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

Judith M Smith

There’s a randomness to what I paint. Particular subjects grab my attention and a whole series of work can emerge. For me painting is an act of discovery, an exploration of something that has caught my attention. The unexpected can happen, it’s exciting, tantalising. I paint mostly in oils and love the texture, smell, the feel and the versatility of the medium. I work in an energetic, intuitive, experimental and … Continue reading
