I am so excited to have been invited to take part in the Cambridge Art Book. 51 Cambridge artists have their work in this beautiful book and I am delighted to say 2 of my images will be there, the Tree of Cambridge and Sundown. I will have copies to sell during Cambridge Open Studios or please contact me.
I shall be sharing a stall with Maureen Charles for the Haddenham Festival. This annual event is a real treat in June. There will be lots of artists and makers selling and demonstrating their wares in the lovely Sculpture Garden Meadow, bands playing both days, a kids zone with stories and messy play, Morris dancing, delicious Indian food, afternoon teas....
.... and the organisers have booked some sunny weather.
It is almost 9 months since I became a reader at the wonderful Parker Library which houses an exquisite collection of Medieval Manuscripts. I have drawn images from the Corpus Apocalypse, The Trinity Apocalypse and my favourite, the Peterborough Bestiary which is full of the most well observed animals both real and imaginary.
So far I have made two oil paintings on canvas based on images taken from the ideas of artists living in 1304 and updated them to a contemporary illustrative style.
This one is called Bird Bath.
