FAYE SUZANNAH;
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.
VICKY BUTT;
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.
HARRIET POPHAM
Harriet makes cheerful illustrative prints that celebrate places and moments in time. “I love pots, bowls, pattern, carving lino and contrasting pops of colour.”
LISA BENSON
Lisa Benson is a printmaker based on the North West Somerset coast.  Lisa’s work is born from a desire to recreate a moment that can be shared and then felt by another through the work. She is hugely drawn to the energies and magic that she experiences within nature. In a world that is changing frighteningly fast, she finds comfort in moments that link us to the timeless cycles within the landscape around us. Taking photos and sketching in the landscape are the starting points for most prints. Ideas are refined to form a drawing that is transferred to lino and, once carved, that initial block will inform the rest of the print. Intensity of colour is used to evoke sensations or emotions, whilst additional printing techniques are used to enhance the moment she seeks to capture.
GEMMA TRICKEY

Gemma is a Somerset based printmaker working mainly in lino and woodcut on paper and textiles. Her work features wild and wonderful characters and creatures from folklore, dreams and stories. She is inspired by the work of William Morris and Aubrey Beardsley and preoccupied with old scientific reference diagrams, the weird creatures of our natural word, buried treasure, gothic novels and the mythology of landscape and narrative. After graduating from a degree in Fine Art, she worked in the TV industry until fleeing from London to the countryside where she set up her print studio and aims to produce a range of wallpapers, have her work reproduced on a wine/gin/beer bottle and create an illustrated children’s book. Or die trying

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.
DIANA MILSTEIN
Di has been an artist all her life. She is best known for her drawings paintings and prints of fictional character ‘Miss Smith’. She used to teach Screenprinting and spent time experimenting with various open screen techniques. Nowadays she variates between playing music, performing as Miss Smith and painting portraits of her friends. Her work has a lighthearted and playful nature and reflects everyday life in a gentle and endearing way.
HARRY BROCKWAY;
Born: Newport, South Wales 1958
Kingston upon Thames Art School and The Royal Academy Schools (1981 – 84).
Trained as a stone mason and worked at Wells Cathedral (1987- 88)
Member of
The Society of Wood Engravers since 1987.
Self employed stone carver and wood engraver since 1988.
Resident of Glastonbury since 1989.
JOLENE FEELEY;
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.
