Lyn Peters


Originally from Hampshire but calling Woodbridge in Suffolk home for the last fifteen years, Lyn started painting in 2019 and her work was featured in 2021’s RA Summer Exhibition.  Her art has also been exhibited in Suffolk, as well as last October’s Affordable Art Fair in Battersea, London.

Lyn’s figurative landscapes, florals and portraits are mostly mixed media works on canvas or artboard; and East Anglia’s big skies and sense of space provide endless inspiration for her landscapes.


Victoria Gillow


BA(hons) Fine Art, PGCE (Art and Design), MA (Falmouth University) Exhibitions- A series of exhibitions over 25 years including -solo shows in St Ives, Falmouth and shows in Bath, Reading, Cardiff and Bristol. “I am a Cornish Painter and have a broad range of professional and teaching experience. I generate my paintings on-site, working directly from thumbnail sketches and paintings straight onto canvas within an hour of a site visit.  This enables me to keep my artwork fresh and helps me to harness the physical feeling of being part of a landscape, expressing both weather and space and the feeling of the land/sea beyond the canvas.”

This exhibition shows a small selection of my work and celebrates a lived by the sea and my deep affinity with the ocean, the Cornish Coast and its history. The paintings here depict work done on Cornwall’s Atlantic Coast, where the vast beaches, deep seas, rolling tides and immense skies enable the viewer to feel the energy and space of these beautiful scapes.


Ann Palmer


Ann is a British Artist working in oils using a brush and palette knife often producing highly textural work. She is best known for her seascapes but is now gaining recognition for her modern landscapes. Her work is inspired by her experience standing in the seashore and in the fields immersing herself in the environment, getting to know the landscape, and the colours. Sketching and plein air painting is an essential part of her process. When Ann is in the studio her memories play an important part in working up a painting; the palette knife takes over, carefully placing the colours juxtaposed with each other resulting in a more abstract form of the subject.


Caitlin Gilmour


Born on the west coast of Scotland and working as a marine scientist, my artistic inspiration has always been drawn from the ocean and coasts. I’m in awe of the colours, depths, textures, and feelings these environments evoke.

I aim to harness those feelings created by the ocean, whether that is calmness, warmth, boldness, or strength and transport them into people’s homes. I do so by working primarily on aerial perspectives and building on each layer using a textured paste, acrylic ink, acrylic paint, spray paint and finishing with epoxy resin.


Freddie Jackson


“I’m an architect, urban designer and digital artist. I sketch things quickly on my iPad mini and then work from memory at home or sometimes on my commute. This urban vs. rural landscape series is all about chimneys.”


Manda Ratri


Manda Ratri is a self-taught painter. She is originally from Indonesia, currently working as a flight attendant for one of the Middle Eastern Airlines in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

Watercolour and gouache paintings are her primary medium, and recently, she returned to oil painting. Manda uses watercolour to reveal the bright and stunning coastal lines of northeastern Florida. “The Atlantic Beach” painting series was born from the photographs she took in the city of Atlantic Beach, Florida. It consists of three paintings; The Waves, The Sunset, and The Sunrise. Working as an international flight attendant, Manda’s art expresses what she sees, through her eyes, as Manda travels the world


Sally Mason


I am a British landscape photographer. My engagement with photography began as a teenager and continued throughout a long career as a film producer in London. Since leaving the film industry, it has become a full-time pursuit.

The two groups of photographs on show – landscape and seascape – originated during the Covid pandemic which resulted in the various social/cultural restrictions of lockdown. During this time, as life slowed for many, pockets of reflective time became part of the daily norm. Walking in the countryside with my camera became a necessary and restorative activity. Moving the camera during a long exposure created images that had an ethereal quality and evoked the slowing of time, which seemed to reflect the deceleration of our lived lives at that time.

Conveying the emotion or feeling of being immersed in the landscape is more important to me than a literal representation. I aim to engage the viewer with the experience of being absorbed in and connected to nature. To offer a moment to reflect and feel at one with the natural world. The use of long exposures and intentional camera movement is an attempt to go beyond a merely ‘scenic’ form of representation. The gesture within the photograph reflects the ‘living’ nature of the subject and the fragility found therein. My relationship with and my interpretation of the environment provide the foundation of my photography. My intuition is captivated and somehow liberated when in the landscape. I see movement and flow in everything and ICM (intentional camera movement) enables me to evoke the subtle, but constant motion I find there.


Debbie Zoutewelle


Landscape; connecting us to past and present – a continual inspiration. I aim to express an essence of a sense of place – an emotional response rather than a literal representation. Sustainability and environmental concerns are key topics I return to. Art has the power to accentuate and develop a new thought process with the viewer. I work in oils, from an expanded tradition, though am mindful of harsh thinning and cleaning materials being detrimental and prefer to use Walnut oil and soap bars for this purpose. Through my work, I wish to provoke a dialogue about our relationship with our locality and environmental concerns that maybe prevalent to each and every one of us.


Nidhi Bhatia

Born in India, Nidhi Bhatia has graduate degrees in Literature and Education, followed by a diploma in Textile Designing. She is a self-taught artist and has been dabbling in painting since childhood. She started exhibiting her works professionally since 2001. She has exhibited her artwork in Delhi, NCR, Hyderabad and Chandigarh. Her work hangs in private collections in the US, Canada, Europe, the Middle-east, Hong Kong and India. She has various commissioned works to her credit. She has had four solo and numerous group shows and attended national art camps. She exhibits her works in various galleries in India and on international online websites.

My paintings are not a pure representation but a response to the moods and atmosphere generated by memories and experiences of landscapes, seen and felt. As a landscape artist, it is light and colour that I remember most about a place, which is also my inspiration. My goal is to inspire those who see my work, to look and observe more carefully the world around them and discover beauty in unusual places. My landscapes and flowers try to capture nature’s transient beauty and its fleeting magic. I am greatly influenced by the landscapes of JMW Turner and Constable. I paint in oils because of the time it gives me to reflect, savour and pause so that I enjoy the process of painting as much as the finished work. I use thin translucent washes of colour built layer upon layer. I use various tools, brushes, cloth, paper, palette knives and fingers to scrape, lift and layer colour. Each of the landscapes highlights the interplay of light, colour, shapes and shadows captured on canvas or paper, to create a new, colourful, slightly surreal, slightly dreamy version of the real world.


Chris Ferrary


Chris is a British visual artist living and working in London. His work has been exhibited at Enfield Arts Circle, The Arts Depot, Finchley and Ngopi in Dalston. Chris has studied with the Art Institute and particularly with the Norfolk Painting School under the tuition of award-winning artist Martin Kinnear. The skills and techniques he’s learned there have made the Norwich School, and particularly Edward Seago, key influences in his work. For more than 40 years, Chris had a busy career advising public bodies and private companies on environmental issues. It gave him a deep understanding and love of the natural world, how cities work, and how these interact. This is now the basis of his branching out in new artistic directions that aim to capture emotional responses to the natural and built environment.




Marika is a Finnish wood artist, currently living and working in Zurich, Switzerland.

She is strongly influenced by the beauty, the chaotic order and the complexity of

Nature which is the inspiration at the core of her work. By interpreting the moods

and feelings of nature, her works transforms into botanical illusions which resembles

traditional paintings yet on closer inspection the surface is almost three dimensional

with a vivid and illusory texture.

Due to her past studies in cabinet making in London, her technique starts by carving

and scraping onto wooden boards with her numerous woodworking tools. Working

very intuitively and guided by the grains in the wood, an unpredictable textured base

unfolds. The remaining wood splinters still attached to the boards are an essential part in her works. The process is followed by painting several layers of earthy colour

tones using acrylic paints and pigments until a painterly impression is obtained. The organic feeling she is seeking for, is reinforced by a balance between natural

spontaneity and carefully defined markings.

Marika is trying to make sense of the current society, where many are disconnected

from the importance of nature and prefer to exploit it rather than nurture it. Through her

forests and landscapes, she strives to portray a sense of tranquillity as well as to

emphasize the immense driving power Nature is able to convey!
