Originally from Hampshire, now living in Oxford. Zoe has always been a creative individual, drawing and painting from a young age but never thought she would become an 'Artist'.

Andy’s digital artworks, inspired by his own photographs, range in style from impressionistic to photo realistic, consisting of intricate mosaics of individually hand drawn triangles using a stylus and tablet; each one painstakingly placed, shaped and meticulously coloured. They are only available as strictly Limited Edition giclee prints on archival quality paper.
Joel is a practising artist and teacher based in Berkshire. His practice is focused on body language and the interaction of people within urban environments. Paintings are made from sketches and photographs taken on location and created out of a desire to translate an atmosphere within the painted image. Paint is used as a way to get closer to an actual experience of a place, a vehicle for transferring emotions that a photograph might not give you.

I have always drawn (I worked in engineering design) but after a serious illness in 2012 I decided to put some effort into creative drawing. I draw Edward Hopper influenced realist pictures. I have won some prizes here and there and had a picture in the RA Summer Exhibition.
My work is a contemporary reworking of traditional sculptural art, which includes the human figure, horses and skulls. Within this there are themed series inspired by life experiences, social and cultural trends or a single painting that has triggered my imagination.
