Celia Smith draws with wire as others draw with pencil. For her, creating sculptures out of wire is like drawing in three dimensions. Birds are her main inspiration; capturing their movement and character is her primary concern. She finds that wire has a spontaneity that can give her sculptures a feeling of life and energy.
Celia's sculptures are eco friendly-the materials that she uses are mainly sourced from scrap yards, each visit brings new colours and textures which helps to inspire the next creation.
Robert Greenhalf works in woodcut, oils and watercolour. His subjects are mainly birds and other wildlife. He places great emphasis upon observing and sketching in the field and his watercolours are frequently made directly from life. The oils and woodcuts are created in the studio, using field sketches and watercolours as reference.
