About The Artist – Katwish is Katie Griffiths!

Bespoke portraits on commission. Artworks on canvas of children, pets and flamboyant individuals! Working with oil paints, textile sculpture and acrylic paint, I bring my experience of the stage and prop making to my portraits, adding flair and imagination. Check out my website and social media for latest updates. Each new commission is exciting and fun!

I am also working in collaboration with stencil artist @sicandotoo. Together, we create powerful works bursting with energy and colour. Have a look at the image, “Down in the Garden”.

Works on canvas can be made to any size. We make murals and can integrate them with mosaics. Please take a look at my gallery on the katwish website.

Background: I was co-founder of the puppet company, “Wishworks” touring shows and running workshops for children. I also worked in community art, constructing giant costumes and sculpture.

About The Artist

I specialise in creating bright, vibrant pastel paintings, using intense colour, lighting and atmospheric effects, which enable me to transform simple subjects into the magical. I focus on Italian, Mediterranean and English themes, from landscape to more close-up studies of windows, doorways, floral and still-life subjects. I also enjoy working in pen and wash

Born in 1952, I come from a long line of artists and can trace my ancestry back to Richard Wilson, the well-known 18th century English “romantic” painter. I studied at the City of London Polytechnic and the Wimbledon School of Art before embarking on a career as freelance artist and illustrator.

In addition to book-jacket illustration, I have produced work for television, films and museums, and have painted murals for commercial companies, and more recently, as a Lecturer in Art and Design.

My first love, however, has always been landscape painting. Capturing the effects of lighting and atmosphere, enables me to turn simple objects into the magical, always with the intention to convey the very essence of the subject, rather than just merely state the obvious.

Work has been exhibited in various galleries in London and the South East.

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.”
