About the artists:
Cynth Weyman is an artist from West Wales with her unusual images created in unique textile reliefs using s technique called “Intaglio Strattos” Themes are inspired by natural forms from plants, rocks seascapes, erosion and human figures. Travel influences Cynth’s choice of images, materials, strong colours and textures.
Sharron Astbury-Petit works in France and has won many awards. “Time & Tide” is a large format series capturing the evolution and timelessness of water with the rhythm of natural shapes and patterns, all illustrated in mixed media on cloth.
Barbara Berkowitz works in Scotland and her applied photography on silk, copper and paper explores the elusiveness and changing short span of life as well as the activity of butterflies and dancers; all where time appears to have been frozen.
Paula Dean is an English artist based in Yorkshire and her paintings of landscapes reflect the calmness and tranquility in contrast with her drawings of musical events drawn on the spot. Paula’s multi-media artworks illustrate an interest in stone, wood, landscape and body imagery.
Since their original collaboration in 1997 all four artist have developed their art in unique ways in different regions and countries. The artists will celebrate their achievements together once more with visitors and art lovers – they’ll have much to talk about and share with everyone.
