The 5 artists are committed to interpreting landscape, urban shore and seascape as a core aspect of their work, which features drawing, painting, print-making, mixed media and ceramics. They believe that their work is complementary and offers a modern interpretation of our countryside and coastline.

Paul Fowler offers an expressive alternative to the traditional watercolour. Ruth McDonald is well known for her printed landscapes tracing the marks left by previous inhabitants. Karen Stamper creates bold boats, docks and harbours in paint and paper collage. Gillian Highland captures the landscape in her beautifully glazed raku pots and Barbara Colla’s lyrical sculptures offer a timeless interpretation of sea and woodland.

All 5 artists exhibit a high standard of excellence and professional competence and regularly exhibit in London including The Royal Academy Summer Show, Society of Women Artists, The Society of British Artists and United Society of Artists
