The Inspirational Artwork of Kim Atkinson

18/11/17
Sandstone Ridge Cheshire West

The Sandstone Ridge Trust is privileged to own a series of paintings by the accomplished artist, Kim Atkinson.

In 2010, Kim was commissioned by the 'Habitats and Hillforts Landscape Partnership Scheme' to illustrate the Sandstone Ridge. Her paintings were widely used in publications produced by the Heritage Lottery funded project, and continue to be used by the Sandstone Ridge Trust today.

Following a BA in Fine Art at Cheltenham School of Art, Kim studied for an MA in Natural History Illustration at the Royal College of Art, London. Her subjects, mainly birds, insects and plants within the landscape context, are assimilated by way of observational drawings and notes made outside, in and near her garden, or on cliffs and coves of the headland.

Kim's unique interpretation of The Sandstone Ridge was on view as part of The Ridge Festival and was very well received by collectors and visiting individuals alike.
