New Commission and Creative Quiet Day

New Commission and Matisse ‘Tree of Life’ window Creative Quiet Day -

I am continuing to develop oil canvases in the studio including a new commission for
a young couple who got in touch at the end of 2020.  (Colour study for the commission below).

Together with Becky Morse-Brown, an Art Therapist and Spiritual Companion, I have started to offer some Creative Quiet Mornings using Zoom this year. In January we held two Creative Quiet Mornings particularly reflecting on Matisse’s ‘Tree of Life window’ from his majestic Chapel of the Rosary in Vence. We have two more Creative Quiet Mornings planned for February and early March.

The mornings include input from the facilitators around the theme, opportunities to work creatively in silence and, for those who wish, time during the session to share reflections with one another.

Each group is limited to a maximum of six participants plus the facilitators. The February and March dates are now fully booked but please contact me if you would like your name to be added to our ‘Creative Quiet Day’ mailing list.

We were very encouraged by feedback to the mornings:

“Inspiring and relaxing.”

Allowed you to sink into the ideas and images.”

“The chance to play and enjoy making in a shared space was really wonderful.”

“It really re-stocked my ‘trout pond’ and was a joy to be part of.”

“Thank you for a wonderfully absorbing and transporting morning.”
