Vivienne feels very fortunate to have grown up in the lovely Lake District.
She developed a deep love of mountain landscape alongside her love of painting, which has continued all her life.
This exhibition of paintings is to celebrate visits to the mountains of Switzerland, France, Scotland, Norway and one trek in Nepal,( up to Everest Base Camp.) All these mountain venues have provided a wonderful inspiration enabling Vivienne to follow up with paintings and subsequent exhibitions.
In 2005 and 2006 Vivienne had solo exhibitions of Alpine paintings at Rheged near Penrith, which was followed, in 2007, by a third Alpine exhibition here in Brantwood. In 2011 she returned to Brantwood to present her first “Eyes to the Hills” exhibition of Lakeland paintings.
Vivienne is a member of The Lake Artists Society, (established in 1904 by artist W.G.Collingwood who had been secretary to Ruskin.) www.lakeartists.org.uk
