Jane Human is a painter and printmaker now living and working in rural South Norfolk.  

She has long been drawn to wide skies and horizontal flow; particularly the marshes and creeks of North Norfolk and the heath woodlands of the Brecks.

Jane's unique, vibrant mark-making comes from utilising printmaking techniques such as monotype, using her three tonne 1940's offset litho press to build fine layers of 

colour over many weeks. She often creates works in series and sees her working methods as contemplative. She hopes this spirit will infiltrate the final pieces and produce

paintings with space to be travelled and lingered within and which will engage on both an abstract and figurative level.

 

Ruth Shelly specialises in contemporary glass design working from her Welsh studio. Taking her cue from her love of travelling, Ruth Shelley's inspiration derives from her

observation of colour, balance and tone of nature.

Her gravity dropped vessels create an interplay of light, form and colour that is evocative of the natural world which surrounds us. The vessels take on their own personae and 

become artworks as glass sculptures. Ruth always observes how the colour balane in the glass layers reflects the energy and rhythm of nature, and how light illuminates it.

'My aim is to redirect attention back to the colours of nature in scenery and landscape'
