Eleanor King originally studied Foundation Art at Harrow Art School and went on to become a graphic designer with a commercial studio in London. Years later after studying for another career and raising her family, Eleanor returned to the art world in 2015 after a painting holiday in Scotland inspired her to explore the technical challenges posed by watercolours. It is this medium in which she now focusses and since moving to Devon much of her practice reflects the local environment:
“Serene light, gentle colours in a calm space, mists drifting, playing with distant horizons – I feel the need to capture arresting views that give me joy, and share them.”
I am delighted to have a number of Eleanor’s original paintings for sale in the gallery depicting views of Dartmoor. I also have several works available as high quality limited edition giclee prints of Eleanor’s sea and estuary scenes. Do come and have a look!
