Welcome to the Buffy Robinson website. Here you can see the largest ever collection of my Batik work. My canalside Gallery in Shropshire is open by appointment, so please email me if you would like to arrange a visit and I would be happy to show you around.

Riverside in Spring

This is the River Ribble at Sawley in the beautiful Ribble Valley in Lancashire where I lived for over 20 years.  It was where I got the inspiration for my early Batik paintings of sheep and drystone walls, for which I was so well known.  It rains a lot in Lancashire (one of the main reasons for my move to sunny Shropshire!) but that of course gives you these many greens in the landscape.  Lancashire's not all satanic mills you know!

I recently made this 'Riverside in Spring' lampshade (10"high x 10" dia) which shows the bridge and the Spread Eagle pub at Sawley.  It is now SOLD, but I could make you one like it.  Prices for this design start at  £195.

Batik is best lit from behind because of the translucent qualities of the wax-impregnated cloth.  Lampshades are a perfect and simple way of displaying my work.  The colours have a wonderful depth to them and you have a work of art that's useful too!  If you are interested in buying this, or any other of my hand-made Batik lampshades, email me.
