2021 has brought some new commissions.
A commission through West Midlands Railways funded by the Department of Transport, for an illustrated map at Ledbury Railway Station has been given to three artists in Ledbury. Caroline Owen-Thomas who is a local calligrapher, Cheryl Davies who is an illustrator and myself, are making paintings, drawings and calligraphic text, working with Gareth Davies who worked with rail authorities to put together this project. The map will celebrate this historic market town, rich in Tudor timbered buildings and a High Street full of examples of Elizabethan and Georgian architecture. Here are two examples of recent paintings Jeanette has made for her contribution to this project.
A second commission came from The Ledbury Poetry Festival to paint murals in their new premises, The Barratt-Browning Institute on Ledbury High Street. Here is a recent painting, inspired by the poet Sinead Morrisey. Check the Gallery page to have a look at the rest of the murals.
