Sarah Louise Ewing - Sunset Meadow (original painting)


£795


original acrylic on board


Image size: 23" x 23"
Framed size: 33" x 33"

Comes double framed in publishers frame and includes a certificate of authenticity

Sarah has been fascinated with drawing and painting from early childhood. At just three years of age, she presented her father with an accurate and fully 3D sketch of a pram.

Sarah’s background is in formal portraiture, where she has honed her talent for detail and technical excellence, using many of the traditional techniques favoured by the Old Masters.

Her latest body of work steps away from portraiture into the world of abstract expressionism. Her collection addresses the tension between the movement and energy of colour, light and texture. Her work purposefully has no narrative, enabling the viewer to create their own and in doing so, interact directly with the painting. To create each piece, Sarah employs a wide variety of media including plaster, paste, gesso, resin and semi-precious stones.

In 2006, Sarah’s work was identified by Turner Prize Winning artists Gilbert & George, who praised her for excellent technical accomplishment. Sarah has exhibited widely, including shows at The Mall Galleries, London and with The Society of Women Artists.

Sarah lives near Stroud, on the edge of the Cotswolds, with her husband and three cats.
Sarah Louise Ewing is one of the UK's most exciting contemporary abstract painters, with a growing number of collectors eager for her work. Her use of colour, texture and innovative technique deliver intense paintings full of energy and emotion.

Sarah's works has been published in national magazines and newspapers as well as appearing on ITV and Channel 4 television.

David Renshaw - Field Of Dreams (original)
£895
original oil on board
image size: 15" x 31"
framed size: 27" x 43"
double framed in publishers frame and includes a certificate of authenticity

Deep down David Renshaw always knew what he wanted to do for a living.In my school years I remember my dad teaching me some basic elements of drawing using light and shade in pencils and I dreamed of one day becoming an artist.
Being only really interested in art David Renshaw left school and studied Graphic Design at Southport college after which he found work and started at a local art gallery as a picture framer.
Needing to support his young family he worked in the art and picture framing industry for twelve years but also managed to paint part time producing mainly private commissions for people at the same time developing new techniques and ideas.
Although David enjoyed his job he still knew that this was not the life he really wanted and he eventually decided it was time to follow his dreams and with the support of his wife and two children he took the plunge, leaving his job to concentrate on painting full time.

Allan Morgan - Golden Meadows


£795


original painting

acrylic on board

image size: 19" x 19"

framed size: 32" x 32"



double framed in publishers frame and includes a certificate of authenticity


Allan Morgan is a full time artist living on the borders of England and Wales.
Born in 1952 he graduated from Coventry (Lanchester) Art College with a BA Honours in Fine Art.
Since then his professional career has focused mainly on realist landscape and seascape paintings, although he has enjoyed considerable success as an illustrator.  He has recently expanded his style to encompass a more ‘colourist’ approach in much of his work.
Allan’s inspirations are his love of light, colour and atmosphere in landscape.  His influences are many and varied, from the Pre-Raphaelites to impressionism, and his paintings have that timeless quality which many leading artists strive for and often never achieve.

Doug Hyde - Heart & Soul (open edition book)


Doug Hyde - Heart & Soul (open edition book)


£95

The collection ‘Heart and Soul’ represents everything that is best in the world of contemporary art. Uplifting and accessible, it is also technically accomplished and aesthetically rewarding, in other words, vintage Hyde. The highlight is the launch of his latest book, which lends its name to this landmark collection.

Doug’s highly communicative and engaging images make an immediate and lasting impression on the viewer. Doug has been featured on television both on the BBC news and on Channel 4 describing his unique technique and talking about the people and events that inspire his heart-warming images. His extraordinary rise from virtual unknown to fine art phenomenon has been meteoric, and his stunning Original Pastels have become genuine collectors' items. He was named as UK Artist of the Year in 2006 and was described by BBC Arts Correspondent David Sillito as the UK’s most popular living artist. Doug’s innovative style speaks directly to people’s emotions by summarising love, desires, wishes and dreams, and has turned him into a genuine artist of the people, for the people.

Congratulations are also due to Doug, whose international reputation continues to go from strength to strength. Doug last year completed a whirlwind tour of Japan where he spent two weeks making personal appearances, giving interviews and meeting collectors up and down the country. The trip was such a success he is returning later this year cementing his status as Japan’s favourite artistic import.
