Here are a few of the artists taking part
Joanna lives and works and exhibits in Buckinghamshire but travels to Italy, Spain, the Middle East and Europe (when she can) to collect information in sketchbooks and photographs from direct observation of the landscape. It is the abstraction of geological structures in the environment, the manipulation of collage and various paints and materials that holds her interest. Perspective and illusion are not as important as patterns, designs and exaggerated colours and textures in the making of the paintings.
Sophie MacCarthy ceramics
Sophie produces beautiful slip-painted earthenware ceramics decorated with birds, leaves and fish. She loves the colours and textures of the natural world and the urban environment. Her work is in many museums and galleries.
Steve is a wood carver and turner who works with native hardwoods. He is inspired by wildlife and plant forms, many observed when volunteering with his local Wildlife Trust. Steve hand cuts incised lettering for house signs and commemorative plaques. He also produces turned bowls and platters adorned with carving and lettering.
