Kate Baker is a mosaic and glass fusion artist from Deal, Kent. Influenced by Nature and its beauty, her visual and tactile work draws inspiration from picturesque landscapes and seascapes within her locality. Working in two mediums and utilising picque-assiette style her pieces have a vibrancy where incorporating texture, colour, flow and movement is key. Each piece you view is handmade; crafted with passion and individuality, so is totally unique.

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.
I love colour. Some of my paintings are expressionist and some observational.

Colourful woodcut/oils reflecting both local heritage and ancient imagery.
Fine Art, Ceramics
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.

Painter / printmaker / mixed-media
Mixed media juxtaposition of dreams, realities and sensations from life.
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.

Printmaker & Painter
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.
