Gill Tomlinson spent seven years living and working in Greece and maintains a passion for all things Greek! She has, like many Grecofiles, a love of the place that borders on the obsessive! Since training in art and design as a mature student, Gill has been producing her own brand of Greek images, which reflect her particular relationship with the place. Her spare time in Greece is now spent keeping sketchbooks which form the basis of future design work. Pantings are mostly in watercolour, pen and ink and sometimes acrylic. Favourite subjects include tavernas, fishing boats, food, architectue and village scenes.
Several of the current range were painted on Kefalonia - in Assos, Fiskardo, Argostoli and Avithos. She is particularly inspired by the quality of the light in Greece and the fantastically clear turquoise water.

An Artist's Window is a range of hand-made greetings cards with evocative illustrations from an artist's sketchbooks of Greece. See Gill Tomlinson's website for her current range to buy on line.
