A big start into 2023 for me. Soon I’ll be a part of the John Hughes Art Fair at Jesus College. Because it is my first exhibition within any of Cambridge Colleges (and I’m hoping not the last one) I’m preparing a special surprise … aaaand of course it will be one of my fantastic paintings, but also – ‘Jesus College Entrance’ will be the first painting in a new ‘College Entrances’ sub-series.

Please come and visit either to buy or just to say Hello:
Date: Saturday 11th February, 1- 4pm
Venue: Forum Hall, Jesus College CB5 8BL (enter via Westcourt)

At the fair I’ll have some A3 size prints and some Greeting Cards with the same motif. Cash and card purchases are possible ๐Ÿ™‚
