David Hobden

I have always had a passion for art, drawing and painting from an early age and have maintained this interest throughout my working life. I am a member of the Attic Art Society and have exhibited at Brighton Art Gallery, The Oxmarket Chichester, Worthing Museum and the Grange Rottingdean. In my early fifties I embarked on a foundation course in art & design at Brighton and this was to have a profound effect on my style of working. I think my work has evolved both technica…

I have enjoyed exploring with paints a few years ago just to see where this was taking me. My curiosity was driving me to use colour in different ways layering, constructing deconstructing dissolving  and just allowing the canvas to make itself. Sometimes it was instant result giving me a sense of completion almost immediate no need  to add or change just let the painting be Other times it was a  much longer journey  to achieve a tone , an energy I felt was relevant.

Creating a 2D image of a 3D subject can be frustrating and torturous as often as it is satisfying and joyous, but what I love about it is that it is always totally absorbing. You will see from my work that I enjoy different subject matter as well as different mediums and styles. I find that different mediums suit different subjects, and switching between all these things keeps the work spontaneous and fresh-for me as well as, I hope, for those viewing it. I am passionate abou…

Isla Willatt

Painting is the language I use to express myself. As a creative activity, it is the most absorbing. I paint with acrylics but rarely use a brush. Fingers, sticks and the fine edge of card, give me the instant results and texture I’m looking for. My topics vary depending on circumstances. I am inspired by colour, architecture and landscape and have recently been developing abstract images. I have exhibited my work in various Open Houses throughout Brighton. I took part in The…

A few years ago, while I was studying at Herefordshire College of Art and Design, I daubed acrylic, smoothed on pastels, crumbled charcoal and gouged and stamped lino prints endlessly. There was always one medium that I always returned to however. Watercolour and ink, with which I developed my illustrative style, although at the time I had no idea in which direction it would eventually lead me! Skip forwards to more recent times, settled happily in Shoreham (add one husband,…

Vanessa Reynolds

I relocated to the beautiful County of Sussex from Hampshire in September 2016 and I have been captivated by the landscape and seascape here. My latest body of work has tried to capture the vibrant colours of the sun lit hills and valleys of the South Downs this Summer ‘Walks with Owen.’ I have also included part of a collection of dancing couples, particularly focussing on dramatic lighting and the physicality of dance. I was selected to be as a contestant on Sky Arts Landsc…

I began as a cartoonist and was published in Private Eye etc. I am self taught and have developed as an artist in local art groups. My main inspiration comes from my observations of life! Three years ago I traveled to New Orleans somewhere I had always wanted to visit and where my perspective on life and art was changed forever. I would call myself an Expressionist and I like to tackle drawing and painting Portraits, Still Life and Illustration.

Paul Michaelides (known as Aris)

My interest in paintings started at an early age whilst living in my native country of Cyprus. A Greek family that were close friends had three children, all of them talented, one of which was an artist a few years older than me. I would accompany him on his painting trips and was fascinated by the blank canvas, the scene, and then the developing picture. He then went on to study abroad and is now the Leading Sceneographer in Cyprus theatre. We are still in touch. However, as…

Julia Ann Field

I paint plein air Landscapes, Sacred-scapes and saucy little “Willendorfs” based on the Paleolithic Venus figurine. ​

Tim Gwyther

The underlying theme in my work is the relationship between past and present.: pathways and markers that delineate the landscape;  cities revealing their memories in shadows and decay. Places named in a different age –dislocated now from their origins. Stolen meanings and associations with art from the past. A dynamic exchange with ancient sites and artefacts. Much of my work originates in Cornwall and I am represented there at the Riverbank Gallery in Newlyn

Sue Hawksworth

I have long been inspired by the effect man and nature have on the landscape. Light and shadow play an important part in my work enabling the pattern and form of the landscape to be revealed. I have explored these themes in a range of media including monoprint and collograph. I enjoy working with different materials and processes, and the flexibility of mixing media enables me to explore more abstract forms. Recently, I have been making drawings of ruined buildings, including…

Jude Evans

I have lived on the south coast for many years, and the landscape and seaside of East and West Sussex have inspired me to create images that express my sense of connection with local surroundings. Currently, I’m working on making graphic images of local scenes of Worthing, Brighton and Shoreham-by-Sea, using photography and digital technology, which offer a new and exciting way of transforming the landscape into visual art. All my images are available to buy as limited editio…
