My work utilises the colours and textures of glass fusing materials and techniques as a fine art medium, an intuitive and painterly response to an image or drawing, further enhanced by the surprises created during the glass firing process. Favourite inspirational locations of mine are Cornwall and the South Downs. Fundamental to this process are my drawings in charcoal and pastel, which can provide the inspiration and starting point for my glass work, or become pieces of art in their own right. I have a background in Art and Design including a BA (Hons) Design degree, with a career working in Design and then teaching Textiles and Art. I now run Artworks, an independent studio in Aldsworth providing a range of creative classes and workshops.

My paintings are contemporary and colourful. My style blends a contemporary approach, traditional subjects and unusual modern textures, developed when studying for my BA (Hons) and Master’s degree in Fine Art. Using a variety of media, working methods and supports, I strive to create beautiful, vibrant and dynamic images from a truly original perspective. I often enhance my paintings by using a deep gloss finish which gives the colours a jewel-like intensity and the painting an added dimension. This high gloss finish is a particular feature of my Urbanscapes. I am excited by the feel of a brush, the quality of a canvas, the vivid pool of untouched paint straight from the tube, the texture of the mark I make, the smell of the studio and my next painting journey.

I am, above all, an explorer. Known for my vibrant paintings on aluminium and birch I paint spontaneously, using colour and mark to explore subjects as diverse as the music of Ravel, the north Cornish coast and the rolling hills of Hampshire where I live. I approach each new painting as if it were my first, putting aside figurative references and preferring to allow the work to develop its own unique voice. I cannot work to a particular brief or style without losing something essential. I have to keep exploring, otherwise the work would not be a true reflection of me.

Intuitive abstract painter working in acrylic and oils. Marion’s work is multilayered balancing colour and design. She enjoys using colour and her art reflects this. The colour of Provence shines through her work and, although intuitive, many of her abstracts suggest the Provençal landscape with it’s colourful flower fields cradled by a backdrop of mountains. These colours extend into her more graphic work which reflects back to her scientific training.

Alison is a professional, award winning artist, known for her unique interpretation of wildlife. Her abstract paintings use colour and design and are instantly recognisable. Originally a traditional wildlife artist, Alison had a change of direction in 1999 moving to a more experimental abstract style of working. Alison won First Prize in the Experimental/Abstract category of The Artist 2000 Celebration Competition, with her first abstract painting ‘Puffin Paradise’. Since then she has developed her well known, distinctive style.

I work in acrylics on canvas and board. I gave up the day job to paint 18 months ago and am still developing my skills and style: I am inspired by the beautiful landscapes of SW Wales where I live, and am drawn to the vibrant colours and light. I work from plein aire sketches and photographs that I have taken in situ, and then work on the larger pieces back in the studio. Smaller pieces are sometimes finished on site- this is something i am aiming to do more of. I love trying to be loose and more abstract in my interpretation of the landscapes and enjoy including media such as gold leaf and texture pastes in my work.
