"Sailing off Polkerris" original painting by Liz Hackney
"Sailing off Polkerris” is an original acrylic ink and mixed media painting onto canvas by Cornwall based artist Liz Hackney.
Polkerris is a tiny cove in St Austell Bay with a handful of cottages, a pub, a reastaurant and a little beach shop and gallery. Every weekend my daughter sails with the youth sailing club and I sit and sketch while she's out on the water. This painting is of my daughter out on one of the Pico boats that the children learn to sail on.
This painting comes framed in a white wood based decorative frame.
Measurements: image size approx 40 cm x 50 cm.
About the artist
Liz Hackney studied at Somerset College Of Art & Technology gaining a B.A. (Hons) in Textiles and Surface Pattern Design during the mid 1990's. After spending a couple of years in Wiltshire she moved to Cornwall in 1997 setting up a small studio in St. Agnes on the north coast. During this time she developed her unusual technique using tissue paper and inks to create detailed textured collages and paintings.
She later moved to Charlestown on the south coast of Cornwall and on her 30th birthday she opened Atishoo Gallery and Picture Framers with her parents Mike & Jenny. They have now retired and she runs the gallery with her partner and fellow artist Paul Clark. The gallery celebrates 20 years at this location in 2023.
