This is the third of five paintings that hung at the 'Along Your Street' exhibition at Byard Art between 31 May and 1 July 2018.
I love Cambridge. I love it's quirkiness and the amount of people that have PhD's in all sorts of weird and wonderful subjects even though they look just like everyone else. I love the buildings, although I don't know exactly what happens inside them - and I love the free museums.
Some time ago I painted a 'Tree of Cambridge' which had an assortment of images from town and gown. My 'Tree of Discovery' delves a bit deeper. It is another puzzle so I won't give a list of what the images represent but if you have tried to guess them, please email and I will send you the list of references.
A print is available of this painting.
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.
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 Christmas Cracker Exhibition at Byard Art from 10 November to 24 December and I shall also be taking part in a Winter Open Studio at 5 Church Street 24 & 25 November 2018.
