Artist Chris Court fell for the beauty of the moor lands when she was a child. Born in Dorset, she would spend many family days admiring the beauty of the moors, so much so, that she now lives on the edge of Dartmoor where she is always on the look out for interesting scenes to feature in her wonderful pieces.

Chris creates her work at home in her summerhouse studio, however, the pieces that she creates are born out in the open where she takes photographs, sketches and records spoken word about the scenes. Using this holistic approach she creates some amazing pieces which she paints from a more emotional grounding to help convey feeling as well as depth, movement and expanse of space.

By using artist quality materials, Chris helps to ensure that if the pieces are properly cared for, their colour and vibrancy will last a lifetime of pleasurable years.
