Mary Casserley - Artist
Paintings of the Chilterns
2014 - 2018
Mary Casserley

My work revisits a classic era of Railway poster design, recreated in the vibrant tones of 1930's travel art. I was born and bred in Berkhamsted, Herts, to a railway and brewing family, these perfectly combine my passions.

This recent work is hand-painted in (water-based) gouache paint, a new departure for me, I am equally at home with large scale oil paintings or traditional watercolours. (This can be put down to my art school background).

My style has been influenced by the artists who were famous for creating the pre-war advertising travel posters for the Railways. I particularly admire the work of Norman Wilkinson, who I have recently discovered was an old boy of Berkhamsted School - where I work in the art department.

My views of Berkhamsted and the Chilterns have proved popular. Looking to the future I have more local scenes to capture as the interest and commissions for my work continues to grow.
