South Norfolk artist Debbie Storey will be showing her work to the public for the first time at an exhibition Pennoyer Centre in Pulham St Mary.
The exhibition, titled Wildlife, Woodlands and Pets and running until April 18, includes contemporary acrylic painting and pencil sketches, inspired by nature and animals.
For Debbie, who only started painting last March, the exhibition marks a fantastic 12 months.
She said: “I hadn’t picked up a paintbrush in years, but after posting a sketch of my daughter on Facebook, I was completely overwhelmed by the fantastic response. It really encouraged me to do what I should have done a long time ago and I started painting the local wildlife and some of my favourite local woodlands, including Thetford Forest and Thornham Walks.”
The work on display includes a range of original art and prints, from large contemporary paintings, to smaller studies of animals.
Over the past year, Debbie has also completed nearly 50 commissions, including portraits of children and animals, as well as landscapes.
