Ted Young

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.

Art Hobbs (Sam Hobbs)

“Growing up near the North East coast, I am inspired by seascapes both real and imagined. I am drawn to forgotten worlds and the mythical, where the possibility of magic lies. I seek out old atlases, maps and stamps to use in my work, combining collage, print and drawing to bring new life and meaning to these beautiful, redundant items”. Sam Hobbs is an Artist Teacher with a background in Textiles. She worked as a designer and self-employed shop owner before training to teach…

My name is Eleonora Medwell, and I am a self-taught artist. I was born in Ukraine and have lived in Worthing, West Sussex, UK since 2005 with my husband Kenneth Medwell.

Tom Gillham

I am fascinated by what it is to be human, our encounters with nature and creation of man-made objects as a result. My art seeks to convey aspects of beautiful imperfection I see in the world. My intention is to create pictures and images that resonate and connect with others. Previously a Londoner, I am loving the fresh air and openness of West Sussex.  My home since 2011 is on edge of downs overlooking coastal town and sea, these local scenes have provided me with wonderful…

Gabriella Agular

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. By movin…

Jen Green

I’m a Sussex-based artist who enjoys working in different media. My watercolours are inspired by nature, including our beautiful South Downs. My prints are mostly made from paintings done on my travels. I regularly take painting and hiking trips in mountains such as the Alps. I make mosaic mirrors and linocuts and also carve in wood. I am happy to undertake commissions, including for customised paintings and mosaics.

Karen Bravery

Karen lives in Shoreham-by-sea and paints in her garden studio. Karen has been using pastels for animal portraits since 2015. She is mostly self-taught. In August 2016, following a long career as a nurse she took early retirement to develop her painting skills and abilities in portraiture. Since retiring she has been attending life drawing classes and is learning to draw and paint the human face. She loves seeing the face of the animal or person emerge from the page.

Penny Mechen

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…

Kathy Serinturk

I am a mosaic artist and I make 2d pictures, 3D tables and mosaic mirrors. I also take commissions. At present I am working on a series of mosaic angels.

Sarah Sutherland-Rowe

Arts University Bournemouth Photography graduate, 1994. I love to capture everyday beauty, from a hard frost to a sunrise, a tiny flower to an huge oak tree. I also take portraits and although I have a studio, I prefer to do environmental portraits. I love to go to places where my subjects have a connection, a place that meaningful and brings out the best in them.

I’ve been working with clay for most of my life and still get surprised by its possibilities. More recently I’ve been exploring the potential of ink and water. My work is initially in response to my surroundings but is essentially an expression of where I am internally.

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…

Daisy Dawson

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,…

Alison Crowe – Arian Silver Designs

Working from my home studio in West Sussex, I design and create jewellery pieces inspired by organic shapes, patterns and textures using a range of traditional silversmithing skills. All items are in a contemporary, wearable style. After working in the arts and higher education for a number of years I took lessons from a professional silversmith. What started out as a bit of an experiment then became an all-consuming passion. I now devote most of my time to designing and maki…

Sally Croucher

Trained in Three Dimensional design specialising in ceramics. Now exploring the delights of fused glass-  currently making a version of glass bunting.

David J Lilly

David is colour-blind from birth. Born into a time and place where colour-blindness was considered a limiting factor, David was consciously discouraged at school from taking up an artistic career. David’s most lasting memory of being exposed to mind-boggling art (as a teenager) was Coventry Cathedral; and it was from there that his love of coloured glass began. At the turn of the 21st century David found himself with free time and went on a stained- glass course. This lead on…

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…

Wendy Standen

I retired from primary teaching in 2002, having always been in charge of Art and Design in the various schools in which I taught. I had great opportunities to learn skills across the wide range of arty crafty subjects (everything from pottery to lino cuts from woodwork to embroidery!) On retirement I finally had the energy to explore and develop my own interests. Initially I went to life drawing and sculpture classes, loving creating the human form in clay and stone and this…

Karren Urben

My paintings are all inspired by my surroundings. I live in West Sussex and have constant inspiration in the Land and Seascapes around me. Visiting seabirds are a constant delight. Oystercatchers, Egrets and Turnstones among them I’m often drawn to paint them. Mostly working in Oil on canvas from my little studio at home in Ferring, from which I can see Highdown Hill, tonal values and the play of light is a delight to try and capture. My dogs soon draw me out of the studio an…

Johannes Kerkhoven, Dutch, lived in Australia now in Hove, East Sussex. Since retiring takes his painting and drawing seriously and exhibits regularly. Published short stories, poetry. Mixed Concrete – Visual Poetry was published Hearing Eye in 2006. Dupont Art Club “Artist of the Year” August. 2016-17.

Nina Smith

I was brought up in Cornwall, the daughter of two potters, where my early life was heavily influenced by a wealth of local craftspeople, and the magical shapes and colours of the sea and the land. As a former graphic designer working in colour for printing, my inherent design skill translates perfectly to my glass work. Combining textures, layers and colour, I produce bold graphic patterned glasswork including dichroic jewellery, tableware and art.

Maddie Zayeet

I like to use film-making, photography, theatre, sculpture and papier-mache in my work. Art is how I tend to engage in political expression, connect with nature and explore pattern and chaos. I’m a founding member (1998) of The Dyke Modern art collective which runs workshops and events locally. You can have a look at some of my films on my Youtube channel: Maddie Zayeet

Peon Boyle

Peon is a local printmaker and she uses everyday object or scenery to tell a story. She loves walking at the South Downs and the woodland, her recent work depicted the landscape where she escapes from her day to day roles and where she finds balance in her life and gain strength for her inner-self.  Printmaking found her at her second year of her Fine Art degree. She loves process and steps; there is a set format to follow and she just loses herself when printing and wiping t…

Judy Alexander

These windblown poppies were painted, layered with textiles and heavily stitched on paper and canvas.

Gill Dixon

Originally trained as a Stage Designer, for many years I worked in costume design and production for the two London opera houses. Recently I have been creating paintings, embroideries and textile based pieces in response to my immediate environment; the river Adur in all its changing moods, the tidal ebb and flow under the looming presence of the South Downs and even the  sun-baked streets of Shoreham. Most recently I have been  working in acrylics making paintings and drawin…

Nancy Ouchida Howells

Nancy believes that beautiful letters, words, thoughts and actions combine for the betterment of the human spirit. She explores stretching the traditional idea of letterforms by using colour planes,, body movement, fragmentation, collage, etc. and create word paintings. She graduated with a MA degree in Design and worked making an IBM exhibition for Charles Eames, auto convention exhibits for Mazda Motors, many computer brochures and manuals, health food packaging, etc. After…

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. I also work as a…

Tim Huitson

I have been painting for many decades but have only recently exhibited to a wider public. Previously, exhibitions and sales were at my home and garden studio on Shoreham Beach. Formal artistic education since school started with the Aesthetics course at university and since then continued with lengthy one-to-one contact with artists who have developed specific techniques. The canvases mainly inhabit an area in the interstices between pure abstract and representations of lands…

Tony Day

Photography, illustration and digital manipulation.

Val Chandler

Living on the coast at Shoreham I find water a great inspiration for many of my paintings. I have been painting for 10 years and enjoy experimenting with different applications of watercolour, including the unconventional technique of using watercolour on canvas. I am a full member of the Association of Sussex Artists and show my work regularly in various exhibitions locally.

Susanne Hopkinson

I work mainly in watercolour and pen although I have dabbled in pencil crayon and pastels, with the odd foray into oils.  I have lived in Sussex for over twenty years and feel that the Downs have a special place in my paintings , hence the multitude of sheep.  There is a rather illustrative edge to my painting and sometimes I venture beyond what I see and instead use my imagination . Hence the paintings of ladies with dogs or the exuberant floral depictions. My Shop Seasonal…

Susan Pennock

Much of my subject matter is taken from the natural and urban landscape around me, the places I have encountered. I have always been interested in buildings, their interior and architectural details, their place in the landscape and the associations we have with them I usually begin a drawing upon a ground of dark pigment so that I can emphasise tonal contrasts and gradually lighten areas of the composition to create form and add detail. I love the atmospheric effects that a…

Sylvie Howitt

Papercuts on vintage maps and music sheets My choice of vintage maps and music sheet is as much a part of my inspiration helping me to tell new stories and bring new life to a piece of paper lost in a box or destined for the dump. Over the years, maps and music sheets have rekindled memories from numerous customers, the paper and the story unlocking that first kiss, memory of that day out or a simple future dream. Each story starts life as a freehand drawing before i cut the…

Teresa Martin

I enjoy the challenge of making new solid forms from various powdered and liquid substances, both natural and man made. This is achieved by my adaptation of the casting process. The materials have a fresh existence and a new structure. There is a strong sense of game playing in this process. I set certain rules but much is left to chance and rapid decisions are needed to guide the emergence of the eventual piece. Its working with and against Nature. The rhythmic manipulation…

Terry Guile

I design and make contemporary silver and enamelled jewellery. The pieces are made using either silver sheet or wire which I texture and form into the finished article. Although my jewellery is contemporary I use traditional methods when making each item. I use semi precious stones and pearls which I personally select from first class suppliers. My jewellery may be purchased from The Shoreham Art Gallery, 27 Brunswick Road, Shoreham by Sea, West Sussex BN43 5WA or by contacti…

Sue Collins

Using a combination of photography and sketching, as well as drawing on her own personal experiences and memories, Sue creates images which are primarily of Sussex and the surrounding area. She is currently working predominately with lino printing. The linocut work is created usually in a limited edition on acid free paper using good quality printing inks. Each work is titled, signed and numbered by Sue. There may be some variation in colour between the images due to the hand…

Sue Edwards

Handmade books I love books, paper and ink. I also enjoy manipulating paper. This has led me to make notebooks and journals from a variety of hand made papers. I also make books of envelopes called memory keepers for storing mementos of every day life. Anything from bus tickets, and locks of hair to old photographs, objects that hold a special memory for the owner.

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…

Scilla Allen

After leaving school i went to Worthing Art College from there i went to Newport Art College in South Wales where i studied Graphics/Illustration which i really loved. Our teaching was based on really looking and seeing in order to be able to draw really well.   I loved the process of Litho while i was there and although this was difficult to pursue when not at college i have done a course of this taught by a friend at North Star Studios in Brighton. At that time i was doing…

Shirley Trevena

Shirley Trevena has always pushed the boundaries of watercolour and is regarded as one of Britain’s most innovative watercolourists. Shirley breaks the conventional rules of watercolour in many different ways: through her bold compositions, unusual perspectives, fascinating textures an, above all, the strength and vibrancy of her colour combinations. “Since I resigned from my planning job over 25 years ago to become a full-time artist, I have had the most wonderful adventure…

Steve Mason (ArtBySteve)

I have always been tempted to turn ideas into paintings. Following convention I haven’t always taken that path. For years I have been producing paintings that I thought I should produce. Paintings that were traditional and realistic. Now into my second year of a BA (hons) Fine Art degree, I am letting rip. Not just painting but experimenting with sculpture and photography, seeing things, not just in my mind, but seeing things in the environment. Trying different things in dif…

Sarah Bridgland

Whilst on holiday St Ives, I discovered Glass Fusion by Jo Downs. At the time I had just started the Foundation Diploma in Art and Design at West Dean College expecting to specialise in Oil Painting. I booked my first Glass Fusion course with Alex Robinson (now Powell) and fell in love with the medium. I gained my Diploma in 2013 and am now enjoying working in my own studio in the garden. Once I had discovered Glass Fusion I realised how important colour is in my world. I wor…

Sarah Duffield

I try to paint my emotional connection to a landscape rather than a photographic representation. Often the way light is interacting with a landscape dictates the colours I use to describe it – morning light is pink and peach, the earth is often blue and cold while at Sunset the light is red or orange, grass is warmer and colours richer. People have a strong affinity with colour and often don’t realise how closely connected to emotion it is. When someone looks at one of my pai…

Delia Lindon-Spence/Robin Spence

At Art College Robin studied with tutor Jeffrey Camp RA and then had training in Aeronautical Engineering before becoming an Architect – winning many International and National competitions / awards. Robin has twice exhibited at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition.

Rob Mair

I work with different types of clay ranging from porcelain, to clays with course textures. I favour hand building with a preference for slabwork. I make up my own slips and glazes and employ different surface techniques depending on the type of clay used in the construction of the piece.

Naomi Frances

I make sculptural glass landscapes and beach scenes using a collage of found items from the local beaches and semi-precious stones. I aim to make my glass work and my images as textural as possible, combining the physical world with the imagined. Since the subjects of my work tend to live outside, I have been making some larger scale pieces for the garden. I create my illustrations on found papers, like old books and train tickets. I like to work on weathered surfaces, like w…

Neil Wilkinson

My passion for creating figurative sculpture started in my teens, I found the concentration, the quiet environment totally absorbing. This passion remained with me and I returned, whenever possible, to the one area that gave me total peace of mind. Sculpture became an integral part of my life, a second self although my choice of materials has continuously changed and developed. Currently based in Sussex, I have exhibited with the Brighton Sculptors in The Brighton Arts Festiv…

Mervyn Wallis

My most recent work is in stained glass and I am combining my interest in digital media with silk screen printing sand blasting.I begin by selecting a series of images and then with Photoshop adjust tonality contrast etc and convert them into half tone images which can then be transferred to silk screen and printed onto glass.In addition I can use the screens to produce images which can be sand blasted onto the glass.

Melvyn Biddulph

INSPIRATION: everything. BASE MATERIAL: anything that sits still long enough for me to slap paint on it or nail it to a wall. ARTWORK: serious stuff, sad stuff, thinky stuff, but more than anything – happy, silly stuff. SIZE: Any Size. From large works to minuscule. SUBJECTS: Whatever is swimming around in my head at the time. MEDIUM: Anything I can lay my hands on. GENERAL COMMENT: It is really nice, these days, not to worry about what anybody think’s about my work. It took…

Lorna Casey

I work with both lead and copperfoil in making stained glass for domestic doors and windows. Recently I have been developing free-standing designs that work more as sculptures for both indoors and in outdoor/gardens spaces. Coloured and textured glass is so very attractive and I play with decorative ideas in making smaller items such as candelholders, hangings and standing birds. In 2012 I designed a piece for St Mary de Haura church art exhibition based on the theme of Celeb…

Lizzie Lee

I graduated from the University of Brighton in 2000 with a BA in 3-Dimensional Craft, where I experimented with techniques for recycling plastic. My work then was using mainly colourful plastic (from milk bottle tops) fused with fruit and vegetable nettings, and I won the university’s Innovation Award for the process. I later became interested in the delicacy of the actual milk bottles and started fusing them with lace and net curtains. The shades are made from fragments of l…

Karin Hay White

Most of my work is based on inspiration from modernist architecture and industrial design.Also I`m interested in the contrast between rural and the urban landscape. I use geometry, colour and form to explore the tension between pure abstraction and pictorial representation. My work is held in private collections both in UK and abroad. Saatchi Art Collection “Best of 2015” London Design Fair 2017, Saatchi Art & Samsung presenting “The Frame” Education : Brighton University…

Katherine Lawrie

From an early age Katherine has been familiar with the techniques involved in making jewellery and working with metal. Her father works as a jewellery designer maker and often Katherine would work alongside him in his workshop.

Kim Adele Fuller

I live on the Sussex coast in Shoreham by sea and paint seascapes, landscapes, coastal and abstract themes. I am inspired by the ever-changing nature of the sea and the sky that surround me and try to reflect this in my paintings. I particularly enjoy the dramatic, yet transient effects of atmosphere and light and liberating feeling of the space and tranquility of the shoreline. I work primarily in watercolour as I feel it has a translucency and vibrancy hard to match in any…

Kore Sage

Mixed media and Powertex paintings In 2017, the use of Powertex universal medium evolved textured abstract landscapes into new highly textured paintings with the inclusion of upcycled and natural materials. Kore is a Certified Powertex Tutor and member  of the 2018 Powertex UK Design Team.

John Stanley-Clamp

Having studied textile design at art school and at The Royal College of Art, I found that the design aspect helped me in my future jobs. The first one was as the artist at Harrods, followed by designing window displays and exhibitions for Kodak and eventually as Art Director for graphic design at Conrans. After a varied period of freelance work, including photography, in London I moved in to teaching and running the department of visual communications at Northbrook College. M…

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…

Hilary Stirling

I am a potter working in high-fired stoneware. My ceramic work is organic and reflects the shapes and textures of the beaches and Downs of Sussex. I make dishes and bowls but my preference is for landscape and seascape plaques which depict scenes of Sussex. I fire to 12.60 degrees centigrade and make all my own glazes using wood ash to which I add re-cycled glass. My clay is a blend of local Sussex clay which give the body a rustic, organic finish. I give talks across East an…

Gillian Hills

I work with a variety of materials. I paint in oils, acrylics and various types of ink. I collect bits and pieces from the beach, natural and man made and often incorporate these in collages and mosaics. Some of my work reflects my travels but mostly it is inspired by the animals, plants and landscapes that surround me.

Hala Sabet

My work explores the simplicity of Geometry in its broader sense, examining how to stretch its boundaries and break its rules to create sculptural structures and paintings based on this conflict between order and chaos whilst retaining a sense of harmony.

Denise Collins

Painting and textiles

Elaine Bellamy

I create mosaics from china ornaments and crockery, which I find in car boot sales, charity shops and antique shops. Sometimes I use family heirloom crockery when making a piece for a family member. The pieces vary in size and complexity. I am happy to take commissions, although all the designs are individual and depend on what I find on my travels. However, any favourite elements you have can be included.

Frans de Leij

I did not go to art school – in fact, I trained as a biologist at the University of Wageningen (The Netherlands). Although, I am a self-taught painter, I have gained a lot of inspiration from the work of other artists, notably from impressionist water-colourists like Edward Seago, John Yardley, Edward Wesson, Nina Engle and Trevor Chamberlain. The work of these painters breathes an air of directness and freshness that is so attractive about watercolour and almost impossible t…

David Stringer

Another Slice Multi medium canvases

Deborah Fleming

I have always been interested in painting and colour. So after doing a foundation course in art and various other courses I took painting more seriously and also took classes in stained glass using copperfoil technique. I have got my inspiration from various artists over the years but as I am a Christian, I am inspired by God’s creation around me. I am always developing my art in both my painting and my glass work, exploring new ways to do things and to express my love of nat…

Chris Dawson

Creativity is a key factor in all my work either as a product designer (my original trade), cartoonist or fine artist. As an artist, I simply paint for my own interest and pleasure and try to create something that people will enjoy and respond to. No subject is safe – a landscape, the human figure, a bunch of flowers. To this I will often include some form of creativity and produce something that is different and thought-provoking. Humour is also an inspiration. All paintings…

Chris Howitt

I have been working with stained glass for about fifteen years. Initially I went on a one year further education glass where I learned the basics of leaded glass. Following that I went on to work with glass by myself, showing in Adur Art Trail and working on commissions for stained glass panels and windows, until I was persuaded by Sue Wallis to enrol on her stained glass course. Sue was a highly creative and talented artist who was passionate about glass and equally passiona…

Christine Lloyd Walker
