Inspired by the Sussex landscape and coastline, Faye’s paintings capture those fleeting moments of light, movement and feelings. Faye mark makes by using objects found during beach-combing adventures, from fisherman’s knots and driftwood to feathers and bottle tops. These tactile objects are used as tools, to make brushes or pens to print and scratch the paintings. Together with the layering of paint and ink, charcoal and pencil the technique produces contemporary sea and landscape. The paintings are timeless and conjure distant memories.

Fiona works mainly in acrylic, applying thick layers with credit cards, fingers and occasionally a brush from her studio. Her work is inspired by the beautiful local countryside in Hampshire where she walks daily with her dog, but her love of colours and use of space on the canvas is what excites her the most about painting. Fiona’s goal is to make her paintings come alive, using colours that bring her energy on to the canvas. Many have been painted whilst dancing in her studio and this adds a real vibrancy to her work.

I have always been a painter. Painting for me is as necessary as eating and breathing, and when I do not paint I feel out of balance. I deeply need to paint and to express the beauty that I experience around me in nature, both on the surface and at depth. My subject matter is more about shape and abstract structure, and how these change in different light at different times of the day and in different seasons, rather than about specific details of the landscape. I am interested in the dialogue of the relationship of the two-dimensional painted surface of the painting with the illusion of space and light, in the interplay between abstraction and representation.

Geometric, Hard Edge, Minimalist and 3D fascinates me. Using acrylics on Aluminium or Birch surfaces and Alu-Mesh sculptured over fabrics, my goals are to conceptualise, capture and design new and fascinating linear-geometric abstract art that delivers a capacity to create fascination, evoke deep thought and engage great emotion and distill mood for the viewers.

I studied Fine Art Printmaking at the Ulster College of Art and Design and have a MFA from Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
I work in stone lithography and lino cut and have been self employed since 1995. My inspiration comes from the countryside and gardens of Britain and Ireland. In the last couple of years I have started making one off collages of my lino cuts printed on Irish linen. Each piece is unique as I use locally sourced linen, some of it vintage. I sew the linen pieces into position by hand and use more hand stitching to accentuate elements of each image.

I was born in India, but have have been in the UK for the past two decades. Art has always been my passion, and my work has been influenced by the diverse cultures that I have been exposed to, and these are reflected in my paintings. I am a mostly self-taught artist especially interested in expressing myself through my abstract artwork. I believe that art is a means of communication, means of expression, means of appreciation, of various feelings, emotions, nature and personalities. I like to abstract my art because it gives me more freedom to express myself and create artworks with intense feelings and emotions from the depth of my heart and soul. I take a lot of time to produce each painting so that I can achieve my true intentions.

Having grown up in London and moving to East Sussex 10 years ago I was in awe of the many deer that roam wild around me. I love that we live alongside such large beautiful creatures and walk daily in the oldest deer park in Great Britain. This inspired me to start painting after many years of not practicing and my work has grown to include all local animals. I like to paint fairly large scale with the majority of my paintings being 1m x 1m. My brushstrokes are free and I try to capture the beauty of each animal I paint. My training is in textile design and I use this in the decorative backgrounds of my canvases and gain inspiration here from travels, fashion and interior trends. I use many techniques to add interest, including lino printing, and then work into this. I have exhibited at several Art Fairs and galleries locally.

My oil paintings form a bold, intuitive and simplistic approach to painting. The development of my personal style has been through meditating on a particular subject or experience within my own thoughts and emotions, incorporating aspects of abstraction.

Gina Seltzer began her career in London where she trained and worked as a sculptural conservator whist studying towards her degree in visual arts. Her work evolved accidentally into mixed media exploring different techniques and materials including acrylics, paper, photos, resin, wax, beads, crystals and glitter. Her portraits typically portray vintage Hollywood icons and are characterised by intense colour against the seductive black and white images. Her work portrays a strong unique yet playful approach on the feminine and modern form.

I Live and work in the South Downs National Park and my landscapes are colourful, vibrant evocations of the world around me. I concern myself with the weather the movement of light and the very feeling of being within the picture. Painting in my studio or plain air my work describes the very essence of every scene i encounter.

Hannah paints lively, colourful cityscapes, bold landmarks and contemporary deckchair / ski scenes on canvas. Her aim is to make people smile with her work, to transport them into the scene and its atmosphere. “People have described my work as ‘happy art’ and I like that, I think if you are going to invest in a painting and hang it on your wall it should make you feel good every time you walk into the room.”

After a career as a design and branding consultant I now dedicated my time to creating 3D collage. I am submitting to you because my work is unique. That is, I’ve found nobody doing anything similar. And the response from viewers is always – amazement and positive comments. I specialise in 3 dimensional collage. I take images, manipulate them and print out copies on matt art paper which I then cut out in sections and layer them to create an intriguing illusion of depth and space. The subject matter varies from Favelas, townscapes, forests, food in fact anything which offers up great opportunities to my special 3D treatment.

For Jo, art is emotion. How she feels when creating a piece and how people feel when they see it is important, but either way, different pieces evoke different emotions in different people, exactly as it should be. Jo’s inspiration comes from her emotional response to life around her. Sights, sounds, smells, textures, shapes, colours, anything that makes her ‘feel’ is fair game for her creativity. Jo lives in the Home Counties, England and has always been immersed in art, learning at her fathers knee. For a long time art was just a hobby…until it wasn’t. Describing herself as a logical creative Jo’s love of science often shows through her work, as she gives the subject her creative twist. She works in a variety of media but leans toward ink or pencil and a lot of her work contains a design element.

Creating beautiful oil paintings, on canvas, Jo is a British artist living in Paris and Provence. Spending weekends and holidays in Provence, where home is in the foothills of the Mont Ste Victoire, Jo feels the ever-present shadow of Cézanne, who made the mountain so celebrated with so many stunning paintings. With the red earth, changing colours of the vines, villages perched on top of hills, the breathtaking views from the hilltops, how can one not paint? Inspired by nature and its ability to surprise you with movement, colour and form. She loves to use shadows and light in her paintings to evoke a sense of depth and vibrancy.

I am an oil painter based in West Sussex. I paint a wide range of subjects from contemporary landscapes which capture light, colour and texture to life studies, largely of people, which exhibit a graphic quality, focusing on tone and composition. I often work from black and white historic photographs, capturing the nostalgia of the time but in a contemporary style and limited colour palette. I have recently painted old livestock markets and other English countryside subjects including herds of cows and hounds. I have exhibited in Sussex, Berkshire, Kent and at the Mall Galleries, London.

I am a contemporary painter, predominantly in acrylics. I am currently concentrating on figurative work, exploring the body’s ability to create, express and produce emotion, and to both release and imprison. However, what I love about art is that each person’s response to an artwork is uniquely their own. The most important thing is that I find painting a joy and enormous fun, and hope that some of that gets sprinkled into my work and passed on to those who view it.

I am a photographic artist, specialising in atmospheric and evocative images inspired by flowers and foliage and the natural world. Nature is good for the soul, and I am looking to capture some of its beauty and serenity and harmony in my work. My style is painterly and impressionistic, combining a strong sense of colour and form with an interest in textural effects and abstraction. I use soft focus, multiple exposure, and camera movement to create images with a fluid, organic feel, and am often drawn to the intimate details to be found in nature that are revealed beyond the normal viewpoint.

Jody’s artwork encompasses the classical, grandeur and beauty of Roman and Greek statues, yet brings a contemporary, current vibe to the artwork with the addition of graffiti and body art to the statue. All originals are oil on canvas, almost a nod back to this classical era.

My paintings are currently inspired by local rural landscapes and gardens. I work with layers of semi-transparent colour; realistic imagery is broken down into semi abstracted forms. I like to hint at the passage of time in some of my more abstract works with a rich tapestry of patterns, prints, textures and drips. I work mainly in acrylic both on canvas and paper. My website shows the work that I have produced since moving back to the UK in June 2018, 6 months ago. (I was an International Art Teacher, teaching overseas for the past 20 years). I am now living in Northamptonshire and following my passion, to paint!
