All artwork is original, made by me, inspired by my life and what I see around me, beautifully finished and ready to be enjoyed by you for years to come.

Chrissie Richards

8 Girls and 2 Boys’ is an intimate group of paintings from lockdown 2021.
These are paintings that invite you to stop and reflect on a calmer slower more mindful way of life…

I am a bit of a butterfly, but try to explore one thing at a time…

I create a series of paintings around a theme or process. They are all made simultaneously each one informing the others until they are fully resolved as a group.

Lately I have been thinking it’s a lot like creating a piece of theatre.

Everything has to be cohesive and work together but the whole series needs change of pace, variety and surprise to be satisfying and exciting.

I am an artist living in Brightlingsea on the North Essex Coast. I like to create quirky narrative figurative paintings.
Would you like to know a bit more about me?

We all see the world differently. Once a month I try to write a piece that sums up what has been happening in the studio or my life. I find it helpful to write down what I think and feel about things. People tell me they find my ramblings interesting or sometimes helpful, so that’s good to know.
Want to know how I see the world in words?
