Wendy Paxford Whilst being inspired by nature and the Landscape Wendy’s work draws upon

memories and experiences rather than specific location.

Isobel Cliff Three extended visits to the Australian Rainforests have left Isobel with powerful

impressions of their multi-layered beauty and mystery and of the presence of their former

aboriginal inhabitants. Her paintings are an emotional response to these.

Jill Jennings Jill is inspired by the coastlines and cliffs of Guernsey and also by patterns and marks

made in the landscape from Pre-historic times, sometimes combining both of these elements.

Pamela Leatherland Pamela’s paintings and glass works are an emotional response to her chosen

theme. She likes to explore the magic and mystery within the subject and to convey these feelings

to the spectator.

Nora Raufast My series of semi- abstract sculptural images was sparked off by visits to Henry

Moores home and studio and his exhibitions at Kew Gardens and the Tate.

Angela Vyvyan The exuberant paintings of 80 years old Gillian Ayres has been the most recent

inspiration for Angela and for her present body of work.
