This is the second painting I have made especially for the exhibition 'Along Your Street' which takes place at the lovely Byard Art Gallery on King's Parade from 31 May to 1 July 2018.
This is a classic view of Cambridge. Hidden between the trees is King's College Chapel and the Gibb's Building seen from the Backs. A beautiful sight at any time of the year, here King's is seen through the trees before the last leaves fall in the Autumn with the final light of the day as the sun sets.
This painting is difficult to photograph as the gold leaf sparkles and is highlighted differently depending upon the light and how it is viewed. Do visit Byard Art between 31 May and 1 July to see how this painting reacts to light..
I paint detailed, dream-like images in oils on canvas which incorporate rich night skies and a shining moon. Images 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.
Cambridge Open Studios is on during July. I am open my doors from 11am to 6pm on July 7/8, 14/15 and 21/22. I love open studios, not only does it give me a good opportunity to sort out my work but I love meeting the people who visit.
This year I have new paintings as well as some new limited editions of my paintings including the 'Tree of Discovery' and 'The Backs'. I also have a selection of cards, notebooks and the Cambridge Art Book. Find me in the Open Studio guide at 309 Milton Road.
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. My work can also be seen at exhibitions. Look out for the 'Summer Exhibition' exhibition at Byard Art that finishes on 2 September 2018.
