Tim Burns – Painter

Since Tim took early retirement from teaching in 2013 he have been working on marine landscape and related still-life subjects often bringing both elements together in one painting. His work reflects the world around him, whether it be the places he visits, the contents of his fruit bowl, his ceramics collection or bits and pieces from the beach or garden. Each painting reflects an aspect of his world and many of them have their own story to tell.

More recently Tim has returned to the human figure for inspiration.


Shirley Hampson – Botanical Artist

Shirley loves the medium of watercolour and growing plants to paint or finding subjects in the wild on dog walks.  She decided to take up the challenge of painting flowers and for guidance did the Society of Botanical Artists ‘ distance learning course, she also attends a weekly art group with a model and tutor and whether the subject is a plant or model finds it requires the same visual observation and feels stimulated by exhibiting and attending workshops.
