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.

Horsedrawn Narrowboat

One of a series of canal scenes, a very early work, this shows a horsedrawn boat passing one powered with an engine.  I used to live near, and had a narrowboat on the Leeds/Liverpool Canal.  The cobbled towpath and old mill with its factory chimney is typical of the canalside architecture.  The beautiful s-shaped bridge is a change-over bridge, designed for when the towpath changes sides.  The horse is able walk over with the rope still attached saving the old boatmen time (and money!).

The original Batik has long since been sold but if you would like to commission a 'canal' original - maybe of your own boat - email me and we can discuss it.
