Annette Carding


My work is a constant search for the best way to interpret the ideas and feelings I am experiencing in any one moment or phase.
Translating an image and presenting it in a way of sharing facets of our identity with the observer and a sense of connectedness.

Lucia Davies


My current working processes are lino printing and mono-printing on the kitchen table. The Print Shed, a bespoke print studio and workshop in our village, has sadly moved and I do not have my own press. I really miss having the equipment to make collagraphs, especially creating tones and textures, but am enjoying experimenting with new techniques and love printing with colour.

Denise Fordyce

The energy and excitement not only of dramatic landscapes such as the Pembrokeshire coast, but also working steam engines and old farm machinery are my inspiration. 
A small sketchbook plus pens, pencils and watercolours are always in my backpack for making quick drawings and notes about colour and light.

Stella Hidden

My paintings are a journey of discovery from the very first mark until the final brushstroke.
Creating a painting embraces technique and also layers of thinking, feeling and time to let it develop and evolve often over many months. Inspiration and spontaneity are always necessary to complete a painting. I am influenced by the world around me and use the language of colour, rhythm, shape and form within each painting.

Lorraine Thurlow


In 1996, after raising my children, I attended Herefordshire College of Art and Design, where I gained a BA (hons) degree in Illustration. I work in watercolour, oil and graphite, and I also produce greetings cards, which are mainly images from my paintings, which I sell locally and at various outlets around Herefordshire.

Jenny Williams

I love oil paint, the texture and smell, and the effect of putting different colours together!
People painting I enjoy, using the composition a bit like collage. Putting different images together until I find a pleasing story. I love fiction and painting is somewhat like writing a book.
