My first exhibition this year will be with WOS.
Made in Kenilworth - Part of Kenilworth Arts Festival September 2021. Dates to be confirmed.
Prints and cards of my Kenilworth paintings are available all year around at the Farthing Gallery Kenilworth.
Hello there, welcome to my bit of the Warwickshire Open Studio 2021 virtual gallery.
This is my 4th year as a WOS exhibitor, and although 2020’s summer event was cancelled my artistic year was not totally lost to the strangeness of lockdown. Before we found ourselves confined to home most of my paintings were inspired by the beautiful coastal and mountain scenes typical of Pembrokeshire, photographs and plein air sketching providing resources to work from when back at home in Kenilworth.
Fortunately I’ve found the local scenery more than enough inspiration, during long walks taking many photographs, I soon built up enough creative buzz for me to get my brushes out.
I noticed early on that the skies and the surrounding landscape took on a more fresh and crystal clear look, as the pollution levels dropped. The sunrises and sunsets have been breathtaking and surreal. Also painting the scenery in Kenilworth has forced me to deal with capturing trees in all their seasonal guises and I’ve tried to negotiate the skills involved in painting nocturnes which are especially tricky.
I now have a small body of original oil paintings, framed prints and cards available that I hope you would enjoy coming to see during this summer’s WOS event, at St John’s church Kenilworth high street where I will be exhibiting along with19 other Kenilworth artists. In the meantime both my prints and cards are available through the fabulous Farthing Gallery in Old Town Kenilworth.
