Banbury artist Ella Hendy is encouraging visitors to take part in her interactive exhibition on show at Naomi’s Cafe as part of Artweeks.

The exhibition opened on Saturday at the Bridge Street cafe and allows members of the public to add to one of her paintings.

Ella said: “My Artweeks exhibition is inspired by a precious childhood memory, when I was given free-rein to draw on the walls when the house was being decorated.

“I have always loved painting and drawing so to be given the freedom to get creative on such a grand scale was an absolute dream for me.”

Naomi Perkins was the first to add to the painting. She said: “I love Ella’s idea for Artweeks. It is fresh and original and putting paint to canvas was actually rather therapeutic.”

The exhibition runs until May 30.
