Our Current Exhibition

MILESTONE

By Jayne Brotherton (Brothy)

I was born and raised in Nelson along with my 3 sisters and one brother. Practicality rather than art were the order of the day, although this didn’t stop me from demonstrating a talent for all things artistic from a very early age.

My family always encouraged me but when it came to working, earning a living won the day. However, I did gravitate to jobs with an artistic leaning – hairdressing, decorating and interior design. Over the years I gained qualifications in art and design, which led to winning an award for decorative furniture and producing an art exhibition for Children in Need.

I am very fortunate that my son has inherited my artistic talent and has collaborated with me to produce some of the pieces in this collection.

Approaching one of life’s milestones was the catalyst to make me want to put my money where my mouth is and start to think of art as a career. With this in mind Cherry Blossom Art House was born – an online art gallery mostly showcasing mine and my son’s work. Cherry Blossoms were my late mum’s favourite trees and I wanted her to be part of this new venture. As a family we decided that the business would be called Cherry Blossom Art House in memory of her.

I hope you agree this exhibition highlights a passion for exciting modern pieces, with a healthy dose of nostalgia thrown in. To view more art work, go to www.cherryblossom-art.co.uk and keep up to date with the exciting news of our gallery opening soon!

If you would like to apply to show your work in the Gallery please send some information and images of your work to Rachel Hawthorn at rhawthorn@burnleyleisure.co.uk
