We work mainly in oils but one of our artists works with Charcoal as well.
We have had Tutors from time to time, mostly when those tutors can come to us on a Thursday evening, We do however try to explore all sorts, as we find painting is a longtime learning curve.

I create nature inspired paintings on canvas, which are also available as limited-edition prints. I work predominantly with acrylic paint and inks, alternating between soft impressionistic botanical landscapes and large colourful florals. I enjoy experimenting and playing with the accidental and random effects that occur, when working with ink and water.
People often say my work is dreamy and calming, and I like to think I am bringing the gentle beauty of nature into people’s homes and hearts.
