Artist and Printmaker
Rena Gardiner (1929-99) is best remembered for her guidebooks to historic places, buildings and the countryside which she wrote, illustrated and printed in her cottage in Dorset. Several of them are about Salisbury Cathedral, but her artistic legacy also includes paintings, pastels and prints. Vibrant in colour and full of texture and energetic line, her work conveys her passion for history, architecture and the countryside.
