Unruly nature, plants in the cracks of paths, fallen leaves, bumble bees, woodlice, mosses and lichens on walls.
Weeds I've invited into the garden, Ivy-leaved toadflax, self heal, cow-parsley, herb bennet, herb robert, geranlums lucidum and phaeum.
Dabs, streaks, silhouetts, shadows, shapes of colour, side by side, one before the other. Lines that dart, curve, wriggle and surround.

A thought, an idea, a process.

These are a few reasons I paint - Terry


Phillippa trained in Fine Art at Southampton and Exeter Colleges of Art in the late '60s and early '70s. She worked for many years as an art tutor but is now taking her career in a new direction as a freelance artist.

Her first major project is a series of 26 pieces - an A to Z 'Alphabet of Images'.

These are produced using an Indian ink resist technique with added watercolour, wax resist or coloured pencil as desired.

Emily favours working with Acrylic paints but enjoys the alternative of pen and ink drawings, she even dabbles with photographic images.

Her approach and style of painting have developed through being trained as an illustrator at Bournmouth and Poole College at Art and Design.

The results are vibrant detailed images inspired by nature and the landscape. Favorite things to study are trees, pebbles and the beautiful yet sometimes eerie Romney Marsh.


Jessica trained as a physicist but is now "doing art"

She is a fan of the solid line and works with cut paper to produce work with strong contours. She also knits 'oddknits' and likes to experiment with other crafts. Jessica is annoyed that her sister has already used the word 'dabble' because she wanted to use it here.

She enjoys the work of other artists such as Miro, Jan Pienkowski and whoever illustrates the Samurai Jack cartoons.
