Sunrise over Luskentyre

Cheshire artist Allie’s watercolour paintings depict her love of nature.

‘The delights of watercolour painting never fail to enthral me. There is transparency, fluidity & spontaneity. Working intuitively wet in wet, I enjoy the excitement of expressing characteristics and features that inspire me”.

Allie graduated as an illustrator, however, over recent years she loves the freedom of working as a watercolour artist based in Cheshire – creating paintings by season, evocative seascapes, landscapes, florals and wildlife.

Allie runs watercolour & sketching workshops from her airy studio gallery set in beautiful surroundings, Arley Hall & Gardens and also Toolerstone House. Workshops are designed to cover a range of topics and techniques in a relaxed environment for complete beginners to the more experienced artist.
