Gabriella Buckingham, who lives at North Walsham, will be taking a selection of her abstract and semi-abstract paintings to Art Fair East, which, since being founded five years ago by Norwich-based artists Will Teather and Brian Korteling, has become one of the leading events of its kind in the country.

Gabriella, who has worked as a professional illustrator since graduating from art college in the early 1990s, will be showing work inspired by "a sense of place movement, colour and light".

She said: "Art Fair East will be a chance to reach new audiences with my work and to be showing in a fair that has already exhibited international names is quite a thrill."

Art Fair East runs from November 29-December 1. For more information, visit www.artfaireast.com
