Fred Ingrams is an artist who after working for many years in London as a painter, graphic designer & art director moved to Norfolk in the late 90s, where he recently became obsessed with painting an area known as The Fens – a marshy, flat region in the east of England. all descriptions of the area sound boring and dreary, but Ingram’s paintings are vibrant and interesting. see his Fens series at his blog and the rest of his work at his website.
