Our new ART EXHIBITION from 1st May is: In my view – People, Places & Creatures by local artist NORA O’KEEFFE

Nora grew up locally and now lives in Long Buckby, having studied art and worked in London for some years. The influence of the local countryside – it’s buildings and landscapes is apparent in some of here work. A particular interest in life drawing and the portrait is also …..

evident in some pieces. Nora works in a range of media – enjoying the varied qualities of oil, watercolour and gouache painting, and frequently using combined media to achieve the desired quality. Acrylics are a favourite. Recently her skills have been extended to include techniques of Icon painting and stained glass work. Work in this medium involves using the original colour pigments in their powdered form combined with prepared egg yolk to create a working consistency with which to paint.
