Cally's aerial view pen and ink drawings are simply delectable - and utterly perfect.


It's mesmerising to look into them and pick out the amazing detail, clever perspective and beautiful narrative touches. One would never tire of looking at these.


This pair have the added charm of being based on memories of her childhood home and her family, with her father mowing the grass and the happy scenes of family life in the back garden.




    Cally is a versatile, innovative and prolific artist, working in a range of formats. She is wonderful at inventing an artistic concept and then exploring it through a variety of lenses and media.


    We were privileged, last year, to be showing her latest Metamorphosis series: very powerful and fascinating drawings of hands and feet from which feathers are sprouting. Humans metamorphosing into birds. She spoke fluently and colourfully about them in the gallery during the summer. The fascinating pieces held "the promise of flight, freedom, an escape to the air; but there is the horrendous loss of human identity and the inevitable separation from all the people that you love.”


    The aerial garden series we are showing this year is focused, instead, on nostalgia, home life and childhood, pattern and plenty. They are prime examples of how Cally works her way through a concept to transform it into many forms and moods.


    What remains constant is her ingenious and inventive imagination and her remarkable ability to capture detail and deal with an aerial viewpoint. 


    Cally’s work includes finshed board games (which she designs fron concept through to finished playing games, with pieces and rules), short films, books and drawings. She is based in Buckinghamshire.
