Abbeys and Landscapes

These are the naked skeletons of the monasteries - moody, melancholy and magnificent. Survivors of war, plague and dissolution. Stripped and demolished, battered and bruised - but not destroyed, triumphant in their own beauty. Captivated by their history and survival, Joy paints what she feels not what she sees, finding each abbey truly inspirational in its own way.
