David Streeter & Friends
54 Osborne Villas, Hove BN3 2RB, UK
For 2020 we've complied our largest collection ever of affordable art and handmade gifts for you, featuring work from 12 artists and makers:-
Delphine Bache-Gabrielsen: Mixed media
Delphine is a mixed media artist based in France. More details to follow. Morag Caister: Painting Morag is a painter from Brighton and has studied Fine Art at Bath Spa University and Painting at The University of Brighton.
In the work are descriptions of a personal vision and commentary, which is mainly an acknowledgment of natural mirrors, patterns and frequencies found and recognised in just about everything, the concept is relatable in the sense that each person identifies with certain surroundings and can find parts of themselves looking back at them in corners here and there.
Andrea Dunne: Textiles
Andrea returns to Brighton with her beautiful new collection of knitted products; clothing, homeware and fine art too, all produces using the finest, locally and ethically sources wools and yarns.
Sue Elderfield: Mosaics
Sue has been making mosaics as a hobby for nearly 4 years now - inspired by Alicen Haire of Mindful Mosaics in Brighton and our group have become firm friends and still meet regularly. Sue is also a very keen gardener and loves colour so the idea of garden mosaics was sown during one winter when her garden needed cheering up!
Louise Erskine: Watercolor Louise works predominantly in watercolour, and her choice of subject usually gravitates towards Sussex landscapes and seascapes or from floral inspirations found in her garden!
Isabella Houry: Painting
Lizzie Kershaw: Jewellery
Lizzie is a Brighton based jewellery designer/maker who has been making jewellery for many years and have exhibited at craft fairs all over the country. From 2009 to December 2016 she traded at Covent Garden Apple Market.
All her work is handmade in silver and gold, from large scale chokers and neck-pieces through to bracelets, earrings, etc.
Lucy Palmer: Bespoke Framing
David’s aim is to minimize the environmental impact of the work he produces, so in keeping with that I’ve been sourcing picture frames from Charity and Junk shops, even the odd Manor house clearance, then carefully reworked them with sympathetic hand finished treatments and decoration to complement and enhance the impact of the work.
Rowena Park Design: Jewellery
Rowena works with clear acrylic which is shaped and bent using grinders, saw cuts and polishing grits to achieve the basic shapes, then transparent coloured lacquers combined with gold leaf create the vibrant effects, which are then “viewed” through the acrylic layer. The clear acrylic enhances the jewel like quality of the combination of lacquers and gold leaf by focusing the light into the acrylic and bouncing off from the now coloured gold layer.
Mary Penley: Ceramics
Ceramic artist and Spiritual Director producing wheel thrown and hand-built pieces. Known for her triangular ‘T’ pots, oyster platters, and thought provoking tableau sculptures.
David Streeter: Photography/Workshop
Host Twice shortlisted, Judges Choice and Highly Commended in the Landscape Photography of the Year awards. David's Patrons include Brighton based Jimmy Somerville (Bronski Beat). Dave also runs inspiring roving Photo Workshop on Brighton Seafront.
Janet Stocker: Painting
Born in the 90s and bred in Hong Kong Janet is a graduate of University of Brighton and a full time graphic/motion designer and an artist based in Brighton, UK. Her works show an atmospheric and ephemeral sense of a story, reviving a nostalgia sensation within my paintings by capturing small yet powerful moment of daily life.
FREE Workshop Taster Sessions: For budding creative photographers there will be a free Photo Workshop taster session every Sunday at 5pm.
