Carved animals from British wood.
‘In each of my carvings the starting point is usually the setting as this will suggest the movement a certain animal might make or a space in which one might live; this piece will have been retrieved from a beach, hedgerow, copse, or some kind person’s woodpile’.
Painter of local scenes. He made art all his life and loved Devon architecture and landscape ever since, aged 8, he was evacuated to a farm near Instow, North Devon, where a kindly lady neighbour taught him to draw. He was self-taught, read widely and enjoyed attending life-drawing regularly.
Eileen studied at Brighton College of Art as a mature student after WW2 and taught art at FE colleges until retiring to Devon in c. 1984 when she bought a cottage in Hatherleigh and spent the next 30 years portraying the town, its surroundings, and especially the livestock market and its people. Eileen was a founder member of the group of artists and makers that helped to set up the Salar Gallery in 1991, and she was involved with many public art projects around the town in the years that followed.
Born in Surrey and attended Hastings School of Art, he moved to Jersey in 1976, dividing his time between painting and teaching art. He has had many solo shows, in Jersey, France, Italy and London, with successful exhibitions in Nice, Cannes, and the Museum in St Paul de Vence, followed by the prestigious Castello della Lucertola in Italy. He also painted many pictures in West Devon.
Lives in North Cornwall where he paints mainly dramatic and serene seascapes in watercolour. After graduating from Trinity College, Dublin, in natural sciences (1976), he chose the risqué path of freelance art, cartooning for the Irish Press, illustrating books and struggling to paint. He was recognised by the Royal Hibernian Academy in the 1980s and the Watercolour Society of Ireland.
Self taught artist who spent all her life doodling and dreaming (alongside having a career as an occupational therapist and raising two boys) until 2010 when she started painting pictures and making greetings cards. In 2015 she made the enormous decision to dedicate more time to her art, leaving the job she had been doing for nearly 20 years.
Obtained BA Hons at Goldsmith’s College (1978) and post-graduate course at Exeter University (1981). Taught for many years before deciding to develop her own ideas exploring the use of glass with her art, eventually developing a technique using strawsilk on recycled glass to produce wonderfully coloured and unique bowls and vases, mostly decorated with a fish motif, sometimes one or two, sometimes a whole shoal seemingly suspended in space through the translucent glass, like a flight of birds in the air.
Born into a family of artists, Pam is inspired by the beautiful West Country landscapes which surround her. Light and mood play a large part in her paintings where she captures the splendour of the ever changing seasons. Pastels are her preferred medium but she also uses watercolour and mixed media. Her work has been published as limited edition prints and has also been put onto six Wedgewood collectors’ plates.
Rose likes to chuckle at life and sees humour in everyday happenings, whether it appears in villages, small towns, male voice choirs or even the local cattle markets.
Her slightly more serious paintings are of cottages, her lovely hens and various farm animals. With just an ‘O’ level in art, she is pretty well self-taught (over many years!)
A graduate of Hornsey College of Art and Byam Shaw School of Art, he worked freelance before becoming a qualified teacher of art and working in Torbay. On retirement from teaching, he moved to Meeth (near Hatherleigh), little realising that Devon Wildlife Trust were about to open a new nature reserve in the old china clay pits that were almost on his doorstep. He became their artist-in-residence and developed distinctive ways of working with watercolour, graphite & ink-soluble pencils.
Rosie lives in North Devon. She works in a broad range of media, inspired by light, life and natural forms. She’s an obsessive creative lured by adventure in different media.
Sarah trained at the Slade School of Fine Art. She now lives and works in North Devon. Her large views of trees and woods reflect her love of drawing as an expressive medium and her interest in human responses to nature.
Shan studied at North Devon College and attended various life drawing groups. Her work encompasses primitive and classical styles depicting a wide range of subject matter. The paintings on wooden panels vary in size from 6 inches to more than 6 feet across. She has held many exhibitions including the NFU/RAS sponsored ‘A Celebration of the Farmyard – Life after Foot-and-Mouth’ which opened at the Salar Gallery before touring throughout SW England and The Royal Show at Stoneleigh.
Animals have always played a large part in Vivien’s life and she decided to pursue a full-time career as an artist following a move to the West Country in 1983 and never looked back. Her paintings range from commissioned portraits of her clients’ beloved animals to the livestock and wildlife of North Devon and Exmoor. Her work has featured in the Society for All Artists magazine where she demonstrates her painting techniques step by step.
