The Owls House Studio

Art work by Mary Allen of The Owls House Studio

Artist Mary Allen's bold and spontaneous work embodies a very personal take on all things related to the sea and her beloved cornish coastline. She demonstrates this by using fairly thick layers of paint finishing with layers of glazes to produce the texture and tone her work has become recognized for. The palette knife is her preferred tool, however hands and the odd kitchen utensil here and there also play their part. She works from her studio at The Owls House, which, when she is not traveling, is open to the public, and so it is always wise to ring before a visit.
