My art has evolved from using cartoons and illustrations in the field of humanitarian aid, to experimenting with digital art, charcoal and acrylics. I have been involved with refugees and asylum seekers in creating art together to capture their experiences and hopes for the future. My interaction with them has always inspired me to try new ideas and styles.
Growing up in an artistic family in Tennessee, Rebecca eventually stumbled across “Colour” - a book which led to her own artistic journey. Starting in Switzerland working with Beppa Assenza, who had developed an approach to colour based on Rudolf Steiner’s work on colour. This was her foundation. From this point Rebecca has experimented with all mediums and has developed her own style.
I am a Rodborough artist, specialising in pen and ink and watercolour paintings of vintage vehicles and aviation subjects. I also work in acrylics, and paint leather jackets. Other subjects include animals and birds, people, and architectural. I have exhibited at the Mall Gallery, London, with the Guild of Aviation Artists.
The play of dappled light, shadows, reflections and contrasts excite me and I am especially inspired by our local landscapes. I paint with oils, but also try to capture the beauty of found objects such as feathers, shells, twigs or everyday objects in pencil or fine-liner. I hope the magic I find in everyday life comes across!
I am an artist in Gloucester. My 2021 collection includes Angels on canvases. I am currently planning my 2022 collection “Cotswold” with Wioletta Quill (a Stroud photographer). I run art clubs in schools; have eco craft projects as “2 crazy crafters”; enjoy experimenting. In January 2020 I won an Abstract competition in ‘Oleśnica Dwurnikiem’
I like to create fluency and a sense of spontaneous energy in the handling, capturing the character of the animals and people. I love to be out of the studio, meeting new people and seeing life, nature, feel the fresh air around, this gives me inspiration and the excitement to develop my work further.
"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.
Currently working with oil, acrylic, mixed media, pencil and ink - work covers any topic from industrial to natural to urban. Mostly working in and around Stroud, Cheltenham and Gloucester. Visual marks make their way onto clay, porcelain and more recently wooden sculpture (current piece hanging from Studio 18’s ceiling). In 2019 the large mural in the Eastcombe Bus Shelter was created.
Painting (mostly oil) and drawing go hand in hand and are a constant source of intrigue and enjoyment. Recently I have focused on figure and portrait work, but still life is important to me and in the Cotswolds, landscape just won’t go away. I try to blend the techniques of traditional painting and a contemporary view or choice of subject.
Tania is a painter and illustrator living in Nailsworth with a studio in Stroud. She paints primarily alla prima in oils, but also undertakes portrait commissions of individuals and houses. Her illustrative work is hand drawn and inspired by vintage books on interiors, fairy tales, fashion, botany, animal studies & architecture; synthesised to create fresh new aesthetics.
Wedad is half Jordanian half Polish, and always felt torn between two worlds. Through her art, she creates her own “nationality“. Her paintings focus on the play of lights and shadow, trying to present unique beauty amongst the ugliness. She is inspired by the human body and its beauty, always striving to present it as an integral entirety with spirit and soul - a full package of expression.
I produce drawings, paintings and sculptures and am often inspired by my interests in esoteric spirituality. I like to experiment with geometric forms, images seen in meditation and sometimes semi-automatic drawing as well as a basic practice of working from life. I try to use recycled materials where possible.
