Julia Everett

Julia Everett

About Julia Everett

Julia is an abstract seascape painter who lives near the Thames in Hammersmith and works from a studio on Goldhawk Road. Her use of vivid colours, combined with the influence of music, produce vibrant and ethereal paintings. Julia always paints to music and feels that this has a strong influence on the finished work. Julia graduated in Fine Art at Brighton University and has successfully exhibited in Britain, Europe and America and many of her paintings are in private collections around the world. Her latest series of abstract seascapes are inspired by the light, colour and reflections on the sea in Cornwall and Ireland. She has recently been listening to rock and folk music whilst painting and has chosen song lyrics from John Martyn, Van Morrison, Johnny Flynn, The Waterboys and John Lennon amongst others to title her recent paintings.

When describing her work Julia says: “Many of my paintings are inspired by light on water. I have always loved the sea and my childhood holidays were spent in a caravan in Wales, where we spent a lot of time on beautiful windswept beaches looking at the ocean and sheltering from the British Summer. I always knew I wanted to be an artist and I went to college in Brighton to do my BA in Fine Art, where my love of the sea grew. Now I try and spend as much free time as I can contemplating the coast, despite living in London! The Welsh coastline is still very special to me, as is Cornwall, which is now one of my favourite places in the whole world to visit and watch the light change on the sea.  Many of my paintings are inspired by Prussia Cove in the wild West of Cornwall, a place I return to year after year.  I always paint from memory not life and music is very important to my artistic process. I get inspired by what I’m listening to when I work and I feel that a snippet of a song lyric as a title gives the painting extra depth. Lyrics often jump out at me when I’m painting and seem to fit the artwork perfectly!

Julia’s paintings are available to purchase online from her website, she is happy to take commissions and visits to her studio are available by appointment.

Madeleine Marsh

Madeleine Marsh

About Madeleine Marsh

Madeleine is an artist who specialises in making jewellery and sculpture. Her creations are typically one-off pieces inspired by history, recycling and the river.  For many years she has been a mudlark, collecting finds from the Thames and transforming them into works of art and jewellery. A necklace might contain some 500 years of pottery, recording the everyday lives of Londoners across the centuries and each creation is unique. As well as using found objects (river finds, sea glass, small antiquities) she also makes jewellery celebrating remarkable women in history from the queens of Jazz, to female scientists to crime writers. Her sculptural themes range from mermaids and suffragettes to animals. Her artwork often involves a sense of humour and in every medium she expresses a love of life and the pleasure of story-telling.

Details of Madeleine’s work above

Madlark Dodo Sculpture – Made with objects gathered from the Thames foreshore.
Madlark Pendants – Antique mudlarked pottery, silver, semi-precious stones.

Caroline Winn

Caroline Winn

About Caroline Winn

Caroline Winn lives and works by the river in Chiswick. Her highly individual ceramic sculptures are the outcome of an experimental, intuitive and constantly evolving process. They explore themes of ‘traces’ of conversation and memory, leaving specific interpretation and response to the observer. Her work has been sold to collections throughout the UK and overseas and exhibited in galleries in London and Cornwall. She also teaches pottery from her studio in Chiswick Mall and runs residential ceramics courses at her house and studio in west Cornwall.

The form, colour and texture of Caroline’s sculptures are often inspired by the landscape and heritage of the Thames. Retracing history discovered in debris along the shoreline, Caroline frequently fires these remnants of human activity into the clay. She uses the intense heat work of the kiln to affect and distort the poses and gestures of her figures, challenging the viewer’s assumptions and inviting conversation. She uses traditional ceramic hand building and glazing techniques and incorporates a mix of porcelain, paper, and black and white stoneware clays, as well as different layers of slips and oxides. Each piece is fired up to four times, with a final firing at 1260°c. Her work is suitable for the home or garden, being fully frost-proof.

Caroline has also taught ceramics extensively during her career. She has run courses for Dulwich Picture Gallery, the National Trust, The Art Academy London, St Paul’s Girls’ School and a wide range of other institutions in the UK. In her earlier career, Caroline worked as a curator for South London Art Gallery, the Tate Gallery in London and private art galleries in the UK, Hong Kong and Australia.

Louise Kaye

Louise Kaye

About Louise Kaye

Having done a foundation course at Byam Shaw School of Art back in 1976, Louise went on to City and Guilds Art School, where she was side-tracked from painting and studied restoration of painted and gilded wood.

Louise worked as a restorer for seven years, followed by a career in marketing and then, starting in 1999, spent twenty years doing full time voluntary work.

Although she never stopped drawing and painting when on holiday, it is only in the last 12 years that Louise has really had time to devote to her first love, painting, taking delight in the texture of brushstrokes on canvas.

What Louise loves most is painting portraits from life, though she also paints still life and landscapes.  Her style is traditional but with an emphasis on being “painterly” rather than photographic. In her portraits Louise tries to capture the essence of the person, as well as an accurate likeness.

Jill Meager

Jill Meager

About Jill Meager

Raised in rural Scotland, Jill works primarily in response to wildlife – its resilience, its design and now increasingly its vulnerability. She exhibits regularly in London and around the UK and has been a finalist in both the National Open Art Competition and the V&A Inspired By series as well as being shortlisted for the RA Summer Exhibition. She has designed Christmas cards for Farms for City Children and InterAct Stroke Support, and one of her hares has featured in a Michael Morpurgo short story. Her work is held at the Jane Newbery Gallery, Dulwich and The Ashburn Gallery in Ashburton, Devon. She has recently developed a range of prints, cards and gifts based on the images she has created. Jill trained at Cambridge University and Putney School of Art and Design.

“I have long been fascinated by wild creatures and I feel a strong emotional connection to them. In my portraits, I try to capture their beauty, the profound meaning of their existence and the important and often under-estimated role they play in our lives. On my recent journeys it has been a great privilege to see hares, hedgehogs, puffins, kittiwakes and many other amazing creatures, but it has also been sad to acknowledge that many of them are struggling to cope in a man-made hostile environment.”

Rachel Busch

Rachel Busch

About Rachel Busch

As a resident of Chiswick for eight years, Rachel has been inspired to interpret the beautiful buildings, stations and scenes that surround her. ‘Some of these buildings are so well known and used, yet very often overlooked. I wanted to stop, appreciate them properly, get to know every curve, brick, nook and cranny and interpret their beauty onto paper.’

Each project starts by visiting, sketching and photographing a chosen building at different times of the day and night. Developing this back in the studio, Rachel works out what she wants to ‘say’ about the building. A sketch becomes a detailed drawing which is then transferred onto lino or cardboard, then the lengthy process of cutting, inking, wiping, scratching and masking the ‘block’ starts. Finally the creation of an edition, at the moment without a press, by hand burnishing each print with a wooden spoon or a Japanese barren, one unique print at a time – made with lots of care, dedication and patience.

Rachel works from her home studio, where visitors are always welcome by appointment.

Recent & current exhibitions:-

  • Royal Academy 250th Summer Exhibition 2018 – Rachel’s  ‘Dark in the Park’ print of Chiswick Park tube station was selected for the Exhibition, selling out and resulting in various commissions.

Mireille Farjon

Mireille Farjon

About Mireille Farjon

Mireille is a French national who, for three decades, has split her time between London and the South West of France. Educated at Cambridge University in the 1980s, where she read Modern Languages, she has been accompanied throughout her life by her artistic soul and creative spirit. After many years running an exclusive retreat in France for children to be immersed in the French culture away from the interference of technology and the modern world, Mireille decided to devote all her time to Decorative Arts.

Several years later, after writing a successful book on dried flower arranging, Mireille was accepted at the renowned St Martins Art School, to undertake the formal training that complemented and enhanced her natural gifts. Here she began to appreciate that the minutiae, such as the choice of a handle for a French commode, or the focus on the application of a certain colour in a painting, are what truly allows a piece of art to thrive and excite. Mireille’s view is that what makes every creation beautiful to the eye depends entirely on the sense of creative order, a harmony needed for the successful revival of a long forgotten piece of furniture.

Joanna Brendon

Joanna Brendon

About Joanna Brendon MA

“With a landscape subject matter that is often intensely familiar to her, Joanna Brendon’s bold, abstracting way of working creates paintings rich in dramatic feeling and entirely mysterious in character” Nicholas Usherwood, curator

“…a triumph of holistic connection with the natural world.” Howard Hull, Brantwood, home of John Ruskin 

Joanna Brendon made a full-time commitment to painting following a career in arts administration (she was the first director of  the concert hall, St John’s Smith Square). As well as concerts and festivals, she has curated many art exhibitions.  In 2005, she gained an MA at Brighton.

A body of work on the theme of perception is represented at the V&A, and has been shown at the Saatchi Gallery.  The entire series of prints is now on permanent display at Moorfields Eye Hospital.

“Following the conceptual project, I returned to painting, immersing myself more deeply into landscape, responding to the experience of being there, so that the works are about a place rather than of it. Sometimes I work en plain air, often in charcoal, enjoying the immediacy that this offers, but more often I will work from sketches in my studio. With this distance, I can work in layers, building up a history over days, weeks, sometime months. The landscape is still hinted at, but horizons are shifted and the picture plane is tilted so that there is a degree of ambiguity.  One might question whether one is looking at a vast landscape or a tiny rock pool. I always work in series, allowing one piece to inform another which in turn redirects me to the first. They can stand alone, but they can also work well together, echoing the chord clusters of colour in each other”. JB

Do you use magic in your pictures?” a 3yr old at SJE Arts, Oxford

Jon Perry

Jon Perry

About Jon Perry

Jon has been photographing Chiswick for more than 30 years, coming to photography from a background of painting and drawing. He particularly likes to capture mist and fog, for the serenity of the image it creates. With photography generally he likes the way the medium allows an artist to play with and blur the boundaries between a figurative image and an abstract one.

Jon loves to tackle almost any genre of photography, but underlying that, the fundamentals are: beauty, composition and playing with light.

Jasna Bell

Jasna Bell

About Jasna Bell

Jasna explores painting as a process of experience, sourcing memories and the unconscious, in which the paint marks reflect the passing time and movement of thoughts.

She says that the perpetual motion of our thoughts takes us towards a greater complexity of the world. Our experience becomes multi-layered and coloured with ever-changing perception of things. We often turn to art to find and understand our thoughts and emotions, a space to stand still in contrast to our internal chaotic existence.

Paint and brush become a vehicle to bridge the gulf between ourselves and unconscious, the canvas becoming a screen of reflection.
In the process of making, paint lends a body to this introspection and maze of sensation, the canvas being a gate of perception and realisation. In a single lifetime and even in a single day we inhibit different mind worlds and emotions. As we contemplate the rising and passing of various states of mind, we begin to liberate ourselves from reaction to and identification with them.

Arabella Harcourt-Cooze

Arabella Harcourt-Cooze

About Arabella Harcourt-Cooze

As a west London artist, Arabella is most interested in charting where she lives, seeing the topography and the continuance of the landscape shrouded by the city.

Most recently she has been concentrating on a series of paintings of the Thames, the seasons, the flowing tide and she wants to capture and record this. This is what she sees every day, her journey along the river.

“It is The City and yet not – the structure and symmetry of the riverside – architectural, regimented – planted by man: defying the wild and open beauty of the sky above, and always – the relentless tide. Painting comes before words. And I intend that my paintings should, in some part, be simply a gesture, sharing what I have seen.”

Arabella exhibits regularly – solo and group shows including:
Short listed for The National Open Art Competition  2012
Selected in 2010 for:
The Discerning Eye
The Royal Society of Marine Artists
The Cork Street Open Exhibition

About Natalia Bobrova

Natalia studied History of Art at the Moscow State Pedagogical University and Oil Painting at Ann Arbor Art School in the USA. In London, Natalia became a member of the Chiswick Artists at Home group in 2010 and exhibits every year through local exhibitions and London Art Fair.

She has two distinctive styles in her artwork. The first, with the bright, vivid, contrasting colours, provides expressive paintings of floral landscapes in Britain, France and Italy.

“These works are largely inspired by my travels. They are distinguished by bright palettes and energetic brush strokes. I apply thick layers of paint to give them a sense of texture.”

On the other hand, the use of subtle palettes in paintings of river views and Hammersmith bridge create a tranquil atmosphere and depth.

As the impressionists of the early 20th century, I took inspiration from London fog, which is one of my favorite subjects. In many of my paintings, mist pervades the landscape and the bridge almost disappears or stands out as an evasive ghost. But each of the paintings hides a human presence: a light from a boat, a figure passing the bridge, a gaslight.”

About Jenny Price

Jenny explores states of mind with abstract landscapes.

Much of Jenny’s inspiration comes from working and living near the Thames. She paints abstract landscapes, using acrylic and loose open weaves. This combination highlights aerial views of the river, floods, tributaries, fault lines and mudflats.

Each depiction of a subject is painted with different perspectives and combines the concepts of change, mood and feeling within the landscape.
Weaves are created on a loom with yarns chosen to represent the mood and subject of each painting. Jenny trained in textiles and print making at Camberwell School of Arts and Crafts and gained a Masters in Art Psychotherapy at Roehampton.
