SPRING at THE PAXTON CENTRE

Some may have seen the ( unwatermarked) Giclee prints of these at Beckenham Mansion (one is permantly hanging in the cafe in the basement) at our open studio days.

But I have been invited to show my work at The Paxton Centre , this month.

Binary

The original prints are very different to these watermarked on screen impressions, but more important is the environment and ambience of the art cafe – which enhances the intentions, when I created this series, that I called ‘Cogitation’.

Contemplating our human condition and encouraging the mindfull state of mind we expereince for instance; when viewing art.

This weekend (27th of April 2019) coming, Crystal Palaces Artists are opening their doors for the weekend.

So why not come out and ponder over Art at OPEN STUDIOS in Crystal Palace 

and ponder of what you see and how you feel.

city

Get out in this city of ours and discover what is around you and how you feel within.

You never know what beauty you may find in things you may not have considered worth a second look – or just thinking about it.

I will be out and about to in Crystal Palace this weekend:  probably sipping a coffee at the Paxton Centre, whilst pondering and processing impression and things I rest my eyes upon or seeking inspiration of all those other talents around us. Having a sneak behind the scenes of those artists in Crystal Palace.

Get in touch over social media , happy to share impressions and views and listen to yours.

These paintings of mine are available as  Giclee Prints (beautiful pigment sprayed on thick paper),

framed and ready to adorn your walls, at the Paxton Centre. All of my work will come down next week, so get out there and get a piece of art to ponder over.

Happy spring and new beginnings to you all.

A picture of vision

visionboard

As time passes I have been transitioning from Photography and capturing what is ( in front of the lens) to a bigger intrigue of what we can’t see, the world of the Arts and the creative Industry.

book 6

As Photographer I have been able to capture what is ‘real’; often following the guidance of intuition and what feels right and true.

With recent developments of my work life in the creative industry ( Supporting Artist for TV & Film and other productions)  the arts  has become a new focus and I have taken up the arts practice of painting and  artprints – contemplating humanity and the current social realism.

book 2

With my studio practice at BECKENHAM PLACE MANSION as Photographer ( yes I still take Portraits, intrigued by each individual, that comes to sit in Photography Studio sessions) and Artist( exhibiting at present and in the past year) ; nestled in a growing and changing community and park, the arts has become more of an immediate interest.

Expressing what is real in creations of ‘VisionBoards and Artist Books” ; an individual experience and vision but yet a uniting Intuition; visualising what you knew but couldn’t quite see.book 3.jpg

Looking to nurture this  instinct and the vision of creativity and change; following senses and a flow – often left behind in ordinary lives. I will be facilitating workshops at Beckenham place Mansion, open to the Community. Starting in May 2019.

Keep your eyes on the EVENTS PAGE

You will be able to create your own vision board – I am there to help you along – or manipulate old books to create something new,

book 9

Often a quite brutal method to create something else- to make note of what is new ?

book 11

…or learn how to bind all those pieces of memory of your experiences, travels …

( those bits of paper you never know what to do with) into a book.

Hope to see you there – let’s get creative and get a picture of vision, embracing change and creativity.

COGITATION – Exhibition #studiomansionhouse

Here we are 2018 and I am pondering over how last year finished and the new year begun – all guns blazing. And developments are to be found left right and centre, but for now let’s look around us.

As many know my creative home with office and studio has not just given me the space to grow and develop it has also given  me amble situations to be inspired and to inspire.

This very view, walks and the trees have inspired my new artwork and conception  (so far only to be seen offline!) a series that I named ‘Cogitation’ .

Only last month (so last year, right !?!) have we come together as a collective and most of us Mansion artists have hung some work to be displayed for the Christmas celebrations and events.

Artists at the Mansion

I choose  portrait style images that have been immortalized in fine giclee prints and been brought into the material 3 dimensional world and graced these very walls of the Mansion.

And yes it was harder to get ’em up than you could imagine.

exhibition hanging

Well this was so very last year and my portfolio, sketch book, ideas and inspiration boards have grown and dare I mention my diary is nicely filling up with exciting assignments and happenings.

Still if you feel the need to contemplate and be pictured, creating an image of you that perhaps touches on a little bit more than just the surface :

Please contact me and book your visit at the Mansion, even if it is for just an informal visit and cuppa tea… Or let me know if you want to join my mailing list for the release and sharing of some of more artwork (Yep facebook is not gonna have those images anytime soon) .

You won’t forget or regret the experience.Portrait femme
