North Norfolk District Council is showcasing the work of local artist Amelia Mills in the First Floor Gallery at its Cromer offices from 17th January until 1st March.

After a period of travel in Australia and New Zealand, Amelia has returned home to the North Norfolk coast to pursue her love of painting abstract art. Inspired by the ocean and aerial landscapes, she creates vibrant and dynamic paintings by pouring and manipulating artist resin mixed with acrylics on to handmade wooden panels.

Having been largely self-taught, she has spent many years developing and experimenting with her way of working. Her unique style is gaining continuing interest from collectors and art lovers around the world and in 2017 Amelia was commissioned by British Airways to create a cover for their First Class magazine.

The First Floor Gallery is open to the public 8.30am-5pm on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays; 10am-5pm on Wednesdays; and 8.30am-4.30pm on Fridays.

Amelia said: “I am endlessly fascinated by the organic shapes found in nature, whether microscopic complexities or wider aerial views. The latest influence for my current body of work is the sea with its ever-changing and contrasting nature.”

North Norfolk District Council seeks to offer free opportunities to local artists to display their work in the well-lit gallery, and in turn provides staff and visitors the opportunity to see a variety of artists’ work. Six exhibitions are held annually.
