My current series of works is inspired by the tropical fish we keep, my love of colour and of printmaking; Sometimes mixing them up together. The methods I employ to produce these varied and many layered works, is as fluid and interesting as the fish we look after.
Christine selects unusual cuts and colours of precious and semi-precious stones, combined with silver and various colours of gold, she builds layers of texture and colour. Her stylised jewellery designs beautifully and comfortably remind one of their inspirations, from magnificent landscapes to the fascinating shapes and textures of insects.
Nagihan Seymour is a Surrey based artist. She specialises in “Tezhip” illumination. Tezhip is the art of illumination and is traditionally used for the decoration of calligraphy, although in her paintings she uses it as a standalone art form. The paintings incorporate symmetrical designs consisting of naturalistic floral ornamentation or patterns with simple expression.
Watercolour offers the opportunity to explore and capture light and atmosphere. I strive to find a narrative within an ordinary subject to draw the viewer in. My practice has increased with awards from Bankside and The Mall Galleries in London along with RWA Bristol in recent years.
My work has the overall sense of painting, but it is skilfully built up using layers of found papers, tissue and acrylic paint. I see the beauty in simple scraps, ripped edges, accidental marks and worn surfaces. I take my inspiration from foreign lands, harbours and urban docklands.
After training at Wimbledon School of Art, Dorothy Stapleton established an international reputation as a textile artist. More recently, she has concentrated on paperbased media and her work on display will include collages, linocuts, wood engravings and paper-marbling pieces, all demonstrating her highly individual and sometimes quirky approach.
Erica works in polymer clay and acrylics to create figurative, three-dimensional scenes. Inspirations are firmly rooted in the simple pleasures of everyday life - the joy is in creating a painting that celebrates the familiar in a new and exciting way.
The work produced by Georgia aims to mimic the natural movements of the environment around us. With a passion for interior design, the pieces aim to enhance a room by bringing together all of the different shades and tones. She likes to describe the works as 'Aesthetic Art'.
Landscapes portrayed in a fluid and honest style, capturing the beauty of nature, harnessing the changing seasons and manipulating the land so it becomes expressive and recognisable throughout. Travelling locally and further afield, the land has been Amy's lessons in art. Through her paintings its always 'Sunny Outside'.
Award winning artist Serena Sussex has a passion for creating soft, subtle, atmospheric paintings onto canvas that reveal the wonders of nature inspired by many walks in the countryside. She has painted twice for the BBC - 'The Big Event' in Trafalgar Square and the Diamond Jubilee 2012.
