North Norfolk Studios

Artists are all set to open their Studios

Saturday 29 May to Sunday 6 June

Krys and I are delighted to let you know that we’re all set for a fabulous celebration of the Arts here in North Norfolk at the end of May.

Along with over 100 other artists, covering around 80 locations right across North Norfolk, we are opening our studio to the public. Visitors can follow local Art Trails, or create their own by using the map on the website or in the brochure. We are proud to be supported by local businesses and communities and by North Norfolk District Council.

It’s a free event. There is a wide range of work to enjoy including: painting, textiles, sculpture, ceramics, printing, photography and some surprising techniques. It’s great to start the summer season with such a positive boost.

Visitors will receive a really warm welcome and be able to view our work and have a stimulating chat about how we create it, as well having the opportunity to buy original artwork.

A Taster Exhibition will also be taking place at the Old Workshop Gallery in Corpusty from Saturday 15 May where you can get a preview of what’s on offer.

For more information visit the website: www.northnorfolkstudios.co.uk

A  24 page colour brochure with profiles and pictures of the art and where to find the studios is widely available in North Norfolk’s Tourist Information Centres and many retail and hospitality venues. Look out also for our posters, flyers with our logo and QR code and roadside banners.

A bit about us:

Krys Leach

Born in Sydney and raised in London, I was taught by Kyffin Williams RA before attending Norwich School of Art and pursuing a career in television. Although I’ve been painting since childhood I’ve exhibited professionally since 1996 and shown my work all over England and in the Irish Republic.

Much of my work is inspired by travel and is distinctive for its rich colour and innovative techniques. I work principally in oils on stretched canvas or canvas board but often start with some texturing - usually marble dust or tissue paper. Sometimes this builds into three dimensions with the judicious use of cut-outs, masks and found objects. I tend to work in series, developing a theme, subject or technique until it yields all its potential. The results vary in size between several feet or just a few inches.
Originally concentrating on landscapes and maritime subjects, in recent years I’ve gained a modest reputation for collectable figure work. I’m very indebted to some very elegant models, of course. Their elegance and grace illuminates every picture.

Tracy Myers

When I went to art college my first ambition was to be an illustrator. I did my Foundation Course at Herts College of Art and Design in St Albans, where I fell in love with printmaking. I got a place at Brighton Art College to study printmaking and photography. However, I decided to drop out to go into TV production, where I enjoyed a 30 year career.

I continued to create art work in various media, not only drawing and painting, but also textiles and decorating furniture. Eventually, Krys and I decided to change our lives and we moved to Norfolk to set up a dedicated studio space. I was able to have the space for an etching press and to return to printmaking.

Since leaving TV I have concentrated on ceramics. I am fortunate to have been taught by artist and potter Helen Dixon, of Anglia Clay Supplies, at Alby Crafts & Gardens. I assist her with her weekly classes and we run the very popular raku courses during the summer months.
