Richard Popplewell
‘During my time living in the L’Arche community I found art a wonderful medium of communication and personal growth. After  a period of time as an art student ( in my 60s!!) I began to see it as an expression of spiritual identity and exploration both individually and communally. I want to encourage you to experience this too.’
John Turner
‘I have recently discovered painting after years of longing to dabble in visual art. Mostly self-taught, I am interested in the interaction, relationship and response of people who ‘look at and see’ the images themselves. I particularly like painting water, seascapes and sky. There is still a long way to journey, and being a novice gives me an excuse to try new techniques and approaches’.
