About my work, Suppliers & Past Exhibitions

Christine Mannion Artist

U.K. Artist producing Original Art, Giclee Prints, Cards.

Essentially I am a 'maker’ who has evolved into a passionate painter, with my formal training in textiles, metalwork, ceramics and stained glass influencing my work. 

Needing a change from detailed and physically demanding work I started experimenting with acrylic mediums, soon a looser and unpredictable style emerged influenenced by the freedom of Jackson Pollock and the rich colours of Gustav Klimt. Spurred on in 2003 by my watercolour of snowdrops being selected by the 'Moorcroft' Pottery for manufacture to raise funds for ’Children in Need' charity, I dared to go public with my paintings.

I am now a prolific artist painting and exhibit in regional, and Welsh galleries. I sketch and paint whatever inspires me but masses of flowers are often irresistable In fields, verges and neglected areas of re-wilding. 

My focus is on growth habit, texture and movement not on an exact copy of what I see, to capture just a moment in time. Paintings can be semi-abstract, even abstract and are often described as ‘happy paintings'

Commissions welcome. 

Enquiries and appointments to view original paintings can be made by emailing artbychristine@btinternet.com
