www.elmermaidstone.co.uk

Yay! The Elmer Art Trail is now live and I am now able to show you my completed journey with the Elmer project. Just Bee is now located in Brenchley Gardens in Maidstone and he is no 15. I have also volunteered to be a Trail Maker with the Heart Of Kent Hospice so you may bump into me on the trail. Please also visit the Elephant House (Fremlin Walk) and the Elmer HQ in the Mall.  And if you can get the app on the app store and collect the codes.

These pieces of work were painted for the online auction taking place for the Heart of Kent Hospice Auction. Local artists were asked to submit work for the auction and I chose to theme my work around the gardens of the National Trust Sissinghurst. These gardens are so inspirational and at the time closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Think I am due a visit when the current situation is over.

Gingko Dryad - This is one of my first illustrations drawn with traditional dip pen and watercolour. I was inspired by two of my favourite illustrators Arthur Rackham and Edmond Dulac. The background wash is walnut ink.

The exhibition at The Rochester Gallery was set up by Luna Zsigo who is an amazing Chatham artist. She brought together art made in lockdown by local artists.
