About Maxine Ellis
I have lived in St Albans for 23 years and I am the proud mum of my son Ellis.
I have always loved art and would doodle on any surface at hand. I delved a bit deeper after attending some sessions for wellbeing, run by artist Vijay Panchal, at our M.E Support group. The experience reignited my love for art. I then went on to do an Arts on Prescription course and work with H’arts in mind- experiencing in both, the amazing creative benefits for mental health and wellbeing.
Meet me!
I have recently started Spread Love Project UK, which you can find on Instagram @spreadloveprojectuk
The words and an idea have been with me for a while and whilst recovering from eye surgery, I thought I would see if I could get something started. It’s about being creative with positive words or images, taking them with you and spreading some love for someone else to find.
You are most welcome to join me in the Spotlight Café on selected dates throughout September to learn about my work, paint some stones with uplifting messages and enjoy a chat!
Fridays 15th, 22nd and 29th
Saturdays 9th, 16th, 23rd and 30th
Drop-in between 1 pm – 3 pm. I look forward to meeting you!
Entry is free and the exhibition is open during Spotlight Café opening hours. For enquiries about the exhibition space at Trestle, please contact our Gallery Programmer Elaine Johnson at gallery@trestle.org.uk | 01727 850950
