Deirdre Bridges Local Artist

Thanks for taking the time to visit my online gallery, I am located in Coldridge, mid-Devon.

We’ve recently moved from the New Forest to Devon so when it comes to subject matter the world is my oyster! We used to overlook Southampton Water and in particular the Cruise terminals so in ‘normal times’ we could gaze with envy at those about to set off for adventures in far off lands. Just a few kilometres south we had the beaches at Calshot & Lepe overlooking the Isle of Wight, whilst just a few kilometres to West is the New Forest. I now have beautiful hills and valleys in Devon for to add to my portfolio, watch this space in 2022!

I paint in watercolour, pastels and acrylics, animals are my favourite. I love to see the painting come alive on the canvas.

Most of my work is available for purchase at very modest prices. As an example a 12cm x 15cm original wildlife paintings are £30, sizes are in the descriptions. I have done commissioned animal portraits with prices starting from around £40 depending on detail.

All paintings are unique and signed by me, and I’ll always be happy to provide a personal certificate of authenticity at no extra charge. I’m not up to speed with framing at the moment but can point you towards several local framing shops.

For Commissions to paint portraits of pets please email me with good photographs to discuss further.
