Oils

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…

Judy Alexander

Judy studied art all her life even though her profession was as a rehab consultant in brain injury. In the late 90’s she studied textiles culminating in a 5 year diploma courses in art and design and advanced machine embroidery. She often incorporates textile with her paintings. She paints at her studio in Brighton and Vancouver Canada where she and her husband divide their time. This piece, Wind Blown Poppies,  is painted with stitching and layered textiles. It is 12 by 16 i…

Jules Wheeler

Having dabbled unconvincingly for a few years, I started painting in earnest in 2018 when I took a part time adult learning course. I discovered I had a little talent and a lot of passion so have continued from there. Starting off with acrylics, I took the leap into oils a few months ago and absolutely love them. I am still experimenting a lot and discovering myself as an artist, but I really enjoy portraits and unusual close ups.

Tipping Point

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

"Sompting Poppy fields" Oil oncanvas 150cm W x 100cm H

I live in Ferring, West Sussex and am constantly inspired by my surroundings. I’m often on the beach with my dogs where I love to see the variety of birds on the shoreline. Surrounded as we are with farmland, with the fields going right down to the sea at the Goring gap, and with Highdown Hill being the first thing I see each morning, it was a natural progression from painting the Figure to painting the Landscape. This September I will be having my first Solo Show of Landscap…

Christmas Decorations at Standen House Oil 40 cms. x40 cms.

I am happiest when I am in the country by a lake or river or knocking about in a small harbour with old fishing boats.      Having been painting for some twenty five years I have  taken inspiration from the many books that I have acquired very often about the impressionists, landscapes, seascapes or still life.       In my working life I was a production engineer making small parts for many industries so my mind tends towards the figurative side of art, I don’t even pretend t…

"All the way there and back again" Part 2

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…

Darcie, Oil paint on Canvas

My work as an artist falls within the mediums of paint and drawing. I am an emotional artist and all of my work is from an emotional experience. I like to romanticise my work and create work to be pleasing to the eye. However I do touch upon Surrealism when an event has created a change within my emotional state which compels myself to capture this within art. Working within the boundaries of Realism I flourish and my creative mind likes to explore the world around us, photog…

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…

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.  

Sea Spray  pastel

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…

Worthing Beach

Painting is my way of expressing feelings about places, people and personal thoughts that are difficult to put in words. I am fascinated by the human story, our diversity, journeys and dreams. Spontaneous mark-making releases images from my subconscious and imagination, creating semi-abstracts with atmospheres populated by fragments of memory or universal myths. I enjoy drawing from life and creating reflections of landscapes, illuminated by light, impressions of scenes withi…
