Helena Clews describes her approach to painting in oils, pastels, watercolours and mixed media as ‘merging landscape with abstraction’, and her focus is on local areas of coastline. Her practice explores the possibilities of painting in the liminal space between abstraction and representation, with visual information such as colour and gestural mark making alluding to something that is difficult to define or identify clearly as a particular thing in the world - yet being recognisable as an ‘abstract’ painting. 

Linda Tudor describes her subject matter as layers of nature which she explores with charcoal, pastel, oils and acrylic paints. Her studio overlooks the River Dart and her drawings and paintings are a creative response to her surroundings.
As well as teaching art design in Scotland and England for a number of years, she has exhibited nationwide and in Tokyo and Copenhagen. Linda has been tutored by Members of the New English Art Club as well as being mentored by a Fellow of the RCA.

Sue Bown’s style is expressive and gestural or, as she describes it, “big, bold and fun.”
"My art practice includes painting, drawing and printmaking techniques and sometimes a mixture of them all. My work is almost always shaped by what’s happening around me. Living beside the River Dart I notice the movement and shapes of daily life on the river. It is a constantly moving landscape, reforming itself as the tide and the occupants of the river carve their way through the water in endless motion. As soon as a shape is formed it is replaced by another. It’s an ebb and flow of forms, colours and life. I create my art in the same way, replicating shapes and forms, layering to capture the experience. I am fascinated by the way art is interpreted and how the eye wants to make sense of an abstracted image. As human beings we look for familiar references, motifs that have a meaning for us."
