Art In The Office



MRA is not only passionate about Design, but about Art too. Therefore we are dedicating key wall space within our office to exhibiting selected works from local artists. If you would like to display your work at MRA, then please contact us for further details. Currently on show to our visitors (and our staff!) are the beautiful oil paintings of Crystal Palace artist Pat Keay. Following her graduation from the Edinburgh College of Art in 1971 and a prolific 15 year period working and exhibiting as an artist in Scotland, Patricia moved to Kenya where she continued to exhibit and taught art for nearly two decades. There she held a series of solo exhibitions, including shows at the British Council and the Rahimtulla Museum of Modern Art. This enriching experience profoundly influenced her fascination with light and shade, forcing her to consider ways of creating mood, atmosphere and a ‘sense of place’ on the picture plane. This challenge is a central and continuing theme in her work. Now back in UK and working in both London and Scotland, her visions are altered by London’s urban ambience, the dizzy city views of her studio, and contrasting place-scapes in Scotland. Trees remain an essential visual ingredient, as do patterns in still life and unusual composition in all genres. If you are interested in the work of Pat Keay then please visit
