Earlier in the week, on Wednesday 13 June, I went along to the private viewing at Daniel Raphael Gallery on Church Street in NW8.

It’s artist Victoria Young Jamieson’s first solo show, titled Sunburnt Mud Begins to Crack. I was lucky to speak to the Dorset based landscape artist. She was in high demand that evening, naturally… so I was delighted to ask my long list of questions, which she graciously answered.

Namely hearing about her roots in Cornwall and time spent in Bristol. As well as the locations shown in her Works, from Yosemite in the USA to the Alps in Switzerland/France/Italy. The latter ‘spoke’ to me the loudest. For me, nothing quite comes close to the magnificence of the Matterhorn. It always brings back fond memories of a trip I took in my teens “Girls on the Piste”. A long and thoughtful walk down memory lane, perhaps.

Once again, the gallery team were fabulous hosts. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
