Mixed Media

Serious Business

Annie Hargreaves gained her degree in Ceramics at Camberwell College of Art, but retrained as a Scenic Artist at RADA twenty odd years ago and has never looked back. The process based nature of scene painting (you have to build up in layers if you’re working on an enormous scale) informs the way she creates, even in tiny works. Her inspiration comes from the small, creased family photos of mid century working class life she spent hours looking at as a child. In using encausti…

Candy Medusa

Candy Medusa is an artist, illustrator, marine biologist and loudmouth, constantly confused as to why artists’ statements are supposed to be in the third person. Specialising in digital media, pen and ink, mixed media and upcycling, she draws much of her inspiration from nature and is passionate about the environment. She mostly makes art between midnight and 4am when the kids are asleep. Candy has exhibited locally, nationally and internationally, including with the Royal So…

I’m a mystery artist. It’s always a mystery to me, as to what will appear when starting a new piece of artwork! On the rare occasion, I might have a clue as to what the subject might be. Usually, it starts with a daub of something, in fact, anything that is liquid or spreadable. I will do a run of 6 to 8 type of art, then it stops, never to be replicated. It just flows out,  without any thought. I’m currently trying my hand at lino prints, and loving it.

Winter, Storr, Skye, pastel

I have always been interested in painting and colour. 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. More recently I have moved into mixed media, exploring textures and colours. I have exhibited in the Brighton Artists Open Houses from 2005 to 2013, in the August arts festival at Shoreham Methodist Church, and at other venues.

Eleonora Medwell

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. I loved to draw when I was a child but painting became my passion just three years ago, when I started to paint nearly every day.  I inspired by the beauty of nature, people’s faces, mixed media and art works of other artists. I get inspiration from the nature, faces, mixed media and art works of other artist…

Fragments. Abstract depicting how when many things work towards a whole.

Painting is the language I use to express myself. As a creative activity, it is the most absorbing. I paint with acrylics mainly. 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 Open House exhib…

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…

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…

The Wave 24" x 30" mixed media on deep canvas, unframed, by Kore Sage

I use mixed media, acrylic and Powertex medium with natural materials to create textured art. The local coastline, in particular the West Pier structures and seasonal beach skies inspire my paintings and textures. The energy of the coastal weather has featured a lot in my work this last year. Powertex Universal Medium was originally developed as a fabric hardener for sculpture. It has strong adhesive properties for use in mixed media art and I use it combined with other mediu…

Big red pepper

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.

At that time i was doing…

Garden Seat

For 2021 Steve is working on a collection of  mixed media paintings and that focus on everyday items and surroundings that involves him personally. Important nothings. It is a collection of bold and colourful modern artworks, a visual diary that makes the mundane and unremarkable both remarkable and interesting. Working mainly from photographs, the artworks are painted in acrylics with the bold black outlines that have become a feature of the artist’s work, and in some artwor…

Winter Land (oil pastel, gouache)

The urban and natural environment is my subject matter and drawing is the medium I mainly work in, along with printmaking and works on paper incorporating elements like collage and stitched detail. I studied a fine art degree in Edinburgh and since then have continued to make and show artwork, taking part in group exhibitions across Sussex.

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.
