My current series of works is inspired by the tropical fish we keep, my love of colour, inks, of printmaking and sometimes mixing them all up together. The methods I employ to produce these 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.
Art has always played a big part in my life. I am partially self taught but also had the opportunity to study with the Award Winning Realist Artist Gary J. Hernandez in Huston, TX. This experience took my art skills to higher levels and my passion for painting has flourished ever since.
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.
Sara loves to paint and shares that joy in her art. Working in oils she produces both abstract contemporary art as well as cityscapes and skylines. She captures a sense of freedom: her signature style is in her sweeping dramatic skies. Her use of colour is truly unique. Tiny details of birds, flowers and figures are hidden in the work. She also hides special dates such as birthdays and anniversaries in the texture of the paint. Her latest collection is inspired by scripture as well as her own creative writing. Sara has completed hundreds of orders over the last 15 years and the answer is yes to any creative challenge and she welcomes commissions.
With a background in graphic design, Sarah's art has an orderly feel. She adores pattern and looking at things from a different perspective. Her work has a repetitive nature and evolves from a simple idea or theme that is then reproduced into small individual images that are grouped together creating a final piece of work.
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.
People and their environments are inspirational for Alan. He responds to his life events and the emergent outcomes may be figurative or abstracted. His paintings and sculpture often share a common starting point relating to the human form. Working from his Wimbledon studio, he exhibits in London and the regions.
Anthony O'Keefe has been a professional artist for over thirty years starting with portraiture then expanding to equine subjects. He has now expanded his range to include abstracts, landscapes and seascapes and paintings that can be displayed in the garden.
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.
Swati's style involves bold and bright colours and she loves using different textures to achieve bold and vibrant effects. Complimentary colours are often seen in her work. She is a firm believer in spreading joy & happiness through her work, so while they may prompt some deep thoughts from viewers, they have a very happy and positive vibe to them.
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.
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.
'Autumn Walk' painting was selected by IKEA stores to be sold worldwide as a limited print.
J Suyi's creations stem from her emotions, instincts, culture, environment and a quest to explore deeper philosphical questions about humanity and existence. She intuitively improvises with mixed materials, bright colours and metallic pigments, creating textured audacious abstracts, ranging from small to large scale works using expressive strokes and different markings.
