While Paine Proffitt is perhaps best known for his sports-themed work, his new paintings depict fairytale-like scenes of queenly women in stately gowns, with birds and starry skies in the background. Proffitt's richly coloured paintings are created using layers of acrylic on canvas. They are nostalgic in feel and stylistically they reference elements of cubism and surrealism.
Glass artist Verity Pulford takes inspiration from the stunning countryside and wildlife around her in North Wales. She is fascinated by the ever changing light and the magical qualities this gives the plants and trees within the landscape. Using fusing, sandblasting, hand-painting and etching she tries to capture these qualities in her work.
