Faye is a powerhouse of creativity. Her work is heavily influenced by her surroundings, nature, food and nutrition, swimming, bodies of water and other themes and subject that occupy her over active mind. Her screen prints use a mixture of photographic screens, mono-printing, hand cut paper stencils and plants and leaves that she collects, resulting in a delicious mix of overlapping textures, shapes and colours.
A printmaker who loves colour, pattern and simple design. She studied textile design at Somerset College of Arts & Technology, and enjoys both relief and intaglio printmaking focusing mainly on Lino and drypoint to create her pieces. Her inspiration is taken from the view of her garden from the studio, the beautiful countryside and coastline of the West Country with an occasional influence from her travels abroad. Her cushion covers, tea towels and other textiles are created using her own individually carved and designed Lino blocks. The use of Lino demands clean and simple designs that in turn create striking yet original images on both paper and textiles.
KIM VON COELS;
Originally from Germany but now a true Glastonbury local, Kim’s work is striking and colourful. Deviating from her usual medium of photography her screen prints feature similar influences. Bold shapes, bright colours, people, plants, and lots of experimentation. Despite print being ideal for multiple editions most of Kims work is unique, with each pull having deliberate variations.

Jolene is new to the world of professional printmaking, currently working mainly with cyanotype. She loves the unpredictability of this art form. She finds inspiration in the darker side of life, and the human condition, the occult, the mind, folklore, stories and magic. This will be the first time Jolene has exhibited in a gallery, and we are excited to share this milestone with her.
