Winter Open Studio

At The Old Dovecote, 5 Church Street, Cambridge CB4 1DT

OPEN 23 & 24 NOVEMBER 10AM TO 5PM.

I think I must be mad! I shall be doing my third Open Studio this year, one at my house, one with my son in Birmingham and now one with three other artists at a friend's house.

One of the great things about sharing a studio is the company at those slow times when no-one is visiting - yes there are times when an open studio is packed full of visitors but other times when it can be quite slow. When the slow times happen at my own house I sit and paint, when they happen in someone else's house we chat.

It is a good way to keep up friendships and find out what your studio sharers are doing both art-wise and in their lives. It also gives me the chance to have a good look at the other artists' work on display.

This Winter Open Studio I will be at Diana Kazemi's studio in Church Street, Chesterton just along from the wonderful St Andrew's Church with it's beautiful grounds. Diana is a potter, think beautiful blue tableware, vases and even pottery earrings! Joining us will be artist Carmen Renwick and jeweller Indira. I have not shared a studio with Indira before but her jewellery is magnificent. I might have a problem buying too many of her pieces!

The Winter Studio at Diana's is very special. We put up lots of fairy lights and then more and serve mulled wine to all our visitors. Because the studio is during winter it can be rather cold so we have to keep the front door closed (there are lots of flags outside to show the way), so when you enter it is very magical with all the lights and the smell of the seasonal drink.

This year I shall be showing some new paintings and prints as well as my greeting cards and notebooks which are ideal as a small gift. As usual all my work is colourful and detailed and has the influence of medieval art and tapestries with carpets of flowers and lots of gold leaf.

Our studio is number 4 on the map attached and is part of a trail of 10 artists which can be easily visited walking or cycling as well as by car. We look forward to meeting you.
