Artist John Heywood

John mainly paints coastal scenes, river scenes and landscapes.
He has been painting for about 30 years now and what began innocently enough as an interesting if challenging hobby has in recent years somehow got out of hand. John cannot complain; he simply loves to paint!
Whenever possible John paints "en plein air" and sets up his easel in front of the scene he wants to paint, although for larger pieces he of course has to work in the studio.

Kerri Nathwani - www.kerrinathwaniart.co.uk

Kerri is a self taught artist and has been painting since she was young. She lives in Gourock on the West Coast of Scotland. Kerri paints in water colour and acrylic, and she has recently started painting in oils which she is really enjoying. The effects that can be achieved with oils is second to none. Her preferred subject is landscape but recently she has been experimenting with more varied subjects such as flowers , figures and statues!
Kerri's inspiration generally comes from her surroundings in the West Coast of Scotland. She is very lucky to be surrounded by such fantastic views its just a shame the weather isn't a little bit better!
Kerri is a member of a local art club and exhibits her paintings in a variety of local exhibitions. She also has exhibited and sold paintings in local shops. Painting is her hobby. Kerri loves painting because she feels relaxed and time seems to disappear.

Julie Coe - www.jcoephotography.com

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.
Other sizes and formats of my images are available on request.

Annie Blanchet Rouze at www.bgallery.co.uk

I am a French artist based in London. When I moved from Paris to London in 2000, I took the opportunity to enrol in a BTEC Foundation in Art and Design before moving to a BA (Hons) Fine Art at Central Saint Martins College in London.
As a graduated artist, the main essence of my artworks lies in the sensory expression ; the fusion between the use of different kinds of materials and the emotional outcome from imagination. This interplay between imagination, emotion and materiality gives me free rein to convey a universal expression.
My artworks modify, reduce or increase some aspects of the real. For instance, having been trained as a sculptor and a painter, I have recently created a series of mixed media paintings that incorporate some materials such as clear resin usually used for sculptures into my mixed media paintings.
I also regularly exhibit my artworks in galleries and art fairs. The most recent ones are The Other Art Fair, Parallax Art Fair in London, Reading, Brighton and Windsor Art Fairs.

Grzegorz Czarnecki


 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.
