ARTISTS IN RESIDENCE’ AT STALLS

Della Marie Barker

Wednesday 25th of May – 12pm – 2pm

Della is a full time artist specialising in contemporary art in mixed media.
”I constantly explore the relationship between different media; my work is often experimental using some methods and materials not usually associated with painting on canvas. I am inspired by colour, nature and texture and the combination of these 3 elements; having lived on the Alscot Estate for many years, much of my latest work ‘Flower Meadows’ has been based upon the beautiful surroundings of Alscot and the Warwickshire countryside. My ‘Flower Meadows’ are now widely collected and hang in private collections worldwide.”

We are very excited to be working with the Stratford upon Avon Art Society. We have four dates in May where a local Artist will be at Stalls either painting or sculpting in the showroom. There is an opportunity to talk to the artist and purchase any of their artwork on the day. The Artists’ will be in the showroom from 12:00pm – 2:00pm.

Tom Shepherd- Wednesday 11th of May

Tom is a full time artist painting mostly in oils and acrylics and working from his studio just outside Shipston-On-Stour.

“My paintings are a way for me to explore the wonder of the world around me.  Everything from exotic wildlife and the intrigue of places and people far from home, to simply the shadows cast across a sunlit street right outside my front door. What fascinates me most is the way light brings the subject to life.”

Pauline BamberWednesday 18th of May 

I was born at Bowness-on-Windermere, Cumbria and cannot recall a time when I didn’t paint or draw.   The Lake District Mountains and lakes feature regularly in my work.   Seven years as a Carpet Designer taught me discipline of pattern and a great deal about colour.    I like to work en plien air (outdoors on location) most of the time and my sketch book is always with me.   A sketch sometimes says more than the finished studio work.   Most of my work is Watercolour or Pen & Wash, although the subject can dictate a different medium.
Having previously lived in Cheshire for 22 years where I had several solo exhibitions, I exhibited at the Manchester Academy of Fine Art along side the work of L S Lowry.
Now living in Church Lench I have had solo exhibition in Worcester, Malvern, Pershore and Evesham.    I have been a member of Stratford Art Society for 25 years and was also a member of Worcester Art Society and North Cotswolds Art Society.

Paintings give pleasure to both the Artist and the viewer,

Suzanne loved drawing and painting as a child, but somehow it all got lost in the business of life and she did not start again until several years into retirement, now she can’t get enough of creating something.

Suzanne’s love of animals, colours and beauty never fails to inspire. She paints in watercolours, acrylics, oils and mixed media. Sketching, pencil & ink is her love.

Suzanne has been a member of Stratford Art Society for the past 7 years, and she have been so motivated by the activities and friendship of like minded people within the society. The annual exhibition held in Stratford upon Avon in August is a delight and she has been very fortunate to sell several of her works every year, that gives her a tremendous boost of confidence and the means to fund further materials.
