OUR ARTIST IN RESIDENCE
Contemporary British Artist based on Surrey / Hampshire border
"I paint from my studio at Applegarth Farm in Hampshire and I love chatting to visitors who drop by. I am lucky to live and work in the beautiful Surrey & Hampshire countryside, but painting and sketching at the coast, is where I am most inspired. Check the opening times before visiting and feel free to get in touch.
You could also browse my online shop to find your ideal painting; If you've never bought original art before, have a look at "How to find the perfect painting". If you think you need more bespoke artwork to fit a particular size or interior aesthetic, check out "How to commission a painting". Buying art is such an exciting process - enjoy the experience!
Come and enjoy some art!"
Alison Orchard Art
Alison paints direct from the landscape, both at home and along the Dorset to Cornwall coastline, using these initial experiences to inspire the large gestural paintings created in her studio. Her curiosity with layered surfaces and marks have led her to explore various media, painting with oil or acrylics and more recently encaustic wax, often combined with metal filings, marble dust and coloured charcoal.
