Painting Frenzy!!

Had a bit of a painting frenzy yesterday, starting several new paintings at once (as I am want to do…)


It was a nice contrast to sitting in the gallery over the weekend contemplating my paintings and chatting with all the lovely visitors to my exhibition.

Headphones on; paintbrush in hand; stepping back from the canvas every so often for a quick groove-around-the-studio when the music carries me off…..

New Exhibition by Roo S Waterhouse in Hebden Bridge


Local artist Roo Waterhouse has a short exhibition of paintings at the newly opened Unit Three Gallery at Northlight Art Studios in Hebden Bridge. The exhibition will be opening on Friday 5th June from 6.30-8pm, and will run over the weekend of Saturday 6th June and Sunday 7th June, from 11am to 4pm.

Since graduating from Leeds Metropolitan University in 2010, Roo has established herself as a figurative painter with a fascination towards poetic narrative, exhibiting widely across the North of England in solo exhibitions and in London galleries. She was a finalist in the Artist and Illustrator ‘Artist of the Year 2013’ show at The Mall Galleries, London. Her paintings are collected around the country.


This exhibition contains a series of new book paintings (‘Shelf-Portraits’) alongside some old favourites. All the paintings on show are on their way down to three galleries in London: ‘Unwritten Book’ has been accepted for the Llewellyn Alexander Gallery’s ‘Not the Royal Academy’ Show (8th June – 22nd August); Orso major Gallery in Waterloo will be stocking all Roo’s new ‘Shelf-Portrait’ paintings; and her larger scale ‘domestic’ paintings will be in an exhibition at Gallery98 Tower Bridge Road (12th June – 5th July).

Roo’s paintings are little personal poems, celebrating the significance of our treasured possessions. They each resonate with their own story and together form a narrative, an echo of personal and family identity. ‘’By capturing everyday objects and preserving them in paint I seek to pay homage to those things around us which we often may take for granted, and to remind us to stop and appreciate them.’’


Come and see her work before it all goes down to London!
