A busy mum-of-three from Royston who usually has to wait until her boys are asleep before starting a project is excited to be exhibiting her artwork at Curwens Gallery in the High Street.
Lisa Stanway has always loved art but hasn’t had much time since having children – although it seems the artistic flair runs in the family as her eldest George is a talented artist who she suspects will be exhibiting his own work very shortly.
The 38-year-old experiments with a range of materials from oil painting, to silk painting, decoupage to polymer clay.
The exhibition in Curwens will feature pyrography – the art of decorating wood by burning a design on the surface with a heated metal point – and a mosaic bowl.
Lisa said: “I was encouraged when I sold my first oil painting and gave all the profit to Macmillan Cancer Support.
“I am very lucky to have a shelf in craft shop No.3 where recently I raised £180 for the Poppy Appeal with my handmade poppy brooches.
“The Curwens exhibition is an exciting way for me to show some of my work and to have it displayed in their window for every passerby to see is a great honour.”
Everyone is welcome to the preview evening next Thursday – January 21 – between 6pm and 8pm to enjoy a glass of wine and meet Lisa and the other two local artists exhibiting, Emily Cook and Philippa Sanders.
