An exhibition of new work at her home studio.
Paintings drawn from quiet familiar spaces and portrayed on sometimes very large surfaces.
Still light on the kitchen table, a secluded London vegetable plot and a tranquil back garden keeps Duke freely inspired.

Diamond Jive Club is a community of dancers from South London dedicated to bringing back to life the Jive /Rock'n'Roll clubs of South London in the fifties.
The club was formed in the popular local drinking hole the Railway Tavern, Tulse Hill in 2009. Here we started running jive classes and clubs to promote the retro scene and partner dancing and to build community. Since this time the club has grown and we have run clubs in Tulse Hill, Brixton, Borough and taught locally in Brixton, Herne Hill, Tulse Hill, West Norwood and as far afield as Dublin and Liverpool to name a few.
