Krasimira Tsacheva


Krasimira’s “SUPER NOVA STAR” series is a unique and powerful collection that includes 3D wall art, canvases, sculptures and statues. The work is inspired by “The Milk of Dreams.” from the Biennale in 2022, and celebrates the powers of the stars and celestial bodies.

Krasimira’s work invites the viewer to explore the world of possibility that surrounds our planet, visualising the unimaginable with her paintings.

Krasimira utilises the forces that govern our world to create the work, letting the weight of gravity run acrylic across the canvas. This style captures the constant state of flux and motion present within our galaxy, while celebrating the indefinable randomness that creates beauty within the cosmos.

The artist’s work is defined by an unspoken tension; it is both tranquil and awe-inspiring, weighty and weightless, dream-like and tangible.

The concept of the work: “Abstract where intangible emotions, moments and times are visualized through colours”

Set against matte black canvases, Michelle’s multimedia work utilises sand, resin, and acrylic to create otherworldly forms. The organic shapes that characterise her works experiment with texture and colour. Although they are sometimes created in smooth resin, and at other times with rough sand, the rounded forms are always strangely enchanting.

“Painting is my passion, my secret world and my journey.”

Each work has a different and individual character, filled with the feeling and sensitivity that capture me during its creation. Each painting lives a life of its own and tells its own story.

I like to experiment, to try something new and to use different techniques of painting.
As a subject, organic shapes and elements of nature often appear, but these can be interpreted differently from viewer to viewer.

Hidden messages and desires are often encoded in my works, but I like to leave it to the viewers to reach inside themselves and come to their own conclusions.

Personality in a painting is important!

“My aim is to uplift through colour, finding beauty in the mundane, extraordinary in the ordinary, in everyday life & things we overlook or perhaps take for granted. Colour is hugely important to me in painting. I don’t aim to replicate what’s in front of me, but to enhance and make the subject glow with vibrant colours, bold & exciting marks & textures. I work mainly in oils, pastel and mixed media – I enjoy layering and experimenting with materials and love a happy accident!”


Helen Cunningham


Helen Cunningham is a London-based, self-taught artist. She began her artistic career in illustration before moving on to painting, enjoying the colour and fluidity it brought to her work. Her work now explores the female form, which seemed a natural subject for the artist to tackle, given her focus on colour, motion, and emotion.

On a series of plain, coloured backgrounds, Helen’s work isolates the female form, with each seemingly on the verge of motion. These vivid figures appear to move with such measured poise, while the brushstrokes exude bursts of warm, sporadic energy. Helen presents the anonymous female nude as a bold and empowering entity that can aesthetically dominate an entire room through nothing more than a simple but graceful gesture.

“Feathers, to me, embody an endurable representation of nature. Through painting on them, leaving part of the original feather exposed, I feel that I am both celebrating the birds from which these delicate structures originate and exposing through my art, my own fragility.

I collect a wide variety of feathers whilst walking my dog in the local area (although occasionally I have feathers donated to me including, for example, a selection of Tawny Owl feathers, a rare find, and a single Lilac -breasted Roller feather found at Dartmoor Zoo).

Once cleaned thoroughly with disinfectant, I remove the bird oil with white spirits before washing the feathers again. Once dry, I straighten the barbs, which are the main branches off the central shaft (the rachis) 0f the feather, before re-hooking, wherever possible, the barbules (which are the tiny, hooked filaments off the barbs). The feather is then ready to be painted on. It is not possible to draw a rough sketch onto the feather itself, as any mistakes cannot be erased, so I must have in mind the design of the animal before I commit to painting on each feather.

Once I have painted in white the main shape of the creature and any associated background, I then begin to layer on the colours, often using the smallest of the miniature brushes to incorporate any details. My hope, when producing these miniatures, is to emphasize the awe and fascination that these structures inspire. Each feather is so delicate and yet, combined, they enable the bird to fly, to keep warm, to keep dry. I love the fact that I can utilize these most natural of canvases to create sensitive portraits of a range of animals.”

“No matter how hard I tried, I couldn’t know ETERNITY,

While we are translating about TIMELESS TIME as we dying,

The sun above our heads was dyeing our head with light.

See. We are in the beautiful music of light.”

“I make acrylic and mixed media images in response to the landscape, making sketches on location. It is about exposure, extremes and changes brought about by the elements, depending on such transient things as light, sound and temperature. Weather sometimes feels visceral; what we see isn’t always what it seems and as we draw on our instinct and not our intellect it can inspire fear; wonder; alarm; awe. The changes in light and landscape in places I come to know well influences the colour and atmosphere in my work.”

“The texture is a play on the solidity of the elemental forces upon us. I re-use paint peeled from yesterday’s palette to create texture, avoid an environmental impact of discarded paint, and to keep a connection with what went before. In the same way I sometimes use words or found objects to invoke fragments of collective memory.

I want to show the connectedness with the land and elements that we all share as humans. We have more in common than that which divides us.

I try not to use iconic viewpoints in the places that inspire the images, making them particular to a place. The spirituality of the place is something that can be shared by those far and near.”

A SEA CIRCLE captures more than simply a seascape. Within each circle is a personal interpretation. The state of the ocean is only one element. The circle, when viewed, creates a feeling of motion, the ebb and flow of tide and waves. The artist utilises her signature techniques, of mixed media and plaster relief, to create unique, distinctive, contemporary seascapes and sea circles.

SEA CIRCLE | PEBBLES’ is inspired by a peaceful early morning on Gyllyngvase beach, Cornwall. Sharp sand under foot and a clear sky reflected on a calm sea. Cornish cottages render on the surround. ‘SEA CIRCLE | EXPERIENCE’ is the result of a rough sea crossing and violent emotional storm.

In 1994 Julie A. Daniels completed a BA (Hons) Design (Textiles). In addition to fine art pieces, for over 20 years Julie has also created contemporary textile print designs exclusively for a Swiss studio. Julie A. Daniels lives in Cornwall and is represented by St Mawes gallery.

“I like to call myself a ‘mixed media’ explorer, as I find it hard to limit myself to just one medium. The constant need to explore unknown paths of my creativity has shaped the person I am today. As a keen world observer, photography is the fastest way to lock timeless moments, which I then incorporate into paintings. The process itself involves adding layers of acrylics and evolves into complete artworks so that the human eye finds it tricky to differentiate the boundaries between print and paint. Conceptually, I intend to give photography a new dimension or alternative outcome. I also like to experiment with different techniques, so you will see that my art collection varies.”

“Being a graphic designer by day has taught me the great importance of research. This is basically what my journey with art expresses. It is a constant journey and discovery of the best mediums which could convey my emotions and feelings at a particular stage in my life, which can be interpreted and could create an emotional impact on others.”
