Self taught mixed media artist based in Thornbury. I paint atmospheric skies, abstract birch trees and loose florals. I like working with texture and gold leaf.

Agnieszka Richards


Embracing the fusion of imagination and entertainment, my husband and I embarked on the journey of Safari Rock Soft Play, a visionary concept crafted to evoke joy in both adults and children alike. Within our establishment, we curate an oasis of playfulness, boasting soft play facilities tailored for our little guests, complemented by a cafe offering delectable takeaway options.
Our creative expression finds its zenith in the meticulously hand-painted artwork adorning our walls, each stroke infused with the spirit of iconic venues like Hard Rock Cafe and The Rainforest Cafe. Drawing inspiration from these legendary locales, our artworks seamlessly marry the majesty of Safari animals with the flair of renowned musicians, resulting in an immersive sensory experience unlike any other. Can you see who inspired each painting?

Aimee Winter-Tuck


I have been drawing, painting, sewing and making since my earliest memories. Brought up in the Herefordshire countryside, I moved to Bristol to study Illustration (BA Hons) at Bower Ashton, UWE, where I now work in the Fashion and Textiles Department. 
Continually inspired by the glories of nature, I love to sketch and paint in fields, gardens and on beaches. Drawn to colour and texture, I enjoy the physical process and layered qualities of oil painting. Using brush, knife and improvised tools, this is a happy way for me to capture the vibrant pattern of my surroundings.

Alison Stephenson


Amanda’s work is semi abstract, full of symbolic figures and animals existing in strange landscapes.
The narrative is created during the painting and mark making process. 
Images that are presented to the viewer are scenes that are playful yet can be challenging .
Amanda’s painterly language has developed over the years from enjoying the intuitive process by exploring colour and form , however the themes explored are constant and still remain authentic and heartfelt.
Amanda has reoccurring myths in her work such as the princess with the 13 eyes, big city life rabbit and the poncho wearing cowboy.
The scenes that come to life during her fast painterly process are raw and personal , fragile and dark themes are often explored such as coming to terms with loss, relationships, reflection, protection, illness and death.
Amanda gains inspiration from being in the natural Gloucestershire landscape and her work is often inspired by song lyrics and playing the banjo.

Amanda Griffiths


Angela has been a professional mosaic artist for over 12 years and co-founded TomatoJack Arts in berkeley along with Lynda Knott, where they still teach regular mosaic workshops. 
Angela's mosaic artwork has developed over the years but she is still inspired by geometric abstract shapes in the landscape and her surroundings, she explores these architectural qualities by using different textures and perspectives.

Ange Williams


I am an artist living in Thornbury, having graduated from Falmouth University 2022.  I produce original, hand drawn black and white artworks using fine point ink pens depicting local scenes, buildings and life observations from around Thornbury, which I hope you will enjoy.  I also produce editorial illustrations which you can see on my website.

Angela Colquhoun

Pen and Ink Illustration

Not drawn to photographic reality I prefer the magical unpredictability of water and pigment left to 
its own devices with very little intervention on my part.
I currently favour expressive intuitive landscapes and have almost entirely abandoned traditional 
brushwork in favour of liquid watercolour, or pure pigment to paper, then water manipulation in 
several forms and bamboo pen or palette knife marks.
My inspiration is mainly drawn from the beautiful riverside village in which I live, but away from 
home I am drawn to wild landscapes and shorelines.

Angela Scrivin


Ocean inspired jewellery using New Zealand Paua shell, semi-precious stones and freshwater pearls. I create a variety of necklaces, bracelets and earrings. I also make a range of greeting cards.

Anne Lewandowska


I am a painter of landscapes, animals, birds and flowers.

Anne McAllister


Caroline is a multidisciplinary artist who uses maps, photographs and documents as reference to make layers of marks with textiles, print, cyanotype, acrylic paint and mixed media.

Caroline Stealey

Textiles and Mixed Media

I enjoy producing art work as it allows my thoughts, feelings and imagination to explore, express and create works in oil, acrylic and mixed media. I have limited classical training in oils but much comes from my own pursuit of fun. I have worked on commissions and private paintings that hopefully inspire and delight others.

Carrie Oliver


Catherine is a ceramicist producing both functional and decorative pieces in stoneware and porcelain. She enjoys exploiting a variety of finishes, such as Raku and slip decoration.

Catherine Hall


I have been making semi- abstract paintings in oil or acrylic. These are from sketches made in the landscape during my walks in the local area. Composition, colour and atmosphere are important factors for interpreting my feelings in visual form. The use of texture and different media, sometimes collage, helps my journey in this to remain an exciting one, retaining an element of mystery and imagination.

Christine Dack


I almost exclusively work on landscapes of the local area. My detailed work in acrylic captures the countryside in every season. I have a fascination for the construction of fields juxtaposing one against another and the colours from the foreground to the distance. I enjoy spending time just to look and absorb and draw the landscape for my next painting. In recent years I’ve been concentrating on bringing greater colour and depth to my paintings. As well as original paintings and giclée prints I also have cushions/clocks/mugs and other items my work is printed on.

Claire Failes


I create vessels that relate to and have dialogue with each other, their environment and those who interact with them both visually and by touch. This communication occurs by engaging in many ways, physical, spatially, emotionally, and spiritually. My forms capture this interaction, that precious essence of ‘being-with’, that can facilitate acceptance, dialogue, and potential for our well-being and collaboration.
Using a selection of clays, terra sigillata’s and glazes illustrate the diversity of those materials.  Their use reflects qualities, presence and diversity within humanity which have used ceramics in countless ways for millennia.

Clare Stephens


I am an artist with painting and drawing at the heart of my practice. I make work deeply connected to a sense of place in response to particular landscape features that have had a profound effect on me, mostly in tidal and coastal areas. The locations I choose and the focus of my attention is highly selective and personal, one that evokes a very strong, emotional, felt response. Central to my practice is the use of pure colour which I make from pigment.

Clare Thatcher


Pottery bowls, mugs, jugs, cookware, vases, tiles, fridge magnets, pendants and animals.  Also coral sculptures, Raku and pit-fired pots, new abstract sculptures and foam pressed bowls and trays. 
Come and see my pottery studio and display. I am happy to explain making and different firing methods.

Emily Craig


Frances's work seeks to evoke memories of specific places through an abstract lens, revealing the instinct we have to associate colour, shape and form to tangible places. Through printmaking and painting she works to inspire memories of places, alongside exploring how landscapes and nature change seasonally through areas of distressed textures and smooth softly painted forms.

Holly Dunham


I am an oil painter.

Not always, but forever will be - immersed in the natural world.
I'm attracted to various subjects, but favour landscapes and painting outdoors.

A representational painter, I mix my colours using 3 primaries + white.
My approach - loose, expressive, evident brushstrokes with thick knife-paint.
Enough visual information to convey a picture, but viewed up-close, simply marks. An illusion.

Thick oils have a presence and physicality, the surface ‘a life of its own’.
It draws the touch, the artwork not only an image but an object.

Art is for us all - I like to share mine.

James Gadbury


I am a photographer from Frampton Cotterell that has been interested in photography from an early age, as well as developing a keen interest in wildlife and nature.
My photographs are mainly of wildlife and nature, capturing them in their own environment. I also work in landscape photography, showing the essence of my surroundings.
Most of my art is from the Outer Hebrides, mainly the Isles of Harris and Lewis, although I also take photographs more locally and other places around the UK.

I have a passion for creating beautiful and useful objects from wood. Few things give me as much joy as to collaborate with the wood to create something and to see it find a new home where it will be loved and cared for. It is important to me that the wood I use is responsibly and locally sourced.

A collection of work from fused glass hangings to mixed media landscape and floral paintings. 
Some of the glass hangings enclose botanical plant forms. The original plant forms are burnt away in the firing of the kiln leaving many varied imprints in the form of "ghost fossils" other glass is expressed through vibrant colours and surface. 
Paintings are developed using an individual technique of distressing paper which is then worked into mixed media.

Louise Guest

Glass and Painting

I have always loved to experiment! From scientist to mosaic artist, I am constantly playing with new materials, intrigued by how they interact with each other. Inspiration springs from my immediate environment, often the forgotten or overlooked. 
Recent experiments have focused on my fascination with the detritus of my bonfire and the surrounding forgotten landscapes and remnants of human interventions. I aim to create a nonconventional beauty using found objects and partially burnt timbers, enhanced with mosaic, gold smalti or gilding.

After a career in research biochemistry, I co-founded TomatoJack Arts in 2011 - a mosaic studio in Berkeley, Gloucestershire. I am a Professional Member of the British Association for Modern Mosaic, and I continue to expand my practice by attending workshops in many varied media. My art is now more accurately described as mixed media and I am continually trying new techniques as well as experimenting with new materials.

Lynda Knott

Nic Driver

Ink Painting

I work in watercolours, alcohol inks and fused glass to create artistic pieces reflecting nature. My painting style is inspired by Chinese brush painting techniques where pigments flow in the water or alcohol to give the pictures translucency and movement. I donate profits to The Woodland Trust for the planting and care of native Trees

Nicky Stone

Painting and Glass

Predominantly a painter, I enjoy colour and texture, and frequently experiment mixing media and styles.
My subject matter is as varied as my media. I am inspired by nature and landscape; look carefully as sometimes it may not always be quite as it seems.
My real enthusiasm is aroused when I see an opportunity to explore and express the more difficult subject matters we are exposed to.

Nicola Latham

I create pictures using sea glass and beach finds. I also use the sea glass to make simple but elegant jewellery and I’ve also recently started using resin to replicate the waves and also incorporated beach finds. The beach is a running theme in my work, I have always been inspired by a trip to the seaside!

Rosa Fitzgerald

Collage, Jewellery and Resin

Rosemary Millar


The work is rooted in drawing but encompasses painting and sculpture. Using caricature as a means of stepping outside the 'Self' there is a playfulness that leans heavily on the Absurd.

Thomas Woodman-Povey


A water colour wildlife artist living in Dursley. My love of animals and nature reflects in my art. 

I am a passionate artist whose heart beats with a love for capturing the beauty of animals and nature through the delicate medium of watercolour. I go all out when I paint animals and nature in watercolour from the tiniest whisker on a hare's nose to the veins of a leaf that catch the light. Living in the countryside serves as a wellspring of inspiration for my paintings.

Yasmin Jones


Abstract representational paintings evoking a feeling of time and place. Currently working with acrylics and resins which is a tightrope walk between control and chance.
