The Oxford Art Book
One of my pieces of work, “May Day Celebrations, Magdalen Bridge, Oxford” (Above) was picked out of hundreds of entries to be included in the exclusive Oxford Art Book which is out now. The most surprising thing was that the editor originally did a Google search for Oxford artists’ images and my image popped up. She then contacted me to see if it was available to be published. The book has already received a lot of initial praise from Miriam Margolyes, Rick Stein, Helen Fielding and Jeremy Paxman, all Oxford locals. My favourite is the quote from journalist John Simpson, “Oxford may well be the most consciously beautiful city in Europe, and I get a daily kick out of wandering round its streets. It’s a brilliant idea to let today’s artists show us the grand sights – and the intimate ones as well”. Copies can be ordered through www.theoxfordartbook.co.uk.
