‘Treescape’ artist Debbie Baxter fronts new exhibition
Cambridge artist Debbie Baxter, who specialises in painting trees, is currently exhibiting in Linton.
Tree launched last Friday (June 4) at Gallery Above, which is situated in an old maltings building. As well as paintings by Debbie, work by the likes of Ebu Estandar, Debbie Hall, Sarah Jenkins and James Ravilious, son of famed painter Eric Ravilious, will also be on display.
For every painting or item sold over £50, the buyer gets a free baby tree. There will also be botanical prints, books, stationery, cards and wooden artefacts for sale.
Debbie will have eight paintings on display. The abiding theme in her work, which is placed centre stage in this exhibition, is a celebration of trees in all their variety and beauty, majesty and colour.
Debbie describes herself as a “treescape artist” and her talent was highlighted by an appearance on the BBC’s Countryfile in 2018. Her book, Into the Woods, illustrates the wide range of her work and includes poetry written in collaboration with Gary Milsom.
