New Paintings by Paula Sharples
It's always a delight to get new paintings from Paula.
She works on gesso prepared board with acrylics, ink and graphite in layers and uses a combination of still life with landscape background. Her use of colour and pattern is evidence of her past in textile and ceramic design.
The coast is a constant inspiration and Cornwall and Devon feature heavily in her paintings.
New Paintings by Lesley Birch
Inspired by wild and remote places, Lesley's paintings are notable for their colour, atmosphere and expressive marks. She aims for semi-abstraction, but still retains that recognisable feeling of place.
"I love moody skies and windy weather - and I always take my sketchbook with me" she says.
Lesley was a winner of The Artist Magazine Award in 2016. She paints from both her home and city studios in York.
New Paintings by Lucy Young
Don't miss Lucy's wonderful new collection!
Her paintings are inspired by the joy of coastal living with all its treasures from its bobbing boats to its cheeky seagulls. She loves to capture those special moments we all cherish when by the seaside like eating chips or ice cream, building sandcastles or dipping your toes in the surf.
"I want to uplift you with my naive style and if I can bring a smile to your face then I’m happy."
Linocuts by Richard Shimell
Richard started printmaking late in life. After a career in journalism, he joined the Dartington Printmaking Workshop as a complete beginner in 2010. It was a steep learning curve but he persevered and became a member of the Devon Guild of Craftsmen in 2016.
He lives on the edge of Dartmoor in a landscape full of stunning trees so he doesn’t have to go far to find ideas for prints.
New Paintings by Chris Forsey
Chris loves to explore the theme of the man-made alongside the organic. He tries to capture the sense of a place at a specific moment, season or time of day.
He creates textured layers of colour that allow hints of complementary hue to glow through, thus creating an exciting surface of scattered, broken colour.
Chris is an elected member of The Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour (RI) and The Society of Graphic Fine Art (SGFA).
