An art exhibition aimed at conveying the memories of childhood has opened at the Radlett Centre.
The paintings have all been put together by Radlett artist, Ayse McGowan.
Ayse has been painting all of her life but has taken it much more seriously in the past two years. The exhibition will be open until the end of January.
Ayse said: ‘’My work has been in exhibitions before and the feedback was really good so it motivated me to do a solo one.
‘’I have another exhibition opening in March, which will be in Camden so I am really looking forward to that.
‘’This is my first solo exhibition and the response has been really good. Since it’s opened it has been very busy. A lot of people have been coming through the door and we have had a few sales.’’
Having a young family has been at the core of her work as she has built the exhibition around capturing the moments of her children growing up.
She said: ‘’Having a young family, just watching your children play and explore is an amazing thing. As a parent I take loads of pictures as they are growing up and my work at the exhibition is my way of capturing that.’’
