Current Exhibition

Beverley Holmes-Wright

Beverley Holmes-Wright

Designer-maker Berverley Holmes-Wright lives and works in Durham. She has been creating & stitching for 25 years. This series is inspired by natural forms and retro designs resulting in stylised flower landscapes. Beverley's work is primarily concerned with colour, composition and quality of workmanship. Using only the highest quality fabrics and threads, each piece is made using a variety of free machine embroidery, applique and delicate stitched patterns. She explains that the largest part of the work involves planning aesthetic colour schemes and composition so that each creation is harmonious and balanced

Sue Mason

Sue Mason

Sue is an artist based between the fells of South Cumbria and Morecambe Bay Estuary, surrounded by an abundance of wildlife and beautiful scenery. Her pictures include imagery of rural and remote country landscapes, often seen through the frame of an interior window and always including garden birds and flowers. She draws inspiration from her interest in gardening and floristry as well as holidays in the Lake District and Scotland. The use of acrylic paint on paper & canvas helps her to achieve bright & cheery spring and summer colours

Jenny McCabe

Jenny McCabe

Jenny Is a very creative & original printmaker from Lancaster. Wildlife and nature feature in much of her work. Jenny says of her technique, 'I combine drawings, collage and printmaking using messy gestural lines to capture the energy and movement of the subjects. I use layers of vintage paper to build up the tones and textures of my subject. I love the happy accidents that occur with the placement of collage- lines and colours of the paper referencing the original subject but also creating something new and different.' The prints we have in the gallery include Barn Owls, Robin, Jay, Swallows, Hares, Blue Tit.†

Janet Mary Robinson

Janet Mary Robinson

Janet Mary Robinson is a painter and natural history illustrator. Born in Kirkcaldy, Fife, in 1982, Janetís love of nature and art inspired her to study Scientific and Natural History Illustration at Blackpool & the Fylde School of Art. Since graduating with distinction in 2004 she has worked as a freelance artist and a natural history illustrator, based near Lancaster. This beautiful area of NW England forms the inspiration for many of her paintings. Her paintings are featured in private collections worldwide and she has exhibited in galleries and shows throughout the UK. 'My chief passion is nature; and much of my work is in response to wildlife or wild places.†I do not have a favourite medium as such, preferring to alter the medium in response to the subject. However, the majority of my paintings are in acrylic, which I love for its sheer adaptability.'

Janet will be in Artroom Gallery most Mondays and is happy to discuss doing commissioned specific paintings of particular animals or pets.
