In the week after Open Studios, I visited Kerry McKenna in Studley Grange Craft Village in Hay Lane, it's behind Blooms Garden Centre, and a revelation, there is so much to see there. If like me you hadn't been, it's certainly worth a trip out there. I also met Nigel Ferris who took part in SOS several years ago, I bought a T shirt depicting one of his smoke designs on the front in black and blue, it looked better on him than mine does on me.
But back to Kerry. Kerry paints on slate and other things like violins, and anything customers request, she is prolific; her unit is packed with examples of her work:
Kerry's website gives more information.
From there I went to meet up with Susie Carr, art therapist at Prospect Hospice who gives such confidence and inspiration to her clients.
Here are examples of work on the walls:
