Carys Martin

Carys’s inspiration is drawn from the natural environment, ancient artefacts and cultures, along with the myriad options for surface design and finish. Carys originally trained as a printmaker, completing her degree in 1996, this often shows through in the detail of the surface decoration.

Margaret Rose Howick

I never tire of nature’s intricate tapestry, tone, colour, texture, light and shade in everything I see. I am also very tactile and enjoy the experience of touch, whether it is a little animal, a bird, fine mosses or massive forest trees, each is a unique experience. I do hope you are able to experience the multi sensory experience I try to achieve in my painting. I began painting in 1980 studying with various tutors over the years in colour…
