Tessa started painting as a retirement hobby. Living by the sea is an inspiration, so most of my paintings are seascapes. When my grand-children arrived, I started painting 'children on the beach' as well. I paint mostly in oils, usually sea, boats, birds and anything else which might be fun to paint.
Shaun paints with Watercolour, Oil, Acrylic and Acrylic inks with a particular focus on Hurst Castle, life along the seashore and New Forest Landscapes. She is launching her new Hurst Castle & Solent 2019 Calendar and a wide range of new artwork, printed textiles and creative giftware. She is also exhibiting in Hurst Castle Cafe, Hurst Marine, Milford, the Milford Art Group Summer Art Exhibition, Hand Made New Forest Gallery, Lymington and is a member of the New Forest Marque.
Martine Mercy’s work features mostly the Jurassic Coast and vibrant paintings influenced by her recent travels to the West Indies and New York. She has illustrated four books on fossil remedies and others. She feels she owes her passion for painting to her Great Grandfather, Vincent Lorant Helbronn (1874-1933) who made a career in the art and cinema work with Charles Pathe.
Graham started wood turning in 2010 and now does it for a living. He like working with character wood from the New Forest area (Laburnam, Yew, Oak, etc) and wood with issues such as spalted and burrs.
