Stephen Millard Exhibition, The Workshop

I grew up in Hertfordshire where I originally studied art from a very early age. After a period in Wiltshire, I moved to Suffolk in 2004 and now live in Felixstowe where my home and studio are based.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I Mostly work in oils but enjoy experimenting with acrylics and other media. Most of my paintings are based on the Suffolk landscape and coastal areas, with a little splash of the North Cornish coast.

I try to capture the different feelings of the landscape and sea at different times of the day and in different seasons. Then I like to develop the paintings beyond the actual scene and colours, so the finished works have a more individual and contemporary character.

Driftwood Sculptures – Nature Reborn

Chris and Jean Berry are based in Reydon, Southwold and have always had an interest in sculpturing interesting shapes, from ethically sourced driftwood for the garden or home.

Driftwood Sculptures Nature Reborn

Following two commissions from our neighbours, we started our business “Driftwood Sculptures – Nature Reborn” in 2012 – the name coming about as we bring the salt bleached driftwood back to life. We now source our hardwood driftwood from the Storm Beaches of the South Island New Zealand.

All our sculptures are hand finished, waterproofed and then finished with Danish oil so that they can be returned to the garden, patio or terrace or can be displayed in the home.

This year our exhibitions have taken us from local destinations such as Aldeburgh, Snape Maltings to as far north as Harrogate Flower Show (where we won a Silver Award for our display), to RHS Malvern, Worcestershire and we have just exhibited at the Royal Berkshire Show, Newbury as well as being invited to the Sandringham Flower Show. BBC Radio Suffolk have also done a feature on Chris and his sculpture work this year at Aldeburgh.

Our exhibition at the Workshop Snape Maltings commences on Friday 10th October to Thursday 16th October where we will have our new Autumn collection of sculptures for the home or garden. Looking forward to meeting you there.

Clare Rizzo Exhibition, The Workshop

Much of Clare Rizzo’s work centres on her local environment of Suffolk.

Clare_Rizzo_web

She initially used watercolour as an architect. Nowadays her work has become freer in expression, and the pigments run and mix on the paper in a looser style.

In her watercolours and oil pastels, she aims to catch the essence of a place by exploring colour, luminosity and texture. This year she is exhibiting, for the first time, experimental works in oils.

Start: October 17, 2014
End: October 21, 2014

Carol Pask Exhibition, The Workshop

I am a ceramic artist working in stoneware and porcelain, combining traditional methods to create sculptural pieces, which are often fused with metal, wood, slate and sometimes textiles.

Carol_Pask_web

My work is of an abstract nature, and evolves as a response to both the beauty and fragility of my rural surroundings. Shapes and images are distilled into non-representational interpretations with just the essence remaining in the finished sculptural work.

Most pieces are smoke fired which I feel enhances the organic and natural quality of the clay. I seek a balance between the controlled structure of the work and the chaos of the firing, bringing unpredictability and individuality to each piece.

Cyndi Speer Exhibition, The Workshop

Cyndi is a professional artist who lives and works in Suffolk.

Cyndi_Speer_3_web

Her work is rapidly becoming recognised for its unique contemporary style and striking colours. Besides exhibiting widely throughout Suffolk, one of her most recent commissions has included decorating a 2.5m high giraffe, (one of a total of thirty giraffes), that commemorated the fiftieth anniversary of Colchester Zoo. Together with this she was also commissioned to design a signed giraffe by Sir David Attenborough.

Her work has sold widely, both nationally and internationally, and her greetings cards are now being promoted nationally by the publishing company ‘Green Pebble’. Working constantly for forthcoming exhibitions, she is also available to work to commission.

Liz James Exhibition, The Workshop

Elizabeth paints with watercolour, acrylic and oils, in a fluid, expressive style to portray the atmosphere of a place and time rather than topographical detail.

Mid-Tide web

She also likes to incorporate other materials and mediums and often use charcoal, pastel, wax and sand to enhance and bring another dimension to her paintings.

East Anglia’s landscape is the main inspiration for her artistic practice with it’s vast stretches of coast and wide open skies. She is also interested in the way the weather and changing seasons mark the passage of time and affect the mood of the land, sea and sky.

Elizabeth completed a BA Hons. in Fine Art in the 1980’s at Stourbridge in the West Midlands and, after several years working for Bosch Lawn and Garden in a sales and marketing role, returned to study successfully for an MA in Fine Art at the Norwich University of the Arts in 2009. She is now working full-time as an artist.

Kingsley Thompson Exhibition

I first started seriously stitching about ten years ago, whilst living in Devon. I gained the Diploma in Creative Embroidery under the tutelage of Madeleine Millington in about 2006.

kingsley_thompson_exhibition_web

Having returned to East Anglia, I recently completed the Certificate in Machine Embroidery with Annette Morgan.

My main interests lie in fabric dyeing (snow dyeing is very exciting!), printing on fabric and freehand machine embroidery. I use old Indian print blocks or make my own lino -cuts for printing. These are the techniques I most employ in my work. Having been lucky enough to live in two very beautiful areas of the country, I base most of my pieces on the natural world.

‘Running with Scissors’ Exhibition, The Workshop

An exhibition from a textile art group.

Bossy Bird By Delia Cecil web

Our gang of four, Delia, Jane, Jan & Jenny wanted to be and remain as a small, close working group of friends, as we see this as the best way to support our common aims as a mutually respectful and like minded whole. As a group we meet once a month to gain advice and opinions of our work in progress and offer each other an impersonal and objective critique; meetings also help us focus on progressing or finishing work in order to meet our monthly deadline.

All four members work in different ways, having different interests and styles, but we are loosely of a mixed-media textile discipline. Being together in a group and as friends helps us to strive to improve our workmanship; we hope the level of attention to detail is demonstrated in the execution and finish of our work.
