“The Sunshine In You”
“The Sunshine In You” is a beautiful limited edition print that artist Gem Rey has made inspired by the four stories that she wrote during lockdown 2020 titled “At The Beach House”. There are only 20 prints being released. Each one is signed, numbered and comes with a fine art certificate of authenticity. The print and stories are inspired by her sunshine yellow 1973 VW Beetle named Orbie, and the love and friendship she shared with her Grandmother. This story is dedicated in loving memory to her 96 year old Grandmother who passed away in January 2020 after a sudden 3 month diagnosis of cancer. Viola Jean Norman had lived in Amersham, Buckinghamshire for much of her elderly life and was a much loved member of the community. The quote featured in the print is from the first of the stories written in the Spring. Gem Rey went on to write Summer, Autumn and the final “Winter” was released on Christmas Day 2020. The stories have been released on the YouTube Channel “Rockumentary TV” and have brought a wonderful escape of calm to those who have found it. We hope that this art piece will bring you joy, always.

About The Stories
“At The Beach House” is a captivating series of visual narratives. These four delightful 25 – 30 minute stories are about a little girl named Aria who lives “At The Beach House”. A calming space created for this challenging time. One quiet day in the sunshine in March, the camellia started to bloom. The country all in lockdown. Captivated by the welcome arrival of Spring, Gem Rey picked up her pencil and paper and the story came to life. The music accompanying the story is by “High Frequency Bandwidth” ~ Dom Beken (Saucerful of Secrets) & LX Paterson (The Orb).
“It was September 2019 when my Grandmother became unwell and we then found out she had cancer with an estimated three months to live. I stopped everything and moved in with her. She needed night care so this led to an enormous amount of sleepless nights. I found the best way to keep myself occupied through the stress and tiredness at night was to start creating artistic visuals. It was only a matter of days after my Grandmother’s thanksgiving at the end of February / start of March that we went into lockdown. The times we spent together were an immense privilege. She was wonderful. I didn’t realise at the time when caring for my Grandmother and I had started creating these visuals that they would end up evolving to become “At The Beach House”. I continued to create some more once the story had arrived and it became what it is today. I hope this will be some sunshine for us all.” ~ Gem Rey
“The little yellow car named Orbie is like sunshine to me, so I hope he is for you too. Whatever the weather, it is always a sunny day “At The Beach House”. ~ Gem Rey
Stay safe everyone and Merry Christmas.
