JOANNE LAST www.joannelast.co.uk
Joanne finds inspiration in a diversity of places - from the landscape and sea to urban scenes and found objects. Her recent body of work has come from an increasingly intuitive and experimental working practice.Of equal importance to the 'subject' is the tactility of the materials she uses, their physical application and 'mark making' and the picture surface itself, with its rich history of layers and texture that unfold in the course of the making of a painting.Joanne has exhibited widely throughout the UK, she has work in many private and corporate collections and is a permanent gallery artist with the award winning Porthminster Gallery in St Ives.
SUSAN MOXLEY www.susanmoxley.com
Susan’s fine art work is bold and direct in style, and usuallycarries a narrative. Her influences are topical and current. Although her work appears playful and light hearted it is often embedded with a serious, more thoughtful message.While print is her core medium she constantly experiments with different media, and new ways of expression.
She has completed stained glass commissions for schools,museums and domestic settings, illustrated jacket covers and children’s books. She designs and makes silverjewellery and exhibits her paintings and prints extensively.

DYLAN BOWEN www.dylan Bowen.co.uk

BEATRICE HOFFMAN www.beatricehoffman.co.uk
Beatrice RBSA is based near Oxford. She is currentlycompleting a life-sized public commission of two figures for a UK hospital 's main entrance.
She aims to achieve simplicity, clarity and abstraction in her sculpture, to extend beyond decorative prettiness, and hold contradictions and tensions. She searches for a sense of fullness contrasted with negative shapes; sharp angles between surfaces, juxtaposed with smoothness.
With her abstracted heads particularly, she explores themes on the interface of mythology, psychology and spirituality , human identity and universal experiences.
MARTIN SMITH www.martinsmithsculpture.co.uk
Martin is a sculptor who works principally in stone,particularly marbles and various alabasters.
He studied stone carving on courses at art centres in England and Italy and, when sculpture shared equal time with a career in academic editing, he is now a full-time artist.
Most recent work is in a fairly abstract idiom, often inspired by organic forms and natural details, but there has also been a thread of figurative work that he is currently developing in association with a gallery.
