Welcome to my site, which again in summer 2021 will be helping to raise much needed funds for the Lymington Oakhaven Hospice. For two years together with my colleagues Janet, James and Christina, we held art workshops at the Coates Centre, the service provided by Oakhaven for the community. We help people whose lives have been impacted by illness. Sadly we have had to stop until the pandemic retreats.
In 2020, despite the coronavirus, we managed to hold an exhibition of our paintings, prints, cards and homemade preserves mostly out of doors, outside my studio. The weather was largely kind, and a steady stream of friends, neighbours and local supporters helped us raise over £1400 - even exceeding our 2019 total. 14 paintings found new homes, as well as many cards and pots of jam.
From 21-30 August 2021 I will be opening my studio again, government restrictions permitting, as part of Hampshire Open Studios. Please do come and support us. Paintings can be bought from the website at any time, with revenues promised to go to Oakhaven.
