Since 1973, artists across Chiswick, Hammersmith and Shepherds Bush have been welcoming the public into their houses, studios and flats, to view paintings, glass-making, ceramics, printmaking, sculpture, photographs, textiles, and jewellery – through the cherished Artists at Home open studios event.
Leonora Trafford is a painter based in Acton Vale, she is heavily inspired by the natural world and is exhibiting her art this year.
Speaking about her work, Leonora said:
“I tend to take my inspiration from the natural world and I work predominantly on paper exploring with line, marks and composition. I have been creating collage pieces incorporating hand painted paper, stencils, rubbings and monoprints, I like the rawness and immediacy that these simple techniques allow.
“For this exhibition I will be showing new paintings & collages alongside drawings plus there will be postcards and cards to buy. And we plan to have a kids corner with works by a young artist”.

From 2020, Artists at Home have also been welcoming visitors all year round – online. On their website you can browse artists’ work, make enquiries and save your favourites. If you wish to purchase something you can do this directly with the artist through via an enquiry form.
Leonora’s art is comprised largely of figurative & semi-abstract paintings and collages. She is located in Studio 35 – 111 Valetta Road, W3 7TB.
