Cambridge University is made up of 36 colleges, the oldest being Peterhouse. This painting shows the 16 original colleges which attract thousands of visitors every year. Even though I live in Cambridge and they are part of my daily life, they never cease to fill me with awe.
My painting is a bit of a puzzle as I have only shown part of each college, how many do you know as they are a little out of context? Here they are tidied into lines with the river Cam meandering around them and the cows on the commons.
If you would like a list of the colleges shown, please email me.
A print is also available of this artwork.
I paint detailed, dream-like images in oils on canvas which incorporate rich night skies and a shining moon. Stories 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.
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 to my studio. My work can also be seen at exhibitions: look out for the Along Your Street Exhibition at Byard Art in June 2019, Cambridge Drawing Society exhibitions in April and October 2019 as well as Cambridge Open Studios 2019.
