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…

Moira Houston

I was first fascinated by the story of Michael Angelo when I was only about 10years old and the idea that the sculpture could be hidden in the stone. In my 30’s I started to explore life drawing classes with teachers inspired by the visionary artist Cecil Collins which gave ways to ‘let go’ and allow something beyond your day-to-day self to be expressed in drawing. I eventually I found that stone as a medium resonated with me very deeply. It took me to contact a different dim…

Caroline Halliday

Social and political implications cannot be detached from objects. I am interested in how I can re-arrange the ‘thing’, so its symbolic connotations emerge or are contradicted. My work combines sculpture, paint and installation, and can be both formal and visceral, anarchic and structured, irreverent and challenging. I take objects to pieces or cut them with a jigsaw -chairs, drawers, earth, ironing boards, books, language, fairy tales, and filmic images/text- and questioning…

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…

Amanda Clayton

Contemporary artist and art teacher born in Bristol, residing in Yatton, North Somerset until the age of 21. Since then I have pretty much have lived north, south, east and west in the UK. Now working in Surrey and living in West Sussex, I aim to focus more of my time on my own art practice which I know will continue to positively impact my classroom teaching.

Jen Green
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.

Sue Gill
Sue Gill

Sue is inspired by the local environment to create vibrant emroideries and watercolours.

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,…

I am inspired by the beauty in everyday life, nature and the moments we share. I enjoy experimenting with multiple media. I like playing with light, colour and texture to explore the relationship between what is seen and what the mind perceives. Instagram: beautyoutsidethelines

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…

Dr aRt (Rachel Rankin-Hayward)

Rachel is a professional musician who has been developing her artistic practice as a potter for two years studying with Roberto Gagliano and Carina Ciscato.

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…

Ted Young
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.

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…

Jo-Anna Rawlings

Jo-Anna Rawlings 3D Fiber Artist JAB IT TO LIFE I live and grew up on the Sussex coast, I have studied art textiles and design at university and enjoy creating unique handcrafted goods. I always try to evolve and bring my sculptures to life. Each sculpture is made of 100% cleaned raw wool, I first study the animal, draw them, understand the skeleton form which represents a wire armature, then wrapping and building its form with wool. I jab it to life. This process from start…

Jo Delafons

I aim to create ephemeral sculptures that evoke feelings, memories, a sense of history and place. My current work is the result of time spent walking, drawing and intently looking at the rusting hulls and fragile jetties of Shoreham Riverbank. I combine materials found on location with paper, wire and mixed media. I try to convey a sense of lightness, and often, an impression that the work is rising up or being held aloft in space, reflecting the way my spirits lift here. My…

Anne Davison

Mixed Media – mainly from imagination

Malcolm Hardy

Malcom Hardy has lived and worked on the South Coast,  where he has for many years owned Artists and Framers Gallery in East Street Shoreham. Malcolm, I am sure, that, in common with many other Artists he has a wide (self taught) education and general knowledge. Not only of art but many other topics. He has a great passion for people, and loves to debate, discuss and deliberate on most subjects. I believe that this is why the little Gallery in East Street, Shoreham, that he h…

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.

Shoreham Pottery

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…

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…

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…

Julia Ann Field

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

Wenche Fagerheim

I was born and grew up north of the Polar Circle in Norway. The contrasts of this special environment; the dark blue sparkling winters with northern light dancing passionately above us, and the light pastel colored summers when the sun never goes down, have influenced my work a great deal. I moved to England in 2006 to study BA in Fine Art, Painting, which I completed in 2009. I was based in West Sussex until beginning of 2017. I now live and work in Harstad, Northern Norway….

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

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…

Tina took up painting after retiring from a career in marketing and public relations, promoting fashion and the arts in London and Sussex. She has lived in Brighton for 47 years and exhibits her work in exhibitions and galleries throughout Sussex. She uses a variety of mediums including acrylic, gouache, pastel and oil.

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. Some aspects of the process resemble the 3D painting of form with opaque and transparent colour inside a mould and also drawing in space with form through the passage of time. There is a strong sense of game playing in this process. I set certa…

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…

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…

Sarah Money

Sarah Money BA (Hons) Sculptor I work predominantly with Crank Clay, which has a gritty texture to it.I like this clay because it allows me to sculpt in a loose style. The process, once I have completed sculpting, involves hollowing out and drying the piece, and then biscuit firing in the kiln. The sculpture is then glazed and stone fired.The aim of this process is to produce a glazed piece with some of the burnt stone fired clay showing through. Sometimes, after stone firing…

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 Carroll

Idiosyncratic images of Sussex from a local artist.

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…

Roger George Deller

I was born in a lunatic asylum in the middle of an air raid. The Luftwaffe had bombed the maternity hospital but spared the asylum fortuitously giving refuge to my desperate mother. We spent the next six months living on platform two of Moorgate Tube Station. The V1s drove us out of London and we evacuated ourselves to the safety of North Wales. Respite, then the V2’s struck, silent and insidious harbingers of evil. Again we fled, this time to an isolated farm somewhere in So…

His painting career flourished in his seventies and early eighties, driven by personal experiences and the constant awareness of the changing energies of the elements to make impressionistic and dynamic images. He…

Rachel Thomas

I create simple functional pieces with an emphasis on simplicity of form, organic in inspiration, with a special handmade quality that makes each piece unique. My ceramics are handmade in small batches and I produce a few small collections a year.I am drawn to simple forms and the beauty of the imperfect. I have an interest in surface texture and keep glazes simple, often white. I work mainly with earthenware and stoneware, sometimes distorting a too-perfect form, or marking…

Ricardo Purnell

I’ve been a photographer most of my life and half way through I took to creative writing. I combined the two creative processes this year with poetry inspired by photography in the form of the photobook “Near the Water” launched during the Brighton Festival 2015 which is now for sale at City Books Brighton, Magazine Brighton, and The Royal Pavillion Shop. All photography is for sale as mounted prints or canvas, framing options available, as well as framed photography poetry c…

Robert A Ford

I am interested in social issues and create work which addresses subjects that affect humanity.My work is very varied in use of different mediums 2D, 3D, and spoken word, I often include text in and on my art.I construct my paintings in a long and laborious fashion, often making prints from the first effort and then working on them more. Nearly all my paintings are available as originals or as Giclee prints which reproduce extremely well and are often difficult to distinguish…

A member of Attic Club. Work created for both interior &exterior display  in a range of manageable size and affordable price. A regular exhib…

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 in Brecon, South Wales in The Six Artists Exhibition, w…

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.

Michael Windross

I was born in Carlisle in 1942. From 1952-1956 I was a chorister of St. Paul`s Cathedral. It so happened that the wife of the headmaster of the choir school was a well-known artist, Eileen Price (SWA) and for the whole of this time I had what amounted to private tuition from her. At Lancing I took art A-level two years early with a view to going to art school. This did not happen. Instead I went to Cambridge and my art totally stopped. In 1964 I went to live in Antwerp and em…

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…

Louise Durham

Louise makes beautiful sculptures combining vibrant stained glass with the textures and durability of reclaimed groyne timber. They add colour and focus to any garden and are stunning indoors when backlit.

Malcolm Gillespie

Malcolm is overwhelmed by the energy of life, the powerful need of creatures, plants to exist. Birth, sex, death, everything that powers life. He loves oil colour on a canvas, the smell, the way it’s moved with a hog hair brush. He loves the richness of the earth colours but not exclusively. Malcolm has always painted as much as time would allow, since he was about 5 years old. In many ways the most significant experience was seeing the film The Horses Mouth when he was about…

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.

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 work primarily in watercolour as I feel it has a translucency and vibrancy hard to match in any…
