Artist in Residence – Jane Williams

Since 1989 Jane has been fascinated by small groups of musicians performing. She spent a weekend drawing at the Barbican as different groups of musicians played all the Haydn string quartets; by the end of the weekend she was hooked and has been exploring the subject ever since through drawing, painting and collage using a variety of media.

In 2004 Raphael Wallfisch performed all of J. S. Bach’s Cello Suites one evening in St Mary’s, Warwick, as he did again on 28 October this year in the same venue. The inspiring evening gave Jane the idea for ‘Raphael Filling the World with Bach‘ and this painting was made into a card for the 2017/18 Winter Season.

A special request was made for a Christmas card with a musical theme this year too, so Jane has created a painting from a performance by She’Koyokh. Both of these cards, and many others, are available to buy at the Friends table at every Leamington Music concert and the proceeds of all card sales go towards the Leamington Music Education Programme.

Do visit Jane’s website and follow her blog; you can see some of Jane’s artwork at the concerts and her book ‘A Musical Journey in Paint‘ is now available on Amazon.
