I have an exhibition of my paintings at The Art Bank Cafe in Shepton Mallet, Somerset.  Opening night is on Thursday the 5th of October and closes on the 30th.


The exhibition will be a mixture of oil paintings and watercolours and I am really looking forward to exhibiting here at The Art Bank. This cafe possesses a lovely creative and vibrant atmosphere. During the exhibition I will be painting an interior of the cafe ‘live’, so, if you are about, you can pop in and see how I work.

A bit about the Art bank Cafe

Housed in a former high street bank and home to the Art Bank Cafe and Rubbish Art Project, the surroundings are fabulously creative: an inclusive and diverse community-run venue for the people by the people.
