"Very clever and beautiful." BBC News "Blurring the boundaries of painting and sculpture." The Guardian "Teather's works frequently wrenches us back and forth through time and style; As we are shifted between romanticism and classicism we are left entranced, entertained and certainly captivated by the uncertainties." Neil Powell, Academic/ Curator

"I have been a printmaker for thirty years initially establishing a studio in Totnes Devon. On moving to Norfolk in 2002 I established my practice here but continued to exhibit in the South-West and other parts of the UK. My imagery has developed from mainly landscape etchings to work with collaged plates examining the built environment in a more abstracted way. Group shows and open exhibitions since moving to Norfolk include Eastern Open (WEG prizewinner twice), Castle Museum "Vision and Reality" & "Inspired by Birds", NCAS Opens at The Forum 2010 & 14, Salthouse and Cley North Norfolk Exhibition Project shows 2005-2014."

Howard Temperley’s switch from academic history to computer graphics has been compared to the transition from caterpillar to butterfly. Although he dismisses the comparison, it has, as he freely admits, been a liberating experience. It has also been a source of much astonishment, not least to himself.
Jerry and Andrea Shearing both trained at Eastbourne School of Art. Jerry went on the Central School of Art and Andrea to Edinburgh College of Art. Jerry studied pianting and illustration whilst Andrea studied painting and sculpture. They both share a passion for interpreting nature.
Jerry's work is about expressing our natural environment, physically and spiritually. He paints on location in forests,mountains or by rivers, lakes and seashores. He endeavours to capture the power of sunshine, wind, rain, mists and my reactions to light, colour, texture and smell. He uses natural body rhythms to orchestrate brushstrokes and a simple primary palette which he allows to freely mix on the canvas. Andrea's mission explores the emotional symbolism of my subject matter she is currently working on sea paintings in which the movement of the ocean waves express the rhythm of life, the force and strength of nature. Its turbulence and calm reflect our inner world. Following the ebb and flow of froth on the surface helps to read the moods of the deeper waters. She is interested in exploring the fluidity of water against the firm resistance of hard rock. Her most recent work; ‘Falling Water’ combines the energy from the fountain of happiness and light with the deep inner sadness from the darker side of night. Andrea and Jerry have a studio in Firle, East Sussex, a studio in Bergerac, France and a vintage French fire engine they have converted into a mobile studio. Their current project is painting the English and French coasts and waterfalls.
"I live and work in Suffolk and studied Printmaking, Ceramics and Composition of art at Colchester and Suffolk Colleges before deciding on my chosen route of painting. I like to express myself quickly and find painting the most satisfying way to do this.
I mainly paint from my imagination preferring to work in oils on canvas or board. The paintings I am working on at the moment are a series of expressive portrait heads, some are based on famous artists. I also paint more decorative images of abstracted flowers."
Self-taught oil painter, based in the United Kingdom. "Painting ignites a spirit within me for exploring the outer and inner worlds. How we interact with one another, how we analyse and portray ourselves. I aspire to create work which stirs emotions within the viewer. I have exhibited in Central Europe and in the United States during 2017, and will continue to tour in 2018."
" I am a Suffolk based artist. I live on a farm near Halesworth where I have my studio, and run a Livery Stables with my wife Annette. I have an MA in Fine art from the university of Suffolk and am interested in using art as a method of communicating issues concerning our countryside, conservation and rural communities."
"I was born in 1962. I have been working as a professional artist since 1987. My work was previously exhibited in my own dedicated galleries in Guildford, Surrey, England (1987-2012) and Kings Road, Chelsea, England (2000-2005). In 2012 I decided to spend more time dealing with clients individually rather than in a retail gallery environment. I supplied galleries throughout the UK and the US (1990-2010) and exhibited at art fairs; London (Design Centre), Manchester, Dublin, Newcastle and the Affordable Art Fair, as well as the New York Art Expo. My work has been purchased by many individuals, companies and institutions including Tag Airport (Farnborough), Manchester United and HSBC.
I was seen as a child prodigy in my early years always seen as the creative child asked to make or paint everything in school. With no interest from my family, I made my own way making paints from anything, crushing chalk to make white powder paint. During my college years one art tutor, Mrs Epps, pleaded politely for me to attend West Surrey Art College. I had no money and in my mind, no options, I had to work. I proved impatient, radical, basically a nightmare working within a team. Finally in desperation I vented my energy back into art, opening my first gallery on a shoestring in 1987. Since then I have wrestled with an industry which I feel has lost the plot. Too many prints and gimmicks like resin masking the surface and texture of artwork. I fight to be traditional, just me pouring my thoughts onto canvas using simple materials.
I am often asked who interests me. Two that are at the top of my list are the meticulous Richter, full of energy balance with tortured agony of Mark Rothko."
"Formerly a graphic designer, I took up painting about 6 years ago and trained at a traditional style atelier, before undertaking an MFA at UCS. "

Jones studied at Hornsey School of Art in the 60's. Completed a Fine Art BA (Hons) in 2013 at UCS, Ipswich and is now studying for an MA Fine Art at Suffolk University. Landscape, especially with water is a favourite theme which chimes with her love of wild swimming. she also uses memories which begin with a fairly figurative narrative but become enigmatic abstracts as the paint takes over.
"My work is influenced by geometric abstraction, 1960's abstract art, constructivism and pop art. My paintings are hard edged geometric abstraction, on stretched canvas using the media of acrylic."
Tim Platt is an established advertising photographer who lives in Norwich and runs a busy studio in central London. Having worked on many well known commercial brands over the years he is now interested in shooting personal work which is most at home in a frame on a wall. His current work is focussed on creating beautiful stylised studio portraits of creatures from the natural world. He is particularly fascinated by the detail revealed via large format prints. Whether we are looking at the magnified eye of a bullfrog or an eagle captured at several thousandths of a second in mid flight, it is the stillness of these photographs that gives us time to pause and marvel at the wonderful diversity of life on Earth.

Wilson has exhibited throughout East Anglia with several solo shows and some group exhibitions.
Bird says: "I graduated from Norwich School of Art & Design in 2008 with a BA(Hons) in Visual Studies. Currently, I am a practising textile artist at Muspole workshops, Norwich. By using dyed and woven fabric in combination with embroidery my work is often inspired the by feelings and images that literature provokes. I produce abstract images, which literally and metaphorically spring from the canvas."

"My artwork covers a wide range of topics - landscapes, seascapes, wildlife, and flowers. I do not feel inclined to specialise in any one category because almost any subject can contribute to my an interesting creativity. The end result express positive emotions such as joy, happiness and love."
"Painting and creating is an energy that has driven me from earliest memory. It's as strong today as as it was in my earliest memories. My companion that challenges, questions and wrestles with me in every project. Always frustrating with fleeting satisfaction but tempting 'the other me' with a contentment, I have yet to achieve. A secret love, a taunting, wild romance, I couldn't live without. It is the bigger part of me and because it has been stifled by a life of diversions into business and familes, it becomes increasinly wrestless, as life narrows, at being ignored, A dragon I want to straddle and ride far away, I don't mind where.
Or, maybe it's all just a gentle, solitary past time for my imagination. Either way, I don't really do narratives... but was asked to write something."
"I have been a painter for twenty years. I have always had a passionate love of art and have developed my style over many years. My primary subject matter is concerned with transformation. Drawing on my love for combining traditional techniques, surrealism and innovative new ways of expressing myself, I am very excited about my current sequence of work. I work in oil and acrylic on canvas and board. "
"These paintings are a form of escapism: the representation of realistic animals with a surreal twist depicts my comical view of the world around me, and my readiness to transform all subjects into something more human and reassuring. Having worked for many years with special needs children, I have learnt to see the positive and happy things in life, as many of the children do despite their situations. This is reflected in my artwork. I used to paint landscapes and portraits, but I always found animals to be the most interesting. Then one day I painted a meerkat with an ice lolly for my son and he loved it. Suddenly I received lots of requests for similar paintings from his friends and colleagues, and so I have pursued painting subjects like this. I entered an art competition last year and won first prize with Giraffe Mugshot. I am looking to start exhibiting my work to bring it to a wider audience, and spread my light-hearted view of the world to others."
Exhibiting work by David Burton and Caroline Richmond: "We are two artists representing our own gallery which has been trading for seven years in the heart of Wells next the Sea. Our work covers a wide range of media and subjects including very special sculptural pieces featuring timber from heritage sea vessels including HMS Victory and Cutty Sark, all with full provenance."
In her studio on the Norfolk/Suffolk border, Sunday works with acrylics on canvas, with an emphasis on texture. Her pieces are full of colour and her three current collections comprise works of impressionist animals (equine and other animals); words and phrases; and completely abstract pieces.
“I love working with acrylic paste to create deep, touchable texture on my canvases. I use colour to emphasise the surface structures. I enjoy the freedom straight Abstract painting allows me, but in my Animal paintings I aspire to capture just the essence of the creatures I paint. My Words collection is part of an emotional journey and a desire to uplift others... art can inspire through image, but words are also very influential and to blend the two, I believe, is a very powerful combination.
"I work mostly in Printmaking creating colourful linocuts and etchings. I draw inspiration from my environment and try to capture the essence of a place. My images usually start with a sketch and I like the print to evolve as I create it - not working out too much detail in advance, but using my experience to let the image develop in the direction it happens to take at that particular time.
I am a dedicated, award winning, printmaker having been mesmerised by printmaking techniques since attending Art Foundation Course in Cambridge followed by a degree course in Sheffield and Postgraduate Printmaking at Camberwell, London. I use a variety of printmaking techniques but recently has concentrated on linocuts. I have exhibited extensively throughout the UK.

Having exhibited extensively across the UK and her work owned internationally, artist Lisa Almond draws inspiration from the land sea and sky. These powerful elements have heavily influenced her work. The paintings have an earthly feel to them, but sometimes they become more about shape and the relationship it has with the canvas. Music plays a huge part in the process and the artist allows the painting to reveal itself naturally and without question, similar to meditation. Using acid free tissue paper in a sculptural way, adding paint, Lisa often removes these layers to expose underlying colours. Wishing to convey a feeling of peace while exploring colour and movement, the artist gives the observer an insight into the process through which the pieces were created. A graduate of Camberwell College of Art, her interest lies in the unique atmosphere and sense of place provided by new locations, backed up by observing and documenting the constantly changing light and weather, allowing each work to convey some of the essence of the artist’s experience.
