Oonagh's winged sculptures are an intriguing mixture of curiosity and quirkiness. Created using wire, their form is given added definition by the application of paper. The inspiration for these pieces has come from the lightness and translucent qualities of the paper, together with the observation of the posture and expression of the subject matter, giving each piece character.
Emma uses an eclectic recipe of 20thC design classics, prestigious traditional fabrics and playful nostalgia to produce a range of unique hand crafted teacups and saucers. The treasured and discarded pieces of domestic design Emma surrounds herself with in her studio and her home provide the inspiration for her work.
Kathryn is a visual artist and uses a range of media, including paint, drawings, collages. Rooted in observation and figurative representation, her work suggests landscapes and scenes which have an ambiguous narrative and don't quite make sense. Inspired by images found in old books, postcards, packaging, illustration , she 'quotes' from these second-hand sources to create new stories and hopefully trigger familiar associations with the viewer. Her work combines both painterly and graphic, precise and gestural qualities. Kathryn also paints and draws portraits in a variety of media. Her portraits of children capture them and their world at a specific time, and can include children's own drawings and mark-making in a portrait which references their favourite toys, familiar clothes and storybooks in a semi-abstract design. Kathryn can do portrait commissions on request.
