA

I was brought up on the north west coast of Lancashire with it's wide sandy beaches, tidal pools and big skies. The brooding Pennines lurked in the easterly distance and the Lake District a day’s outing. I’ve always been out in nature and spent hours watching the tide ebb and flow, the sand shift and settle. I've set myself against strong winds and desert-like storms, climbed sand-dunes and waded through high tides that crept along the coastal road. More of my recent years have been in the Midlands and Norfolk but I still seek out those wild places. I've studied with a select range of leading artists including Michael Porter, RWA and Caroline Hulse, FRSA whose techniques and approaches to their own work influenced my direction as an abstract and expressive creator. I work in a range of media using landscape, in its broadest sense, as my main inspiration. Over the years I've been selected to exhibit at some significant galleries and public spaces, and been elected as a member of several Art Societies. I'm currently a member of Leicester Society of Artists (Elected 2016).
