The Art of Christopher Bell

about me

From an early age my work has followed certain threads, until now they have all woven themselves into a tapestry of Celtic and Medieval legends, Pagan folklore, Gothic romanticism and historical imagery. I have always drawn from subjects that have moved and inspired, exited and delighted me. I have always been drawn to Knights, Castles, Swords and Wizards. Anything from the Arthurian tales to the worlds of Tolkien, Robert Holdstock and Mervyn Peake, in fact anything atmospheric, fantastical, mythical and magical.

I have worked previously in Stoke -on- Trent's ceramic industry.Starting at Royal Doulton in Burslem ,hand painting figurines,to decorating pots for Moorcroft Pottery.I now work at a local Museum,www.fordgreenhall.org.uk ,a 17th century House.  

 

I am available for commissions
