My sculptures are conceived as 'seen' by me, as shapes, textures and colours and the arrangements of these elements in a three-dimensional form. they are inspired by my African origin, personal journeys, observations of daily life and the colours and textures of nature. When growing up I would sit for hours staring at cracks in the walls and forming images. These things bring up thoughts and experiences that challenge and guide me through my creative processes.

I create detailed pictures by hand-cutting card and combining fabrics for colour and contrast. From a distance, it's not obvious how the pictures are constructed but as you get closer you will start to notice the intricate detailed cuts contrasting with the varied fabrics textures.
I create unusual images of horses, water and natural subjects. Limited Edition prints - which give you exclusivity. Acrylic images - a luscious modern take on art. Silk prints - a luxury silk scarf - the quickest way to go from an ordinary look to somewhat more sophisticated.
Donna paints intuitively in an expressionist style using a variety of art media from acrylic, oil bars, pastel, ink and elements of collage. Colour and light are her muse. She creates work depicting abstractions of places and experiences that she carries deep within her psyche. Donna translates her experience of these places into her paintings layering colour and materials until the finished piece announces its arrival.
Lorraine (@lorribethdesigns) is a Surrey based abstract artist who uses acrylic, mixed media and macro photography to create emotional, textured pieces. Passionate about human behaviour, relationships and nature, her paintings evoke feelings of lifes undercurrents, elements and layers. She has created many commissioned works that reside privately worldwide.
Painter in oil and watercolour, concentrating on the elemental power of light and atmosphere, celebrating the sublime beauty of life itself. Frequently the initial inspiration for paintings comes simply from gazing up at a light filled canopy, the magical effect being almost that of stained glass, a cathedral canopy.
Raised in Bournemouth and moving to Brighton, I relish living at the edge of the land. Being a swimwear print designer I find exuberant palettes, tropical flora, palms and the sea appear often in my semi abstract work. I love to explore the qualities of acrylic paints with my mixed media pieces.
Award winning, international artist Michelle Lucking uses her fingers to paint with soft pastel and capture stunning seascapes and underwater swimming scenes. Her work beautifully translates light and movement onto medium and large scale paintings, making the viewer feel like they are immersed in the water.
Louise creates oil paintings inspired by nature. She combines naturalism with expressive colour to create something beautiful, quirky and a joy to look at. Louise's expressive oil paintings on natural linen demonstrate her ability to explore nature's tensions - the animal is still but it could go at any second. She captures a moment in nature for a lifetime on canvas.
