|About The Drawingroom
The Drawingroom once housed over 400 original works of Fineart, however music has become the dominant driving part of my passion, so there are now perhaps only 200 works of art at any one time. The Drawingroom is housed in a 16th century building in Chesham , and haunted by a kindly female presence; she has watched over this home for years over 80 years that I know of. For a while some purring ghost cats rested on my bed, eight at one time, but it seems they have now moved on. Someone conducted a cleansing, without my knowledge or consent; it would have been polite to ask! The building was initially constructed circa 1550 of oak, plaster and lath and has been added to in subsequent years. Some of the oak was probably from Spanish ship's timbers; this means some of the beams, are from trees now 1000 years old. For a majority of it's history, the building was a peasant dwelling and ale house, with a stable at the East Street end of the building where the kitchen is now located. It is also thought to have been the home to Lewis Carrol's 'Mad Hatter' Roger Crab, the 'Mad Hatter' of Chesham. Over the previous 30 years it has been an office and barber shop. As for the I have selected the works from living Artists, who reside in the UK and who demonstrate their ability to capture and celebrate beauty through their use of light, form, composition and above all, skill. The Drawingroom is also my home, whence it takes it's name; if you were here right now, you would be in my home, my sitting room, livingroom, My Drawingroom...and you'd be most welcome.
