Anne Biss MSDC

Hand Embroiderer

Much of Anne's work is inspired by maps. They evoke memories of special times and places, and show how the landscape has been influenced by man. Anne's work is hand stitched and this makes each piece of work unique. Commissions taken. Anne will be demonstrating hand embroidery during the open studio.

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

Adriana Brinsmead-Stockham MA, MSDC

Glass Artist

Coastal and fluvial landscapes are the main driving forces in my work. The patterns that the seas, rivers and wind make on the land - whether they are temporary designs on sand or carving of rocks and erosion of the environment - are all fascinating to me. Using cast and sometimes fused glass to interpret these natural designs is the core of my artwork. Commissions welcome

Consuelo Simpson

Visual Artist working with Paper, Cloth and Stitch

Walking is integral to Consuelo Simpson’s practice and her current body of work is an affectionate look at the countryside surrounding her home. At the heart of the work is a consideration of the history of the landscape and of the integration over time of man-made elements into the landscape. The work is not a faithful representation of the landscape, but rather a distillation of memories into layers, patterns and marks. The focus of the process is to reduce each element to its simplest form.

Ande Treharne

Ceramicist

The seashore has always been a strong influence on me, growing up near the sea in Freshfield, Lancashire. I find the patterns the sea makes fascinating and the imprint man has made on the environment through the use of structures to prevent the erosion of the shore. I try to represent the fragility, strength, calm and hues of the seashore by using pebble forms in semi-porcelain, T material, colbalt oxide and a limited pallet of glazes. I am currently incorporating in the decoration of my work the patterns found in various seed pods. I currently teach design at Charters School, Ascot. I will be demonstrating slip casting in ceramics during the open studio (weather permitting).

Nataliya Zozulya

Portrait / Landscape Artist / Muralist

I have always liked to paint water, be it a river or the sea. Kiev, where I studied and for more than 20 years had my studio, is a city on a river. After moving to London in 2001 I settled in Kingston, not far from the Thames. The flickering of light on and over water fascinates me; it is by no means easy to capture on canvas. My other great interest is the human body. In portraits, of which I have done many, the issue is to get something of the sitter’s character: the body in motion presents a quite different challenge. I will be demonstrating portrait painting during the open studio (weather permitting).

Nataliya Zozulya welcomes visitors all year round by appointment.
