In JOINT SECOND Place: Mackenzie Thorpe AND Kerry Darlington

Huge Congratulations to two artists who both put their heart and soul into their work.

 In THIRD Place: Danny Abrahams

 Danny has always drawn on nature as a backdrop to his paintings and in doing so has helped us all to reconnect with precious time spent walking and exploring...

...this past year, more than ever, these walks, even the short ones, have proved to be a valuable part of the day for the whole family and Danny's prints and paintings bring back that same feeling of wonder and calm and peace...

 In FOURTH Place: Richard Blunt

During the last twelve months Richards paintings have helped people to recognise and celebrate the wins in their life that sometimes get lost in the everyday...

...a pat on the back for running your own business, a reminder of what you can achieve... or the realisation that your love is getting lost in the everyday and needs to be remembered in the small moments that we grasp in amongst routine...

Marie's beautiful detailed original paintings celebrate afternoon tea, cakes and parties and everything Alice in Wonderland! These often tiny artworks are displayed in artistic clusters and often added to over time :) 

MLW A Stunning original painting of the Queen of Hearts with a large white rose in her hair and a gold background. The frame is very wide and ornate and a stunning red! Painting by Scottish artist Marie Louise Wrightson and available at The Acorn Gallery Pocklington York.

 

Mark Davies, the self-styled storyteller, has a love of the classics... from classic movies to classic children's stories, but always with a twist...

...using the forces of light and dark, good and evil, he creates epic scenes built from big ideas and not so obvious details, all of which combine to bring the story to life!
