Eammon Sully worked as a plasterer for 30 years, but has always had an aptitude for art.

He has just graduated from Weston College with a degree in contemporary art, and will start a masters and teaching degree there next year.

He said: “I attempt to paint my culture; the people and places which have influenced and shaped my life form the basis for my work.

“Family, friends, familiar surroundings and personal objects all come together in bright, vibrant colour to help document who I am.”

Eammon’s work, mostly using oil paints, has already been shown in galleries in Taunton, Bristol and Bath.

His work will be shown at the LT Gallery, in Orchard Street tomorrow (Thursday) until September 5.

The gallery is open on Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 10am-4pm and Thursdays from noon to 7pm or by appointment.
