Elaine Reed is a Watercolour painter. She is inspired by all aspects of the natural world whether nearby and domestic or far away and wild. She is intensely interested in Geology, Botany, Biology, Folklore and Myth. The mathematics of patterns in nature, how things physically grow and evolve is especially fascinating to her. Water and Sea are subjects that Elaine returns to all the time. She lives by the coast so this has become an endless source of ideas for paintings.
Chris Lewis: Although a latecomer to the art world Chris has always loved and had an interest in art. Chris has had no formal training but has immersed herself in experimenting with a variety of materials, colour and subject matter. She enjoys painting many different subjects and loves the excitement and challenge of attempting something new. Living close to the sea, her paintings often explore the coast and reflect her love of everything coastal, trying to find ways to represent the beauty, wildness and energy.
Caroline Shields uses the Relief Printmaking process to create colourful renditions of stylised images depicting the English countryside and its wildlife.
Sue Wells is inspired by the colours and textures of semi-precious stones and finds spacing them on silver wire best displays their individual variety and beauty. She loves the colours in natural materials such as; Paua and Black Lip Mussel shells and pearls and this inspires her ocean-themed ranges of jewellery. Recently she has been experimenting with recycled plastic resulting in some colourful pieces.
