Jenny trained in stained and fused glass in Singapore in the late 90s. She developed her knowledge with further courses and experimentation along with additional training in silverwork and furniture restoration. Although she loves each creative discipline, her greatest joy is combining them into a new and exciting design, taking inspiration from the natural beauty in the local Cotswold area.
Louise creates contemporary watercolours with mixed media, painting utopian scenes of peace, solitude and nature. As an autistic person with sensory processing difficulties and frequent sensory overload, she finds comfort in the tiny remote houses often seen in her work and the nature of simplicity and repetition. Described as "a hit of dopamine" and “a visual treat”. Louise hopes to evoke a sense of joy and serenity in an otherwise chaotic world.
Catherine has been an artist since childhood, always painting at home and hiding in the art block at school...she finally went to art school a few years ago and was awarded a distinction for her MA. She spends most of her time working in 2D, painting drawing and pattern making as well as painting furniture and murals. She loves teaching and sharing her passion for creativity.
"It is true for me that art can speak where words often fail" I am a self-taught mixed media artist living in Gloucestershire. I have always loved art but now have the time to really develop and follow my passion. I love to create imaginative, original artwork designs on different themes. My inspirations are nature, wildlife, history, faith, hope, emotions, love, poetry and music.
