Britt Swain

“I originally trained at Chelsea School of Art as a textile designer before taking up various teaching posts around the Uk. Alongside this I worked as a community artist and developed a number of installations for schools in and around York. I am now living and settled in Temple Sowerby near Penrith in Cumbria.

My work focuses mainly on nature, pattern, line and texture. More latterly I have taken commissions from pet owners and produced pet portraits of loved family friends. These have included dogs, cats, tortoises and even monkeys!

I hope you enjoy my work.”
