Contemporary British Artist based on Surrey / Hampshire border

Headshot of Alison Orchard smiling

I am inspired by land, sea and light, exploring and painting along the Cornish coast, or in the beautiful woodlands around my studio, where I create my gestural abstract paintings. You are welcome to visit my gallery and studio on the Surrey / Hampshire border. Please check the opening times or  get in touch.

Buying art is such an exciting process - I want to help make it as easy as possible and a totally enjoyable experience. You might like to browse my online shop or  have a look at "How to find the perfect painting". If you have specific requirements for your interior, talk to me about a commission, or read "How to commission a painting"

Visit Surrey Artist Open Studios

Don't Miss out! This popular event ends on Sunday 23rd June so you still have time to come and visit me. I will be open 10am - 5pm, Wednesday - Sunday (except on Father's day). This is a chance to find a new painting, get inspired, see my sketchbooks, treat yourself to a hand-crafted mug or a limited edition print - there is lots to enjoy. I'll be here painting in my studio and having some great conversations. I hope you can make it.

On days like these you need something fabulous on the wall that takes you to a sunnier place. This striking abstract is inspired by the Cornish coastline and sea. Painted with washes of acrylic and pastel on canvas.

"Seawash II" measures 64 x 101cm in a bespoke conservation frame with gold inner slip. With touches of peach, teal, and pale yellow it would be a stylish addition to your home.
