The Chris Kirby Studio is located in the village of Hindringham in North Norfolk. Here Chris combines his interests in folk art, country and garden antiques, with his own art and photography.

Chris was born in London and was admitted to Kingston College of Art and Design. Following a career in business, he later became a documentary photographer* whose work has been exhibited internationally. He also continued with his art and illustrations; his paintings have been exhibited and sold in the UK.

"I've long maintained an interest in art and design, with a particular interest in folk art, country antiques, contemporary art and photography; and it's now my daily pleasure to present an eclectic selection of carefully chosen items for sale to collectors, designers, decorators and those wishing to enhance their home spaces."

The Chris Kirby Studio is open by appointment; enquiries are welcome for commissions and assignments.


*As a documentary photographer Chris worked in the UK, Europe and especially Africa. His photography has subsequently been published extensively and exhibited in the UK, Europe and the USA - most recently at the Klompching Gallery in New York, Spazio Tetenal in Rome, St. Martins-in-the-Fields, Somerset House, Mall Gallery and the Truman Gallery in London.
