Mixed Media

Candy Medusa

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.

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 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…

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…

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 am a mixed media artist and Powertex tutor. I use Powertex Universal Medium, acrylic and other media to create textured art, including textiles, wood and rust. The local coastline, in particular the West Pier structures and seasonal beach skies inspire my paintings and textures. The energy of the coastal weather features a lot in my work this year. Powertex Universal Medium was originally developed as a fabric hardener for sculpture. It has strong adhesive properties for us…

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. 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…

Winter Land (oil pastel, gouache)

My subject matter is inspired by natural and urban landscape, the elements within these, the way they change over time, and associations we have with them through experience and observation. I often begin a piece of work on a prepared ground of dark pigment to emphasise tonal contrasts, gradually lightening areas of the composition to create form and add detail – adding and removing material is intrinsic to the subject itself and the composition.   I studied a Fine Art degree…

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.
