CAFE Arts is blessed to be able to collaborate with a number of very talented artists of all disciplines, many of whom generously give up their time to help out doing the “unfashionable” behind-the-scenes work that is involved in running an arts forum.
One such artist is the multi-talented Christelle Jones, who has been involved in a number of our events and will be a familiar face to those of you who have attended a CAFE Arts soiree. Primarily a portrait and figurative painter, Christelle studied Art at Margaret Street in 1989 and enjoys drawing people of all ages, backgrounds and cultures. You may even have had a caricature drawn by her at our most recent Evening of Creativity at Oikos!
However, Christelle’s talents extend far beyond her artistic prowess, and she is also a writer, photographer and occasional stand-up comedian. She has lived in Erdington for the past two years, and we are very grateful for her involvement with the arts forum. Christelle is interested in running portrait and painting workshops, so if that sounds like something you’d enjoy, please do get in contact and we can make it happen.
Look out for a new ‘artist of the week’ feature every Monday evening, and believe me when I say that there really is an abundance of talent in Erdington for us to showcase!
