Architectural artist moves to Pershore 

Internationally known architectural watercolour and pop art artist Jilly Oxlade-Arnott has recently moved to Pershore. Born in Berkshire, she moved to Worcestershire in 2015 and recently to Pershore, just before the Covid lockdown in March of this year. “Pershore is such a beautiful place to live, the people are very friendly and it’s wonderful that we have so many great independent retailers in town.” comments Jilly.

Oxlade-Arnott is known for her unique style of fine line ink and watercolour paintings of architecturally and historically important buildings as well as her Pop-Art inspired bold images. Her current ‘Acorn to Oak’ exhibition celebrates 125 years of the National Trust and can be seen at National Trust Croome Court throughout 2020. Liberty’s of London also featured Jilly’s work in their recent book and she will be showing a number of pieces at the Birmingham Contemporary Art Gallery from August. One of her first works in Worcestershire was a giraffe called ‘Fabella’ as part of the Worcester Stands Tall project for St Richards Hospice 2020 Appeal.

As well as private commission work Jilly exhibits across the country and has a large international collector base from her varied collections, which include works of Birmingham, Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, International Cities, Ludlow, Malvern, The National Trust and over 50 of Worcestershire. Jilly added, “I am very lucky to do what I do, I meet so many amazing people and seeing my art bring such happiness and joy, I very much look forward to painting in Pershore and getting to know the town.”

Jilly has recently painted two of Pershore’s iconic structures, Pershore Abbey and the War Horse Memorial. Her work is available as originals, canvasses, limited edition prints and cards.
