From now until September 25, the Courtyard Gallery of Lyme Regis’s Town Mill will be buzzing with artistic activity as artist Carolyn King launches her latest works and a new children’s book called About a Bee.

About a Bee by Carolyn King.About a Bee by Carolyn King.

Born in Cheshire and now living in Seaton with her artist partner, her formative years were spent in Cornwall and Paris with sea, town and country inspiring her whimsical and timeless paintings of the ‘human condition’.

Her work has been exhibited at the Royal Academy’s Summer Exhibition, at RWA Selected Painters and at the Mall Galleries.

Though trained in fine Art, from the start Carolyn loved writing and storytelling.

About a Bee is her third book and like the ever-popular Fish Lizard of Lyme and Along Came a Seagull, About a Bee is a delightful mix of fact and fun!

As a challenge Carolyn also learnt to knit, and both knitted and felt bees will be on sale for charity throughout the exhibition.

Visitors to the show are welcome to add to this collection, and spare wool and needles will be on hand!

Carolyn will also present recent work that brings together her preferred mediums of egg tempera, oil and beeswax, all traditional materials still in use by artists today.

Bee Inspired will be open daily from 10am until 5pm, admission is free and more details can be found on www.townmillarts.co.uk
