Elaine Kazimierczuk comments "This is one of a series of works I made during the spring lockdown of 2020. I couldn’t travel to visit meadows and make photos and preliminary sketches – I was pretty frustrated! A friend had the great idea of bring the meadows to me by launching a social media campaign with the hashtag #paintmymeadow asking people to send photos of meadows near where they lived. It was a great success – this one is in Northern Ireland – somewhere I’d almost certainly not have visited. The owner of the meadow, a keen conservationist, has been restoring parcels of land it over recent years – this area had been used for growing grass for silage and is now full of orchids, ox-eye daisies, buttercups and many other species. It's hillside - a riot of colour - pale pink orchids and yellow buttercups are the main colours to be found contrasting with the lush green mixed grasses."

Elaine Kazimierczuk artist paints original art and is available to buy online and in our art gallery. Elaine Kazimierczuk studied chemistry at university and taught for many years before becoming a professional artist. She has written and illustrated a series of books on local history besides a monograph on the religious works of the prominent sculptor Peter Eugene Ball, with whom she collaborated on many major commissions. She is a trustee of Midlands-based Ice-age Archaeological Insights and produces visual interpretations of prehistoric people and their environment. In addition to the demand for her landscapes, there is a growing clientele for her portraiture. She has been shortlisted for the 2016 BP National Portrait Award. Many of Elaine Kazimierczuk’s works are based on interpretations of intimately-known localities, frequently, but not exclusively, in her native Nottinghamshire. In her semi-abstract studies of meadows, trees and hedgerows, she achieves a tension between looseness and control, which enables her to convey that intricate assembly of wild beauty. Frequently working on a red ground, which resonates with the vibrant overpainting, she adopts a bold approach, so that there is an evident freedom, just short of capriciousness, either of hand or eye, in the brushwork. Her works represent the ordered chaos of the natural world with energy and vitality. Elaine Kazimierczuk has recently been awarded the Mary Moser Prize for 2018. This is an Oxfordshire Art Weeks prize awarded to a person who has changed career and taken up art professionally later in life.
