Elaine Thompson


Elaine Thompson has been making pictures in wood for more than 25 years and, having reached retirement age, has decided to reduce her output of wooden pictures. Elaine, who is based at The Wood Gallery near the D H Lawrence Birthplace in Eastwood, produces pictures on naturally shaped pieces of wood.
She chooses wood with lovely grains and colours and these are the inspiration for the pictures that she burns into the wood. Generally, only hardwoods are suitable for the work and all of it is sourced in England. Leabrooks Gallery is now one of only a handful of places that stock her work which will become increasing difficult to find.
