About The Artist

Ali Cockrean exhibits nationally and her work appears in collections in Europe and Canada. Born in 1962, Ali became an artist at the age of 15, when she began exhibiting and selling work. While she is largely self-taught, Ali’s art education includes formal tuition, most recently at Central St. Martins College of Art and Design and Slade School of Fine Art.

“My inspiration to paint always comes directly from within. It is the emotion and mood that is generated by a specific event; visual or auditory experience that forms the essence of the work, rather than the event or experience itself. Painting ‘feelings’ is always a challenge. I firmly believe that in order to consistently produce fresh, innovative and exciting work, artists must constantly challenge their own boundaries and push themselves beyond their comfort zones to discover their true abilities and potential.”

Ali Cockrean - Surrey Artists - Three Shades
At the moment, my preoccupation is with exploring how colour, line and form influence our reactions to familiar places or objects. In particular, I am exploring how far it is possible to abstract an image, yet still retain the essence of the original in the mind’s eye. What happens when the form is constant, but the colours change from those we traditionally expect? How does this affect our mood or emotive response?

These themes are common to all my recent work.”

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.

About The Artist

Born into an artistic and theatrical family in 1943, Liz has been painting and drawing all her life. She spent an unconventional childhood living in St. James’s Palace, where her father was a member of the Royal Household. After studying art to A level at school, she worked for four years at the Natural History Museum, where her duties included illustrating the publications and lectures of zoologists researching there. This was followed by several years of part time study at various colleges and with a number of eminent artists including Edward Wesson.

After qualifying as an Adult Education tutor in 1979, Liz followed a successful career teaching weekly classes in drawing, watercolours, and mixed media for Surrey, Berkshire and Hampshire County Councils from which she retired in 2003.

Liz now concentrates on a busy schedule, demonstrating to Art Societies throughout the country and teaching residential courses at Dedham Hall near Colchester, Essex, Earnley Concourse in Sussex, and other centres.

She has also contributed to several books including ‘The Artists’ Sketchbook’ and ‘Watercolour Plus’ and writes regular articles for ‘The Artist’ magazine. In addition, Liz is a well-known authority on artists’ materials and has demonstrated for most of the major manufacturers.

Art Groups / Exhibitions

During a career spanning over thirty years, Liz has taken part in numerous exhibitions, both solo and with other artists, at galleries and other venues throughout the country. As a result, her work is held in many collections both public and private, at home and all over the world.

In London, she exhibits regularly at Mall Galleries with the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour and The Society of Women Artists to which she gained elected membership in 1993. In addition, she is a full member of the Society of Floral Painters with whom she exhibits twice a year. An active and committed member of many local Art Societies, she has recently been elected President of the Arun Art Society.

Liz has a widespread reputation for still life and floral and landscape paintings (many of which have been regularly reproduced as greetings cards and prints by major companies). Her main inspirations are light, colour and the heathland landscape around her home in Lightwater, Surrey.
