For me, drawing is about noticing things, and communicating what I notice. I draw and illustrate when I can – a combination of direct observation, memory and my imagination. I generally work in pen and ink but also printmaking and painting too. There is often a narrative thread within my work, it has to be about something. I like to create a sense of the unusual, a space where humour, pathos and tenderness can mingle.

I live in Frome, Somerset. Since doing a Masters in Sequential Illustration in 2007 at Brighton University, I’ve been making art and working as a full time community artist teaching groups of children, adults, elderly people and people with learning disabilities. I love it all.

Alison Chaplin
Web Saatchiart and Riseart
Instagram alison.chaplin

Alison lives and works close to Epping Forest and this is her inspiration. The forest offers her the vocabulary to express her relationships across a whole range of encounters. Some of these are formal; her use of colour, contrast, scale and mark-making and some are personal; family, friendship, the passing of time. When Alison is in the forest she engages with it’s changing moods and seasons, fully immersed.

Most recent exhibitions: ‘I love the Song which Nature Sung’, The Barbican, London. January 2020
‘Where Nature Seemed One Endless Song’ , The Ice House Gallery, Holland Park, London. August 2019

Karen Lawrence Bright
Web www.karenlawrencebright.com
Instagram karenlawrencebright

Guided by William Coldstream’s principle that marks made should be a response to something seen, I approach the figure as I do a landscape, as a composition of forms with careful consideration of boundaries between colour changes. I seek a classical objectivity in my work, detaching the object from any form of narrative.

When drawing, I like to work with supports and media that require a very deliberate response to my observations whilst oil gives me the opportunity to work slowly such as this nude which is the result of a 10-day sitting at The Slade School of Art in London.

Instagram @pleavergreen

Jenny L’Estrange
I am a self-taught artist who lives in London on the fringes of Epping Forest. The forest, it’s lakes and wildlife, are my inspiration. I work in all media but my current favourite is lino printing. It enables me to work more freely and I enjoy physically cutting the lino. The most exciting part though is pulling that first print and seeing the image emerge. Over the past 5 years I have exhibited my work in local galleries and venue.

For over a decade now, Diana has been creating unusual photographic images which cross the boundary between photography and conventional art.

My work explores the emotions and individual relationships we have with certain places, reflecting on both urban and rural environments and the pastoral setting in which I grew up. I look to express a sense or spirit of a place and a way of communicating how it feels to be in these places.

Jeff Pigott

I mostly paint but also make sculpture, artefacts and constructions. My paintings often begin with collage, cardboard, paper, old photographs and other discarded ephemera. These bring with them their own stories and histories which I am able to rework and so create new imagery. I have been on the Arts Together team for 21 years as both an artist and in a project support role.

Julia Warin
Facebook: CeramicSpace Bradford on Avon

I am a visual artist, based in Bradford on Avon, and work in a variety of 2D and 3D media including; paint, collage, photography, ceramics, mixed media and found object assemblages, graphics, textiles, installations and interventions. I began by studying ceramics, but have since diversified to work with mixed media and have acquired a variety of making and designing skills along the way. My work is often made in response to place, issues, people or materials so the type of media may be suggested by the context. I aim to allow space for the intuitive; for chance and for spontaneity to lead my practice into unexpected areas. Therefore my work is often eclectic and not easy to categorise.

The resin pieces in this auction can lean against any window. When the sun light shines through it creates a stained glass effect.
