Profile of Artist Jilly Oxlade-Arnott
Oxlade-Arnott is known internationally for her detailed, bright, fine line ink and watercolour depictions of historically or nationally significant architecture, created in her unique style.
A Worcester based architectural artist who recently produced solo exhibitions at Eastnor Castle, The Royal Porcelain Works and The Canwood Gallery, also delivers large scale outdoor social projects and private collector commissions.
Her accomplished use of colour, depth and variety achieved in her work is matched only by the level of fine detail and architectural accuracy captured. This has assured Oxlade-Arnott’s status as a much sought after and collectable artist both nationally and across the globe.
Jilly’s watercolour collections of Croome Court, Worcester, Ludlow, Eastnor Castle, Cheltenham, Birmingham and London, alongside her Pop Art inspired works are all receiving wonderful reviews and great interest from national and international collectors.
Oxlade-Arnott’s appreciates the importance of architectural variety, heritage and conservation, commenting “It is important to me, especially now, that as a nation and as a global society, we continue to assure our architectural heritage, its wondrous diversity and utilise technological innovation for the progression of restoration, preservation and creative new design”.
The new National Trust Collection has been especially created for this exhibition.
‘It is with the utmost pleasure that I have been asked to create a wonderful new collection for the National Trust, in celebration of their 125 years. The initial twelve works of the collection include some iconic properties, all of which have fascinating back stories. A further twelve will be created during the year, together with a number of new works from my previously unreleased Birmingham and Cheltenham collections and the ever popular pop art canvasses. I want to help show the diversity of the work and projects that the National Trust deliver daily in the protection of some of our most historic structures since 1896.‘ said Jilly Oxlade-Arnott.
