AN artist is staging an exhibition of her pictures at her home in a village outside Taunton.

Gaye Fox, aged 92, is showing 64 of her works at the free entry event in Kingston St Mary this weekend.

Visitors will be able to buy the paintings, with the proceeds going to the United24, a Ukrainian government-run platform raising money for Ukraine in the war with Russia.

The exhibition takes place on Saturday and Sunday (November 11 and 12) between 12noon until 6pm.

Mrs Fox said: "I can't wait.

"It's all up in my house and is only on the ground floor.

"I've had lot of exhibitions to raise funds for various causes every three or four years since I was about 50."

She has been interested in art since she was a little girl, spent time at the Government School of Art in India, where her late husband Professor Wallace Fox was working to find a cure for tuberculosis, and in the 1970s made hundreds of puppets for the children's TV series Ragtime.

"I've taken things from my masses of sketch books I've created over the years and done some new pictures for the exhibition - five or six are to do with the war in Ukraine," said Mrs Fox.

"I'm a Londoner, but I've spent 18 years in Kingston St Mary and I've never been so happy in my whole life."
