Mary Casserley Mary Casserley

Mary’s work revisits a classic era of Railway poster design, recreated in the vibrant tones of 1930’s travel art. The artists who were famous for creating the pre-war advertising travel posters for the Railways have influenced Mary, who particularly admires the work of Norman Wilkinson. Although hand-painted in (water-based) gouache paint, Mary is equally at home with large-scale oil paintings or traditional watercolours.

Mary's views of Berkhamsted and the Chilterns have proved popular, and she plans to capture more local scenes as the interest and commissions for her work continues to grow.
