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!

Bring the beach back home

When the holiday's over it's so hard to keep that relaxed vibe when it's 'back to school' and work. Creating a coastal interior at home, with neutral beach colours and a feature painting will really help you to escape into relaxation again. 

"Making Your Own Path" has a show-stopping aerial view tracing the lines in the sands, each with their own story of dog walks, romantic strolls or searching for flotsam & jetsam with the kids. With Free delivery to UK mainland it's easy to bring the beach home. What's stopping you?
