Annette Jackson

Beautiful stained glass by Annette Jackson.

Annette's says of her work, "My stained glass is inspired by our lovely magical wildlife & beautiful countryside. I make illustrative, picture bookish windows, often using British wildlife as my main focus."

Her windows are leaded, made in the traditional way. Very little has changed since the 11th century in the way that stained glass windows are made. Annette says that it is this fact that drew her to the craft in the first place.

Mel Chambers

The exhibition features Mel's lovingly crafted ceramic tiles.

Mark Duffin

We're really excited to see the new paintings that Mark has created especially for 'Winter Fairy Tales' - we love his ethereal trees and mystical landscapes created in rich colours, and even a dragon or two!.

Clare Buchta

Clare enjoys creating original painting and printing methods to express her view of the natural world. Monoprinting and oil painting using her own special techniques produces original land and seascapes in an individual style.

Brenda Hurley

Brenda's wonderful paintings with high key colour and elements of design and texture. There is strength and a sense of drama through the use of colour; the work goes beyond the representative and towards the abstract. Brenda’s landscape paintings are not just about the mark on the landscape but also about the history and forgotten footsteps, the marks that are left under the soil.

Dawn Coulter-Cruttenden

Dawn Coulter-Cruttenden is a Northern Irish artist based between London and Donegal. Her work is mainly in graphite, gold leaf and watercolour with recurring themes of fairytales, myths and legends. Much of her creative influence comes from the Pre Raphaelites, art nouveau and of illustrators such as Arthur Rackham and Edmund Dulac.

In 2016 Dawn became the first woman to be an artist in residence at The Savoy Hotel, London. Her drawings and limited edition prints are becoming collectable throughout Ireland and the UK with originals selling out very quickly. She will be exhibiting at The Mall Galleries, London in December 2017. Her art is in private collections worldwide including LA, London, Ireland and Australia. .
