I’m greatly looking forward to being a part of the art buzz at the New Artist Fair at the Old Truman Brewery next weekend. Lots of new Shelf-Portrait work coming down to London with me, as well as a good selection of Limited Edition Giclee prints, framed and unframed….

Had a little ‘practice hang’ last week…

My latest commission, for the Dunbar family, looking quite at home! I soooo enjoyed painting this one….

Living Room Literature

030-3

The lovely Sarah Wah of Living Room Literature is displaying some of my work on her walls in her cosy flat, where she runs bespoke ‘sociable-but-serious’ literature courses for small groups of people looking to nurture or rekindle their love of books without leaving the comfort of a relaxed home environment. What a lovely idea!!

Living Room Literature Slider

Dr Wah is a superb teacher, someone who can bring literary works alive for her students and who has the knack of passing onto them much of her own enthusiasm and close engagement with a wide variety of texts. Her love for literature is matched by her ability to ease you into understanding and appreciating the language, the structure, the meaning – everything, that is, that adds up to the beauty of the finest writing. She has a patience and a preciseness that keeps opening up new possibilities for her students.

Shelf-portraits at Living Room Literature

Lovely to see my shelf-portraits hanging on Sarah Wah’s wall at ‘Living Room Literature’

I hope they inspire some creative literary conversations among her students!
