So what do you think of when you imagine your home town?
This painting is my own personal view of Cambridge and some of the people, events, ideas and history that stand out.
It all started when I made a list of what I thought Cambridge meant to me, the list is so long I can make several paintings from it but that is in the future. Many people will recognize Kings College and DNA but why a plate of cakes and an insect?
The original oil on canvas has been sold but I have some beautiful mounted giclee prints available to fit a 20 x 16 inch frame
I paint detailed, dream-like images in oils and acrylics, on canvas which incorporate rich night skies and a shining moon. Stories inspired by the detail and pattern of medieval art, tapestries and my imagination. My work is very influenced by the wonderful city of Cambridge where I live.
Photographs can never do justice to my paintings as they change when the light catches the silver or copper leaf. If you would like to view my actual paintings please contact me to arrange a visit to my studio. My work can also be seen at Byard Art, 14 King's Parade, Cambridge CB2 1SJ, opposite King's College Chapel.
