Decembers Guest Artist Suzy Shackleton

To finish off what has been a stunning year of guest artists we have the very colourful and talented Suzy Shackleton in her own words Suzy describes below her inspirations and techniques for her unique felt pieces.

Im a felt artist and I make contemporary vibrant wall hangings using traditional felt making techniques. I combine old with modern by using ancient felting methods to create illustrative and quirky designs. 

I regard my felts as paintings, with the wool fibres representing my pallet.  Each piece is hand rolled and wet felted using inlays, mosaics and needle felting.  Layering the gossamer thin merino wool I gradually build up depth and tone.

What inspires me - is difficult to say, there is so much.Living and working from my studio in the Peak District (Rainow) the stunning views provide me with daily inspiration but I also love the exciting textures of the wool and creating bold designs.  However if I was to pick one thing, it would be colour

Felt making has become my passion.  I learnt about felt making at art college and never looked back, I was hookedI love the rich colours of the wool, its tactile qualities and the whole process of rolling and creating the felt. 

I think I was destined to be a felt artist - my nan was a milliner making felt hats for the wealthy and I was born in Stockport, a few miles from the hat museum, which used to be the main felting region in the country with more than 30 factories churning out felt hats to meet demand.

The best advice I have ever been given about art is dont care what anyone thinks!  Very difficult in practice but very good advice

Three artists who are inspirational to me are Anita Klein, Hundertwasser and the childrens illustrator Eric Carle.

Most inspirational place is where I live - the peak District.  Going for local walks with my dog (Inga) is the best way to fuel creativity

Definitely my practice has changed over time and its great to revisit old themes but with new and more advanced techniques.  I think it is essential to move forward and constantly challenge yourself.  Sometimes the techniques dont work or look good but thats just as useful to know.

Had lots of memorable responses but the main ones are when I do special commissions for  clients and they are visibly moved.  Its fantastic knowing a piece Ive created has such a wonderful effect - makes it absolutely worth all the hard work.

Novembers Artist in a Window Kate Beinder.

 Novembers Artist in the window is Kate Beinder read more about her artwork and inspirations below:

Who are you and what do you do?
I am Kate Beinder and I paint in acrylics on canvas and, more lately, in watercolours. My subjects vary from portraits and animals to landscapes. As my lifestyle has changed over the years, my time for painting has increased as has my passion for it.

How do you work?
I am lucky to have a conservatory that is really my studio. The light is great and it is my space! However, when the weather’s good, it is really too hot to work in watercolour so I move to our kitchen table.
Time for me is tight so I often neglect the planning stage although I am trying to be better about that. 

How has your practice changed over time?
I am a great believer in there always being new things to learn so my practice is evolving all the time. Although I haven’t had any formal training in art (not since a long forgotten A Level!), I love attending workshops and demonstrations to see how other artists work and learning from them. As well as dvds, books and the never ending source of advice and help that is YouTube, I attend Clay Cross Art Group. It is good to work in a supportive atmosphere with other artists.

What work do you most enjoying doing?
This is difficult for me to answer, as the disciplines of watercolour and acrylics are so different. I only started doing watercolours a couple of years ago after attending a workshop by the artist, Bil Lupton. I had always believed that I couldn’t paint in watercolours but I was encouraged by the loose style that he used and became interested in the way that watercolour paint behaves (or doesn’t behave itself!).  I am definitely still learning on that score.
However, I do like painting in acrylics as it gives me more control and the chance to go back and change things that haven’t worked. I am very interested in tone so the monochrome paintings that I do are especially enjoyable.

What themes do you pursue?
In my portraits, I like to know a back story so that I can try and capture more about the subject. I generally work from photographs and haven’t done any live sittings since school. I like to see the relationships between people in the painting I am doing.

Describe a real-life situation that inspired you?
The monochrome painting of the Afghan man with his daughter is based on a photo in a Sunday magazine about the devastating effects of malaria. I wanted to capture the father’s desperation as well as his love for his daughter. A donation from the sale of the painting or the prints goes directly to Oxfam to buy mosquito nets.

What jobs have you done other than being an artist?
Too many to list here

What inspires you?
All sorts of things, really.  Beautiful skies, the tranquillity of a place, people’s faces and their interactions with each other, a good story behind a photograph or painting. As I am sure any artist will tell you, you do start to look at things around you in a different way.

Is the artistic life lonely? What do you do to counteract it?
As my job is fairly hectic ( I am a teaching assistant at Highfields School), painting is a peaceful time for me, so loneliness doesn’t really come into it. However, Radio 6 music and Radio 4 are often my companions.

Favourite or most inspirational place ?
Although I live and work in Derbyshire, which I love, my favourite place has to be the Lake District. Childhood holidays there forged a strong link with The Lakes and now that my brother, Steve, lives in the Newlands Valley, I spend as much time there as my job allows! Painting outside in The Lake District can be a problem… as I sit here writing this, in Steve’s living room, the rain is absolutely lashing down outside… again. So I often work from photographs that Steve (an excellent photographer, by the way) has taken.

Thankyou kate!
The gallery is always open Tues- Sat 10 -5 and  some Sundays 11-4 but check our facebook page first to be sure.

Novembers Guest Artist Interview Caroline Appleyard.

 Novembers guest artist is Caroline Appleyard and we have a bumper sized interview with her below, her work is fun and full of little details that will leave you wanting more,

Who are you and what do you do?
 Caroline Appleyard, I'm a painter.

 Why do you do what you do?
 I paint because it makes me happy and I love to paint.

How do you work?
 I paint all day and into the night using acrylics on canvas.

What’s your background?
 I'm self-taught with no art training

 What has been a seminal experience?
Seeing Alfred Wallis paintings at the pier arts centre in Stromness, Orkney. I always go to see them whenever I go to Orkney.

 How has your practice changed over time?
I never use to put faces on the people, but I do now.

What art do you most identify with?
 Naive art

What work do you most enjoying  doing?
I just love to paint places, animals and people all one canvas.

What themes do you pursue?
Bright, colourful, happy, fun.

Describe a real-life situation that inspired you?.
I love to add underwater as I scuba dive, so often when I paint a place and add the underwater, I'll add creatures that I’ve seen. One of my favourite paintings that I did is ' the Two Fleets of Scapa Flow'. It has the dive boats on the surface and the German fleet on the seabed. Me and Chris are on my favourite wreck, the Karslruhe with a seal. I've dived there many times, but on one dive a seal stayed with us for most of the dive. So diving my favourite wreck, with my hubbie and a seal was brilliant and it is part of the painting.

What jobs have you done other than being an artist?
Driving a tractor, accounts clerk, swimming teacher, fork truck driver.

Why art?
 I always wanted to paint and study art, but wasn't allowed to study art and I had to get a
'proper job'. I'm happy when I paint, in my own little fluffy, colourful world. It's what I love
to do. When I wake up I can't wait to get to my easel with a big mug of coffee and just paint.

What memorable responses have you had to your work?
I've overheard people laughing at my pictures and looking at the people and creatures in the pictures, which are part of the places I paint. It's great when my paintings make people smile and make people happy. 

What inspires you?
Animals, people, places, underwater, just life in general.

What research to you do?
I visit a place and walk around, taking hundreds of photos, and sketching where I go. Then I get a picture in my head and I paint it my way :-)

Is the artistic life lonely? What do you do to counteract it?
Not at all, I'm very lucky. Chris, my hubbie is retired, and my studio is a conservatory at the back of our house. There's a window between my easel and Chris, so I can tap on the window for a cuppa anytime. I also have music on all day, punk, metal, thrash, so often bounce around and have a little dance at my easel. I also paint underwater in my dive gear, and have my music on my underwater MP3 player.

What do you dislike about the art world?
I dislike the snobbery in the artworld. We weren’t all lucky enough to go to art college, but there are many great self-taught artists in the world.  Many galleries close their doors to these artists because they didn't study at the right colleges. Luckily there are also lots of great galleries who will exhibit your work because they like it.

What do you dislike about your work?
If I don't like something, I change it, so I do like it.

What do you like about your work?
The bright colours, little creatures and animals, making them happy paintings.

What is your dream project?
I've got a big painting planned for in a couple of years’ time, it will be the largest painting I've ever done, but it's a secret until it's completed.

Name three artists you’d like to be compared to.
Alfred Wallis, LS Lowry, Dora Holzhandler

Favourite or most inspirational place ?

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve been given?
My teacher Mr Allen told me in junior school that I should keep trying, there was something about my paintings that he liked, and he always encouraged me.

Professionally, what’s your goal?

To be a well-respected artist.

Thankyou Caroline! 
The gallery is open Tuesday to Saturday 10 -5 and some Sundays ring first to check.

A Journey Into Oils

I'm sure other artists have experienced this but for me it was early 2014 when I realised  I wasn't  developing as an artist and I was painting what I knew, what came easy and what was well within my confort zone.  Then I had a light bulb moment...... and May 2014 saw me purchase a set of Cobra oils following the Max Hale demo at my gallery Studio 61 Gallery - Karina Goodman where inspiration kicked in.  

The transition from Watercolours to Oils wasn't an easy one. For a start I have a tube of White and I learnt that in oils you work from dark to light whereas watercolours you start with white, which is the paper and darks go on last. Well weird! Also I had a metal thing called a palette knife!!! A very new learning curve but I am enjoying the journey so much. Still early days but my first one sold before I had finished it and  all my commission customers since want it in oils, so to say I am encouraged is an understatement. 

Looking back the early ones were a bit basic but eh I was having fun practising.  I can't tell you how many tubes of white I have gone through and purple has been ordered a few times but I'm happy to say I mix my own now...get me!  

I struggle to to be disciplined and paint from a photo and prefer to use images in my head .... places I've walked with Bruno, both Peak District and coastal paths.

This is my only painting from a photograph - Beeley Moor,  (did it in the browns and greens  but wasn't me so went over it in my pinks and purples) fave dog walk place and kids and I had many happy hours playing in the brook when they were small.  The original sold too xx

Summer in Cornwall and walking the coastal path inspired quite a few paintings.. this one is called Summer Skies

As Autumn is setting in, my favourite season, my palette has changed and I'm getting braver

This past week has seen many misty mornings and my palette has changed again

It makes me wonder where Winter will take me?

I have lots more to show but dont want to bore so if you are in the Derbyshire area then you are welcome to pop in for coffee and have a peek at my new work...or they are online

Thank you for reading .. Karina x

Blog Update plus you can now follow the Blog by email ....

Autumn Arrivals

Hope you've  noticed that the Blog has had a bit of a refresh, albeit a subtle one, and it's hoped to still keep everyone updated about my Guest Artists, Artists in The Window and events. You can now follow the Blog by email, share with your friends and contact me so I hope you will find this useful.

In addition there's such a variety of work arriving almost daily, and,as an artist, I work and respond visually so I intend to keep you more in touch with photos of new arrivals, life at the gallery and what the cheeky monkey Bruno has been up to.

It's nearly a year since we had him and can't imagine what we did before. Our home was alot tidier, the garden wasn't dug up, our food bills weren't as big and I had a pair of slippers that were intact. Having said that I love him to bits and love it when he's with me at the gallery.  He can be found in his bed under my easel chilling to Pink Floyd, The Eagles and other old stuff on my playlist and has become quite a little star. Used to be called a Mongrel but apparrently he's a Cavapom!!

You are welcome to pop in and say hello Bruno x

October Artist In a Window Greenhalgh Glass

With autumn upon us we think we found the perfect artists for our window Joy and Darrell Greenhalgh's stunning bespoke glass pieces really set the mood of the season. Two pieces sold as we were trying to put them in the window so you better be quick if you want to view! 

Joy and Darrell Greenhalgh use glass making processes that are totally unique to them ~"trade secrets"~ developed  through more than 25 years of experience and experimentation. They create exclusive glass art by combining the unequalled magic of these unique making processes with truely inspirational designs . Layers of glass and precious metals~ 24ct Gold, Platinum and Silver ~ are  fired together in a kiln for three or more days at almost a thousand degrees centigrade. This forms rich, vibrant and reflective imagery that is full of life. Moment by moment, interplaying with every shift of  light, the artworks present something new and beautiful to look at .......... always .

The display is on throughout October and we have a couple of events you can come to this coming week so you can view this stunning display of craftsmanship as well as get involved in some art yourself, this Sunday 5th Oct we have two demos in oil by leading artist Max Hale £12 donation on the door per demo, and Tuesday Oct 7th we have the return of The Big Draw, 10 - 12pm come along for this free event and try your hand at drawing here at the gallery this is part of a global charity campaign to get drawing for fun back into our lives no experience needed.

Octobers Guest Artist Interview Heather Duncan

We are thrilled to have abstract painter Heather Duncan join us as our guest artist for October, her work is highly acclaimed and is a visual feast of shape colour and texture. To find out more about Heather read her interview below:

 Who are you and what do you do?

Hi! I’m Heather and I’m a painter. I live and work in the beautiful village of Kirk Ireton.  My studio overlooks the Ecclesbourne Valley and Alport Heights, and I never tire of watching the landscape change through the seasons or the skies change by the moment.

Why do you do what you do?

That’s a difficult question to answer in a straightforward way.  I paint because it’s how I make sense of the world around me.  Painting is my language, it is the way I communicate my feelings or passions freely.  It is quite simply a huge part of who I am.  When I am not creating/painting I am not fulfilled.  It is through painting/art/creativity that I can be the best mother, best friend and best partner that I can be.

How do you work?

I am not a painter who has a method or formula by which to paint.  I have no formula.  I approach each new piece with no preconceived ideas of what or where I am going to paint.  The start of each new piece begins with a spontaneous application of broad washes of colour picked almost randomly or subliminally from my palette.  Whilst all of my paintings are abstract in nature, they are all paintings of real experiences in real landscapes.  But it is my feelings and my experiences that influence what appears upon the canvas.  I do sketch and paint on my walks in the moors and on the costal paths, but I do not use these back in the studio.  They are merely a travelogue of sorts.  I paint from memory.  Once the colour washes are dry I then begin to feel a memory of a place or an experience begin to emerge from the wild marks and washes of colour on the picture plane… the memory becomes stronger in my mind and the painting starts to take shape from there.  For a number of years I tended to paint only large canvases, up to 7ft square… over the past year I have reduced the size of my canvases and have enjoyed painting many much smaller pieces…. I’d been wary of going too small believing that my ways of markmaking were too ‘big’ to transcribe onto smaller picture planes…. However, I have found that my smaller paintings have become more exciting, even more layered and richly textured.

What art do you most identify with?

           Blimey!  What a difficult question!  An artist doesn’t just have one narrow creative outlet, but            applies his or her creativity to everything in life.  (At least the artists I know personally, and I              do this….) I feel like I am constantly creating, whether that is in the garden, in the home, in                my different professional roles.  So do I identify most with sculpture, with landart, with                        drawing or architecture?  Or is it painting or stonecarving, gardening or textile design?                        Whilst I choose to paint and exhibit my paintings and call myself a painter I identify with a                  broad range of art practices.  I love poetry, music, sculpture, painting, I use inspirations from               these and other arts in my own practice as an artist.  In painting, whilst my own work is quite              abstract, and many of the artists that I love are Abstract painters, I love the work of Giotto and           the Byzantine artists. I am moved by the work of El Greco, Chagall and Rembrandt… the list is            endless.  So whilst I have chosen to answer your question of identifying with art, my answer                might not be what you were wanting!  Sorry!

What’s your favourite art work?
           (It depends on the day that you ask me!) Actually I would find it difficult to say just one piece,            but I could give you my desert island list of 9.  But can I choose two of those 9 for you?  The              first would be Piet Mondrians’ Evolution Triptych.  I first saw this piece in Amsterdam when I            was 19.  It blew me away – I had only experienced his neo-plastic jazz inspired grid like                      paintings before…. And then here was this most ethereal, spiritual, beautiful piece.  It held my            gaze and filled my soul.  The second would be Giacometti’s painting ‘Caroline’ – I love the                way in which many sculptors draw and paint… their ability to create the illusion of 3D in a 2D            plane… Caroline is a large portrait done in a muted palette of white, grey and brown, again a              beautiful painting that I never tire of looking at. 

What jobs have you done other than being an artist?

            I trained as a Landscape Architect, at the school of the built environment in Leeds in the 80’s               and 90’s.
            I am also a fully qualified teacher of art and design.  My last fulltime post was in Birmingham             as a Head of Art and Design in a 6th form college.
            I also trained as a massage therapist and aromatherapist whilst my husband and I lived in the               USA before my boys were born.

What memorable responses have you had to your work?

When someone truly ‘gets’ what you feel about the landscapes that inspire you or the experiences within those landscapes… when they are moved to write to you and tell you that your painting has touched them in some way… that is the best feeling in the world.  Recently, I know that someone was moved to tears by a piece of my work… that’s so touching. At the last exhibition I had – in Dorset in June – I met a couple who had bought two of my paintings…. They told me how much they too loved the Moors, and that they could feel the moors and their own experiences in them when they looked at my paintings. Amazing.

What inspires you?

Besides the Moors and Oregon, and all those painters and artists already mentioned? 
Well, corny as it may sound, the love of my family and my feelings for them.  They are in everything I do.
The poetry of Jo Bell and Norman McCaig.  The writing of Nan Shepherd, Robert MacFarlane, Roger Deakin and Kathleen Jamie.

Name three artists you’d like to be compared to.

            I’ll set my aspirations high with this one!  Cy Twombly, Richard Diebenkorn and Franz          Kline.

Favourite or most inspirational place ?

           Can’t just give you one!  Has to be two.  Firstly, the moors of northern England where I grew              up. And secondly the Oregon coastline.

Professionally, what’s your goal?
That means I have to have a plan!  I am more of an ‘in the moment’ kind of girl.  My life is one of ordered chaos.  So my plan or goal?  To survive the chaos of the next 4 months!  Beyond that, to keep painting and showing my work nationally and perhaps find a gallery to house my work in the US.

Mandy-Jayne Ahlfors Septembers Guest Artist

Septembers guest artist is Mandy- Jayne Ahlfors her colourful work is lighting up the gallery,read more about Mandy below.

Who are you and what do you do?
I’m Mandy-Jayne Ahlfors a self taught artist currently living in Heage Derbyshire. My current subjects are Landscapes and Portraits. I also paint to commission. 

What’s your back ground?
It all began as a young child my family used to say to me you were born to do art be creative I was also gymnast as well another creative hobby of mine really I had two art forms as a child. Every birthday and Christmas was sheer delight my presents where all creative , drawing pads, creative kits, paint by numbers, scratch foil, picture kits I could make with tiny glass stones one I remember was a young farmer and his donkey I gave to my grandparents as a gift. At different stages in my life my family have my art in their home most of them are still on their walls and luckily not the in the loft.  Both my brothers once commissioned me for the same painting, I’m very lucky that my family paid me to paint they were encouraging me so grateful they did a good start for my art business. In ‘96 after being made redundant for the first time I attended art painting workshops in Belper it was suggested by the tutor I should go to University but I couldn’t really afford it so I did a self study credited art theory course at the local Belper Adult Education Centre near the Fleet I chose The Impressionists Era it was so interesting to learn more about Turner, Monet, Manet, Degas, Renoir, Van Gogh further studying took me back to the Renaissance another  favouritwe era in art history.  Family & friends continued their quest for me to exhibit my work. Finally it felt like the time was right I’d heard of Studio 61 Gallery near Matlock in Derbyshire so contacted Karina for the first time in 2007 Karina exhibited my work.  My art was then accepted at View From The Top Gallery above Waterstones in Nottingham very exciting times sadly now closed due to the recession.  I had art commissions every month. Eventually art became my self employed job.

What has been a seminal experience?
One of the first experiences was to have my work accepted by art galleries. There have been so many seminal experiences I’ve been very lucky, every year since 2009 my work has been featured online or in publications for example my painting Titled “Ethereal” published in Artists and Illustrators Magazine. Featured online such as my “Great British Mini” Painting was chosen for their online Pop Art Collection  I’ve been very lucky to have had my work featured in local news, magazines and media, a company called “The New Fat” in Nottingham featured my art on their online calendar for three years running and I’ve been asked again in 2015.  In 2012 my art was selected to be exhibited at East Midlands Airport in the DepARTures exhibition that also was an the most amazing experience. . When my people compliment and buy my art is always a seminal experience I’m always grateful!

How has your practice changed over time?
From time to time my art does evolve .  I enjoy different subjects I find the World is an inspiration each time I study a subject my imagination runs wild.  I seem have certain times in my life where I’m ready to start something fresh reinvent my work.  I never stop learning it’s a never ending journey.

Why art?
It was always meant to be art. 
What memorable responses  have you had to your art? 
I receive amazing compliments on my work it could be work they’ve seen a gallery or even social media. I appreciate it very much I am very thankful! 

What inspires you?
I’m a deep thinker I’ve always been the same I never forgot that thought even from a young age.  I’m a people watcher, I love the light and changing seasons I’m constantly taking in my surroundings always thinking.  
What research do you do?
I research all my subjects.  Currently I’ve been researching our Heritage and wanted to highlight it further both my parents are history lovers maybe this is another reason why I seem to delve further into my subject.

Whats the best piece of advice have you been given?

Learn from failure.  There have been times where you get to that point and you think it’s not working I step back and take time out refresh my thoughts.   I look for inspirational advice my friends, family the internet such as blogs, groups on social media play a huge part there is so much advice out there if you look for it.  It’s great for business and helps me to stabilise especially when the times have been tough. I would say I am able to give advice too! I know even at times I felt frustrated I’ve felt like giving the art up but I always say to myself “you know you won’t” I would feel lost without my art!

Thank you Mandy!

The gallery is open Tues- sat 10 -5, it is a working gallery with a lovely cosy atmsphere tea and coffee and a place to sit and admire the work of our artists and designers.
