Recent paintings relating to walks around the Malvern Hills

Those of us who live and work in Ledbury are fortunate to be able to walk into remarkably varied countryside to feed our creativity and raise our spirit. We can climb onto Dog Hill and then up onto Bradwell Knoll where John Masefield walked as a boy. We can walk along Marcle Ridge to the East, glimpsing a patchwork of fields or explore the paths to the South where the group known as the Dymock Poets, including Robert Frost and Edward Thomas walked and talked. The magnificent Malvern Hills are an ever present backdrop to our lives.

My concertina book and painted canvases are from a series of work about my walks. These paintings and book was my work submitted for the Bookarts exhibition for the Ledbury Poetry Festival 2018, at Weavers Gallery.

My contribution to the 2017 h’Art exhibition of work from Ledbury BookArts group is a collection of tiny drawings made in a subjective manner relating to people I have met over past years  presented in a grid in a concertina format. The venue is ‘The Panelled Room’ in a remarkable, recently restored medieval building in the centre of Ledbury. The exhibition runs during h’Art week 2017 until Sunday September 17th.2017
