Contemporary British Artist based on Surrey / Hampshire border

Headshot of Alison Orchard smiling

I am greatly inspired by nature. My larger paintings often emerge from a sketch or 'plein air' painting created on the Cornish coast, or in the beautiful Surrey & Hampshire countryside that surrounds my studio. Visitors are welcome in my gallery and studio at Applegarth Farm, Grayshott. Please check the opening times before visiting 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 if you find it tricky to choose, 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"


Come and enjoy some art!

'Season's Change'

This painting is inspired by the 'Devil's Punchbowl', a National Trust landscape near my studio in Hindhead, Surrey. It's one of my favourite places to paint the vast skies and you can really lose yourself in this one.

"Season's Change" is a 50 x 120cm canvas framed in a slim, soft white, Conservation frame. (This shape would look perfect over a sofa, mantlepiece or bed). Free delivery to UK mainland and 'Try before you buy' for local customers.
