‘I produce art across various media including: oil painting, pen drawing, pastels, textiles and wood sculpture. As a child of the sixties (ageing hippy!) much of the influences on my work originate from that era. My work tends to deal with an internal landscape as pure imagination. As each piece develops subconscious elements take over and it takes on a life of its own. The 3D work I do is almost always wood, a medium that you have to work with rather than on and I enjoy the organic nature of it.’

Neil will be in the Trestle Gallery Cafe for informal meet and greet sessions throughout the exhibition, where anyone is welcome to come along and chat to him about  his work.

Tuesdays: 9th, 16th and 23rd September from 1:30-3:30pm

The Herts Open Studios event began in 1991 and has been held every year since then. Its aim is to make the arts more accessible to the public, and to make the public more aware of the art and craft that is created around them. All professional and amateur artists, photographers and craftspeople living or working in Hertfordshire are welcome to apply for entry to participate. Each year around 200 artists take part and around 11,000 – 13,000 members of the public visit the studios. The event is organised by an Open Studios Project Manager with the help of a team of Area Coordinator volunteers.
