We very much look forward to welcoming you to our exhibition and sharing this collection of beautiful local artists' work with you.
I make sterling silver jewellery, organic in style, reflecting our natural surroundings. My work is inspired by the beautiful textures and forms found in nature. Seeds, leaves, shells, flowers and other objects collected on walks around the country become templates or the start of an idea. My pieces are handcrafted using traditional silversmithing methods enhanced by fresh, modern techniques and include pendants, rings, bangles and earrings.
The built environment is a constant source of inspiration for my work. A recent trip to Sicily has infuenced the patterns and colours on my latest ceramics . A visit to Southwold inspired a series of paintings depicting the fishermens huts and boats along Blackshore.
Having been introduced to clay about 13 years ago, I quickly found my passion for hand building (rather than throwing on a wheel). This method allows me to really feel what I am making, developing each pot organically so that one pot is never the same as another. It is a very peaceful and therapeutic process which I hope is reflected in the pieces that I make. Colour is very important to me and like many, my inspiration comes from the environment that I often find myself in, whether it be the
A love of flowers and plants and our landscape and countryside are my major influences. This is coupled with my training and work in textile art, with its colours, shapes and patterns . My aim is to create work that reflects the beauty and emotion of our world. My hope is that each piece will continue to be of interest to the viewer and give pleasure.
Jenny's glass work is inspired by colour, texture and pattern which she plays with to create affordable, functional glass vessels and jewellery
I live and work in Buckinghamshire and draw, paint and sculpt working in a wide range of media. I experiment during the creative process by layering and building up textures or colours. I take inspiration from the natural landscape and am attracted to shapes and surfaces which are a result of the changing elements and seasons. Most of all I simply enjoy trying to capture or recreate a moment or scene and have a lot of fun in the process.
I will be exhibiting a selection of abstract paintings with an exciting and diverse group of painters, ceramicists, jewellers, glassmakers and more. Our lovely venue includes a café, demos and parking. Looking forward to seeing you there.
I am inspired by the vivid colours, amazing patterns and textures I see all around me, especially from nature. Using my original detailed pencil drawings I combine shape, colour and texture to create original designs on silk. I use the traditional technique of batik which involve wax resist and overdyeing but in a modern way to produce fresh vibrant designs. I also work in a similar way with mixed media and acrylics on paper. My work is available as original artworks, also as digitally printed
Paintings in oil, and drawings in various media, inspired by the local landscape and beyond. I like to seek out the less obvious views that the casual passer-by may not even notice. Sketchbooks also on available. Exhibiting with a wonderful and diverse group of artists and makers at this delightful venue.
I have always had a particular interest in oil and gouache painting. Trained at Camberwell College Of Art and Goldsmiths in the 1980s and completed a BA Degree in Fine Art. I have an avid interest in light, colour and paint texture, and happy to paint either landscape or portraiture. I was successful in winning a “wild card” heat in the Sky Arts Landscape Programme in 2015 and 2020. I have frequently been told I have the ability to get into the personality of my subjects and apply a sensitive an
I create art using glass as my medium and love exploring different techniques. I also believe passionately that we all are born creative and have a full teaching practice dedicated to helping others find their creative voice through one day workshops, ongoing weekly classes and mentorship and in depth creative retreats. • Insurance docs attached
Jaany Ravenscroft-Hull is a seascape artist living in Wendover, Buckinghamshire. Her expressive oil paintings depict seascapes of the dramatic, ever changing North Norfolk coast and West coast of Ireland. ‘There is a clarity that is only found when we are at the sea, above the coastline, out in nature and seeing the long view ahead of us. These times can be transformative and help us understand what is most important to us at that moment in time. The sky and sea have that sense of freedom
Colin is a self taught artist residing in Aylesbury Bucks. He works various media including Watercolour, Acrylics, Ink, Charcoal and Graphite.
Steve Thompson artist doing what he's always wanted to do
I make both functional and decorative thrown ware. I love the rhythm of throwing clay, and the joy of creating curves and shape. I aim to find a balance between function and form. I use a range of finishing techniques, including naked and glazed raku, as well as carving and sgraffito to provide texture and pattern on my work. I enjoy carving clay to provide multi-layered surfaces for glazes to flow over. On decorative slip-covered plates I use sgraffito to form abstract designs.
