M A Addison
Fascinated by the physical form of text and decoration that adorns medieval manuscripts, Rosi illustrates words and quotations using quills, metal nibs and 22ct Gold Leaf onto canvas, slate, papers and vellum.
Gold leaf on vibrant watercolours contrast with large textured and lettered inscriptional panels, gilded stone tiles, formal calligraphy, hand scripted books and all manner of commissioned work.
I was born 3 doors from the mainline to Cleethorpes and Smith Clayton forge. The house continually shook. Drawing and Painting required nerves of steel. I work from object,figure and landscape with the aid of abstraction.
Briarly Jane Brown
Lincoln based artist studying with local life and portrait groups. A member of the Nadin Group and now part of the voluntary team supporting the Sam Scorer Gallery. I love to paint and draw, exhibiting when I can locally, searching for the great elusive image that will save the planet.
Originally Norwegian and now based in Boston, I love to draw and paint the local landscape and busy market towns of Lincolnshire. A combination of ink drawing and watercolour paint is my preferred medium. I also enjoy travelling to the seaside painting boats and coastal landscapes, perhaps as a memory of growing up in the fjords of Western Norway.
“Most of my work is carved in stone and the themes are mainly abstract. This work is carved from a piece of Ancaster limestone which came in the South of the county where it was formed millions of years ago, about 20 miles form my home/studio. It is an abstract sculpture based on plant forms.”
I paint primarily in oils and landscapes are my main subject. I also work with watercolour, pen and ink and photography. I moved to Lincolnshire from Sheffield around 20 years ago.
Working with collage and grid structures and processes, my work responds to their mutual relationship through traditional means of drawing and colour, cut paper and low relief. I use photocopied and handwritten text to provide texture and narrative, along with printmaking and photography. I work on paper, stretched canvas and relief.
A love of painting and drawing and the chance to live abroad originally led to an interest in depicting atmospheric landscapes. Mainly oils and watercolour and charcoal drawing. Exhibited in London at The Mall and Menier and galleries in Cyprus and Belgium. Ruddocks prize-winner and other awards Commissions undertaken.
I was born and brought up in Middlesex and after attending Chelsea and Newport schools of art completed an MA and PhD registration through DMU. I moved to Lincoln in 1985 become an Artescape Fellow and settled in the region, teaching for 29 years in both further and higher education.
Initially I made sculpture, but a transition into painting followed, this was mainly to do with a passion for story telling and communication of personal experience. I describe myself as an autobiographical, narrative painter. My anglo-Sudanese background does flavour what I do. I have a strong interest in the exotic and mythological – use of symbol, metaphor and simile run through the output.
I am a painter/mixed media artist. My work is landscape based. I don’t take photographs but rely on memory and imagination to create abstract images that reflect my connection with that place.

Lancashire Lass based in Louth, Lincolnshire. I love the challenge of painting landscapes in many mediums, but my first love is Acrylics. Achieved Art O level at 12 years old and took up painting again in 2000 which helped to cope with my terminally ill father. Try and paint everyday and love every minute.
Denise works in her Methodist chapel studio a few miles north of Lincoln. A lot of her acrylic landscapes are inspired by different areas of the County but also from travels further afield. Changing light and temperature provide inspiration.
I am working across Mixed Media.
My current practice centres on the human body. Recently, I have taken part in a charity project at St Marks Foundation to revitalise the hospital environment with my series of works “On the Bright Side” and “Summer Breeze”, depicting stylised, decorative images of nature.
I have always loved drawing. I studied for my art degree aged 49, and have exhibited widely since then. Formal issues of composition, colour and form are key to my work. Subjects are varied: narrative, life-drawing but more regularly still-life . Heroes include Matisse, Heron and Kandinsky, Rae and Ayers.

Lyn is a Ceramist and Painter and Fellow of the Society of Designer Craftsmen.
From age 15, I worked in commerce including timekeeping. Experienced an epiphany at 22 and went to study at Camden Arts Centre and Camberwell School of Art. My paintings are in many private collections including Jim Broadbent and Sheffield University. I occupy a studio at the old Bend in the River Gallery in Gainsborough by the riverside.
I am a full-time Artisan Felter and Teacher and live in South Lincolnshire. I am inspired by the countryside I live in and my wacky brain. I have been felting for over 10 years and regularly exhibit and sell my work locally. When creating my artwork I lay out hundreds of layers of wool, silk and other fibres to achieve depth. Then I use a single felting needle to see how much detail I can achieve. Each finished piece is unique and usually is inspired by places I have been, I love creating pieces you can get lost in.
‘Heart on the Line’—acrylic and collage on canvas, 1016 x 762 mm. I call this a ‘still life’ painting because, although uncharacteristic of the subject depicted, it is still life”.
Born in Sheffield in 1947, Edward felt drawn to Lincolnshire from an early age, coming to live in Lincoln almost 35 years ago.
An art historian, he has written books about the Duncan Grant Murals in Lincoln Cathedral, the histories of the Petwood Hotel
and the Kinema in the Woods in Woodhall Spa where he now lives.
He is a trained artist.
My work mixes colour memory and, oddly, the tactile quality of thick acrylic paint.
The finished offering might be the end of the journey – a mild gesture of gratitude to my brush or the start of another piece of work – after all, it’s only paint!
Originally, my use of watercolour was less of a concern with colour composition than with the furnishing of the drawn line. The paint is now part of the conception with an attempt to remove the feeling that the work starts with drawing and ends with paint as added decoration.
My inspiration comes from mainly the natural world, especially flowers and plants, but also from the shapes, textures and colours, inspired by rocks and crystals. My work encompasses a range of media and subjects from portraits to abstracts. I am largely self-taught and enjoy the occasional worshop.
Nature and particularly the beauty of flowers is my passion, with a fascination for the shape, texture and range of colours of exotic flowers, which I study and paint in various scales. Working in graphite pencil, Gouache and acrylic on mainly Arches paper or canvas underlines techniques that are a fusion of technical accuracy and impressionistic style.
Studied Graphic Design at Lincoln School of Art. Employed as designer in several agencies Became freelance working on Resources for Learning clients. Teaching qualification, teaching art in several colleges, Leeds City College. A colourist, paintings veer towards expressionism in figurative and abstract subjects. Also charcoal and impasto oil pastel.
My earliest memories are creating my own illustrations for my favourite stories, I gained a 2:1(Hons) degree in Illustration from the University of Wales in the early 1990’s. Then after a few years away from art, my love affair with it was rekindled and I haven’t put down my paintbrush since!

I have worked as a printmaker and artist for over 40 years both in education and from my own studio. A key influence is the world around me. I work in collagraph, lithography, monotype, etching and mixed media. I also make cards and simple folded artistʼs books and keepsakes.
Helena is inspired by the essential in Nature – of plant and animal life, dynamic in their varying shapes and by the abstract forms they inspire. Working mainly in wood, by improvising and experimenting, the sculpture evolves as a growing thing. Her work encompasses workshops, public and private commissions from small to large scale.

Gail Tointon Das
As a figurative artist predominately working in the medium of glass and metal my drawings are an alternative to traditional drawing techniques, a method I have developed over the last nineteen years through a natural progression. Experimentation is a very important factor in this progression enabling a continued development.
Ian Walter – President
Texture, colour and shapes all come together to create my abstracted paintings about mood and atmosphere. Going beyond reality I like my paintings to reflect the wild side of nature. I work in my studio with oils and cold wax on canvas and panel.
