Outlining North Nofolk at Creake Abbey

Outlining North Norfolk – a solo exhibition by Lesley Munro in the Cafe, an exhibition of acrylic paintings on canvas by marine artist, Lesley Munro. Munro’s Paintings are often inspired by specific places and the unique Norfolk light, which she uses as departure points for a flight of colour and sweeping compositions. The paintings draw the viewer into the artist’s vision, emitting energy and warmth.
