Michael Batey

“I was born in Cumbria and now live in Scotland for over thirty years. I am a self-taught artist who has been exhibiting professionally for 16 years all over the UK. Chester and Several Solo shows, recently one in Cumbria which was a great success. My work is collected all over the world.

My inspiration has come from walking the fells of Cumbria and hills of Scotland, I strive to capture the light and atmosphere in my work and evoke an emotion in the viewer.”


Kim Donkersley

A British artist and curator, Kim has primarily focused on curation since 2018; working with communities such as Solace Women’s Aid and organising exhibitions on their behalf.

This collection features bold, bright, and sinewy landscapes from her own portfolio. They aim to represent her belief that nature is more animate than any human.


Julie Fitzsimmons

“I am an Edinburgh born and bred mother of 2. During the pandemic, while juggling my time between working as a nurse in ICU and home-schooling I needed an outlet. One day we decided to ditch the schoolbooks and I dusted off my very old watercolours. I have never looked back! I have since been commissioned to do many urban landscapes and house portraits in the Edinburgh area. This is my first exhibition!”


Lucinda Storm

Painting is a response to the visual world and begins with direct observation in front of the subject matter. Light and its interaction with shape, pattern, colour, tone and form is a particular preoccupation.

The immediacy of watercolour, charcoal and pencil sketches quickly seizes the moment with more detailed studies completed in the studio. Oil sketches are also done on the spot to record more information. An online sketchbook logs daily ideas from which larger pieces emerge, often with return visits to the subject to glean more. Inspired by Eleanor Roosevelt’s adage, ‘Do one thing every day that scares you’, a painting a day, duly posted on social media has built a body of work that reflects my obsession with the natural world. It is difficult to escape the feeling that beautiful surroundings beg to be recorded in some way, usually a fleeting moment of light and colour. At its centre, the discipline of trying to express the atmosphere of a mesmeric juncture has a wonderfully meditative stillness to it. Finding some way to encapsulate an interior response to these moments both sustains and nourishes. Like the art of inhabiting the moment, authentic representation captures the many changes in the light effects on land, sky, and water. There is a signature to the landscape which consumes me. Attempting to pin down its arresting quality transforms the ordinary into something quite magical: the extraordinary.


Stephanie Thompson

“I love that nature connects to our feelings through its sense of space, weather, textures, colours, sounds, movement, and tidal rhythms. In my paintings, I aim to express something of that sensory and emotional experience of being in the landscape.

My creative process uses the physicality of oil paint, colours, textures, and gestural marks to capture my response. It is exciting as the dialogue takes place between canvas and paint, and this back-and-forth process eventually leads to the finished work. I hope my paintings give the viewer a sense of place and connection too.”



“I shoot almost exclusively on small format film and mechanical cameras. I have been shooting film since 2009, and I am completely a self-taught artist. It started as a process of documenting things, people, and memories that I didn’t want to forget.

Photography has always been a huge part of my life. When I was a young teenager, it quickly became my way of communicating with the outside world, and lately, when I dived into self-portraiture, it also became a way to discover the inside world as well, to express myself. It is a visual diary, personal and intimate in a way. Most of the models I work with are my closest friends and family, and most of the places you see in my photographs – are the places that are dear to my heart, either because I’ve lived there or the ones I’ve fallen in love with while travelling.”
