About Chrissie ...

Chrissie Best studied art at Christchurch College, Canterbury and graduated with a BA (Hons) degree in Art History and Painting. She taught art in school for 10 years before setting up a studio at home in the mid 1990's.

Chrissie has always had a passion for flowers and produces 'larger than life' flower paintings, in which she tries to show the luminosity and colour of the subject.

Chrissie paints in water colour, acrylics and oils and was inspired to paint flowers after a visit to Belvoir Castle in Leicestershire where she saw the most beautiful peonies. She photographed them and came home to paint and hasn’t stopped since. Her flowers tend to be very large and colourful which makes for a dramatic impact

Each of her flower paintings takes around 80 hours to complete. These originals are not currently for sale but superior quality and perfectly colour-matched giclée prints are available.

Chrissie sells to various galleries and private clients throughout the UK. To view a recent article in the Rutland & Leicestershire Life - PDF Chrissie Best article
