Megan Dreaming by Sally Bamber

Sally Bamber

In 2005 I created etchings at The Princes Drawing School in Shoreditch, London, under the instruction of artist Oona Grimes. She was inspirational in her guidance and hugely encouraging of the individual in her teaching. At the time I was working on a body of work for my first solo exhibition of oil paintings of family and friends, so it was natural to focus on my husband and children.

Megan - I got up early and snuck into her bedroom before she woke to drawthis. The Chine-collé is chinese paper supplied by Oona Joe - two etchings of Joe - he was playing chess with Keith at the time, hencethe focus and concentration on how to beat his father. The Chine-collé etching isnewspaper which I've drawn on with a rubber Keith - two etchings of Keith - both using a soft ground and acquatint layers

Richard Foster

Richard grew up within a stones throw of Hadrian's Wall and Lanercost Priory and these two ancient monuments instilled in him a passion for the past. He also developed a love of the countryside around him and in particular for the trees that are so much a part of the north Cumbrian landscape.

Richard trained as an Art Historian at Manchester University and now lives by Morecambe Bay but works amongst the Lake District fells. Richard's work is inspired by the printmakers of the early twentieth century, including Ralph Middleton Todd, Claire Leighton and Charles Tunnicliffe and he is still fascinated by Cumbrian landscape.

Aldingham Beach II by Marie Wright

Marie Wright

My inspiration usually derives from a sense of place exploring hidden aspects of the landscape or from memories of my past A sense of place has also brought me to explore the landscape of my surroundings and the changing landscape of Morecambe Bay. The landscape prints are produced using monoprint techniques sometimes combined with washed up textiles and reeds as I walk the beach. I also produce limited edition screenprints based upon colourful houses of the area and mixed media prints inspired by the ephemera of dress patterns, recipes and baking still kept from my childhood.
