Karen is passionate about wildlife and the energy of the great outdoors. Inspired from her travels around Africa and working with British wildlife, is captivated by the spirit of wildlife and their environment. Karen loves the use of bold and vibrant acrylic colour to bring her work alive and catch an eye. Using mainly brushes, sometimes palette knife, credit card and rollers, adding layers. Karen combines a semi realistic style with her subject along with abstract styles to her background.

‘Landscapes and skies are often overlooked, they surround us and yet can be missed as we are caught up in our busy lives’. Karen captures them on her phone and sketches on site liking the idea they are part memory and part real. Karen has an intuitive approach to painting preferring to explore the colours of dreams rather than reality … ‘They become part real and part of my dreamscape. They allow me to free myself from the reality of the everyday’.

I’m continually fascinated by faces, human and animal, with all the emotions, thoughts and stories that dart and glimmer behind the eyes. Creating mainly portraits and figurative paintings in pastels, I try to capture this essence and intensity of the subject, who and whatever they may be, hoping that they may leave an impression on the viewer as someone you’ve met or left…. that there maybe another narrative, hidden, just below the surface. I’m still captivated by the immediacy and intensity of pastels ….and their incredible versatility and the depth that can be created. I enjoy exploring unusual grounds and surfaces such as wood, sheet metal, resin and often apply 22 carat gold and silver leaf to add different dimensions and challenges to create something more impactful and unexpected.

His work largely reflects his thoughts, dreams, and emotions he has felt about his life and his position within the world as the son of Irish migrants and also touches on subjects such the struggle of growing up with Tourettes, anxiety and mental health, religion and politics within the Irish community, human connection and the loss of loved ones.

Laura is a representational artist, living and working in Hertfordshire. Her figurative and portrait work are atmospheric paintings, breathing life on the depth of diverse human emotions. Her inspiration is immersed in the classical style of oil painting that centres around the aesthetic values of colour and unity of space, where the use of light and interpreted brush strokes create her distinctive, contemporary style.

‘I believe in creating art that adds beauty back into the Contemporary Art discussion. I make paintings that are concerned with inspiring emotional responses in the viewers, allowing them to be transported into a new world of paint and colour. Up until 2014, I created art using pre-made acrylic and emulsion paints but in 2015 I started a new exclusive series of artworks called ‘The Collection’ using hand mixed paints, diamond dust and lacquer finishes that reference unique paintings that have influenced the history of art . This is a great step towards the unification of my educational qualifications and my artistic countenance and I am looking forward to unveiling this new line of artwork in the coming year.’

I produce three-dimensional, mixed media witty boxed and freestanding sculptures. Each piece encapsulates a moment in time, involving the careful play of light with shadow. Much of the content of my work is brilliant white, with striking splashes of colour providing a dramatic contrast. My sculptures tell a story, but I like to leave a lot to the imagination of the viewer. I am also motivated by seeing a smile develop when people look at my work.

Colour, line and form is my creative language to express the images, shapes and patterns of the Suffolk coast local to me. My compositions are found from photographing and recording my journeys of the skylines and woodlands to the expanse of the meeting edge of sea, sky, beach and heath.

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.

I have taken inspiration for my art from many years of walking my dogs and have attempted to capture the beauty, atmosphere and emotions evoked by the landscapes I have encountered in my work. To create my artworks begin with photographs, usually of the beautiful Sussex countryside – especially the Ashdown Forest, and then digitally combine them in the studio with my sketches, paintings, textures and found objects. These are then printed as fine art prints onto heavy textured paper to enhance the dream like quality of the images.

My current interest is in the post capture creative process. It is a search for colours and forms that emanate from my inside, often completely unrelated to the original subject. Brush in hand, the journey of image transformation is an art form of its own. Colours and shapes are transformed again and again until the time when a solution emerges, sometimes with a tremendous eureka effect; almost orgasmic. The journey from photographic camera to canvas, my creative journey.

Turner describes his current work as being more akin to taking the time to read a novel – investing in slowly connecting with the emotion, suspense and detail – rather than the fast-pace of a movie. These monochrome drawings capture a moment, a freeze-frame or a still, engaging the audience with enough detail to be fully absorbed, while promising more in every viewing of these rich, multifaceted images.

My artwork is inspired by Celtic history, art and culture. The historical texts of Peter Berresford Ellis and others have inspired these organic images. The compositions are a reflection of my understanding of the natural world. The forms take shape and grow into all sorts of natural-looking objects and landscape features. The guiding working principle of my artwork is to experience Zen and achieve balance. The end result is always a chaotic, yet balanced image that mirrors the visual complexity of the natural world. I find it rewarding that the images seem to share the “DNA” of Celtic art works from so long ago. The line work and colors I’ve discovered are like jewels wrapped in the fantastic, swirling aesthetic of traditional Celtic art.

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.

Nadezhda’s earliest influences are comic book art and Orthodox religious icons, and her large scale contemporary portraits are a combination of these two disciplines; exuding power, simplicity and meditation. Nadezhda reduces everything to a block of singular colour, which magnifies the essence of the subject, by excluding all superfluous fuss. Large areas of empty space around the subject throw into focus the humanity of the person there. The powerful humanity of Nadezhda’s work is what resonates with her and the viewer above all, and it is this expression of humanity that she seeks to bring into the world for others to deeply connect with. She works to commission and also creates her own work for exhibition and sale.

My vessels and tablewares can be made in silver as heirlooms or embrace the unsung traits of copper & aluminium meaning clients can own a work of art they aren’t afraid to display and use everyday, turning the ordinary into the extraordinary. My studio is by the Thames and more recently, influenced by the decline of traditional industries on the river and the loss of the skills of my father’s generation, I have become passionate about holding on to these hand skills and moved my practice on to include the technique of handraising using aluminium copper & silver.
