I will be in the Herts Open Studios in the week beginning 26 September 2021 at a pop up shop in Harpenden. Details of the venue will be published nearer the time so watch this space.
I have always been fascinated by landscapes and felt the restrictions of lockdown very keenly. For me, art begins with looking and seeing the beauty all around us. When unable to travel, I spent happy hours painting scenes in my garden such as ‘Happy Retirement’ but I longed for glimpses of the sea, cliffs, mountains and lakes. As soon as restrictions eased I went to Devon and in just a week I amassed material for dozens of paintings. I made Staycation Devon 2021 the theme for my exhibition at the Hitchin Big Art Fair this year, as I wanted to remind people to value all the beautiful landscapes we have in the UK. I intend to paint collections of landscapes from other areas of outstanding natural beauty in the British Isles and I am constructing a new website to capture all of this art. So keep an eye out for Beautiful UK Landscapes coming your way soon.
