The work in this Exhibition, on display in The Window, has been produced by prisoners serving sentences for various offences.

I spent many fulfilling years teaching art in prisons and could appreciate first hand the transforming and beneficial influence of Art within this setting.

My hope and intention in exhibiting this work is not only to promote art as a means of escape for those trapped behind locked doors, but also open those same doors to many of us who would rarely get the chance to see this hidden thread of talent and appreciate its potential value within society.
