Mani Parkes – Limited Prints – Framed Art
Mani Parkes joins the gallery with the Simple Pleasures collection of limited prints. Following an Art Foundation course at Lincoln College of Art, studied Illustration at UWE Bristol and then transferred to Edinburgh College of Art where she graduated in 1997 with a BA (Hons) in Visual Communication.
The day to day sights that she sees on the school run often inspire her paintings. Besides that, cycling through the higgledy – piggledy streets, she loves the charming buildings and quirky characters that she sees. She loves nature, a beautiful pair of spotty wellingtons or a stripy scarf. Therefore sitting at her living room table Mani Parkes will turn simple sketchbook doodles into cheerful paintings, using acrylic paint combining a muted palette of chalky blues, greys and whites with an uplifting dash of red.
Hence , her wish is to capture a quiet moment that makes people smile.
Limited Prints are available in a choice of frames.
