Christina Hargraves

Born a farmer’s daughter in the West Allen Valley. Christina now lives at Lanercost just over the road from the Priory.

She draws inspiration for her art from her country background, having worked on the land as a shepherdess which developed her deep love of nature, animals and the countryside. She now loves working in her beautiful cottage garden and paddock, full of wild flowers, honey bees and a few chickens.

Mostly worked in a wet on wet technique, the watercolour paintings are in impressionistic floral style using mainly pastoral colours, creating an atmospheric pictorial image.
