AN exhibition showcasing the work of a village artist will be taking place in Meldreth from today.

This will be the second year that Christina Howard has put on a display of her own work.

Christina said: "I started painting in 1998, and after that I never stopped.

"The paintings give me a peaceful, wonderful feeling, and I hope I can encourage many people to come and take a look, especially mums like me who are looking after young children."

The abstract paintings on show are based on the idea of feelings and emotions, and Christina believes that people's spiritual side can be connected through art.

Christina, who studied naturopathy with a distinguished doctor in Malaga, has worked in Africa with children who have Aids.

She hopes to set up an activities programme at which people will be able to take part in painting and textiles as well as working with nature and aromatic oils to create a relaxing atmosphere.

The exhibition can be found at 21 Whitecroft Road, Meldreth and will take place Monday to Friday from 10am-3pm in May and June and at weekends only in July.
