ART FIX: Seashell art pays tribute to essential workers


A local painter has created a series of delicately painted seashells celebrating key workers to raise money for a charity supporting islanders with brain tumours and their families.

Every Friday, Express is presenting a selection of online exhibitions, performances and other historic and creative content to help islanders continue getting their weekly dose of culture throughout the pandemic.

Here is this week's offering...

She paints seashells by the seashore...

Local artist Lishu Denton, known for painting intricate scenes and portraits on stones, wood and glass, has created a series of seashells featuring key workers

Each features a character, from doctors and nurses, to cleaners, shop assistants, posties, farmers and police officers.

She has been selling the shells one by one to raise funds for the Jersey Brain Tumour Charity.

A lesson in beach art

If you plan on heading to the beach this weekend, why not collect some driftwood, pieces of rope, sea glass and shells?

You can then follow this handy guide from the National Trust Jersey to create your own piece of beach art. 

A new mural for Centre Point Trust

Three islanders have recently volunteered to bring some colour to the Centre Point Trust mural. 

“They are really bringing some lovely colour and detail to our outside fencing,” the team at the play care centre and nursery said. 

And for some music…

Having recently returned from travelling South America with her boyfriend, local singer Annie Law is keen to launch back into performing and songwriting. 

Drawing influences from a varied range of genres, she is particularly fascinated by unique styles of lyric writing.  

Annie wrote ‘Fate’ a couple of years ago, but it has only just surfaced on ArtHouse Jersey Presents
