Manchester’s Northern Quarter 

Chloé was drawn to the stylish bohemian part of Manchester’s city Centre while living nearby. The antique appearance of Café Centro drawing mystery around itself. Apotheca is a recent addition to the Northern Quarter and has a fabulous art deco design element. The ambiance at the bar is something Chloé wanted to capture in her painting. Northern flower shop, being only a little further down the road to Café Centro provides a more feminine aspect. With it’s little flower pots and crates outside it has a slightly rustic feel whilst being in the heart of the city.

Railway Renaissance 

Manchester’s Victoria Station is currently a station in need of restoration, but before that happened Chloé wanted to capture some of the aspects of the station which might in the future be lost. The paintings have a nostalgic air to them with the golden tones and smoky presence.

Manchester Victoria Baths 

Victoria Baths is Manchester’s beautiful Water Palace which was enjoyed by the people of Manchester from 1906. Chloé was drawn to paint this beautiful building as it is rich in design and memories, something which Chloé wanted to capture. Victoria Baths was the winner of the BBC 2’s ‘Restoration’ programme in 1993. Although the winner of this prize, to restore the building, there is more money which needs to be raised to support the campaign.

10% of all proceeds for sales of Chloé’s Victoria Baths paintings go towards that campaign. http://www.victoriabaths.org.uk

Heading: About the artist Chloe Small

When I find myself absorbed in a scene, considering how I might paint it, I know I've found my next subject. I usually work in intensive bursts, allowing myself reflective time in between to consider any development. It's in these moments of reflection that I might have a flash of inspiration on how best to represent what it is that I am trying to paint; sometimes this can mean a bold move that can make all the difference in the painting

I work from my studio at home in West Yorkshire but tend to spend most of my spare time in Manchester. My work tends to be themed around the night life of Manchester and my main influence is American artist Edward Hopper.

Whilst I studied to foundation level, I am largely self taught, and have developed my own style outside of academia.
