Artist : Beth Walker
“My passion for painting stimulated from an early age by the teachers at my infants school. My enthusiasm for painting did not fade away and I continued to dabble with my art over the years. It was in the early 1970’s when my circumstances allowed me to start painting seriously. A friend and I shared our love for painting and we encouraged each other to try different techniques and mediums. Throughout my years of painting I have been commissioned to produce paintings for civic buildings, the Premier of Western Australia, CEO’s of Multinational Conglomerates and various private collectors, I even was encouraged to give a piece of artwork to Princess Anne on one of her visits.
I moved from Australia to London in 1980 and my painting once again had to take second place to a regular income.
But after I retired from the 9 to 5 routine of daily work, I moved to the Lake District in the North West of England and now have time for painting at long last.”
Note from Curator : This piece of wall art suits a hallway or landing or even a conservatory.
Quote : “A painter should begin every canvas with a wash of black, because all things in nature are dark except where exposed by the light.”
The canvas we use is the same as art galleries require, it’s exactly the same quality that’s used in museums to retain the shades and colors, and keep an amazing high quality appearance for upwards of 200 years.
The printing technique is Giclee, a high quality inkjet procedure using pigment ink on a 410g/m2 premium fine art matte canvas producing an astonishingly sharp print.
The frame is of 1.5” thick premium grade lightweight wood.
Wired and ready to hang with felt pad to protect the wall behind……a superb product carefully handcrafted by our experienced art professionals.
