What is the aim and what do I get out of it?

A time to relax, have time out and immerse yourself in creativity. The aim is to promote happiness and wellbeing by engaging in the art making experience in a small group. 

Painting, drawing, mixed media and words are explored to open up curiosity and imagination. 

Suitable for all ages and no prior art experience necessary.


Sharing and experiencing the arts as part of a group benefits on a different level to doing something alone.  

The medical profession is starting to recognise the health benefits of getting together and engaging with the arts as a social experience.  Whether it's painting in a group, going to a movie, a gig, or joining a choir, the social aspect is essential for us thrive as human beings.   

We offer Art Club Sessions in the Studio or on Zoom.  We also offer individual Therapeutic sessions for Adults or Teens or dyads for Parents and Children



We promote our stable of gallery artists, exhibiting at art fairs worldwide and bring art to view in situ via our bespoke art consultancy service. We advise on choosing the best art for your space, to suit any budget, carefully sourced from our own artists and from other galleries.  We also have an art hanging team, offering a complete art service.

We aim to make art-buying fun!

Mixed Media

The pleasure of drawing, flashes of enlightenments and half forgotten memories find a meeting point in these images.

I choose to photograph the work that exemplifies the calm before the storm. By reflecting upon the work, the viewer can disassociate them self with life distractions and join in the calmness of nature.

Oil on canvas

Space, time, Illusion, colour and light. These paintings attempt to explore and nurture the mystery and poetry of paint, its infinity and its narrative.

Every painting reflects a tiny fragment of life, of memory and emotion, both spiritually and physically.  Kay’s challenge is to unlock emotions and transform them into bold, geometric, colourful constructions, without losing their emotional charge.


Ink on paper

Origami Art

Origami is known to symbolise peace, love and longevity; butterflies symbolise hope. Legend states that the person who folds one thousand origami cranes will be granted their wish.


I launched Art Movement in 1995 as an art consultancy and dining club, representing and exhibiting around 80 contemporary artists in the UK and around the world.  I then ran the gallery for 5 years and now continue to represent our core 5 leading artists. 

Following two years art therapy training,  (Advanced Diploma in the Therapeutic and Educational Application of the Applied Arts, Certificate in Counselling Skills and Certificate in Parents & Children at IATE, The Institute for Arts in Therapy and Education), I have created, and personally deliver, Art for Life sessions using visual arts, both as a language and to express emotion.

I continually and consciously adapt to suit the climate and believe that this type of exploration, Art for Life, seems more relevant now than ever.
