Using a variety of mediums including acrylics, inks, pencils and watercolour, Claire Allen-Brunn explores the Shropshire countryside and wildlife inspired by travel in a selection of prints. Claire finds the Shropshire countryside and rural way of life presents her with a plethora of potential subject matter and she reflects its infinite variety in her work.
Since retiring some 12 years ago from running his own marketing/advertising agency, Andy Smith has had the opportunity to use his commercially-learned photographic skills photographing for pleasure rather than for business. The result is a collection of some 10,000 images of an eclectic mix of subjects: wildlife, landscapes, and flowers. The common theme regardless of genre, is Andy’s ability to recognise the unique, the splendour of colour, the quirky and even the challenging.
