A cafe in Daventry will be hosting a new exhibition by a artist at a special event on Saturday.

Silverstone based artist Kealey Farmer comes to the Evergreen Art Cafe in Sheaf Street from 11am to 3pm.

Visitors will be able to chat to Kealey about her work and enjoy an exhibition of her latest collection of stunning original and limited edition paintings.

She has been working as a full time artist since 2003. and has more than 25 years painting, drawing and personal study.

Born and raised in Derbyshire but now living in Silverstone with her husband, Kealey has been a full time artist for over 10 years.

Describing her work, Kealey said: “My work is mostly about sentiment and when I am putting together a piece of art, it is something I am very influenced by.

“It is also inspired by happiness and the feeling that it is good to be alive.”

She also works in a variety of different mediums but it is a surprising source material which has bought her the greatest success.

Kealey added: “I work with mixed media, including acryllics , resins and elements of 3D.

“I like as much bling as possible in my work and one of the things that I really like to use is the Swarovski crystals and I really like the effect that it will have on the finished painting.

“If you look at something like a traditional oil painting then it is always going to look as it does from a different angles.

“Because of using the crystals and the metallic paints I use, when it goes up on the wall it will look very different when the light hits it and I really like that quality it has. I also like that it will be different every time that you look at it.”

She has been working hard to produce the latest collection which will be on show at the event on Saturday.

Kealey said: “All of the work that I have produced is brand new for the show but I wanted to make sure that it was all new for the display.”

Kealey will include a personal dedication on the back of any pieces purchased during the exhibition.

She was also full of praise for the cafe which she will be visiting.

Kealey said: “I discovered it for the first time a few weeks ago and think it is a wonderful venue.

“I think art galleries can be very difficult to go. This place is a very relaxing environment to be able to enjoy art.

“I think it is a good match for the work that I do as well.”

One of the pieces sold is called Key to My Heart and money raised from its sale will be donated to the British Heart Foundation.
