About The Artist

Ingrid Skoglund is a mix of German and Swedish, although born in Ash in Surrey where she still lives and paints.

She has had a lifelong passion for watercolour although her main focus for over 20 years was as Managing Director of a demanding business. Selling out a few years ago, allowed her finally to take up painting full time.

Ingrid is pretty much self-taught, so doesn't have too many rules and loves trying to push watercolour to its limits - in particular to mix it with dye and foil to give a chaotic vibrancy . She also like to mix botanical accuracy with the abstract . She is currently building her portfolio of galleries and exhibitions and is amazed by the interest in her work.

Ingrid's website includes galleries of her paintings of views, animals, flowers, portraits and figures, acrylics and abstracts.

"I work unconventionally with various media to produce unexpected and unpredictable effects. I rarely use a brush and am currently working with the toxic fumes of alcohol ink and isopropyl although the beautiful translucent effects are worth it. A photo of the work just can’t capture it so if you like the image – the real thing is even better – just beautiful. I also often work with acrylic and silicone oil – pushing the mix around with a hot hairdryer and finishing off with a blow torch.

I don’t do cards or prints and I can’t replicate a piece of work . If you buy one of my pieces it’s not just original it’s totally unique. "

The sun sets over the harbour.
Fiery, glowing rays
Rebound off the gentle ripples.
Time to reflect on the day.

About The Artist

I went to sea at 15 with the Royal Navy and came ashore again 12 years later having experienced typhoons in the Pacific, hurricanes in the Atlantic, the deep freeze of the Arctic and monsoons of the tropics; but such beauty everywhere.

Then after 3 years in commerce which was illuminating but boring, I became a Financial Adviser for the next 47 years, which on balance I found wonderfully fulfilling.

Even after all that time, salt water still flows through my veins but I love the dry land and all its surprises too.

I have had no formal training but had been painting in water colour on and off for about twenty years. After trying acrylics in about 2015 the bug bit: I had to become a painter!

About The Artist

June F Martin, known as Florenca, was born in Dublin. She came to London in the early 70’s and only took up painting a few years ago, not influenced by any great painter but by the galleries in Cork Street London. Prior to this, she only painted for her own enjoyment.

Compositions are in Oil on Canvas. She is especially fond of painting landscapes and has been inspired by views from her travels. She just enjoys painting and would welcome commissions to paint landscapes of your favourite holiday snaps.

Subsequently, Mark joined the Sunbury Art Group for a few years, but due to business commitments, discontinued painting until some 15 years later. In 2007 he joined the Littleton Artists Group, where he learnt to paint in oils under the tutelage of professional artist John Green.

About The Artist

‘I aspire to create “Visible Feelings” that can be shared by those who care to pause and wonder. I call upon my life’s experiences to inspire me and I let the feeling emerge in my work. I have been amazed, and sometimes disturbed, by what I have learned about myself through my paintings. I am so much richer for knowing myself better.’
Alan Brain
Alan Brain Vapour-Trails

Alan Brain discovered painting about twelve years ago when he attended a water colouring class with some friends. It led to a change of direction that he has never regretted. Today, his unique style, combined with spiritual awareness, produces works of unusual vibrancy and colour. As a former pilot and constant flyer, the immensity of the heavens with its changing moods has fascinated Alan. It features in many of his paintings where he manages to capture the vastness and mysteriousness of space.
His early years in Japan may have enhanced his bold view of landscapes and skies and you can see in his work the influence of wonderful open spaces to be found in places such as Wales, Arizona, New Mexico and Africa, all of which Alan visits regularly. However, such harmony with nature cannot be taught, it is an intrinsic part of the artist that we are fortunate to glimpse.

Alan exhibits several times a year in and around his home in Chobham Surrey, England. His work has been accepted for several prestigious exhibitions in London, including the Guild of Aviation Artists and the Society of Marine Artists. Alan also applies his teaching skills (he was a Flying Instructor) and helps his fellow artists through his course called ‘Find You Own Painting Direction’ and by one to one tuition. He believes it is important to give something back to those less fortunate than ourselves and is a strong supporter of the Samaritans charity; a percentage from his painting sales are contributed to his local branch.
