LIZ BOLLOTEN

I am a Watercolour Artist who is constantly striving to capture the ethereal, ever changing  beauty of the natural world.

Watercolour has the power to paint itself, if you hold your nerve and go with the flow. Where it  meanders it creates new tones and marks, that cry out for expression. My work is forever evolving as I discover how to stretch and bend the medium.     

JAN GARDNER

Jan Gardner was born and brought up in North Wales and spent much of her early years wandering the lanes and hills around her home.

It was here that the light, space and colours that inhabit her work first became an influence. Drawing on these memories and experiences of special places

and her later travels in Europe, Morocco and the U.S.A.; she

crafts vivid and atmospheric works. Colours that fly in from emotion and passion, relaying a deep connection with the varied, differing landscapes from which they evolve.

KIRSTI HANNAH BROWN

The work I currently produce is hand built from a variety of stoneware clays. The slab built bottles are created using thinly rolled clay to create finished pieces which are light and elegant. Coiled bottles are spherical in form, but each one is completely different due to the nature of the construction method. 

JENNIFER SUELLEN RYE

Jennifer Suellen Rye is a renowned painter in North Wales. She has held many exhibitions across the UK and abroad , she draws inspiration from nature and mankind.

 

She likes to be surrounded by nature and carries a camera to capture the moments that inspire her. As an experienced and gifted artist, she can create art pieces that tell a story.
