Jenny is a contemporary watercolour artist. She is inspired by the British landscape, especially the North East, Yorkshire and the Isles of Scilly. Her paintings are full of movement, colour and energy, making the most of watercolours translucent pigments and fluid nature. Commissions welcome.
Hannah creates lively bold cityscapes and contemporary deckchair/ski scenes on canvas.
“People have described my work as “happy art” and I like that, I think if you’re going to invest in a painting and hang it on your wall, why shouldn't it make you smile?"
She welcomes commissions so pop along and have a chat.
Colombian by birth, Dairo Vargas is a contemporary fine artist who specialises in landscapes. His paintings are inspired by places in the UK that hold a particular resonance - Sussex's South Downs, The Black Mountains in Wales, the Yorkshire Dales and the British coast.
I want my paintings to create a visual and emotional reaction to the way the colours harmonise, fight and blend, all governed by the strength of light and shade. I aim towards the vital character of a subject, allowing its essence to emerge in simplified form.
Based in the Cotswolds, Andy became a full-time artist exhibiting in the Saatchi Gallery, London.
Predominantly landscapes and seascapes, Andy's artworks comprise intricate "mosaics" of coloured triangles, hand-drawn digitally using a tablet and stylus.
Representational from distance, each piece becomes abstract upon closer viewing.
Each Limited Edition Giclee print comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.

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.

Professional artist creating deeply passionate fine art in a contemporary realism style. In addition to originals, limited edition hand embellished prints are available for all artwork.

Esher based, Jonquil takes inspiration from capturing the vibrancy of colour and texture in fruit and how that combines with the simplicity of everyday pots, bottles and bowls. Strong geometric lines give a vibrancy to her contemporary still life. This vibrancy of colour also influences her atmospheric landscapes.
Colour has been the prime element in my painting post a degree in Fine Art. I have worked from my studio exhibiting and selling work which has become more abstract. It is the story which can be found within the shapes in the painting which I find and ask my viewer to find.
