Contemporary Art in Cranbrook and the Weald

Freshers - new art to excite

        Home Merriecroft Forthcoming exhibitions Art @ Home About us Past Exhibitions

Karen Birchmore has fused her training and experience in textile design to her talent as an artist.  After a successful commercial career she

is now concentrating on painting. Inspirations from Dungeness, Hastings, Romney Marsh and also gardens such as Great Dixter and Derek

Jarman's have found their way into her work and her use of colour and texture, mark making and abstract form in her paintings create an

evocative impression of a place or scene. 'Freshers', her first exhibition at Merriecroft, is an exceptional opportunity to enjoy her work in the

company of a select collection of exciting new artists: Emily Pennock; Sophie Layton; and Lisa Hawkins, who have caught the attention of a-c-a

over recent months. Click on any of the images below to start a slideshow display.
