Horsham Museum and Art Gallery is delighted is present their autumn craft and art exhibition, A Song in the Hills by Jemima Jameson. Jemima was born on a farm in Devon but lived for most of her life in Sussex. She studied Illustration and Design at Northbrook College in Horsham.
Jemima lives with her husband in a beautiful valley set in the Shropshire hills, between the site of an ancient hill-fort and a steep, densely wooded oak forest. She derives much of her inspiration from the surrounding countryside and it’s wealth of fauna & flora. Working mainly in acrylics which, she feels, suit her illustrative style. Her paintings have a peaceful feeling. Jemima’s highly detailed, luminous designs on furniture and gesso-panels are a joyous celebration of the natural world.
The exhibition includes artwork inspired by the landscape of rolling, wooded hills and river-valleys of Jemima’s Shropshire-home, and the animals & birds which share their space with her. A Song in the Hills will feature paintings alongside hand crafted objects.
