Chris Riley Art – I was with my seven yr old when I first came across Chris Riley’s artwork. As we walked towards the display he said: “Mum, look at that painting, look at the eyes, it’s like it’s a real bird.” Chris also paints beautiful flower wall art not to be missed as well as commissioned pet portraits.
