As an artist, my work is a reflection of my personal beliefs and experiences. It is my belief that beauty lies in the simplicity of life, and my work aims to convey this message. Every painting I create is a reflection of my inner feelings and creativity. As a mother, I have had the opportunity to connect with my inner child and capture this innocence and naivety in my artwork.
In my natural surroundings, I find the inspiration to create art that captures the essence of Earth and Sky. The colours I use in my paintings are carefully mixed until I achieve a perfect harmony. Blue is a personal favourite of mine, and experimenting with its different shades and depths is always an exciting challenge. Soft pinks and vibrant reds are also incorporated, and I use them subtly to evoke warmth and comfort.
The stories I read to my son inspire my art, such as the tales of cosy cottages and starry nights. By depicting these fantasies through my paintings, I endeavour to transport viewers back to a state of innocence and wonder. I hope that you enjoy the passion I have for my work and the stories they inspire.

Sabrina, an artist born in 1980 on the Isle of Wight, currently resides in Cowes, which is known as the home of the famous Regatta. Sabrina spends her leisure time sketching new artworks on the Marine Esplanade.
Her recent trip to Devon has inspired her to create a naïve seaside series that reflects the place’s character—cottage rows lined up on banks of green foliage by the water’s edge with vibrant color being her primary focus. Sabrina has recently started experimenting with charcoal, using it for preliminary sketching and painting. Combining acrylic paint, acrylic inks, pastel, and charcoal, she created the elephant paintings to replicate old photographs tucked away for years.
This year, she has also been working with soft pastels on top of acrylic paint, providing amazing colors and fascinating textures. Sabrina’s New York paintings are based on a trip to the city a few years ago; the city’s hustle and bustle was incredibly stimulating to her.

Angie Thomas grew up at the centre of the yachting community, on the river Hamble, within a big family of sailors, shipwrights and artists. Originally trained in catering, Angie possesses an artistic flare as both chef and painter. Moving to the Isle of Wight with her young family in the ‘70s, Angie takes her inspiration from her love of nature, the Island, it`s people and animals.
As a self-taught artist, her work has become widely collected over the years. Angie’s love of the wild garden she and her husband have built and grown in the picturesque village of Brading, overlooking the sea, can be seen in her successful range of bold, floral designs.
She is particularly interested in the essence of her subjects, which she captures with her wicked sense of humour, portraying people, animals and flowers with both warmth and familiarity that we all recognize and love. ”I`ve always loved the quirkiness in the nature of people and animals, and try to share this in my work. This is the first time in my life I`ve been without pets in my house and miss them very much, I now find myself painting them more often, perhaps because of this.”

In 1976 Anthony decided to make painting his full time profession and retired from his business life in sales and marketing.

Until fairly recently he was best known for his atmospheric watercolours which have been exhibited in many galleries throughout the country including the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour.
