Rozanne Bell - Reflections 4 (Original)




Rozanne Bell - Reflections 4

Original acrylic on board - glazed

 £995

Image size: 24" x 24"    Framed size: 34" x 34"




Rozanne Bell is the epitome of fun. She is a flamboyant gregarious character with a unique creative imagination that knows no bounds. Rozanne has a sunny disposition, full of originality and wit. She is an exciting and entertaining person; full of energy and vibrancy and her art mirrors all these qualities. Rozanne has five children and her artwork is embroidered into the heart of her family life.

Rozanne Bell was born in Zimbabwe and she lived there for 40 years. She exhibited all over southern Africa and, through tourism, an American market for her work evolved. From Guernsey to Ghana her paintings hang in many banks and boardrooms all over the world.

In 2002, the situation in Zimbabwe necessitated Rozanne's move to England. Rozanne's ability to adapt to a new environment coupled with her optimistic determination to succeed had brought a breath of fresh air to the British art market. The latest works by Rozanne Bell exhibit her unique view of an architectural landscape encompassing a curious and whimsical character combined with a realism and grittiness unequalled in the art world today.

Born in Mirfield, West Yorkshire, Nigel Cooke joined the Merchant Navy after leaving school and subsequently has held a number of jobs on the road to becoming a full-time artist.

Nigel Cooke sold his first painting at the age of 14 and joined Butlins as their resident caricaturist and entertainer in 1992.  He later went on to open caricature concessions on Blackpool’s Central Pier and Pleasure Beach, in the Trafford Centre Mall in Manchester, and at Alton Towers.

During this time Nigel Cooke estimates the number of caricatures completed from live sittings to be in excess of  50,000.

Henderson Cisz - Along The Southbank

£735

framed box canvas limited edition of 195

image size: 43" x 20"





Cisz was born in 1960 in Brazil. He grew up on a small village, which is interesting in the fact that he lovingly captures on canvas the natural hustle and bustle of his cityscapes. 

His artistic talent was visible from a young age but never thought of becoming an artist. Instead, he settled down in the banking industry and only continued art as a hobby. 

However, by his mid-twenties he decided that his art was more important to him than his banking career. So, in 1986 he moved to London to enable him to study painting and never looked back. 

Cisz loves to travel, and has visited parts of Europe, Australia and his native South America. Most of his art features scenes from the world’s most beautiful cities. 

His art work is created through the use of acrylic, oil or watercolours on canvas, and he uses soft tones to create the atmosphere of his subject. His paintings are regularly displayed in London galleries and international art fairs.

Ben Payne - original paintings


Ben Payne - Ocean Elements (original oil on canvas)

£1,150

image size: 20" x 30"

framed size: 27" x 37"

This original oil on stretched canvas by Ben Payne, comes professionally mounted and is framed with a thick brushed aluminium frame and includes the publishers certificate of authenticity.





Ben Payne - Seafront View (original oil on canvas)

£1,275

image size: 24" x 36"

framed size: 31" x 42"

This original oil on stretched canvas by Ben Payne, comes professionally mounted and is framed with a thick brushed aluminium frame and includes the publishers certificate of authenticity.


Ben Payne has built a reputation for creating artwork which is fresh, escapist and above all, uplifting. Born in Surrey in 1975, he began drawing portraits and painting as a hobby; by the age of 16 he was selling his work, and he has now developed into a major British talent. Although he is almost completely self-taught Ben is able to respond to challenges and create artwork that is both technically accomplished and highly accessible.
Ben’s degree from Southampton University is a world apart from his artistic life, yet the influence of his academic and professional background can be observed in his art. After graduating in Psychology he became an independent therapist and pursued a career in the field of Autism, working with young children, helping them to overcome their difficulties in communicating with the outside world. Whilst pursuing this career he continued painting in his spare time, teaching himself and extending his range into oils.
Ben’s high-impact land, sky and seascapes are inspired by the landscapes and coastlines around the world. He owes an artistic debt to a range of artists, in particular Turner and Whistler. Their influence can be seen in the way he captures the appearance of clouds with such delicacy, while employing a vivid and dramatic palette – a characteristic which lends his work an ethereal quality.
Ben believes that working with children has taught him to value simplicity and to communicate in a very direct and accessible language. His powerful paintings do display a certain innocence which somehow sets them part from the work of his contemporaries. While his subjects are realistic they often have dreamlike overtones, rendering them an intriguing combination of enchantment and sophistication.

Sarah Louise Ewing - Sunset Meadow (original)


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.

£795

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.

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.
