1 Chloe Romanoscloelea@aol.com
Chloe Romanos is a French jewellery designer and maker, based in Oxfordshire.

She uses traditional silversmithing techniques to create contemporary statement rings, necklaces and earrings, sustainably produced using recycled precious metals (sterling silver and 9ct gold) and gemstones (her favourites: labradorite, opal, moonstone, amethyst, garnet…).

Her initial training in archaeology and her fascination for Art and Crafts has inspired her to learn about transforming metals and combining different materials to create little poetic keepsakes, using traditional silversmithing techniques.

“I like to create statement jewellery that stands out on the body. I imagine and design pieces that are small pieces of wearable art.

Each creation has a story behind it, from the winged creations inspired by Art Nouveau to the textured effects that are a reminiscence of the worn aspect of archaeological treasures dug up from the ground. I also like to let my imagination be guided by memories of inspiring places I have visited, quotes from poems I have read, or by the material itself.”

She studied jewellery making and silversmithing at the Jewellery School in Birmingham. She also hold a Master in Art History and Archaeology from Sorbonne University in Paris and a PhD in Archaeology from the University of Birmingham.

Digital Mixed Mediawww.danielcraft.art
My Name is Daniel Craft and I am a BA Honours Fine Art graduate from the University of Northampton.

Currently based in my home county of Oxfordshire, my artistic practice focuses on the utilization of digital editing and sculpting software to create colourful and vibrant images. These images are responses to how I and many other feel in the moment in relation to current politics and queer identity.

I am known for having input (while also exhibiting as well) in the curation of different exhibitions. These include (with support from art galleries Two Queens and NN Contemporary), “Constellate” (2022) and working with the owners of the Grade I Listed House Lamport Hall in a show entitled “Forecast” (2022)

Hi, I am Amrita Nanda, a Surreal Artist !
My artistic journey began since school, achieved College colours for Art in Mayo College Girls’ School, Ajmer, India; Two gold medals and a Bachelor’s degree in Visual Arts from Faculty of Fine Arts, M.S. University, Baroda, India. I carried my creative stint further in the retail sector as a Visual merchandiser, after which I followed my surreal energy to being an artist.
My artworks are a colourful surreal escape into my world. Working with different mediums, materials, and concepts, I express myself through my paintings. They are bold, bright & colourful with a sense of movement in them. My inspiration comes from everything around me, both in UK and India.
Dreams, feelings, emotions, life experiences, places I have travelled and not travelled are reflected in my artworks as surreal in real. My works are concept driven by the invisible, that cannot be seen but can only be felt in our minds, by our bodies and around us. Painting to me is a constant discovery of oneself, an evolution of the mind and soul and my aim is to make the invisible visible to my
audience, for them to feel that same energy & happiness as I do. An invisible experience of a language of every artwork that speaks to the viewer, like they speak to me when I create them.
I am honoured to have showcased and achieved recognition for many of my artworks across UK.

After a lifetime ( and a half!) in commerce, I'm following the career I should have had - in art. I discovered Chinese Brush Painting ten years ago, and immediately felt at home with the beauty, spirituality, philosophy and the culture of this ancient art. So much of my work is ink and chinese watercolour on plant based papers like Mulberry or on silk. However, I also love the lusciousness of oil and the brightness of acrylic. Whatever the medium, I aim to follow the traditions of Chinese art to capture the essence, the lifeforce, the "chi" of the subject matter and transmit this to the viewer. 65909b916a645-ARTSEA7.jpg

I also make what I like to call 3-D Cyberpunk art, where I make collages using salvaged electronic parts in box picture frames that I customise and modify myself. These have ranged from simple pieces with mobile phone circuits to more elaborate designs with certain themes.63f51976be594-P1040009.JPG

Pastels Pencil Drawing
Born in Lancashire, I have lived in Oxfordshire for approximately 30 years. I only came to the discovery that I could draw in 2018 on the death of my father. I picked up a pencil and drew a lily and couldn't quite believe I'd done it. I then went on to draw a few pencil portraits for friends and relatives.
Drawing then stopped until I was furloughed in 2020 when I decided to try coloured pencils. From that point on I have been on a rollercoaster of a journey which resulted in my first exhibiting in Oxfordshire Artweeks, followed by Artists in the Countryside in 2022. Initially my work was animal portraits but as my confidence has grown I have explored other subjects and, more recently, a different medium. I draw what inspires me and as a country girl I am very much drawn to wildlife, the countryside and the coast. I do however love challenging myself and in this last year have drawn human portraits and the human form. My new medium is pastel pencil which I am loving. Someone said to me 'it's not like you draw doors', I had to confess yes I have, I've drawn a door!
This has turned into a real passion for me, it’s my yoga with pencils, my happy place, my escape! I particularly love taking the opportunity to showcase my work and I am very happy to talk to people about it. It has been quite a journey and being completely self-taught I hope I can inspire others jus

My journey into art started in 1977 on Company business to Italy. Staying over the weekend I ventured into Pisa. I parked up facing the external wall to Miracle Square. An excellent position for a first glimpse of the 'Leaning tower of Pisa'. Armed with sketch pad and paints a quick line and wash was forthcoming. The finished water colour hung on my wall for many years. In 2005 the Museum of Modern Art Oxford invited artists to exhibit paintings under the heading 'Oxford Visions of the Future'. my 6 sketches - Pedestrian Precinct (Queen Street) - Westgate (shopping) - Transport (featuring a monorail) - Canal Marina (Worcester Street car park) - Environment (City Centre Traffic Control) - Concert Hall (with scalloped roof) were accepted and hung as a set of 6.
Painting Plein-air on the streets of London was a great experience in 2017/18. My finished paintings were hung in Chelsea Town Hall.
During the Oxfordshire Art Weeks I will be showcasing my art work of Cityscapes.

Watercolour Mixed Media
I describe my style of artwork as an explosion of colours with a contemporary style using both watercolour and Brusho. I get my inspiration from walks in the Oxfordshire countryside, through woodland and farmland, via public footpaths, also capturing beach scenes while visiting coastal areas of the UK. I’m a member of the National trust and the Berks, Bucks & Oxfordshire wildlife trust which adds to the abundance of wildlife and farm animals I can use in my paintings.
As from 1st January 2023 I have now started to incorporate a small Hedgehog stamp next to my signature; this will be on all my future artwork to make awareness of the decline of these beautiful animals.

I have always loved creating artworks. It is an enjoyable (and sometimes frustrating) challenge to try and capture the beauty and interest of a subject in a form that people can then enjoy in their own home. I am inspired by the beauty of flowers, gardens and the countryside. Being originally from the south coast I also love coastal scenes and these feature in some of my paintings. I mainly work in oils but also like using pastels and other media.
I have taken part in numerous exhibitions throughout Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire.

Contemporary artist Cathy Read creates urban landscape paintings that reflect city life in all it's glory.
As an Occupational Therapist, Cathy used art to develop fine motor skills in children. Realising the artist dream remained during a career break, it was now or never or regret it. Since then, Cathy has tenaciously built her career, learning on the job.
The Style developed from early, predominantly circle based abstracts into urban landscapes, fuelled by a lifelong interest in buildings – rooted in a childhood dominated by the giant cotton mills of Middleton, Manchester. Cathy exhibits around the UK, Europe, and is collected as far afield as Canada, Africa, and New Zealand.
She lives in a chapel near Buckingham, which she converted with her husband. It is close enough to London to get an Urban Architecture fix when needed. Cathy splatters paint and sings loudly in her Buckinghamshire Studio, when not steering a canal boat along the British waterways and wielding a windlass.

Being thoroughly miserable and cranky in the world of work, I began to channel this frustration into painting, and started creating imagined landscapes based on my memories of growing up in an impoverished northern mill town.

I started exhibiting in local art galleries, around Oxfordshire and the Home Counties and gained representation with various online galleries. All of this original series of painting were sold and are in private collections. In 2008 I was invited to become a member of the historic Oxford Art Society.

My work has since developed, from expressionistic and surreal landscapes, to figurative paintings of everyday domestic drudgery, and memories of childhood bogiemen.

Watercolour Oils
As a relative new comer to painting, my initial interest was in using watercolour, however I also enjoy creating images through oils on canvas. My work in both watercolour and oil is based on images that I have captured from visits to numerous locations, some local to where I live and many from much further afield. My own photography has played a large part in sourcing topics for my paintings, however I also enjoy the concept of creating outdoor sketches, which have materialised from visits to coastal areas, national parks and the more rural areas of the Scottish Highlands. My involvement with the Bicester Arts Network has enabled me to liaise with many other painters through similar local art groups and enjoyed the opportunities of working with more experienced artists. 63a5d466d4995-IMG_4623.jpg

Isn’t it wonderfully comforting to have a special mug that you like to use each day? Or a beautiful pot that you just love looking at and touching? Pottery is so personal, we use it every day, so why not enjoy it? My approach to making pots is with a little bit of humour, a touch of quirkiness yet also functionality. I mostly throw on a pottery wheel but at times I’ll have a phase of handbuilding. I have a studio at home and a small kiln so I’m limited to small batch items, often one offs. Individually handcrafted items are special, made with love and a sense of creativity, but also hours of painstaking physical, technical and scientific work. It comes with a smattering of frustration and disappointment but often elation and joy when a plan comes together. This will be my second Artweeks and my second year of being face to face with potential customers. This past year has taught me a great deal about making to sell but I also keep to designs which please me and I hope also please those who come to see me. 63a5d335a6e92-2846EB9A-C250-499D-B090-69F9327EABF3.jpeg

Since starting exhibiting and selling her art in 2018, Céline has been using a variety of mediums including acrylic/collage, watercolour but since discovering digital technology in 2020, she turned to a different style altogether.
She is self-taught and loves experimenting; her approach to art is simple: “give it a try and see where it takes you”. This transpires in her latest pieces which could not be any further from where she started: art for children versus landscapes/Still Life and sometimes dramatic sceneries.
She works mainly from photographs she takes when creating landscapes and seascapes and enjoys working on details and shades. Céline still creates art for children which comes from her imagination for which she uses vibrant colours and dreamy sceneries.
Céline is French and has been living in Oxfordshire for 30 years.

Themes include sun streaming through woodlands and trees, twinkling water and reflections, carpets of flowers or fields with interesting skies. More recently, adventures from a trip to Japan have sparked a collection of works. Most prints are worked in reduction whereby layers of colour are cut and printed from the same block, destroying it in the process and limiting the edition.63a5a2ad8c7f7-Sea Pinks - Alexandra Buckle 1mb.jpg
