Stroud High Street - Chris James

This month's featured artists: April '24

Alice Hutt - artist


This inspiration provides the basis for both abstract paintings and highly detailed observational studies. I use a variety of different media to create my work and nothing is off limits. In seeking to be as sustainable as possible

Through my life long fascination with nature, geology and the earth, I explore the intricate patterns, shapes, colours and textures that are found within the natural world.


within my practice, I create my own paints, pigments and inks from the raw materials I find around me.

Through the processes of grinding, mashing, mulling, stewing and straining, I experience a strong connection to nature that is deeply grounding and connects me to the earth. My work is always evolving and growing; I am always in flux and open to new ideas.

Louise Abel - artist

Louise creates soothing utopias, usually removing nearly all human-made structures from real life landscapes to provide an antidote to the chaos of modern life.

Her peaceful yet vibrant scenes help her to survive the world and calm her sensory overload and anxious autistic brain, often benefitting from the therapeutic effects of simplicity and repetition showing up as patterns in her work.
