John Gammans

Featured Artist In 1999 John graduated with a BA Hons degree in Three Dimensional Design from KIAD (now the University College for the Creative Arts at Rochester), having previously received two diplomas in art & design from the South East Essex College of Art & Design. Whilst at KIAD John expressed himself more and more through his love of painting and drawing. Shortly after leaving University, and with the absence of a studio, John started to paint en plein air.

I graduated with a BA Hons in Applied and Media Arts...

Caroline Mornement

Featured Artist Caroline Mornement’s work is inspired by her travels mainly in Greece and India but also by tall ship voyages (as a volunteer crew) in the Indian Ocean & Caribbean. So many colourful and exciting images are left spinning around in the mind, she is constantly seeking a way to  pin them down.  Printing has been her main medium and lately she has been experimenting, using off cuts from old prints, to create slightly abstract collages, however the search continues to find the best way to record these amazing places.     Visit my Website Facebook...
