Artists of Pulverbatch

Two artists reside in Castle Pulverbatch.

David Whiley specialises in contemporary landscape paintings working in watercolour, gouache and ink on heavyweight watercolour paper.

More information about David and examples of his work can be found on his website.

Christine Steele, born in Shropshire in 1961, is a self-taught artist who has had an interest in art throughout her life from graphite pencil drawings of historic buildings, to pastels of wild flowers and birds inspired by family holidays. Later the seaside provided subjects for many pastel paintings of beach scenes, Welsh castles and sandy shores.

Being located in Pulverbatch, on the edge of the South Shropshire Hills, provides the opportunity to paint acrylic and watercolour pictures of the surrounding landscapes.

Her husband, Wyndham, printed some of her earlier work including graphite pencil ‘Birds of Prey’, ‘Sea Roses’ and black and white ‘Hedgehogs’. This encouraged the production of further pieces and enabled the donation of a proportion of the print run to benefit children’s charities and animal charities such as the Gentleshaw Bird of Prey Hospital in Eccleshall Staffordshire.

Works are available for sale and commissions are taken. You can contact Christine here or at 5 Bebbington Cottages.
