There are some artists who can bring the very spirit of places into their paintings. They are usually either town or country painters. Saunderson, curiously is both. Born and raised in Suffolk and Essex, he interprets and draws the landscape of East Anglia using great sensitivity.
He has developed a rare and very personal skill in handling pastel colours in his long dreaming views of the country and the quirky drama of the city, with its roofs and busy clouds.
