I work in one of the six artists studios occupy the top floor of the Valentines Mansion, formerly the servants quarters. Artists occupying the studios exhibit their work here in the Gallery annually, and we have Open Studio events 3 times a year.

The Mansion is located in a beautiful park setting, Valentines Park, near Gants Hill in the London Borough of Redbridge. The Mansion was built around 1696-7. It is considered by English Heritage to be "of outstanding architectural or historic interest or of great importance to the nation's built heritage" and is Grade II* listed. Not a grand building, it was a family home for a gentleman of high status.

Restoration of the Mansion started in July 2007 and now features period rooms, an exhibition gallery and displays on the history of the Mansion and its estate. School children role play life 'upstairs & downstairs', using the reconstructed Victorian kitchen and dairy as part of an exciting new education programme.  A range of rooms within the Mansion are available for hire by community groups and businesses, and for parties and special events, including weddings.

The Heritage Lottery Fund and the London Borough of Redbridge have funded the restoration which was completed in February 2009.

This Summer I will be taking part in The Artwave Festival in Sussex, for more details click here.
