Claire Wiltsher was born in Wales and studied at both Lancashire and Northumbria Universities. In 2010 she received the ‘Rosemary and Co’ Society of Women Artists annual award and was selected for the 2010 Royal Society of Marine Artists exhibition at the Mall Galleries. Her oil and mixed media canvases combine layers of paint with fragments of collage. “I want to create evocative paintings of land and sea that show a sense of place; different weather conditions are key elements”.
Hester Berry was born in rural Devon and studied Fine Art in Wimbledon University. Her paintings are built up of thick impasto oil paint which capture the enegry and atmospher of her surroundings. She has always been interested in landscape and the environment and her current collection of painting take inspiration from her coastal home in Brighton where she now lives and works.
