Iolanthe's Galley Hill Art

Paintings, Fine Art Prints, Photographs and Tolkien Illustrations

Welcome to the Galley Hill Art Galleries

I've painted my whole life but in 2008 I took the plunge and became full-time artist and opened Galley Hill Art. My paintings are inspired by the mysterious prehistory of Britain, a long-standing fascination with world symbols and the works of JRR Tolkien. I work mainly in watercolour and gouache, a medium I find exciting because it always creates interesting surprises.

The Photography Gallery reflects my love of black and white, a medium I worked with for years in picture library management and I have never quite been able to get it out of my system

I hope that you will enjoy browsing the galleries and that you will draw your own inspiration and meaning from my paintings. All the paintings and photographs shown here are available as limited edition fine art prints from my website at

You can follow all the ups and downs that come with trying to be a working artist and keep up with the latest news on my Community Shop Thread and on my Galley Hill Art Blog. I'd love to receive your comments and feedback either there or through my website.
