Wynford Andrews I enjoy the process of working directly from life, either with pen & wash, oils or mixed media. My work is executed on site and I rarely carry the process further. Belonging to a working group like the Eddisbury Artists is very stimulating and encouragement from others helps find your own method of enjoying creating images.
Anne Bonner My subject matter is predominantly flowers and landscapes especially the landscapes of North Wales. I work mostly in watercolour or pen & watercolour
producing paintings from my own sketches. www.annebonner.co.uk https://www.facebook.com/annesartpage?ref=hl
Joan Bradshaw I have always loved being creative, be it with fabric, pencil or a paintbrush. I have an interest in a variety of subjects including buildings, horses and landscape. I enjoy trying out new techniques. At the moment it is exploring acrylic painting based on my studies of the looms at Styal Mill (Wimsolw).
Roland Brandom In my landscape paintings I try to seek out what nature has to offer in the way of shape, pattern, line and form. I then try to design my picture in a more gestural inventive way. I have been running classes, workshops and demos in both watercolour and acrylics for a number of years. www.rolandbrandom.co.uk
Kate Brooks Drawing and painting animals has been my main interest in art for many years. More recently I have tried different media and work en plein air particularly with costal scenes. I have an interest in medical illustrations and took up Life Drawing. Being in a group is enlightening as interpretations and styles are all so different www.artbykatebrooks.com
Genevieve Buchanan I always loved both Arts and Sciences and studying Medicine gave me the opportunity to draw and paint anatomical illustrations. I particularly like painting in watercolours as it is challenging as well as being unpredictable which suits my style.
Claudia Cockcroft Claudia's inspiration comes from nature and her travels. She sketches and paints en plein air when the weather permits it. Commissions of portraits of houses and gardens are taken. http://claudiacockcroft.free.fr
Jane Copeman Jane works in a number of different media but focuses mainly on all aspects of print making. She uses a variety of print methods including etching, screen-print, collagraph and monotype and explores the ways of combining these with photography.
Susan Hancell I consider myself a novice painter having bought my first acrylic paints three years ago. Before that I drew in pencil, mainly trees, plants and butterflies. I realise how little I know but am eager to learn and look forward to learning with the Eddisbury Artists.
Owen Mageean I am a retired Art teacher and joined the Eddisbury Artists in 2012.I work mainly with oil paint in an impressionistic, realistic style. I have a preference
for landscape or coastal scenes. I also enjoy drawing and working in stained glass.
Mike Martin I have worked in Community Arts and as a teacher of Art and Design in High School. I draw and paint using a variety of mediums (including digital) and take my inspiration from the natural world. My style at the moment is figurative.
Dennis Rogers I have been drawing and painting on a regular basis for fifteen years.
I am largely self-taught except for receiving valuable advice and guidance from
artist friends. My preferred medium is watercolour on NOT paper but when working
with the group I range across the use of graphite, charcoal and pen as well.
John Spanton I started painting about 6 years ago following retirement. I use oil paints on either canvas or MDF boards. My main subjects are the mountains and hills of Snowdonia, the Lake District and the Peak District, and conversely the flat marshlands of Norfolk. My main painting heroes are Cotman, Cezanne and Edward Seago.
Ruth Wales My enthusiasm for art began when very young and continued through school and college. I particularly enjoy watercolour but drawing is my comfort zone. I constantly look to improve my work and often get inspiration from other group members. Subjects I enjoy are - from Life, nature, buildings and local landmarks
