ArtMuseLondon is a site for reviews of art exhibitions, music, opera and dance written by people with a keen interest and an intelligent, honest and accessible approach.

We cover exhibitions, concerts, opera and chamber music, together with general cultural musings. We are selective about what we see and hear and we don’t “review everything”. Instead, we choose to write about the exhibitions and music which interest us personally.

If you would like ArtMuse to review one of your events or exhibitions, or would like to submit a guest post, please feel free to contact us via the Contact page.

Who we are

When she is not writing about music, she likes to sing in her local choir or tackle piano sonatas, some of which are far too difficult for her.
