●● AN artist known for depicting the heavens with her star constellation paintings is heading to New Mills to exhibit her work.
Zoe Watson will display her paintings at the New Mills Arts Festival between September 11 and 27.
Popstar Toyah Wilcox will be opening the event which is expecting up to 8,000 visitors.
Zoe, from Poynton, will be showing her paintings at Braulio Ramos Language Services.
She said: “I have been lucky enough to exhibit at some wonderful galleries over the years, including being invited to exhibit at Art Monaco 2015. I am lucky to sell my work – but in honesty, I paint because I love it, it’s who I am as a person, everything else is a bonus. All my paintings are painted with passion, and given with love.”
