Gretchen Ind

Born in Big Sur, California, Gretchen spent much of her childhood in rural Radnorshire nd then spent many years in London where she studied at the Sir John Cass School of Art.

Following the birth of her second child, Gretchen decided to return to her rural roots, and moved to South Shropshire, where she now lives with her partner and two daughters.

"In our increasingly urbanised world, I find myself very fortunate to be able to paint from the beautiful landscape that still surrounds us here. I also draw inspiration from the many interesting characters I have met throughout my life, whose essence I try to capture in my figurative paintings."
