Tammy Gilbert tackles Parkinson’s with inspiring art exhibition
In partnership with Business Environment, Tammy Gilbert’s debut exhibition in support of charity Parkinson’s UK launches with a private view at The Arts Depot in North Finchley on 1st July.
Gilbert, who suffers from Parkinson’s herself, draws her inspiration from everyday life to create beautiful watercolours that depict images as diverse as a ballerina from a stage show to a busy market scene. The pieces demonstrate Gilbert’s incredible talent and determination to continue to broaden her creative range despite living with Parkinson’s and the challenges the disease creates around things like drawing a straight line.
Commenting on her first solo exhibition, Tammy Gilbert says: “I am incredibly excited to be showcasing my work and hope that visitors will take as much pleasure in the paintings as I take in creating them. Parkinson’s UK is a charity very close to my heart and 20 per cent of all sales will be donated to the charity so it can continue to do its fantastic work in supporting people living with Parkinson’s. I am also grateful to my sponsor Business Environment, who has supported me in making my dream to exhibit a reality.”
David Saul, Managing Director at Business Environment adds: “Parkinson’s UK is one of our principal charities and we are delighted to be supporting Tammy with her debut exhibition. Her work is testament to her creative flair and ability to overcome the enormous challenges that come with Parkinson’s disease.”
Tammy Gilbert has been painting for over 12 years and is a student of The Hampstead Institute of Art. Her career has been varied starting out as a make-up artist working with members of the royal family and including time as a designer of her own fashion label.
Tammy Gilbert’s exhibition runs until 31st July with 20 per cent of all sales donated to Parkinson’s UK. For more information visit: www.tammygilbert.co.uk.
