Inspired by The Sandstone Ridge

Sandstone Ridge Cheshire

The Sandstone Ridge Trust is privileged to own a series of watercolours by the inspirational and highly accomplished artist, Kim Atkinson.

In 2010, Kim was commissioned by the 'Habitats and Hillforts Landscape Partnership Scheme' to illustrate the Sandstone Ridge.

Her paintings continue to be used by the Sandstone Ridge Trust today, highlighting the uniqueness of this wonderful landscape.

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.

Kim has also been a member of the Society of Wildlife Artists since 1992.

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 where she lives.

The distinctiveness of Kim's unique interpretation of The Sandstone Ridge, has been very well received by collectors and individuals alike.
