The MUSE Leamington Spa
I am excited to share with you all my most recent collaboration with The Muse, a local independent coffee house in my local town of Leamington Spa.
Tracie reached out to me back in March, when I was at the start of rediscovering my creative journey. Tracie very kindly offered me a space at The Muse to collaborate and exhibit my work. After an incredibly inspiring visit to the Jurassic coast of North Somerset back in April I soon found myself immersed in creating a mini series of 5 paintings especially for The Muse entitled ‘Cretaceous Coasts’.
The geological history of that area has always fascinated me; the many millions of years where the coastal erosion has left exposed almost a continuous sequence of rock formations, fossils and the many creatures which have been permanently trapped into the land and preserved by the rocks and soil. I wanted to encapsulate the area visually through my work; the use of a natural and organic colour palette, layers and textures and also through my emotional response to time and space whilst taking in the surrounding.
These works are available now to view and buy in The Muse, and will be available to view and buy on my website very soon.
