Walthamstow based artist Kirsten Schmidt shows paintings, linocuts and etchings inspired by the green spaces around E17 especially the Wetlands and Lloyd Park.

About

Fine art printmaker and painter Kirsten Schmidt loves nothing more than explore her surroundings with a sketchbook. Over the last year she has drawn and painted in situ in Lloyd Park's William Morris Garden, the newly opened Walthamstow Wetlands and Walthamstow Marshes.

She uses her sketches to produce highly decorative linocuts and etchings, often hand colouring and embellishing with metal leaf. Herons, Cormorants, Kingfishers, Swans and other birds surrounded by nature feature in her work. In the summer she is especially inspired by the vibrant colours of the William Morris Garden behind the William Morris Gallery; living nearby she often sits amongst the plants and tries to capture the glorious chaos of nature. The results are bold pastel and oil paintings.
