Susan Cox has painted and exhibited in London since studying Fine Art at Birmingham University. She loves to use figures in landscape to portray human emotions and classical themes.
There is always a narrative theme running through her work, Susan has travelled extensively throughout her career as a painter and these influences can be seen in the vibrant work. South America, Japan, Israel, Turkey, Australia and Europe, all these experiences have given Susan a great love of colour and glimpses of different lives in different cultures.
Suzanne has a multi-disciplinary practice that includes painting, collage and photography.
Her work primarily focuses upon screen-sourced imagery (and the often voyeuristic nature of its
spectatorship) with which she explores the possibilities of re-creating nostalgic and/or psychological narratives out of contemporary ‘found’ images.
Suzanne is a recent graduate of Central Saint Martins Fine Art Course and lives and works in London.
Bob's work moves back and forth between landscape and the female form, sometimes using landscape as a metaphor for the female form. Water frequently finds a way into the work, usually still and deep, an area of repose with the horizon acting as a neat formal device.
Bob studied painting and design at the RWA. He works in a variety of styles; abstract, landscape, figurative.
Having completed an MA in fine art (painting) at Wimbledon College of Art, University of the Arts London, Moira now works in one of the Cannizaro Park Studios near Wimbledon Common. Her current focus is the history of the countryside.
These paintings called "The Song of the Stones" explore the song of water tumbling over granite stone. Some of this famous stone was brought to England from Caen by William the Conqueror to build Canterbury Cathedral. In this work she aims to record a resonance of a known place and its history, rather than provide a literal account.
Marion is a south London based artist who has exhibited in a wide range of venues and has pictures in a number of private collections. She is part of ArtDog and shows in their exhibitions and is also part of South London Women Artists group.
Marion is interested in the layering and texture of surfaces; panels which appear raised or embossed on a surface, or by contrast, “trapdoors” to lower layers. The surface however remains smooth and flat. She often paints on unprimed canvas and the contrast between washed–out and vivid colour is a constant preoccupation. For the viewer this means that the paintings change as the light source changes and opens up or closes visual possibilities.
Tess Stone is a freelance illustrator and fine artist. She has been illustrating for publishers, design consultancies and manufactures for twenty years.

Her vibrant and richly textured examples of working techniques include watercolour, gouache, acylic, and pencil.
Tess graduated with a BA (Hons) from Camberwell School of art. She is also interested in Chinese medicine and went on to a achieve a BSC (Hons) in acupuncture and practices in Vauxhall.
Chrissy Thirlaway’s paintings concern themselves with the landscape of the body. Her drawings and oil paintings of the human form are worked with a deceptive simplicity and play with perception of scale and representation.
After studying for her degree in fine art at Maidstone College of Art she has worked as an artist within her community wherever she lives. Currently she is working and exhibiting in the UK, USA and Brazil.
