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 check out "How to commission a painting"


Come and enjoy some art!
