Chris Prout was born in Wales and educated at Swansea school of art studying technical illustration and graphics. After twenty years working in various creative industries he committed himself to painting full time.

Chris paints bold expressive landscapes, seascapes and architecture, rich in colour, texture and representational or semi abstract in nature. Chris enjoys being out of doors, walking the gentle hills of the Midlands or the soaring coastal footpaths of Wales, Norfolk and beyond. These experienced impressions energise his imagination and frequently appear in his work. In essence he wishes his paintings to convey a sense of beauty, intrigue and place.

Rachel Wood is a potter who loves to explore the rhythm and movement of clay thrown on a wheel, excited by the freshness and spontaneity that can be achieved through this ancient process. Using stoneware clay along with a variety of slips and glazes, her work is inspired by the landscape of Australia and her local Derbyshire.

‘I want each pot to convey its own spirit and character...to have a pulse and a heartbeat. I want the marks to reflect the journey of exploration and learning in each pot, just as a wrinkle or dimple depicts expression and character in a human face’.
