The Mersea Gallery has a great selection of framed and unframed artwork for sale. Many of the pieces on display are by local artists from Mersea Island and surrounding areas – our selection is constantly being added to and amongst others we currently we have work from:
Elizabeth Morris’ Original Prints are etchings, produced in small editions. She works on copper or steel plates, which are deeply bitten and heavily textured to create a richly worked surface. From the initial ‘on the spot drawings’, to the etching of the copper or steel plate and proofing and final printing, they are entirely her own work.
Vinny’s background as a textile designer means that colour is a fundamental element of her work, her palette of choice de-saturated evocative of by-gone eras but also the sea’s and skies of Mersea Island where she lives.
Since moving to Mersea Island in 2013 Vinny’s work has increasingly been influenced by the historic boats, landscapes and seascapes that surround her. This has inspired a whole new body of work.
Mike is a Colchester based artist who creates charming limited edition prints based on his beloved Dalmatian Ice, who unfortunately is no longer with us. He mostly works using oil pastels and inks to create his beautiful quirky and fun drawings. Mike’s inspiration revolves around his life with Ice and all the happy times they shared.
