About The Artist

“I have concentrated on the portrait, as for me, the face is an endlessly interesting subject to paint, and one to which we can all relate.

I work from photographs, as they provide an accurate foundation upon which the painting can develop, whilst still keeping the subtlety of a moment’s expression. Most of my portraits are Acrylic on Canvas or Board but I also use Pastel and Conte on Tinted Paper.

For a further selection of my work and details on prices and ordering, please visit my website.”

Happy Mum with Commission of Milo

‘Thanks for the portrait of our lovely boy Milo! It’s one thing to capture the facial elements of a person accurately, it’s another to portray something of the metaphysical/spirit of the subject. You do both… in spades. Thank you so much for investing so much care and intelligence into every stroke. We love it!’

Artist Biography

“Drawing and painting have been important to me since childhood. My best presents were cartridge pads, tins of crayons and paintboxes. The simple pleasure of making ‘pictures’ was so much more fun than maths homework or Evensong choir practice with all those psalms; but then, what isn’t?

At school I had a wonderful art teacher, Pat Adams, who encouraged me to explore different media and study painters past and present. So a new world opened up and with it, dreams of being an artist. I took a Foundation Course in Art and Design in Epsom and then started a Fine Art Degree in Bristol. I continued to paint during my spare time from work and gradually concentrated on portraiture.

The human face and form crosses all boundaries and is therefore the most familiar and accessible of subjects. I had painted family and friends from life over the years, but once I started working from photos, my confidence grew. To start with this made me uneasy, until I found that painters – Sickert, for example, had used photos as a starting point. From those early efforts I began to get commissions from family, friends and then by word of mouth. I look to the portraits by artists such as Degas, Sargent and Freud to help me with ideas about brushwork, composition and colour.”

About The Artist

Mark is a self-taught artist, and began painting in 1992 after attending classes by Alan Hume, a Staines artist whose draughtsman skills in watercolour and Pastel inspired Mark to start painting in watercolour.

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.

Mark has exhibited at the Chertsey Gallery and exhibited at the Bank Gallery, Chobham in July 2010.

About The Artist

I am a self-taught artist and have been working for myself from my home in Bookham near Leatherhead in Surrey since 1986, after a career as a cartographic draughtsman. All of my work is commissioned by businesses and private individuals. I work mainly in gouache watercolour, but I occasionally use graphite pencil and oils.
I rarely exhibit my work but have had one exhibition in Leatherhead Theatre, where 2 of my paintings were stolen! The first and only time it has happened at that venue in 25 years.

For the last 20 years, I have been concentrating on producing ‘caricature’ or humorous portrait watercolour paintings for businesses around the UK. My ‘caricatures’ are NOT really caricatures in that I do not exaggerate the facial features of the person and they are not quick sketches or drawings.

My clients have always preferred to see the subjects being instantly recognisable. Each one takes me several days to complete so I DO NOT attend functions, weddings etc. where a quick sketch artist is required. I am happy to undertake a painting or drawing on any subject, providing a nice clear photo reference is supplied. Occasionally, if the photo/s are not of sufficient quality, I take the photographs myself, if it’s feasible to do so.

Corporate and Portrait Caricatures

Businesses and private individuals around the country have been delighted with David’s paintings and drawings since 1986. His corporate caricatures have graced the walls of many homes and offices for over 20 years. Over that time, his work as a caricature artist has brought a wealth of experience, acquired to meet customers’ needs.

Each picture is normally supplied mounted and framed or unframed if preferred. His role as caricature artist has won him many corporate commissions. Satisfied corporate customers to date include: Agfa, BP, GlaxoSmithKline, Biwater, Sainsbury Savacentre, Thorn Lighting Ltd., Lafarge Roofing, British Army and many more.

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.

About The Artist

Born in 1966 to Sicilian parents, Teresa Scannella has lived in Woking all her life. Teresa works as a beauty therapist in Woking and her artistic skills are reflected in both her work and in her art.

As a mainly self-taught artist, Teresa grew up with a love of drawing but didn’t take it any further until she discovered her talent for oil painting, with the guidance of Stuart Wilson at his White Rose Art Group in Woking, which she joined in 2006.

Supporting The Alzheimer's Society

Teresa has made it her aim to raise money for the Alzheimer's Society through sales of her prints.

“My mother has had Alzheimer's for over 20 years and this is my way of raising much needed funds for the tremendous work the Society does.

I have had a tremendous response for my Poppy picture which was my first attempt at painting. I have also been inspired by the landscape and sea of Sicily and enjoy both painting and photographing the scenery.

In the future, I am planning to do more portraits and studies of the human form in pastels and charcoal."

Pyrford Poppies - 'Remember Poppy Day'

Teresa's painting of 'Pyrford Poppies' has been used as the artwork for a Single - 'Remember Poppy Day' with proceeds in support of the Alzheimer's Society.
