Chris Ross Williamson
Chris lives in Bedfordshire, where he works from his home studio, but visits Norfolk whenever he gets the chance for the big skies, ale and friendly locals, He grew up with an interest in cartooning and sites artists such as Paul Sample and Ralph Steadman as having an early influence. Fine art wise, Van Gogh and Gauguin and more recently, (say) Gary Bunt and Sam Toft. "I have been interested in drawing for most of my life, and always keep sketchbooks. Some of the sketches become paintings and most of my work is oil on panel".
Featuring a gaunt owner and his faithful Jack Russell (Barton Darcy), the paintings come with humorous 'ditties'. Small 4 line poems about the world as the dog sees it. "These began around fifteen years ago. I would think of a title, and annotate the sketches. It just evolved really. I like to give people a grin if possible".
He regularly exhibits in Norfolk and Suffolk but also Herts, Beds, Bucks, Cambs and London, Increasingly collectable, his work has been published as greetings cards, noteless, calendars and wall art.
"We’ve walked the length and breadth of Norfolk, but no matter where we roam, from Thornham on the coast to Gorleston, there's no place like Holme"
