Jacqueline Hammond - http://jacquelinehammond.co.uk/site/

Contemporary British artist Jacqueline Hammond, is renowned for producing strong punchy images that are rich in colour. A prolific painter and multidisciplinary artist, Jacqueline exhibits widely and is commissioned by individual clients, collectors and high profile brands alike. Several works have been chosen for publication under license.
Her natural disposition is to let the paint dictate the creative process, trusting the medium and her mind's eye to translate the vision. Immediate inspiration comes from direct observation; plucked from life, some ideas evolve, others are a reactionary process. More thought provoking themes explore today's society, the media and cultural theory.

My name is Julie Coe and I have always been passionate about photography. My first passion was for macro and I still love taking macro shots of insects and flowers. These days, I have found a new love of working with tones and textures on my images to give them more of an art look and feel and to be a bit different from the normal photographic shot.



Juliet Drewett's work at www.bgallery.co.uk



Born and bred in Aylesbury, England, and now living in Bedford, England, Juliet’s family, in particular her paternal grandfather was an exquisite painter. “It’s without doubt the colours and shapes in nature that inspire me, and when asked the other day what motivates me to paint, I said quite simply, because it just makes me happy – and I would like to think that’s the case for most, if not all of us, who are lucky enough to take a brush to canvas. Using an acrylic medium I paint large, extravagant and bold compositions of a rich variety of flowers, beach scenes, boats and other genre. I would say flowers and boats are my abiding passions however. Flowers because they’re so diverse, and I suspect that if you were to dream up a flower in your mind then it would probably exist somewhere in the world. And boats because I couldn’t be happier than when I am on the water. Over the years I‘ve exhibited and sold at The New Studio in Olney, Buckinghamshire, taken on commissions for clients, and sold at numerous shows. My last one at Wrest Park, Bedfordshire, I was delighted to sell over forty to the general public.”

Grzegorz Czarnecki

http://www.bgallery.co.uk/artist-profile.asp?artistid=615

 My name is Grzegorz Czarnecki. Currently I reside in Maspeth, New York, but originally I am from Poland. Ever since my youth I have had a profound interest in carpentry. The job of designing and creating all sorts of finished products from wood gave me a feeling of great satisfaction and fascination. When I was 15, I first encountered the style of marquetry. My love for that form of art and, what I quickly discovered, great skill in the field, that I had, opened up a whole new world to me, one which I knew I had to explore.           A beautiful item of marquetry is the fruit of a long and detailed process of picking, cutting, placing, and gluing which takes a long time. In a traditional technique, different design elements are cut separately in an attempt to reduce a gap left by a knife´s blade. As a result, perfectly fit together pieces show no visible signs of insertions and blending together, they create one solid surface.
The motifs applied in intarsia include elements of landscape, animals, flowers, people and geometrical details. A real artist is able to combine factors such as grain, color and texture of materials to render desired aesthetic results as hi would be using a palette to paint paintings.

Hilary Roberts - www.hilaryrobertsphotography.com

Producing images based on my photography has given me pleasure and satisfaction for quite a long time. 
I am a Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society and a Master of the International Federation of Photographic Art but neither of these distinctions has prevented me from creating unusual and original art.
Travels abroad, especially to Cuba, have resulted in many vibrant images.  However, I also love to create pictures taken in the British Isles and I particularly like to produce elegant scenes of my Regency home town, Leamington Spa.  These local pictures can be seen on my website.
Every component of my pictures has been captured by my camera, but I like to make modifications and changes to each image, maybe removing distractions, harmonising colours or building up layers of meaning.  The technical term for this is "fiddling". 
A huge variety of subjects are included in my portfolio and all are available to purchase as giclée prints on archival art paper.

Born in Holland and moved to South Africa at the age of 12. I have always been drawing and painting for as long as I can remember. At the age of 24 I moved to England and have exhibited at the Mall Gallery in London and The Horsebridge in Whitstable Kent. I have worked for children's book publishers for 3 years and have attended Art College in Durban South Africa. I work in many mediums and love experimenting with new materials. I now live in Kent where I paint from my loft conversion which has inspirational views accross the Swale to the Isle of Sheppy. I have also illustrated a number of children's books. 

Caroline Richardson - b Gallery - http://itsoriginal.co.uk/glass/



Being an artist is more about a way of life than a career. So much of what Caroline create comes out of what she feels and how she responds to events and surroundings that it says more about who she is than just what she see. It comes out of passion and intuition and although some of it can be learnt, to be truly creative means that Caroline has to think ‘outside the box’. She has to depend on her imagination to push the bounds of her experience and to challenge her existing thinking, to find new ways of expression and develop new combinations and approaches. The possibilities are endless but it’s all achieved just one step at a time.
