Open Studio Artist – Eileen Rowell


‘I specialise in painting vibrant, richly coloured canvasses portraying semi-abstract scenes focussing on colour, texture, rhythms and patterns of nature that reflect my passion for colour line and form. I also design and make unique fashion jewellery using semi precious materials.’

Open Studio Artist – Kate Usher


‘As a parent, I felt frustrated by the lack of imagination offered in the form of textiles and decoration for children’s rooms. Bored of predictable motifs and tasteless design, I set out to break the mould. Many parents prefer tasteful and unique interiors whilst children require stimulation, through colour, pattern and inspiring pictures. I was all about finding the right balance and compromise! At Kate Usher Studio, we strive to create innovative and exciting wallpapers for interior spaces which cater to the needs of both style savvy adults and their fun-loving children.We believe in bridging the fantasies of children and the tastes of adults to achieve a more liveable, creative and unique family home.’

Open Studio Artist – Richard Henry Hurst


We are proud to reveal that we will have visiting artist Richard Henry Hurst selling some of his delicate water colour prints at our open studios event. Richard describes his work as records of his “…emotional connection to the moorland landscapes of the north, to the elements, seasons and time of day, to variations in light and humidity. Using a variety of techniques, sometimes combining pictures
from different periods of his life, he works with washes of colour to form images of feeling and transience. His prints, which will be exhibited, are taken from his paintings. The scanned images are cropped and digitally enhanced to form new works which are then printed.”

To see more of his work, come along to our open studio eventĀ
