Hidden reasures

Stephanie originally trained as a ceramicist. For the past 6 years, she has worked as a stone carver and sculptor. Her magnificent work in stone is a rhythmic meditative process, creating shapes inspired by the geometric and organic forms in nature.

These highly atmospheric, abstracted landscapes are all about the raw elements, with fleeting light, ever-changing showers and mists, stillness and breezes. They are places for reflection, escapism and contemplation.

Dorothy is a highly skilled designer-maker. Natural fibres have always been a vital part of her inspiration. For the past fifteen years, she has worked closely with the silk and cotton producers and weavers in South East Asia. This has vastly enriched her sense of design.

Kitty Garland has a degree in textile design and has always loved painting. She can be inspired by dipping Cotswold valleys, a bunch of flowers, or a strong stone arch. It is her reaction that determines whether a painting will be abstract or realistic.

Tin’s paintings communicate the light and atmosphere of a landscape using the quantity and texture of the paint itself. From close up, the pictures are about the luscious quality of the paint, but when viewed from a distance, the image becomes vibrant, strong and clear.

Many different materials and techniques are used in Corinne’s work which is inspired by the local landscape or historical artefacts. All is underpinned by drawing and preparatory artwork. The pieces are often figurative and she particularly likes the challenge of producing 3D.

Karen Camkin’s work is all about the seasonal changes of the land near her home. The varying moods, the shapes and unusual structures exposed by dead vegetation over winter have led to this delightful new body of work, aptly entitled Portrait of a Place.
