Cherry blossom painting hanging in The Raglan Suite reception

I was recently commissioned by The Raglan Suite in Harrogate, North Yorkshire, to create these four brightly coloured paintings for the reception area of this prestigious dental practice and skin treatment suite.

One of the directors originally saw my artwork a while ago, collects it and loves the fact that I am a local Harrogate artist and that my work is inspired by nature.

Some people can be anxious at the thought of visiting the dentist and having work done on their teeth. However, The Raglan Suite are forward thinking with an emphasis on service and care of the patient, from the selection of complimentary refreshments available through to the experience in clinic and now with offering clients the chance to look at my original nature themed artwork adorning their walls.

It has recently been discovered that just looking at pictures of nature is enough to lower your stress levels. Indeed, a study has been undertaken by researchers at Vrije University Medical Centre in Holland which found that viewing nature scenes is particularly effective in supporting relaxation.

I created four paintings for the Raglan Suite which include a large canvas The Cherry Trees on The Stray in Harrogate and a triptych of trees all created locally ‘en plein air’.

At the end of April, I adore going outside with my canvases and painting the glorious blossom on The Stray which forms a beautiful pink archway. I just use a fallen twig to paint with, no paint brushes, creating the structure of the trees and blossom. If fallen blossom lands on the canvas, the petals stick to the paint and it becomes part of the painting. The triptych of trees was painted locally using twigs, leaves and moss.

I am so pleased to see my artwork hanging on the walls of the reception of The Raglan Suite. The bright colours of my paintings set against a neutral grey backdrop, perfectly compliment the décor, and glad that the ‘outside’ has been brought ‘inside’ for all to enjoy. Thank you to The Raglan Suite.

I love elephants. They are such gracious, gentle creatures with a strong family bond. For many years I have cut out designs from paper and then transferred that skill to create stainless steel artworks.
