Kerry Darlington is a Welsh artist, born 1974 in Rhyl, North Wales. She was heavily inspired by magical fairy tale picture books and stories during her childhood, and had a particular love for Arthur Rackham's intricate pen and ink work. This influenced her to take a degree in Illustration, with intentions of becoming a children's book Illustrator. Following this she discovered ‘Art Nouveau’ and the Pre-Raphaelite artists’. She found this work so hauntingly beautiful that it absorbed her and it still has a profound effect on her own art.  



On her original pieces, Kerry works with texture, acrylics and resin. She works in layers to build up depth and create more light. She uses resin as a medium rather than a varnish on the original paintings.



With her ‘Unique Editions’, whilst in essence they are prints, each one is some way unique. She creates small 3D additions which are hand-worked individually and adhered to the print. The background is also hand embellished, and all the work has resin hand-applied, making each print look like an original painting.

She found this work so hauntingly beautiful that it absorbed her and it still has a profound effect on her own art.

For the last seven years Kerry has built a reputation for her original, decorative designs which became hugely popular, focusing primarily on trees and nature.
She recently took the decision to release her book Illustrations as Unique Edition prints - the ‘Midnight Garden’ sold out within a month and her ‘Mad Hatters Tea Party’ was so popular that it sold-out rapidly before obtaining high values on the secondary market. Her book illustration work is next to include ‘Peter Pan’ by J.M. Barrie and ‘The Magic Faraway Tree’ by Enid Blyton.
In May 2012 she was awarded ‘Best-Selling Published Artist’ at a ceremony by the Fine Art Trade Guild.

Born in Bristol in 1972, Doug became aware of his artistic talent at an early age.

Throughout his school and college education he concentrated on the technical side of drawing and painting, but after graduation he was in no doubt as to his chosen career, that of a professional artist.

Doug prefers to produce his distinctive artwork on a large scale, in order to achieve maximum impact with each piece. He also enjoys operating in plenty of space, thus allowing himself enough physical freedom to express the creative energy that is the key to his fresh, contemporary style.

His unorthodox use of pastels applied with fingers and thumbs or even the side of a hand or wrist allows him to create highly communicative and engaging images that make an immediate and lasting impression on the viewer.Inspired by his own emotional responses to life, Doug's intention is to provoke an emotional response in others; his success in this aim can be seen by the huge impact his newly released collection has made on the British art scene.

As one of the UKs most innovative and uplifting young artists, we look forward to his inevitable rise with great excitement!"I hope people can feel a connection with my work, and share the positive emotions behind it.

One of the keys to Doug's enduring success is that his appeal reaches such a wide audience. From culture loving aesthetes who spend their holidays browsing round the Louvre or the Uffizi to those who find the very thought of entering a gallery intimidating, his work crosses the whole spectrum and transcends cultural boundaries.
This rare quality of universality is perhaps due to the fact that Doug's compositions communicate with us so directly, referring to the human experience as a whole in a way that we can all recognise. Take "Monday, Wednesday, Friday" for instance. Who hasn't felt a little down in the mouth when the alarm goes off on a Monday morning, and who doesn't feel their heart lighten as Friday draws to a close? Doug's enchanting triptych brings the week to life for us in a way that everyone can relate to. Whether we are being presented with ideas about love, laughter, friendship, adventure or generosity, Doug's work always finds a way to reach out and touch us personally.

Ian Rawling - Take Five



Limited edition porcelain sculpture of 195

Size: 9" x 11"

£155

Includes the publisher certificate of authenticity

FREE INSURED DELIVERY

Born in 1966 in Norfolk, Ian Rawling graduated with a degree in design from Sheffield Art College. Ian Rawling started out working as an illustrator and designer and was very sucessful although he decided that he wanted more out of his artwork than simply to make a living. He went on to work full time for himself and made an immediate impact on the art world by producing some very stylised and bold imagery. Ian Rawling finds his inspiration through people watching and the situations we all regularly encounter. He uses techniques such as exaggeration and repetition, working mainly in pastels to bring his characters to life. The Monty Python humour, the cartoon genius Gary Larson and Norman Rockwell the 1950's artist have been immensely influential in Ian Rawlings' work.
