Shauna Stanton MA

Painter

I am originally from Cornwall and studied Fine Art at Falmouth/Cardiff and eventually completed a Masters Degree in Fine Art at Birmingham School of Art. I currently work from a studio in the centre of Guildford although I also spend some time each month working back in Cornwall. My current paintings are watercolour on paper; I sometimes incorporate mixed media. Although abstract on first appearance on closer inspection you will see animals and figures.I have exhibited widely in London, Cornwall and the south east and have show with The RI for the last 3 years. I undertake private commissions.

See the artist's SAOS Member web page for more information.

Marion Deacon

Painter

I am often asked why do you paint? The easy answer is because I love painting. However it is far more deep-rooted than this. When I do not paint for a period of time something is missing, I yearn to paint. It's like an addiction; often when driving or going to sleep I am mentally planning how to approach a painting - colours to use and so on. . My work is a celebration of our beautiful world and through it I give thanks to the Creator God.

Diana Pollock

Painter

My preferred medium has been for a long time pastels, building up layers to create sometimes unexpected effects. I have developed a keen interested in the relationship with still life and the artist, believing that the interpretation of the subject matter is often consciously or not, autobiographical. I admire and reference the work of artists such as Ben Nicholson, William Scott, Georgio Morandi and Matthew Smith. I now work from home in Guildford and have exhibited in sole and collaboratory exhibitions in London and the South East.
