SEE WHO’S EXHIBITING AT CONTEMPORARY ART FAIRS
We have always found that art and wine are natural partners and have invited M-Wines to come along for the weekend and share their knowledge, passion and fantastic range of specially selected wines with our visitors.
M-Wines commissions talented winemakers to make their ‘dream wine’, they put their name on the label and release them in limited editions of just 1,000 numbered bottles. With every M-Wine the winemaker writes a short biography with the story behind their wine.
Este MacLeod’s paintings are informed by the real and the imaginary. Her background in textile and ceramic design is noticeable in the stylised, abundant and colourful forms used in still life, landscape and floral paintings. Although shapes are distorted and altered, there is a strong sense of the familiar. The variety of techniques Este uses to layer colour and shapes adds an ethereal element to her work.
Cherrie uses acrylics and mixed media to create bold, expressive artwork that catches the eye and fires the imagination. She says "Colour excites me, grabs my attention and fuels my creativity." Close examination of Cherrie's work reveals mesmerising contours of colour, intriguing marks and undulating textures.
Currently located in Northamptonshire, UK, Lydia McCarthy is a recent art graduate specialising in Wildlife Art and Pet Portraiture and suitably so as she has a great interest and passion for portraying the character and personality of an animal through his or her individual characteristic traits and features using the traditional mediums of oil paint and charcoal.
My interest in paint, painting and "the painting" is vast. In particular, what I find most visually and emotively satisfying to paint is endangered species. Stylistically I am interested in showing a physical confluence between the skin and form of the animal and the situated or abstracted background.
Louise McNaught completed her Fine Art Degree BSc (Hons) in 2012 at the University of Greenwich and she has continued to work as a professional artist ever since, with international representation. Her artwork has also been featured in art fairs in Milan,Hong Kong, Singapore, Stockholm, Brussels and all over the UK.
McNaught also became a published author in 2018 with her book 'Survival', created with Big Picture Press and sponsored by Tusk.org- now released in the UK and US.
Louise’s creations feature nature and animals, where the animals are God-like, sublime and ethereal in their presence and depiction. McNaught’s work is motivated by emotive and spiritual experiences which has manifested in a mixed-media approach. Her soft style suggests a delicate relationship between nature and ourselves, making a clear point about man’s destruction of nature – which flutters jewel-like in the balance.
A professional full-time artist, making art is my passion.

In oil, she chooses a colourful and vibrant palette. Many are produced by sculpting the paint. Working in pen she creates images assembled, jigsaw-like, from individual black fragments.
I am a London-based contemporary, mixed media, abstract artist. I create bold, dynamic, multi-layered and richly textured, paintings. These are mostly on cradled wooden panels. Some on paper. I am inspired by anything! Big skies, bustling cities, music, the sea, amazing colours of India and Morocco. I try to capture an emotive response to these wondrous things and more through my painting.
