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.
