NEW WORKS FROM : Howard Jones Although a professional Artist for over 5 years, Howard has only recently entered into the domain of public exhibitions. His most recent works show a very conscious move away from his earlier influences in not just subject matter but perhaps more noticeably in style and technique. In this relatively short professional time Howard has already gained clients in the UK and abroad. His favoured medium is watercolor for which he has an enormous passion. Jacqueline Alkema Jacqueline's paintings are the product of an intellectual thought process leading to a visualisation of an inner state. The starting point for any piece of her work is the imagination which is triggered by reading, research or working from life. The female figure with at times awkward poses is a predominant feature in her work. Paintings develop through experimentation and intuition but with an awareness and control of the media used. She was Highly Commended Welsh Artist of the Year 2010 & 2011 Elizabeth Westcott Elizabeth is a contemporary artist based in Monmouthshire, South Wales. She studied Art at Cheltenham College, and now works from her studio, at home, under the Brecon Beacons' mountains. The beautiful fields and flowers in the landscape around her, provide rich subjects for Elizabeth's canvases, which she paints in an impressionist, impasto style. She uses a variety of mixed media, including acrylic paint, solvent-based inks, and gold leaf. Elizabeth is influenced by popular artists such as Kurt Jackson, Sally Stafford, and Marie Mills. Her regular trips to Devon also influence her works, and sometimes her paintings have a coastal theme. She exhibits regularly at galleries throughout England and Wales. Phillip Alder Phillip has studied fine art, history and economics and has made his living in west Wales for nearly 40 years through various work in the cultural sector such as teaching design, arts management, and exhibiting. He was, for example, the first manager at Oriel Myrddin Gallery, Carmarthen. After a period of paintings, mainly about beekeeping, fruit blossom, flowers and trees he returned in 1995 to working in an abstract tradition. This tradition is loosely modelled in the 'imagist' manner where the inner self and the outerworld, including stories, gardens, walks or contemplation, are fused into an artwork trying to parallel, in a purely visual way, an emotional response, understanding, or recollection of an event or place.
