Welcome

Hi! Thanks for visiting my website. I am an artist, self-taught and dabbling mainly in acrylics, and a published author. Most of my paintings are inspired by nature, animals, birds and the desire to create a magical, peaceful world, a place you can step into and lose yourself, a place that is full of colour and life.

I paint on small to large canvases, or on paper, in my art studio in my old 1920s house. When it’s too cold I paint from my snuggly settee with my hound to keep me company. You can see more of my artwork on the MY ART tab.

My paintings, prints and greetings cards are available in some shops and galleries – if you are interested in any of these you can contact me via the CONTACT tab. To find out more about me, head for the ABOUT ME page. I am happy to paint a commission (I have done a few pet paintings for people) or provide artwork for webpages and book covers. If you’d like to commission a piece of work, please contact me via the CONTACT tab.

I am a member of ABNA – The Association of British Naïve Artists – some of my artwork is available on the ABNA on-line gallery here.

I have also written a handful of children’s books and a few poems, some of which you will find on my BLOG page, along with lots of other writerly and arty posts. You can find out more about my children’s books on my BOOKS page, and there are links to order the books too.

If you like my artwork and/or books, please hop along to my Facebook page: Abi Burlingham Artist where I post regular updates of paintings and projects I am working on, and give it a big LIKE! Thank you muchly. I can also be found on Twitter at: @AbiBurlingham.
