Award-winning artist, Gillian Burton, was born in England. Constable County, the Lake District, the marshes of East Anglia and the Southwest of Arthurian Legend were all part of her earliest memories and infused her imagination.
Gillian's exposure to arts and crafts happened at an early age. Her mother designed and made tapestries for a local church that were still in situ as of 2005. Her father was a photographer who exhibited with the Royal Photographic Society.

Three years ago, inspired by a local art group, Gillian began painting again....
