Find out more about each one below:
Winner of the Tarmac LTD Landscape Prize at The Derbyshire Open 2009 and Best Visual Artist Award, Buxton Festival Fringe 2009, Sandra’s atmospheric work is inspired by the seasonal colours and weather of the ever-changing moorland landscape that surrounds her studio in the heart of the Peak District. A regular hill-walker, she draws upon her memories and love of the moors to create vivid paintings that not only reflect the intense hues and tones of wild open spaces, but also evoke a strong sense of time and place. The works are created by building many layers of pastel, charcoal or conte on specialist paper. The result is expressive pictures that capture the dramatic scenery and skies of Derbyshire and beyond. Workshops run and commissions welcome.

My approach is built upon basic drawing technique with charcoal which is then developed into oil paintings, using pretty much the same approach of drawing.
I run a small workshop that progresses a student from the very basic techniques of drawing incorporating the fundamental concepts of line, proportion, value, balance and light. These are then developed and used to create more detailed pieces as the student improves.
The aim is to create a workshop with students that advances their own style and interest, this is done by adding individual ideas in both traditional and modern ways, whilst also developing workshop practice and good basic understanding of the materials they use.
Paul will be demonstrating these techniques during Derbyshire Open Arts and you are welcome to have a go yourself.
