An exhibition at Michaelhouse Open November 4 - 16 2013 8am - 5pm Mon to Sat
blog imageblog image

Ten enthusiastic students from my classes at Cambridge Art Classes have organised an exhibition of their work at Michaelhouse in Trinity Street, Cambridge - a converted church serving some of the most delicious food in the city.

People of all ages and backgrounds have joined the art classes, some are retired and wanting to have a go, some use art to overcome difficulties in their lives, some are home educated and others have one-off lessons to celebrate birthdays or produce a piece of art for a friend.

None of the students in this exhibition have shown their work before. There is a huge variety of styles and media, from painting to sculpture, from acrylic to monoprints. It has been an exciting experience for all as they prepare to show the public their work and it makes a stunning display.

Silvanite Woods

New Exhibition at Addenbrookes Hospital from 3 August to 9 October 2013
blog imageblog image

Ten brand new paintings make up this novel set featuring gold, copper and silver metal leaf to highlight the branches and trunks of these decorative sections of trees based on medieval tapestries, William Morris and Eastern miniatures.

This series is a progression of my mythical trees based on folklore and a few of the larger paintings are also on show including the Tree of Peace and the Tree of Plenty.

The corridor where the paintings hang is close to the Treatment Centre and the entrance to the Rosie Hospital. The metal leaf shines as you walk past lighting up different parts of the pictures.

Addenbrookes has a wonderful reputation not only as a hospital but also for its ever-changing art in the long corridors connecting the different departments. If you are visiting the hospital do look out for the paintings, they will make you smile.

Tree of Knowledge

Hughes Hall
blog imageblog image

Last year during Cambridge Open Studios I sold a large oil painting of the Tree of Knowledge. This painting was bought by a member of the college who has donated it to Hughes Hall.

There will be a garden party at the college this July where the painting will be officially handed over to which I have been invited. Needless to say I am very excited about this and to think that it will be hanging in the Pavilion for all the students and lecturers to see in the future makes me very proud.

Thank you to everyone involved.

Art on The Hill

Friend's School, Saffron Walden
blog image

The Friend's School are holding a wonderful exhibition where local artists will be displaying new work. I shall be showing two new oil paintings, small but intricately detailed, at a special price to help raise funds for the school.

Painted on a rich blue sky background with a full moon, the stylized branches are made of copper metal leaf with masses of individually painted leaves laden with flowers and fruit. Reminiscent of William Morris but also evoking the exquisite backgrounds of medieval art.
