Dorset artist Chris Wilmshurst has built a reputation as a popular painter of scenes from around her local town of Wimborne, as well as further afield. It is easy to tell where she gets her inspiration from when you see her vibrant and unusual landscapes and townscapes, but she also loves painting flowers and gardens, still-life, people and animals. She creates work in a wide variety of media and styles and is always keen to experiment with new ideas.
Chris studied art at Leeds University and went on to teach in Sussex before moving to Dorset. Her paintings have been bought by people from around the world. She exhibits in venues around Dorset, Wiltshire and Hampshire, and is a regular participant in Dorset Art Weeks.
Please view the gallery page to see examples of her work, many of which are for sale.
Chris regularly exhibits and sells her work during the popular DORSET ART WEEKS.
