Leicestershire based artist Christine Mannion has a background in textiles, ceramics and metalwork studied at the Lanchester Polytechnic in Coventry. Christine has been designing and making Tiffany style lampshades and traditional leaded panels for many years
she felt she needed a change and so embarked on experimental paintings using acrylic mediums, aiming for a looser style, admiring the freedom of Jackson Pollock, Gerhard Richter and the colourful work of Gustav Klimt.
Inspired by masses of flowers, wild and derelict areas, adding textures and movement to capture a moment in time. Christine favours a low perspective, homing in on a small patch of interest, and rarely produces panoramic views. She describes her work as 'Semi-abstract or abstract. Loose and textured with a certain amount of unpredictability.'
In 2003 her watercolour 'Snowdrops' was one of the selected designs to be manufactured by the Moorcroft Pottery raising funds at auction for Children in Need.
We are pleased to have a collection of her limited edition and artist signed open edition prints in the gallery.
