                                                                                      West Barn, Bradford on Avon

Solo Exhibition exploring the nature of light.


The natural light within the nearby Tithe Barn, the way it interacts with the darkness, the way it can be seen to move with  time as well as the extraordinary effects of dust in the sunlight intrigued and captivated the artist. The Tithe barn itself is fourteenth century and is lovingly guarded by English Heritage - a perfect time capsule. Changes in light on the landscape and sky were also explored in oil paint in the exhibition.


Comments book:

'Wonderful, full of mist and light'

'A very exciting exhibition of light and drama. We shall enjoy living with such wonderful paintings.'

'Fantastic. You've found your voice - Beautiful, exciting and full of those once only moments (such as the white paint picking up just the tops of the canvas.)

So ALIVE.'

'I'm enjoying the light and great atmospheres in your work'.
