An exhibition of new paintings and drawings by Lizzie Riches. is taking place at
The Garden House Gallery, Cromer (10 November - 31 December 10 - 5 daily and 11 - 4 Sundays).
Artist Lizzie Riches conquered the high-end art scene early on in her career; for 30 years her exquisite paintings have been bought by top London art collectors and have been shown in major art galleries, in Britain and abroad.
But now Lizzie has decided to concentrate on her home town where this month she stages her first ever one-woman Norfolk exhibition.

Though she has lived in Cromer for many years, major commissions have taken her to the capital and all over Europe; her work hangs on cruise liners, international banks and illustrates prestigious publications.
'Magical realism' portraits are her signature work, but for the new show Lizzie has captured the wildlife and landscapes she sees each day on her walks around Cromer. So keen is she to spend more in the county, she is now 'artist in residence' at The Garden House Gallery, near Cromer sea front and where the exhibition takes place.

Lizzie said: “I have lived in Cromer for many years but my work has often taken me to London where most of my patrons are. But I have a strong fold of Norfolk followers, and it's wonderful to be working as well as living here, and to be painting the gloriousness of north Norfolk.”
