26th July – 1st August 2017
Contemporary landscape paintings
  • New mixed media work based on the local landscape of Cheltenham and the Cotswold’s and some seascapes based on sketches and photos from trips to Cornwall and Devon.
  • The landscape paintings are of local tracks and trails around Gloucestershire these paintings are made using a combination of media and materials. These are predominantly local scenes that have been made from photos taken mainly whilst out running in the landscape. I was trained as a sculptor but now enjoy expressing my ideas through painting. My sculpture training has given me an appreciation and interest into the properties and characteristics of materials. I enjoy layering and combining media and experimenting with the different marks and effects that contrasting media can offer.
  • The seascapes tend to be larger scale works using a combination of media. I like to use the contrasting properties of media to give me contrasting marks and textures. These are made using a combination of dyes, inks, spray paint and oils to create a range of textures and effects. I like to capture scale and mood in these works.

Open Daily 10am – 5pm

Entry free




The Gardens were originally developed in the early 1800's and its centrepiece is the Bandstand.

  3. Unfortunately, there is no disabled parking in the gardens.
