Emma’s recent works, including many still lives, bear an expressive use of line to portray everyday objects such as vases and teacups. An appreciation of pattern and form has been fundamental in creating these works. Looking at the influence of textiles on the work of Matisse has provided great inspiration.
In some of Emma’s most recent pieces, she tenderly draws and paints patterns over objects, which then spill over into the background, thus flattening out the picture plane. This transforms what could be a simply representational still life into a thoughtful and delicate abstract piece of work, exuding balance and harmony.

Nathalie is a French screen printer based in London. She works essentially from images taken from various sources that she transforms and enhances with an acute sense of colour.
She is interested in the narratives that inevitably take place within the arrangement of a newly composed print. She has recently been experimenting with digitally manipulated and printed images.
Through Nick’s practice, his aim is to capture the movement of running and to inspire people to take on their own personal marathon, whatever that might be. He is a screen printer and a painter, using acrylics and oils on canvas.
What draws him to long-distance running isn’t to be the fittest or the best but to reach his goals and overcome doubt. He believes anyone can exercise and wishes to inspire you and others through his art, to take to the streets, parks, mountains, and running tracks.
