The artists taking part are...

Vic’s collection of oven gloves and tea towels combine hand drawn designs with digital compositions and stencilled prints to create vibrant contrasting pattern.

LOUISE BOULTER

Louise is a 3rd year fine artist with a strong interest in drawing and painting. She focuses on using oil paint as a process to explore narrative within a domestic space. She is driven by use of line and colour.

GABBY RICHARDSON

EMMA HINDER

EMMA GRAY-CORNELL

RAPH THOMAs

Raph Thomas is a young artist and illustrator based in South- West London. He studied Art in Kingston before completing a degree in Ancient History, a subject that has influenced the character of many of his works. His Bird series, which is ongoing, is inspired by travels in the tropics and an interest in natural history; he employs bright colours and portrait- like compositions to capture the vivacity of nature.

STEPHEN DOAK

Stephen trained in art at Central School of Art and has recently returned to painting with acrylics. A recent visit to Monkey World led to the production of his current portfolio which celebrates the protection afforded to these beautiful creatures. Stephen uses both traditional media and digital drawing techniques (using an iPad) to create bold images for illustrating his range of self-published children’s books.
