This Weeks Featured Artists
Pat works in a broadly watercolor based application combined with mixed media including collage, textural mediums, acrylics, inks and various ‘dry’ materials. She is fascinated by how light influences our perceptions in landscape though, fundamentally, she classifies herself as a colourist. Her influences include artists such as Robert Dutton and Chris Foresy.
Karen Wise is a North West England based artist. She began her career as a painter over 20 years ago and has successfully exhibited throughout the UK. Her main mediums are water-based used in an expressive and almost surreal way and her work is notable for its strong rhythmical shapes and powerful use of intense colour.
Helen's inspiration for paintings is the birds and wildlife of the British Isles, the sea and the British coast and, more recently, experimenting with abstract shapes, forms and colour using the different media of watercolour, inks, line and wash, acrylics and pastels, which offers her the variety with which to ‘break rules’, mix media together to create her art.
