North Norfolk District Council is hosting an exhibition by Norfolk painter Leslie Nockels, with her work on display at its offices in Cromer.

Cromer-born Leslie trained at the Norwich School of Art and West of England College of Art in Bristol (now both universities), graduating in Sculpture, and returned to Cromer in 1976. After taking time out to bring up her two children, fifteen years ago Leslie decided to take the plunge and become a full-time artist. Ever since that day she has been working from a 1870s railway carriage in her garden.

Her work aims to capture the natural beauty of Cromer and the surrounding area. She regularly paints Cromer Pier and the town's lovely coastline but in this First Floor Gallery exhibition, Felbrigg takes centre stage.

The last three autumns found her painting waves of colour inspired by sunlight bursting through the swathes of autumn leaves such as the "Victory V" plantation of beech trees in the Great Wood at Felbrigg. This large Felbrigg Victory "V" painting was chosen for a heritage exhibition at Norwich Castle last spring.

The exhibition runs until April 19 at NNDC's Holt Road offices. The First Floor Gallery is open to the public 8.30am-5pm on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays; 10am-5pm on Wednesdays; and 8.30am-4.30pm on Fridays.

A Council spokesman said: "The council seeks to offer free opportunities to local artists to display their work in the well-lit gallery, giving staff and visitors the opportunity to see a variety of work. Six exhibitions are held annually".
