Although most of Grafton’s work reflects nature, she is also a self-confessed lover of patterns, buildings, all things geometric, and… chocolate.
Bridgeman proudly represent Ele Grafton as one of our Bridgeman Studio artists for copyright administration and licensing.
Set inside a canvas marquee, the studio boasts a classroom space, exhibition shop and reception. From life drawing to graphic illustration, paper sculpture to collage, screen printing to lomography, Wilderness are working with contemporary partners to deliver art classes with a difference.
The aim is to not only expose the lay creative to new skills but to brush off the slightly middle-age dust associated with art classes, bringing a contemporary flavour. Read more
