Dear Ellie,
Your work really struck a cord with me, as we share similar interests re subject matter, symbolism and mood. Do you have a website? I am a painter and art historian, and I am looking for artists in the UK with a view to putting together an exhibition proposal. I am setting up my website in the next couple of weeks. Kind regards, Angela Summerfield
