Byard Art

Along Your Street exhibition
blog image

I have been invited by the wonderful staff at Byard Art to paint five new pieces for their June exhibition called 'Along Your Street'.

Byard Art is is a lovely gallery on King's Parade in Cambridge just about opposite the King's College Chapel. The five paintings can be seen in the 'Cambridge' gallery on my website. I have really enjoyed making the paintings and I am so excited that they will be on show in the centre of Cambridge.

Sketching at the Parker Library

blog imageblog image

One of my favourite destinations is the Parker Library at Corpus Christi, which is part of Cambridge University. I have always loved old manuscripts, tapestries and anything from around 1300AD. One of the most exciting things that happened was stepping into this fantastic library a couple of years ago and seeing thousands of old and beautifully bound books with the most amazing illuminations.

I feel very privileged to have become a reader here. I am different to the majority of others visiting the reading room who are writing PHDs or learned papers, I am really excited to be drawing from the books they keep.

Last week there were several visitors to the actual library and as we cannot be left alone (the books are priceless) I joined them in the main library and was able to sketch this beautiful interior and even included the librarian (Anne) and one of the visitors.
