Exhibition: Mita Higton Art

Thu 2 - Wed 8 July

Free Event

The Quay Gallery

Mita Higton is a Suffolk based painter in watercolour and mixed media.

East Anglia’s vast sky and the abundance of light dominating its sea and landscapes have been a powerful source of inspiration for Mita. Her paintings use vivid colours and impressionistic brush strokes to depict local scenes, focusing largely on the coast and rural areas. She has now moved into a more experimental phase with the lavish use of acrylic inks to enhance the vibrancy and freedom of watercolour.  She is also an emotive portrait painter, and enjoys painting a wide variety of subjects, from family members to animals. Particularly striking are her collection of rooster paintings, which use an almost fauvist palette.
