The exhibition explores changing seasons with artwork inspired by the surrounding countryside, featuring exclusive new nature paintings from my studio in Painswick.

'Spring Watch', 'Under the Vines', 'Apple Juice' & 'Fat Robin'

Each month I host a Cotswold Natural Mindfulness walk; these embrace all the senses, focusing on perspectives of landscape, art and life. As part of the exhibition, I will be guiding a new walk from the gates of Cirencester Park, concluding at the museum for refreshments.

The exhibition will give an idea of the seasonal life of an artist and the abundance of inspirations in the Cotswolds. Each wall will display a different season with locations from the Slad Valley to Bath.

Most of the paintings are conceived from my desire to seek new landscapes and experiences. Guiding natural mindfulness walks has allowed me to capture the atmosphere of a place and explore it at a deeper level. My aim is to to bring nature back home with me and the best way I find of expressing this is by reinterpreting my ventures into meditative artwork.

The display also presents the story of my background in Cirencester, Guiting Power and Cheltenham, with a room devoted to family and loved ones.

Time-lapse videos of my art process and recordings of natural mindfulness experiences will be shown at the exhibition, along with displays of seasonal objects and artefacts, used as inspiration for the sketches and paintings. Limited edition prints and greeting cards will also be available.

Cirencester is Roman Britain’s second largest city and regarded as the ‘Capital of the Cotswolds’. The award winning Corinium Museum, located at the heart of this bustling town is home to one of the largest collections of Romano-British antiquities extensively from Corinium and also has extensive collections in the Pre-historic, Anglo-Saxon and Victorian eras.
