CHRISSIE EVERARD Expressive Artist

I used to be a writer who painted

but now I'm a painter who rarely writes. But whatever art one pursues it is the connection with the subject, the observation of interactions and the curiosity of making connections that create something above the ordinary state of life.

I've been interested in material and process over the years and experimented with multiple mixed media on a larger scale in landscape. In lockdown I've been studying oil techniques in greater depth with Norfolk Painting School and discovered new ways of painting and linked with my life classes my painting interest has moved to the more figurative form. I'm now working on pulling oil techniques and figures together in an expressive way and perhaps merging them into landscape.
