This is the fourth painting I have made especially for the exhibition 'Along Your Street' which takes place at Byard Art on King's Parade from 31 May to 1 July.
I think you can say that this view is not strictly true but artists are allowed to 'improve' the view aren't they?
This skyline is one that all the visitors see on King's Parade as well as everyone who has something to do with the central colleges of Cambridge University, although many residents stay well away in the summer because this street can get very packed. Beautiful skyline that it is, a tree can always make things more lovely, or is that just my personal opinion.
I paint detailed, dream-like images in oils on canvas which incorporate rich night skies and a shining moon. Images 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.
Look out the brand new Cambridge Art Book that features 51 artists and their impressions of Cambridge. I am delighted to have two images in this book. Please contact me if you would like to buy a copy.
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. My work can also be seen at exhibitions. Look out for the 'Along Your Street' exhibition at Byard Art between 31 May and 1 July 2018.
