We are delighted to announce that Haidee-Jo Summers has joined us as a Festival Ambassador!

Haidee-Jo is a full-time professional artist known for painting landscapes and seascapes ‘en plein air’.

Vice President of the Royal Institute of Oil painters (ROI) and full member of the Royal Society of Marine Artists (RSMA) her work can be seen each year at the Mall Galleries in London in these prestigious society exhibitions. Haidee-Jo is an editorial consultant for The Artist magazine and author of two books on oil painting with Search Press, ‘Vibrant Oils’ and ‘Plein air painting in oils’.

Although oils are very much her preferred medium, Haidee-Jo also produced a large body of work for the Encyclopaedia of Watercolour Techniques and is an avid sketcher. In recent years she has been invited to judge UK and international plein air events, after winning many prizes for her work which features fresh and vibrant brushwork coupled with keen drawing and observational skills.

“The Broadway arts festival is a very special event celebrating the unique artistic legacy of Broadway while inspiring, educating and enriching the lives of so many today. What could be nicer than staying for the whole festival, joining in with arts workshops, watching theatre and music performances, listening to the expertise of an array of interesting speakers, buying unique gifts to take home and enjoying garden tours amongst this beautiful Cotswolds village and landscape. I’m delighted to have been invited to be further involved with the festival as an ambassador and look forward to helping in any way I can.”
