Norfolk Open Studios No 268

Saturday 25th September to Sunday 3rd October 2021

Ringstead Village Hall, High Street, Ringstead, PE36 5JU, 10am to 5pm daily

From Saturday 25th September to Sunday 3rd October I will be taking part in this year’s NOS in a group show along with two other Ringstead artists, David Lendrum, Helga Joergens, at the Ringstead Village Hall, West Norfolk, PE36 5JU. Our works are Individual yet complimentary, united in bold forms, colour and texture and should present a colourful and uplifting exhibition

I will be showing my latest work celebrating our native Norfolk wildflowers.  Found in hedgerows, waste land, curb sides and meadows all around the village of Ringstead, these humble plants have been the focus of my attention throughout these strange times. I have studied, photographed and sketched these plants and even grown some from seed and documented their progress from seedling to flower.  For the final paintings I have used acrylic paint, enjoying its fast-drying properties and applied it with palette knives and other mark making objects to create gestural and textural effects to give a rich and spontaneous expression of this ever rewarding, ever changing subject. Throughout the exhibition we will be working in ‘pop up' studio spaces experimenting with ideas and creating new works.

A Feast For the Eye

Exhibition now finished.  For further information please email me.
