The space is curated by local Suffolk artist, Victoria Petchey, who will be working at the art gallery painting her iconic bees and pet portraits.
“I predominantly paint images of animals, however, I also create artworks that focus on women, wildlife, nature, the environment and animal exploitation.
FELIXSTOWE’S NEWEST ART GALLERY AND ART SHOP.
I enjoy creating art that challenges our thoughts and feelings on particular subjects. The art materials I use are vegan friendly and I use minimal paint to avoid waste.
I share my home with three rescue cats, Rosa, Eric and Dora. They’re a daily inspiration for me and I love having them nearby when creating artwork.
I’ve been making and creating since I can remember. I feel art is for everyone, and to be enjoyed by all. Everyone can draw (don’t roll your eyes!) and I hope to encourage people of all ages to give art a go.Victoria Petchey
