Earl Mountbatten Hospice LogoThe Earl Mountbatten Hospice has announced its latest Art Gallery exhibition entitled ‘Island Flight’ – a joint display by 2 artists, Anne Axford and Malcolm Winter, and photographer Kelly Murdoch.

Malcolm Winter is a talented artist who specialises in marine and aviation subjects, as well as coastal scenes. Among the subjects he paints are Spitfires and wartime action and his eye for detail has resulted in him being honoured as an Associate of the Guild of Aviation Artists.

Anne, who is also a Trustee at the hospice, said:

“I paint mainly in watercolour, but also find working with gold leaf intriguing and interesting. Animals are often the subject of my pictures and I aim to make people smile with an often surprising twist on what I see.”

Completing the trio is Kelly Murdoch of Ztam Photography, whose passion is aviation photography. Kelly is fully self-taught and she shares her father’s passion for photography. Her work has led to worldwide interest and publication of her work in newspapers and magazines. Kelly’s remarkable skills are despite a battle with several rare health conditions, as well as Spina Bifida.

She said:

“Some days I can’t even get out of bed, some days are harder than others but while each day comes and goes, I am grateful for everything I have in life including my photography, art and design. While I can carry on I will, but sadly there will be a day when I won’t. Until that day, I will search for ways to carry on and I will still capture those precious moments in time.”

Anyone is welcome to visit the ‘Island Flight’ exhibition, which is located in the main hospice building and can be viewed between 09:00 and 17:00. There is also an opportunity to meet the artists at 17:00 on Wednesday 16th November.
