Getting lost in the story behind Lis Watkins’ work is easy. As one of the UK’s leading watercolour illustrators, she focuses on daily aspects of life; hanging washing, cakes, queues of people etc, making the mundane come alive. Demonstrating a modern take on watercolour, Watkins creates these fantastic scenes and images that are often made on location, giving the most authentic feel to her outcomes.
This London-based artist produces her reportage work local to the gallery, with many of her scenes focusing on the bustling streets of Croydon. Popular with the local clientele, she is available to do commissions upon request.
