I am a realist oil painter concentrating on portraiture and wildlife.

Working in oils on canvas, linen and hand pressed paper to create realistic pieces that evoke the nature and spirit of the subject I am depicting.
Raskovsky's creative genius, an outstanding innovation to photographic art. A refined vision transforming photography into post-impressionistic masterpieces. Creates movement that vibrates all the nuances of a wild and rampant nature. Rich imaginative able to relieve viewers from accepted norms of photographic art and as a consequence, he opens our minds.
Colour, abstract and high gloss are my passion. A self taught artist looking to experiment with new mediums and ideas. Always pushing for new concepts to be different and a focus point of conversation. Contemporary, modern and individual is my aim.
Emma paints intuitively, letting the paint and its processes guide. Often inspired by the sea, capturing its wild ways, calm points and stunning beauty in her abstract paintings. She hopes they'll draw you in, turn you about and have you emerging with salty hair and longing for the sea.
Oil painter of land and seascapes capturing a fleeting moment never to be repeated. The paintings are not about a place, but concentrate on light, peace and freedom.

Geometric, Hard Edge, Minimalist and 3D fascinates me.

As a British-born artist living in Gloucestershire, I'm surrounded by some of the most natural and inspiring surroundings in the UK, well-placed to benefit from a huge variety of light, texture, and drama – perfect for what I do. I usually begin by sensing the subject, sometimes using a photo or a sketch to extract weather, light, horizons and shapes to commit the scene to canvas with a variety of media and paint

Sophie's artwork is a response to her sensory and emotional experiences within different landscapes. She works from these experiences and her own introspection to inspire her and her imagination. When creating her work, she wishes to communicate a sense of that particular location's space, atmosphere and the everchanging flow of the natural world.
Surrey based, Irish artist, GrainneRoche paints a variety of subject matter, from bustling street scenes, to childhood memories of days at the beach. Her work reflects her interest in landscape, using dynamic line and colour. She produces paintings that synthesise the many elements of a place. Her work is energetic, yet retains detail and clarity, using layering techniques to heavily build up a level of complexity of surface. Grainne's paintings are raw and atmospheric, she looks at things without the necessity of making sense of them and tries to paint through the subject, as to what it was that drew and attached her to it. Heavily layered acrylics produce deeply textured surfaces of broken colour. The texture looks weathered, fraught and worn, the effect dream-like and nostalgic.
The Art of Jazz

Following a long career in graphic design, I now create abstract artworks. My approach to painting echoes the principles of successful graphics - visual storytelling through symmetry, colour, balance and the spaces in between. My creative process spans both disciplines. I create abstract oil paintings from the landscape around me. I also make alternative variations by digitally manipulating sections of my paintings to create complimentary limited edition prints.

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.

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.

Surrey Artist of the Year 2019
Pippa's art looks at man's inevitable impact on nature by using reclaimed plastic bags, discarded bottle tops and found beach plastic ... ubiquitous and disposable materials and objects that do untold damage to our environment if discarded and used carelessly. Plastic's unimaginably long lifespan coupled with how casually we treat it becomes a perfect metaphor for our blind overconsumption of the material.
