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  Read More →

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 ofRead More →

I am a Shropshire born and bred contemporary abstract artist working mainly in acrylic and oil pastels. I use a process of building up and scraping back layers of paint and mixed media. Having left full time employment behind, I now have more time to dedicate to my love of painting exploring the balance of colours and textures.

I believe act of looking is a complex psychological process; my paintings explore looking and making connections with people and places. Looking whilst mark making generates interactions with memories and stories this then effects the looking. My desired goal is to inspire those who see my work to connect with the process of looking, being emotionally open, reflecting and noticing. I’ve always communicated throughRead More →

I’ve been painting, on and off, for over 40 years. I like to describe myself as an eclectic artist, as I am constantly experimenting with new techniques, styles and media. However, one enduring theme of much of my work has been the built and natural environment of the Ironbridge Gorge and the surrounding area, and I have several works o this theme. Prices of my work vary from £35 – £200 Acrylic, Oils and Watercolour impressionist, abstract or sometimes a little surreal.   https://ironbridgesteve.wixsite.com/stevevaughanartwork https://www.facebook.com/SteveVaughanArtwork/ Dale End Park Heart of the forrest.

I just love paint. And I love to travel. And to teach other people to paint. That’s it really. In recent years I have studied with master painters from Italy and the USA, all the time searching for traditional skills and methods which can be applied to paintings of a modern world. I give workshops and classes on various aspects of drawing and painting and also painting holidays for those who want to work outside the studio. I have always been a painter, I graduated with a BA Hons in Fine Art Painting and later studied for a teaching certificate specialising in post 16 education.
