This month I’ve been taking part in Warwickshire Open Studios at Warwick Museum. One of the fascinating things about creating something for people to look at, is taking a step back and watching them look at it. People get in close, discuss the painting, some even touch the surface. I overhear snippets of conversation about what the piece means to them – it triggers a memory of a holiday somewhere years ago, or a place they used to live, or just “a joyful feeling” said someone. I love that people connect with particular shapes and colours and create their own stories.
I’ve so far seen several pieces go off to new homes, including two of my favourites: ‘I knew I’d go back one day’ (68x87cm, mixed media on board) and Golden Thread 1 (33x33cm, mixed media on board) which I’m over the moon about. I have one final day of Open Studios remaining – so if you’re in the Warwick area, or fancy a trip out to this historic market town, I’ll be showing my work at Warwick Museum this coming Saturday (29 June) from 10am-5pm. Please drop by and say hello!
In other news, I’m delighted to announce that I have new gallery representation. You can now find my work at Wychwood Art Gallery. The piece below has already found a new home through the gallery!
“Feels like summer”. Mixed media on canvas 52×62 cms.
If you’d like to find out more about any of the pieces on my website, please drop me a line.
Till next time,
