My interest and experience in using innovative textile techniques, enables me to create unique garments, shawls and accessories, alongside complementary artwork in a variety of media. This exhibition presents a wonderful opportunity to show a seasonal collection of ‘one-off’ studio designs and experimental pieces, alongside my more ‘classic’ range of garments. Individual commissions are also welcomed. I customise each piece to fit and suit my clients in terms of style, … Continue reading

Esther Clark

Esther loves any creative medium, in particular textiles and pen-and-ink; intricate details in drawings often translate well into fabrics. Esther’s favourite subject is buildings; she uses appliqué to recreate these in fabrics, adding individual touches like pearls for a 30th anniversary, a plane for a pilot, or a welcoming cat in the window, to make commissions as personal as possible. Esther uses the same technique to recreate cars in fabric; … Continue reading

Emily Kallend

My work is created using twisted and folded pieces of canvas and muslin laid onto the canvas. The surface of the fabric is textured which provides natural areas of dark and light. The folding of the fabric and application of paint create optical effects. I utilise areas of colour theory to create a ‘push and pull’ off the surface. Blue tones pushing back and red tones pulling forward. I play … Continue reading

Colourful and lively mixed media contemporary paintings from Sussex and my travels. I try to capture reflected images and moods from the palest skies to vibrant Summer days

I work in all mediums but find oils and acrylics the most pleasurable. My real passion is through Impressionism of my fascination of naturally occurring formations. I love the challenge of creating the atmosphere of the thoughts and experiences I perceive. These ‘mindscapes’ give me the prospect of making the work come to life and tell a story.

Irma Westerdijk

Irma began her artistic career at a very early age and now, as she says herself, simply can’t imagine a day without creating. Found and recycled objects form the starting point for her work. These she leaves in her studio, allowing them to trigger ideas for sculptures. These are mainly figurative although she also creates wall art with a lot of texture. Since 2003 Irma has developed her use of … Continue reading

Andre P Westerdijk

My work is best described as ‘up-cycling’. I’m driven by ‘the need to put things out of context’. I use pre-owned vintage and antique objects and transform them by totally altering their use turning them into bespoke lamps and home-ware, giving them a new lease of life. It’s the hoarder in me not wanting to see good things go to waste or no longer appreciated. I aim to inspire happy … Continue reading
