I graduated from Brighton Polytechnic with a BA (Hons) Degree in Illustration in 1987.

I mostly work in acrylic or pencil and ink wash. My work can be seen in books, packaging, shop windows, on mugs, plates and walls too!

I work primarily in the fields of Editorial, Design and Advertising, and have considerable experience in designing and painting murals, and working as an Artist in Residence in schools.
One of my first commissions was to paint Harrods’ front window displays on a ‘Back to School’ theme. I worked with them further by illustrating press releases as the store developed and created the mural commemorating the history of their distribution facility, The Depository, when it relocated to Barnes.

I returned to Brighton for a six-week residency at the Brighton Evening Argus, to produce a colour supplement, a portrait of the newspaper for their 120th anniversary, as part of the Year of the Artist. These images were later reproduced as murals in the Newsquest Company offices.
I have produced numerous beautiful designs for cards and related products winning a prestigious USA Louis Award . I also enjoyed working for Tesco on a range of packaging. I like painting food!

I illustrated a revolutionary interactive touchscreen system for educational purposes at Metis physiotherapy centre, co-owned by Ian Wright as well as a ten-meter mural for their state-of-the-art Dance Studio.

I have exhibited work at Alexandra Palace, Battersea Town Hall, Bernard Weatherill House, and many other venues including Le Pinardier, Deal.

Graphics, typography, photography.

I have always had a love of the printed image. My earliest days I would have my head in a magazine or a newspaper transfixed by the type and photographs on the page. I studied lettering, typography and design at Medway College of Art but always had a love of photography and tried to combine all these forms together.

My natural route was magazine design and I joined a publishers in 1972 as promotions manager. I learnt my trade quickly under the guidance of some talented designers. I finally found my dream job in 1976 when I became art director for a London publishers allowing me to combine my love for typography and photography. Now, I have the time to follow my passion behind a Nikon camera and create images of my choice. The coastline offers exciting opportunities for the photographer whether it’s stormy clouds or images of Kent architecture or abstract composition.

alanbarrydavis@yahoo.co.uk

His Art teaching qualifications were gained at Stockwell College of Education, Bromley,(1965-68) where he specialized in screen-printing fabrics. After a teaching career in Art Education, he is now painting and print-making in Kingsdown and West Cork. On retirement he returned to screen-printing and more recently uses a combination of woodblock prints on fabric, enhanced with vibrant oil-colour. This has produced a range of images reflecting his deep interest in Celtic, and other ancient cultures, together with the local heritage of Deal’s environs.

His landscapes illustrate vernacular architecture and the passing of traditional rural life. He has recently explored digital media to compose more complex collages and prints from original works.
Having a base in lreland, he has regularly exhibited there, as well more local venues, and his work is widely collected.

In many ways I think my current interest and involvement in creating original but useful things has grown out of being a mother and a home maker. For years my focus was on enhancing the ambience and comfort of the home.

Starting a small neighbourhood craft group, prompted me look further afield for ideas, but with a particular emphasis on creative recycling. Much of what I make is transforming the redundant into something useful and hopefully beautiful. Currently one of my favourite materials is shrunken woollens which morph into a lovely felt material, great for waistcoats, bags, gloves, and my favourite, crazy hats.

I hope you enjoy looking at the things I have made and that they might give ideas to stimulate your own creativity.

I use stoneware and porcelain clays to create contemporary artworks, some wheel thrown and some hand built. I use slips, oxides and glazes to enhance handcarved patterns, texture and form. Many cultures and time periods influence my work as well as nature. I look at the patterns and patina of ‘found objects’ from beach coming and archaeology to create interesting and one off artworks.

Lorraine MACHIN MA
Fine art Print maker

Although I studied Fine Art in Painting at Kent University in 2004. I soon became aware that print making and all the techniques caught my imagination more.
Print making allowed me to use mixed media in new and exciting ways.
I then decided to do my MA in Fine Art print making at Christ Church University, in 2007.
My interest is in nature and organic form which inspires and influences each piece of abstract work. Taking inspiration from landscape,seascape or any organic object. The work evolves as the processes are blended into the final individual, unique Fine Art print.

I have always been drawing or painting and worked in the Graphic Arts for production of Newspapers, Books, Magazines, Commercial Advertising and eventually managed a Greeting Card company. I have more time now to indulge my passion for photography and painting in acrylics, watercolour and pen and ink.
My subjects are influenced by the countryside, the sea, dance and anything that captures my imagination. I recently finished some commissions which grace the walls in New York, Australia and The Channel Islands .
I hope you enjoy the work.

My glasswork usually incorporates glass fusing, with painting and
enamelling. I am inspired by the traditions of water colour and
printmaking we have in the UK, and by the natural world. I also enjoy
sketching using pastels.

In addition to SEAS and East Kent events, my work is represented in
the Avocet Gallery, Rye Harbour, and at Cambridge Contemprorary Crafts during the Christmas Season. You can find me on Facebook at Caroline Raffan Glass.

My degree is in Graphic Design and I find balance in using getting away from the computer by painting.
I am in love with both the beauty and the chaos which co-exist in nature. Weeds and wild flowers, storms and the ever changing moods of the seas.

Pamela Marietta SHIMELL

01304 852047

Pamela’s main career was as a management consultant, designing the first comprehensive Corporate Environmental Policy for a British PLC in 1987 and subsequently establishing Environmental Risk Management for accountant Arthur Andersen Inc in 1999. She moved to St Margaret’s Bay in Kent in 2016.

Like Turner (who went to Margate) she thinks the sun, the sea and the light in this area are so inspiring that she started to paint in August 2017 – something she loved to do at school, having had a painting exhibited at Fulham Library when she was 11 years old.

She loves to paint in oils because of the textures she can achieve – particularly the grains of sand on a beach and the cappuccino frothing of the waves on the sea shore.

She has a BA(Hons) degree from the University of Sussex. She is married with two sons, one of whom invests in art, and two grandchildren.. She also loves looking at 19th century oils in Tate Britain and the RA. She loves Waterhouse and John Singer Sargent. Van Gogh is a huge inspiration.

mike_tedder@hotmail.com

Mike Tedder is a graduate of Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge, now based in Dover, with a passion for mixed-media collage, photography and design. His work is inspired by many stimuli such as a dream, an emotion, language, something suddenly remembered, a song, or the experience of a particular moment. Exploring a juxtaposition of reality, fantasy, aesthetic and sensation, he seeks to examine the transient moments of real life experiences within both shared and autobiographical contexts. He has been commissioned, published and has exhibited in solo/group events across the UK, Europe & North America.

Heroes from Deal and WW1 inspire my printmaking this year.

My work focuses on local heroes and their true stories, particularly lifeboatmen, and their rescues from the Goodwin Sands and the seas around the East Kent coast.
The textures and patterns that lino and woodcutting produce help to add
drama and danger to the images, and I have explored rescues from Victorian times through to the First and Second World Wars, including rescues by Kentish boats from the
beaches of Dunkirk.
Some of my work is printed and stitched onto old sailcloth, and co
mmemorates real heroes and their bravery.
