English artist Frances Broomfield is attracted to the eccentric in her art, creating paintings focused on animals, ancient landscapes, fables, myths, and children’s stories. Her early work dealt with memories and dreams, and her paintings are often tinged with mystery and humor. Broomfield’s formal portraits of gardeners in their well-tended surroundings, the tools of their trade worn as regalia, portray her distinguished sense of whimsy.
Broomfield (b. 1951) is based in Cheshire, England. She studied fine art painting at university and now works primarily in oils and tempera, producing highly detailed paintings. Broomfield is the recipient of a variety of awards, and her work is in collections in the Warrington Museum and Art Gallery and the Glasgow Museums.
