Christine Mannion

A background in textiles, ceramics and metalwork studied at the Lanchester Polytechnic Coventry, together with designing/making Tiffany style lampshades and traditional leaded panels for many years informs Christine’s work.

In 2003 her watercolour ‘Snowdrops’ was one of the selected designs to be manufactured by the ‘Moorcroft’ Pottery raising funds at auction for ’Children in Need’.

In search of a change from physically demanding work, Christine embarked upon experiments using acrylic mediums, aiming for a looser style, admiring the freedom of Jackson Pollock, Gerhard Richter and the colourful work of Gustav Klimt.

Inspired by masses of flowers, wild and derelict areas, adding textures and movement to capture a moment in time. Christine favours a low perspective, homing in on a small patch of interest, semi-abstract or abstract. Loose and textured with a certain amount of unpredictability.

I was lucky enough to find myself at Fosse House Gallery a few weeks ago. The knowledgeable and friendly owner Shenac, has a wonderful eye and her creative space was packed full of delightful art and gifts. I couldn’t resist leaving without several packets of her delightful signature ‘bee’ cards. I will definitely be back.

Just to say a very big thank you for the excellent framing of our picture, and for all the helpful suggestions and ideas, and good advice – we really love the result! It looks like a totally new picture, it seems to have brought it to life. We will be back.

You have done a great job of framing our Dior vintage poster – after many years we are now about to enjoy it! Excellent Jonny!! Lovely gallery, we wish you every success.

Just had 2 pictures framed of my artwork and am SO pleased with how professional they now look! Jonny was so helpful and took time helping me choose the right frame & knew exactly what I wanted. I’m a novice at this, but Jonny made me feel not only great for such a good job he made on framing my work, but gave my confidence a bit of a boost! Definitely bringing my artwork here again. Thanks Jonny! See you soon! Give Sox a cuddle from me.

Thanks for doing such a great job with the Hockney print. It’s now hanging in the hall for all to see and looks fabulous.
