Lita is based near Manchester and studied at Bolton Art College. Her work is inspired by her love of the northern English countryside, and the landscapes and architecture of other places that she has visited.
Her work is inspired by many things, and she particularly likes the perspective, angles, shadows and architecture of places that she has visited; mills and chimneys of the industrial north, fishing villages in Devon and Cornwall, and modern city waterfront scenes, which she turns into abstract pieces.
Lita herself says that “a visual scene, or the atmosphere of a town or city, must ‘move’ me in some way; it is a right hemisphere thing and I find it hard to put into words”.
Lita has exhibited and sold her work for a number of years, here are a few of the places where her work has been shown:
Manchester Art Fair, Bath Art Fair, Skipton Art in the Pen, Meander and Mooch Newark, Olchon Gallery Ramsbottom, MASA Gallery Bury, Wensley Gallery Ramsbottom, Octagon Theatre Bolton, Sutcliffe Contemporary Gallery Harrogate, Image Design Northern Editions Harrogate, Forza Dance Studios Bolton, Posh Living Bolton, Art and Craft Guild of Lancashire, Neoartists Bolton.
