"Twas on a Starry Night"

Van Gogh X The Art Post

8 Limited Edition Greetings Cards


The portrait known simply as ‘Waiting’ was painted in January and best represents the direction of Chris work at the start of the New Year 2021. She wanted to capture something of the mood of the moment when we were still at the height of lockdown in Britain. Her style is always economical so that only those things deemed essential are brought to the fore in her work. In this painting it’s the golden light across the woman’s face and hand highlighting her expressive face. When painting or printmaking a portrait Chris hopes to capture something of the energy and emotion of the sitter.In 2019, Chris was a successful quarter finalist on the popular Sky television series, ‘Portrait Artist of the Year. Judge and Artist, Tai- Schan Schierenberg commented that Chris’ paintings were characterised by ‘Isolated figures dreaming in Painted Places.’

The Art Post premise is simple

The Art Post is a wax-sealed miniature art gallery right to your doorstep. We're curating and showcasing masterpieces by up and coming artists on postcards. You can either subscribe to our new Emerging Artists edition, or our Sheffield artists edition (where we've been testing the concept!)

You can collect the postcards, frame them (they're printed on high quality card) and of course, send them to friends and family to say a simple thank you or tick all your birthday cards off for the year with a card that can be treasured for life.

"I didn't know I needed it, but I'm so glad I found it." - That's a quote from lovely Sal, one of the Art Post's first very first testers.
