CHRISTINA HARGRAVES

Born a farmer’s daughter in the fells of the North Pennines, Christina now lives in Lanercost just across the road from the Priory.

She draws inspiration for her art from her country background, her deep love of the countryside and working in her beautiful cottage garden and paddock, full of wild flowers, honey bees and a few chickens.

Mostly worked in a 'wet on wet' technique, the watercolour paintings are in impressionistic floral style using mainly pastoral colours, creating an atmospheric pictorial image.
