Shelf Portraits have a trip out to Battersea Park AAF
Six of my Shelf Portraits were on display at the Affordable Art Fair Battersea Spring last weekend with the Nicholas Bowlby Gallery, and were much admired 🙂
Living Room Literature
The lovely Sarah Wah of Living Room Literature is displaying some of my work on her walls in her cosy flat, where she runs bespoke ‘sociable-but-serious’ literature courses for small groups of people looking to nurture or rekindle their love of books without leaving the comfort of a relaxed home environment. What a lovely idea!!
Dr Wah is a superb teacher, someone who can bring literary works alive for her students and who has the knack of passing onto them much of her own enthusiasm and close engagement with a wide variety of texts. Her love for literature is matched by her ability to ease you into understanding and appreciating the language, the structure, the meaning – everything, that is, that adds up to the beauty of the finest writing. She has a patience and a preciseness that keeps opening up new possibilities for her students.

stepping out of my comfort zone
I have been avoiding getting on with a promised sketch of the house of an old family friend, but last week knuckled down to it and really enjoyed doing something different.
Note to self: remember to leave comfort zone more often!
