Last year I worked with Beach London to make four original paintings for The Three Fishes Pub. Local produce is central to their menu and they wanted to fill the pub with art on this subject. Rose Blake and Kerry Hyndman also made pieces. I love drawing animals and these four had particularly great characters to work with. It's really fantastic to be part of the concept for the pub's new design. I also like the somewhat macabre humour of exhibiting them in a place where they are being eaten!
"The Three Fishes is situated in the tiny picturesque hamlet of Mitton in the rural haven of the Ribble Valley. As the flagship and first born to Ribble Valley Inns, this country pub in Lancashire has become a legend in these parts. Menus inspired by Nigel Haworth using only the freshest ingredients harvested by our local food heroes. Enjoy regional Cask Ales and an award winning wine list specially chosen by leading wine expert, Craig Bancroft. All of this in a wonderfully relaxing environment for eating out - with al fresco dining in the summer and crackling logs fires in the winter"
