Regular readers will know that Laureen Katiyo is a regular contributor to the blog and I was delighted to be invited to a preview of her paintings at  St John’s Chapel, Christ Church, Isle of Dogs.

Laureen is a talented writer and photographer, however this is her first art exhibition and her paintings show the strong influence of her Zimbabwean heritage.  She is a self-taught artist who began painting at school before putting down her brushes to concentrate on her academic education and then a career in economic development.

In the last couple of years, Laureen has picked up her brushes again and experimented with a variety of styles.

Various wildlife paintings dominate the exhibition and provide plenty of energy and colour.

If the animals provide the colour, Laureen’s monochrome pictures show her skill in portraits.

Another striking portrait in a different style is Damio – Vermelho.

An added bonus if you want visit the exhibition is that you have a look around the church, Christ Church is one of the most attractive churches on the Island and has a number of interesting pieces of religious art dating back to 1852.
