Original Prints by Tom Crittenden

We are delighted to exhibiting and selling framed and unframed prints of ink sketches by local artist Tom Crittenden.

Tom is based in Bury St Edmunds and says of himself: “I come from a family of artists. My father was an art teacher, my great grandfather was a professional artist and his father was a prolific sculptor who exhibited at the Royal Academy and British Institute.

When I left school I took a different route and did little art for the next twenty years. A couple of years ago I had an epiphany and started to paint and sketch. I quickly became addicted. Lockdown was a catalyst and fast forwarded my talent. I now produce sketches, watercolours and large canvases inspired by Suffolk.

All my creations are windows on to places I love to be. My artwork is inspired by colourful flowers, magnificent old buildings and beautiful skies. My style is nostalgic. I strip out all the noise and chaos of modern life. It is the opposite of these turbulent times. Pure frivolous escapism. I hope it lightens your soul”.

The framed prints are on sale for £35 and the mounted but unframed ones for £19.
