Work by two artists and a photographer went on show at PS Arts Gallery in Datchworth on Saturday with all proceeds from the exhibition going to Welwyn GC-based Isabel Hospice.

Self-taught artist Paul Ambler, who has lived in Stevenage since the 1960s, will be showcasing large acrylic paintings on canvas, which he makes and stretches himself.

He will also show drawings using pen and ink, in a ‘stippling’ style.

Popular subjects for Paul, who is also an architect, photographer and musician, include African wildlife, marine life, cityscapes, cars and planes.
