Stroud High Street - Chris James

This month's featured artists: December '23

Maggie Smith: artist

I am a mixed media landscape painter working mainly with watercolour and acrylic inks but often the use of materials such as pastel and inktense pencils.

I paint semi abstract landscapes inspired by the countryside around my home near Sheepscombe or photographs taken on holiday.

I enjoy using my imagination, often departing from the reality of the scene before me. I work primarily wet on wet, letting my materials flow and mix, embracing happy accidents and interpreting what they represent.

Catherine Jones - artist

I finally went to art school as a very mature student having had my first piece of art exhibited in a London gallery age 41.

 I love exploring the landscape and nature and use it as the starting point of both my figurative and abstract work.I love sharing my knowledge and run regular workshops- in particular I enjoy teaching beginners and those who don't think they can make art.

 The world would be a better place if we all relaxed and created! I also love exploring new ways and techniques to make art especially methods that are easy to share with others.
