Local artist Maribel Matthews is currently exhibiting some of her environmentally conscious works at a collective exhibition at the Coningsby Gallery in London.

Her current work is in an expressionist style and sets out to raise awareness about the environment.

The paintings convey her message on how environmental excesses impact on our planet’s weather and climate.

At the exhibition Ms Matthews met the curator Chantal Lora who invited her to take part in a similar exhibition in June.

“I met many interesting artists and told them all about Gibraltar.”

She added she was “very happy and satisfied” with the outcome.
