ISLAND artist Esme Ballard has a new display of her limited edition prints at one of her local shops in Freshwater.

Made from original watercolours, the six landscapes of West Wight can be seen from the window of Elliotts on School Green Road.

Among scenes available to purchase are the former Tide Mill in Yarmouth; Fort Albert, Colwell Bay; The Causeway in Summer and Autumn; and bluebells at the Mottistone Estate.

The mounted prints are available for £60 each, while framed and glazed prints cost £100.

The prints have been professionally produced by the Available Light Gallery in Newport, with colours that are lightfast for up to 75 years.

Mounts and frames were made by Newport's New Rembrandt Gallery, and the run of each scene will never exceed 25 prints.

Having lived in England's north west and midlands, 2011 saw Esme take early retirement, and she now lives with her husband, David, in Freshwater Bay.

Her move to the Island was the catalyst to devote more time to artwork, and she has exhibited at a range of Isle of Wight locations over the past decade.

The new display will feature at Elliotts from today (Friday.)
