Based in West Berkshire, Cat finds her inspiration from the Berkshire Downs and from her travels to European forests and gardens. Cat paints the changing light of the seasons, attracted to strong contrasts, rich colours and natural patterns. Her intent is that every painting is the beginning of a story, a pathway or window that leads to something hidden in our imagination or memories.
Michael’s passion for creating sculptures is inspired by the simple line and movement of a subject matter – utilising the unique qualities of both wood and stone to capture it’s fundamental beauty – committing himself to the creation of an individual sculpture, rather than perfect representation.
Inspired by walking the British landscape, Sarah’s abstract paintings contrast elements of tight, structured paint work with loose, atmospheric washes and gestural marks. Colour and texture are both dominant elements. Expect to see a mixture of sweeping brush strokes, palette knife work, dripping paint, scratched back surfaces and washy pools of paint.
Caroline draws on her past experience as a textile designer searching for incidental patterns and using a limited colour palette to simplify and stylise images.

I work in oil, acrylic and mixed-media on a variety of scales and substrates, with landscape as my starting point. My work is a fusion of naturalistic and expressionist qualities. Recent pieces explore partially abstract interpretations of the visual elements. I am inspired by the changing light, forms and palette of the landscape through the seasons. I love combining colour in different ways: contrasts & harmonies, tonalities, layers and juxtapositions to convey the essence of the subject.
Oxfordshire sculptor, Dawn merges memory, wonder and joy. Each sculpture has their own narrative and emotional connection, that touch the free spirit in us, most often through memories of childhood.
Dawns work is essentially figurative and rooted in human connections, that aim to evoke the moment – the energy, the glee, our curiosity, the tenderness in our hearts.

I am a self-taught artist with my own characteristic style. I specialise in acrylic or oil on canvas and base content on many situations including everyday life, extensive travel and memory. All of my work is original. My paintings are not photographic but attempt to represent accurate depictions of the subject and the ambience of the scene. Commissions are also available.
Kate’s work features elements of the landscape and ruined castles. Her expressive colourist work along withe her enjoyment in the process of layering paint and glazes, results in rich colour and texture. Her aim is for the viewer to be able to sense the underlying passion, joy and vitality.
Michael’s aim is to capture the essence of a distant view, capturing light interacting with the landscape. Michael likes to work from memory, giving him more freedom and expression and the ability to use bold open brush strokes alongside palette knife mark making, achieving rich textured paintings and creating more energy and emotion.
Kasia Clarke paints intuitive and emotive abstract landscapes, rich in colour and texture. Free and energetic mark-making contrasts with a soulful depth; these are captivating paintings that offer a hint of a recognisable landscape but with an intriguing ambiguity leaving them fully open to interpretation.
