I use paint, on a regular basis, but I would never say ‘I’m a painter’. I draw with paint, push it around crudely, & hope it helps me to tell the stories in my head. But illustrator & artist Brita Granstrom is what I’d call a ‘proper painter’.

Brita lives in Berwick-upon-Tweed. At a Pechakucha event, she described the local looming skies as being cobalt blue. I loved that. And the paintings are wondrous. Paths to the sea. Plentiful table tops. Windy washing lines.

All of modern life is there, but her scenarios could be from several decades ago too. Some of it could be from a Louis Macniece poem, or an early Ken Loach film.

A Swede’s take on life in an English northern town, steeped in history, lights & darks. Brita’s paintings celebrate the everyday, in an extraordinary way.
