My name is Christopher Smith and I am an artist living in Clacton on sea on the north east coast of Essex, United Kingdom. I have created and produced all the original paintings that you will see in my shop. The inspiration for my artworks stems from a variety of sources such as the Essex coastline,local scenes or the well known landscapes of nearby Constable country. When the subject matter is well known such as Willy Lott's cottage by Flatford mill, I create my own unique version using sketches or my own photographs. I sometimes call upon my own life memories of real scenes to produce a painting . On another occasion I may create a painting purely from my imagination. This all means that my work is often diverse but always completely original.
