Anna Fitzgerald

Exmouth Artist Anna, paints stunning foxes and wild wolves. She works with resin, ink, acrylic and oils. Inspired by the beautiful Devon scenery and stunning sunsets she adds bright vivid colours to her original art.

East Devon is a beautiful location for an artist with its sandy beaches and open skies and wild moorland. Each painting holds a story.  It could be a childhood memory or English folklore.

Sophie Galliers

I was born in Shropshire and graduated from Newcastle University in 1996 with a degree in fine art, after specialising in mixed media painting. Since that time I’ve continued to paint part-time while working within art education, firstly in the Midlands and then in the South West where I’m currently based. However, now able to concentrate full-time on my work, I am seeking to develop my technique and explore the themes within my painting in greater depth.

My subjects include both the rural beauty of the landscape around me in England and Wales, and the exploration of the natural world at a microscopic, cellular level.

Andrew Gallop

Andrew lives in the Chew Valley, Somerset and enjoys walking – particularly over the Mendip Hills, Dartmoor and along the Cornish Coastal Path. This type of terrain, through all seasons, provides the subject matter for his paintings.

He tries to capture the feeling of being part of these open landscapes and so describing the space, the weather and the light is as important to him as the topography.

Jan Gay

Inspiration can come from many sources, but essentially the common threads are my use of rich colour and strong compositions.

I work in my studio in Solihull and enjoy involvement with a number of art organisations. I am a member of the RBSA, a committee member of the Birmingham & Midland Pastel Society and a member of Solihull Artists Forum.

Fran Hale

As a child my brother and I were bundled into the sidecar of my Dads motor bike and whisked off to a magical place called the seaside. This began my life-long love of the British seaside holiday and all the fun and joy that comes with it.

For years I have had to satisfy myself with photography until Christmas 2012 when I thought now or never and picked up a paint brush and had a go. To my surprise I found that I had so many ideas floating about in my head that I just had to get them out.

My paintings are all about bright colour and life.

I hope you enjoy looking at them as much as I enjoyed painting them and maybe have a little chuckle.

Tanya Hinton

I was brought up in a very creative 'Bohemian' household. My father was an artist, who established a highly successful business, sculpting and manufacturing model soldiers. Under his guidance, I learned about handling paint, colour mixing and attention to detail at a very early age. My mother was an artist’s model and many creative friends of my parents would visit.

 Since then, I have always been involved in creative work: painting, ceramics and as an artists' model myself.

Having painted on canvas for many years, I discovered working on wood around six years ago and have not looked back. Each piece is a ready-made landscape. I take the wood, see the landscape presented and paint what I feel is appropriate for the wood. A habitat for a wild and beautiful animal.

Whilst many of the creatures I paint are British, I am increasingly inspired by the Arctic and by Norse legends.

Peter Howe

Peter was born in Somerset, and studied at the West of England College of Art. Throughout his working life in design and advertising agencies he still continued to paint in my spare time. He paints mainly landscapes and seascapes in oils. His work has been exhibited in the home counties, London, Europe, America and on many charitable occasions.

In 2005, his work was selected from 10,000 artists worldwide to be one of the launching artists for a new gallery in the USA.

John has painted with watercolours since childhood. He studied Fine Art at Hammersmith College in London and later Graphic Design at Reigate College of Art.

Relocating to the West Country in the late eighties, he taught at Millfield Summer School, The Blue School, and Strode College. John now lives in Wookey Hole, near Wells, He mainly paints in the evocative Somerset Levels and Mendip Hills, preferring a direct plein-air approach and aiming to capture a sense of immediacy and place.

John has been a very successful artist exhibiting in solo, group and open exhibitions. Last Autumn John received national recognition winning first prize in the Sunday Times watercolour competition.

Mike Jackson

Based in South Somerset, Mike Jackson has a passion for creating funny pictures. Mike Jackson was greatly inspired by LS Lowry, influenced mainly because he was a friend of his Grandfather. His ideas come mainly when he is out driving, and thinking about quirky little images to paint.
