Sharon's latest body of work explores the sea, it's moods and our connection with it. Using oil, pastel and mixed media experimentation she produces contemporary pieces of work on a small and large scale. Her studio is situated in a beautiful garden which visitors are welcome to explore. Sharon is also showing at The Willis Museum Basingstoke during May.
Away from oils this year, Julia has developed her own technique for creating fine, hand-made paper which she uses to produce delicate ink and pastel drawings. Her inspiration comes mostly from the plants in her own garden and those encountered whilst out walking. These fine pieces are displayed in box frames which further enhance the sensation of depth.
Julia has also expanded this technique to design and craft notecards: each one is therefore an individual and unique creation.
Once again Jan is exhibiting at Rookery Farm, a marvellous venue for her garden art. She continues to be inspired by her frequent walks in Savernake Forest with its wealth of decomposing but still stately trees. Her hand built sculptural forms are robust and frost proof, making them suitable for interior or exterior display.
This year I have been experimenting with a combination of thin washes of paint and sheer textiles to create a sense of movement and transience in my work. In other pieces I have developed more abstract backgrounds using mixed media and repeat printing.
