Short Stories by Carol Saunderson

26th May - 2nd June 2024

 See The Full Collection

One of the reasons we fell so deeply for Carol's work is her deep, soulful connection to the landscape. We also love her ability to capture subtle, every day stories that unfold, whether it's a dove feeding from a bowl, a distant figure walking a dog or a muntjac bouncing through a meadow; with Carol's instinctive use of colour to describe the mood, these paintings really are jewels. 

The gallery in collaboration with our sister Company, Red Hare Publishing have produced an attractive full colour catalogue to accompany the exhibition, you can buy it online or from the gallery. Click Here To Buy The Catalogue

An Explosion of Colour by Suzanne Lawrence

Watching Suzanne's confidence and style grow over the years has been a joy to behold. Suzanne has found her voice and boy is it loud! With hints of Scottish Colourists and a touch of Fauvism, Suzanne has stamped her personality on a small part of her beloved North Norfolk. We will be posting the full exhibition to our mailing list before the opening, if you'd like to join our mailing list please email us.

Water, Rachel Lockwood

9 – 24th March, Pinkfoot Gallery and by appointment 

During 2024 Rachel will be selling some of her own paintings, her private collection. Although she admits it's like choosing which dear ones to part with, her walls and studio are becoming too crammed.  We will be splitting the collections into subjects and releasing them throughout the year. We start with Water; in 2006, Rachel started a small project studying the life in and around her own garden pond. This grew into a collection of highly finished oil paintings. In 2008 she had her first Water exhibition and continued painting water in this style for the following year until her work took into a different direction, as we know this artist loves to explore. We will be showing some of the collection in the gallery but for the larger paintings we will need to book viewing appointments via the gallery - info@pinkfootgallery.co.uk
(please note, due to the finish on these paintings, it is impossible to reproduce the colours accurately)

John Foker SWLA

5th February 2024

We have a new collection of paintings by artist, John Foker. This Durham based artist (winner of the Artists for Nature Foundation (ANF) Award 2015) is known for his unique approach to painting the environment.  Although birds frequently feature in his paintings John explains the colours, textures and space that surround them are as important as the birds themselves.

Father and daughter duo, Andrew and Amie Haslen will be revealing their latest works together at the Pinkfoot Gallery.

Andrew Haslen is an established Suffolk artist, well-known for his paintings of hares after hand-rearing leverets. Inspired by nature and the creatures that inhabit his mini reserve surrounding his studio, Andrew has a gift capturing the moment and character of his subjects. 

Suffolk artist, Amie Haslen studied Fine Art at Aberystwyth University in Wales where the rugged, dramatic landscape and seascape formed the basis of her work. Now established back in Suffolk, Amie is fascinated by the landscape and the secret world of fauna and flora, especially the minutiae so often overlooked.

The Restless Coast, Suzanne Lawrence

The Restless Coast, Suzanne Lawrence

Suzanne works tirelessly to capture the light, movement and energy of her local patch on the North Norfolk Coast. Her paintings are an emotional response to what she sees, feels and hears around her in this rapidly and ever changing landscape. Whether it's a day where the east wind blows over the sea with clouds are scudding across the skies, or a sultry, hot and still day with barely a breeze, you feel what Suzanne felt as she painted when you view her work.

27th May - 4th June

The Studio Collection by Rachel Lockwood

We are looking forward to our next collection from Rachel Lockwood which concentrates solely on the life surrounding her studio in Cley next the Sea.

The land around Rachel’s studio has her trapped and mesmerised. After years of creating a natural landscape, the creatures and vegetation within it have her under their spell, becoming the subject of her work. A visiting sparrow hawk is framed by her studio doors one day as it rests and preens. The flowering plants explode like slow motion fireworks, feeding butterflies, hawk-moths and bees. The foxes come to search and dig and the birds breed in the hollows. It is a small slice of North Norfolk and a world of its own. The owls, hares, deer etc all come, they give birth and rear their young and travel through - Rachel is entranced by it, watching the seasons and the changes and the shaping of nature.

This is a collection of her recent work the gallery has managed to take from her studio while distracting her with chocolate. 

See The Collection Here


Small is Great by Rachel Lockwood is a collection of small paintings featuring stylised creatures and landscapes from this Cley-based artist. From sleeping animal forms curled up on a forest floor to a dramatic squall hitting the beach in Cley, Rachel’s unique voice reflects the power and glory of her surrounding habitat.

Available to view in the gallery from 25th March.

July, 2022

We are pleased to announce the upcoming exhibition of works by Stephen Page. The main inspiration for the work in 'Entities' comes from an interest in art and artefacts from throughout human history that reflect our changing relationship with animals.

Working from his studio in the Tanat Valley in Mid Wales, Page creates iconic sculptures which are cast in bronze through the lost wax process and finally coloured through the chemical process of patination in a variety of tones, hues and marble effects. Page exhibits nationally and internationally and his work is included in collections in the UK and worldwide.

New Work by Jennifer Tetlow

Here at Pinkfoot we've been championing sculpture from the very start. Having enjoyed the ancient process of lost wax casting in bronze and carvings from wood, we are now very happy to announce a new partnership with this well-known artist,  Jennifer Tetlow. 

Her work is centred around her love for the natural world, where she aims to capture a creature's essence of simple shape and form. We think her work will make the perfect addition to Pinkfoot Gallery.

You can find her work in the gallery from February 2023, or view online here.

New Work by Daniel Cole

We are excited to have a selection of new works by Daniel Cole in the gallery from 20th July. His hugely popular works feature many recognisable North Norfolk landscapes with an exciting twist of abstraction. 

Daniel is attracted to the light on the North Norfolk coast and is a regular guest at Pinkfoot from his native Cornwall. Here the vast open beach space, big skies, never-ending marsh and rising sand dunes all form the basis of his exciting and invigorating landscapes.
