2018 series || U N T I T L E D || mixed media on board Painting and drawing onto MDF, glass, metal and other found objects allows the materials to behave in a variety of ways. Applying paint, scratching away, adding more and removing some, creates a repetitive, cathartic process until a balanced outcome is achieved. Much like the physical process of the installations (which can be seen on the website) the work is documented throughout using photography. In addition to visual elements, text is used in response to a variety of subjects. Some refers to a found diary from childhood, as does the naivety of repeated shapes. www.charlottebillingham.co.uk Instagram: @charlottebillingham.art Contact via website
I graduated from Staffordshire University with a BA(Hons) in Graphic Design. I currently work at Madeley Academy teaching Art. Whilst I enjoy a variety of mediums in art, I especially enjoy using drypoint etching and mixed media to create prints that include strong line, bright colour and texture. I enjoy experimenting with working on different papers and fabric as this affects the media used in the print. I usually focus on portrait (human or animal) but I have also done still life and landscapes. I work from images that catch my attention due to colour or composition and allow me to use a range of
I am interested in nature and animals and the relationship between animals and humans that so often pushes animals to one side. Britain and of course Shropshire are rich with native wildlife; animal lives who live alongside us but also struggle to survive when human paths cross theirs. I am fascinated by the universe and concepts of interconnectedness, how we connect with the universe, each other and the animal kin on our planet, our environment and the trouble it is in. I often work with pencil and pen and ink, I love the immediacy and spontaneity of these media. I also work with digital tools
I am an illustrator specialising in storytelling and folklore themes What I do I work for the History press and individual storytellers to make visible and bring to life characters and themes from the rich oral tradition of both this country and places further afield What inspires me I am inspired by stories and the way they speak to our hearts as well as our experience of the world. also the natural (and the supernatural) world I inhabit and which also inhabits me Why I do it I have a wish to show others what I can see when I close my eyes and listen
“A natural Artist, I have always had a dedication towards drawing with descriptive line being my strong point. I went on to predominantly use and gain some proficiency with Watercolours before being introduced to and learning how to use Digital media with which I can emulate natural Media like Watercolour, Oils, Acrylic and pencil marks. Working with software on a computer allows the Artist to take their work further depending on their own personal vision. I have specialised in creating 3D characters in a program called Blender which is well supported and is free to download”. email email@example.com

I trained as a textile designer (C&G) for 4 years followed by BA Arts degree at Wolverhampton. Worked as Art lecturer at Wolverhampton. I set up my retail business 16 years ago and have continued to sell my own work but now have more time to dedicate to my art. Much of my work is inspired by my travels and landscape plays a big part. My paintings are usually acrylic but often have the addition of textiles. My studio is in Fusion at The Tile Museum, Jackfield.
My preferred medium is ink but I also work in pastel, pencil and mixed media. My work covers a broad range of subjects, from places to peacocks. Through texture and detail, I aim to depict mood and atmosphere. instagram – https://www.instagram.com/sambrettatkin
I have always enjoyed painting and have now also taken up sculpting in clay which i find both exciting and relaxing! My work is usually based on wildlife which is very dear to my heart and never ceases to give me such pleasure to see. I hope i capture some of this in both my 2D and 3D work. I have also recently started paint dancers in acrylics and watercolour – trying to show their grace and movement . email@example.com

I moved to Madeley 20 Years ago and was immediately struck by the wealth of living history all around us. The gorge is full of fascinating glimpses of our industrial heritage which is the main focus of my work. I love wandering around the local Museums and trying to capture a glimpse of a world that is rapidly disappearing. I mainly work in monotones ink with a traditional dip pen or graphite with the occasional dabble into livelier coloured acrylics. I have had work displayed at Weston Park Gallery, Bear steps Gallery Shrewsbury, and locally and I split my time between trying to capture
