Curwens Art Exhibition
You are invited to preview the works of Graham Rayner, Amy Carter and Sue Sanders.
I have enjoyed working with wood for most of my life, and I clearly remember receiving my first wood working tools at the age of just four years old. I design and make unique pieces of hand crafted bespoke furniture and enjoy making pieces with elegant proportions in interesting timbers. I repair and restore heirloom furniture, and I also make a range of clocks, boxes and turned work, which will be available to view at the Curwens gallery.
I re ignited my childhood passion for painting in 2016. Since then I have been experimenting and refining my style. My work includes large oil paintings of bold flowers. ‘I try to capture the natural beauty of the flowers sometimes painting them after they have started to wilt and decay, this gives a moody feel to the work.
I create landscape and animal portraits to commission. I have run an after school art club for many years, and I do landscape workshops for school children. I also design and paint scenery sets for our annual pantomime. My current work is connected to wordplay and I will be displaying these images as small framed monoprints. I also explore the textures, markings and light of the agricultural landscape near my home, painting in both acrylic and oils
