Curious how art can transform your home?

Discover more: Bucks Art Weeks at Stony Stratford


As Bucks Art Weeks comes close, I’m thrilled to invite you to come along and see my work along with 6 other artists in the picturesque town of Stony Stratford. From June 8th to 16th, our doors will be open to art enthusiasts, nature lovers, and curious minds!

My animal and wildlife art will be on display alongside ceramics, mosaics, textiles, glass art and paintings of still life and landscapes.



What is Bucks Art Weeks?

Bucks Art Weeks is an annual celebration of art and creativity that takes place across Buckinghamshire. This yearly event sees artists and makers from all over the county opening their studios and homes to the public. It’s a fantastic opportunity for visitors to explore a wide range of art forms, meet the artists, and see where and how they work.

If coming to see art in a residential location makes you nervous? Don’t be. Last year we had over 400 visitors across the 9 days. There is lots of space to browse at your leisure with the artists on hand to chat to. There is on street parking, and most importantly we will also have some wonderful refreshments for a donation to Willen Hospice.


Our Venue: A Hidden Gem in Stony Stratford

Our exhibition space is not just any home. With its large garden well known for Open Gardens and its indoor space you will find beautifully displayed art. It's the perfect setting to lose yourself in the world of art and find inspiration for your home and garden around every corner. We also begin on the last weekend of Stony Live. The Sunday being the day of Folk on the Green, make a day of it and see what other amazing events are happening in Stony Stratford.


Meet the Artists and Their Creations

We are a collective of seven artists, each bringing a unique perspective and medium to our exhibition:

  • Sam Burke: Known for her stunning kiln-formed glass art that captures light and color in breathtaking ways.

  • Laurie Keck: A master of abstract and sculptural ceramics, Laurie’s work explores form and texture with striking originality.

  • Lesley Keck: Lesley’s landscape paintings invite you to journey through serene and evocative scenes, capturing the essence of the natural world.

  • Anna Woodhead: Specializing in textiles, Anna’s pieces blend intricate patterns and vibrant colors, creating tactile works of art.

  • Jennifer McAllister: Her still life and landscape paintings are a celebration of nature’s beauty, rendered with meticulous detail and warmth.

  • Melanie Mosaic: With her skill in mosaics, prints, and ceramics, Melanie creates intricate designs that add a touch of elegance and whimsy to any space.


And myself... bringing to life animal and wildlife art through the medium of oil painting. My work aims to capture the spirit of our wonderful animals using vintage music as well as more traditional painting and I also have a few abstract landscapes.
