Campden Home Nursing teams up with local artist

Waiting for the Others, by Andy Furgusson

We are delighted to be working with talented local artist Andy Fergusson who, over the coming weeks, will be painting a portrait of Jecca Brook, founder of Campden Home Nursing.

The painting will mark our 30th anniversary and will hang in pride of place at our office HQ in Chipping Campden.

Andy was born in Birmingham in 1963 and has painted from an early age.  He studied Graphics at Bournville Art College and has exhibited throughout Birmingham, the Cotswolds and Tokyo. He is an Associate member of The Royal Birmingham Society of Artists and has won numerous prizes over the years.

Andy moved to Moreton-in-Marsh ten years ago, and has maintained his interest in painting on an amateur basis,  concentrating on local scenes, and the wonderful artchitecture in and around the Cotswolds.  All of Andy’s paintings are originals and mostly acrylics. He works mainly from photographs and enjoys bringing fine detail, clarity and vibrant colours to his work.

Helen Makaritis, General Manager of Campden Home Nursing said: “We love Andy’s work and we’re so excited about this painting of Jecca – it will be a fine tribute to an inspiring and much loved lady.  Andy has kindly agreed to donate it to Campden Home Nursing and we are so grateful for this generous offer.”

Andy said: “I love capturing the beauty of the Cotswolds and surrounding area. Lately, my work has progressed to more figurative paintings – from small intricate paintings to larger canvases, whilst to maintaining the detail that I enjoy capturing. So, this is an ideal project for me to get my teeth into. I’m really looking forward to painting Jecca and capturing her essence on canvas.”
