NEW EXHIBITIONS

We’ve two new inspirational exhibitions opening on 26 September as part of our Artisan programme.

KELLY VINCENT – ‘THROUGH MY EYES’
26 SEP – 12 OCT

Kelly is an abstract artist with a love for working with resin, wood and texture. She was born in Oxford although she spent 10 years of her childhood growing up in Southern Spain. Kelly now lives in Buckinghamshire with her husband and two children.

After working in London as a Police Officer for 12 years, Kelly was diagnosed with PTSD, Anxiety and Depression. As a way to channel her nervous energy and boost her mood she started painting. Painting allowed her to switch off and for once in her life, be completely present in the moment. Painting has been an amazing therapy for Kelly, and it has helped her reach a place in her life where she is simply happy and exactly where she wants to be.

With a simple goal to hold on to that feeling of happiness, Kelly is now a full-time artist working from her home studio in Buckinghamshire.
