Cambridge Illumination

Cambridge University is made up of 36 colleges, the oldest being Peterhouse. This painting shows the 16 original colleges which attract thousands of visitors every year. Even though I live in Cambridge and they are part of my daily life, they never cease to fill me with awe.

My painting is a bit of a puzzle as I have only shown part of each college, how many do you know as they are a little out of context? Here they are tidied into lines with the river Cam meandering around them and the cows on the commons.

If you would like a list of the colleges shown, please email me.

A print is also available of this artwork.

I paint detailed, dream-like images in oils on canvas which incorporate rich night skies and a shining moon. Stories inspired by the detail and pattern of medieval art, tapestries and my imagination. My work is very influenced by the wonderful city of Cambridge where I live.

Photographs can never do justice to my paintings as they change when the light catches the silver or copper leaf. If you would like to view my actual paintings please contact me to arrange a visit to my studio. My work can also be seen at Byard Art, 14 King's Parade, Cambridge CB2 1SJ, opposite King's College Chapel and at Lux Gallery, 13 Greenfield Cres, Birmingham B15 3AU.

I also take part in Cambridge Open Studios every July where you can visit me in my home studios and 'have a go' at gilding.
