Artist Bio's

Anna pinkster

In 1994 Anna Pinkster was awarded a first class BA degree in Fine Art by the West Surrey College of Art and Design. Since then she has exhibited largely in London, Bath and Somerset. In 2018 she was awarded the Prince of Wales portrait drawing prize at the Royal Society of Portrait Painters Annual Exhibition and was elected a member of the Bath Society of Artists.
So far this year (2020) she has been selected for the SWA (Society of Women Artists) annual exhibition, the NEAC annual exhibition, and the Pastel Society exhibition where she received the Anthony J Lester Art Critic Award.

“My work reflects my obsession with drawing and painting the human figure and my fascination with observing and describing people in their environment.  I am most inspired by working from life where subjects are captured in a moment of expressive movement and shape and form are captured in a fluid simplicity of line.
Frances Watts

Frances Watts is a British artist inspired by the shifting colours and shapes of the landscape. Often working en plein air, Frances paints quickly, invariably using a palette knife or a large brush to respond to her surroundings with vibrancy and texture. Frances holds a BA in Fine Art from Byam Shaw School of art and has spent several years working as an illustrator.
Henrietta Charteris

Henrietta Charteris is a Scottish-born, contemporary figurative painter. She was born in 1979 in Aberdeen, grew up in the Highlands of Scotland, and has lived in California, Switzerland, France, Singapore, and The West of England. She has since returned to Scotland, where she paints out of her log cabin.
 Her imaginative paintings are born from memories of the people and places from her past and present, such as Californian camping trips as a child.
daisy carver

Daisy Carver is a Scottish painter & sculptor. She graduated with BA Hons from Grays School of Art in 2003.

Daisy describes herself as a self- motivated artist, activator & philospher.  There is a home-made, hands-on, interpersonal experience in the creation and completion of each piece that carries the human helical information internally and inter-relates with our environment.

“My practice explores a self-generated mythic language. It is the beginning of an old conversation. Facilitating our senses with an unconditional  remembrance of our human journey.”

camilla jackson

Camilla’s talents as a painter and sculptor are in her blood: her grandmother, Tonie Brignall, trained under John Skeaping and exhibited at The Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, while her father trained as an illustrator and cartoonist.

After attending Bournemouth Art College, Camilla spent two years in Florence, where she studied at the Charles Cecil School. Here she learned and mastered the atelier technique of sight-size, as employed by the likes of Reynolds and Sargent. She returned to England and the Cotswolds, where she started out as apprentice to the legendary Philip Blacker. Amongst other projects during this time she helped sculpt the life size bronze of Best Mate which can be seen at Cheltenham race course.

Camilla then moved to London, living on a cargo boat and working from her studios in the Gasworks in Parsons Green. During this time her work was exhibited on several occasions, included at a solo show in Cork Street.

She divides her time between Dorset,Gloucestershire and London. Camilla  is available for commissions, be they portraits, horses or pets, rendered in charcoal, oil or clay.
catherine cazalet

Catherine Cazalet is London born and raised. Encouraged by her artist mother, she cultivated an early interest in art, inspired also by forays into more rural territories in the UK and Europe.

Prior to undertaking a degree in Fine Art at Newcastle University, Cazalet completed a Foundation Course at Byam Shaw (now a part of St. Martins, UAL) and took a year to study at the prestigious Studio School in New York. Here, the focus was on the figure, but was entirely free from technical restraints.

Her rich and varied studies led her to an apprenticeship at the Sterling Studios, London: a specialist decorator’s workshop – where she explored working with materials – from metals to mirrors, glitter to gold leaf.

These experiences combined and an interest in colour, composition and history and origins of design have led Cazalet to develop a unique style. While her classical training underpins Cazalet’s creative investigations, she longs for the abstract – and these dialogues are evident in her often vibrant and geometric output.

Cazalet takes inspiration from Hockney, Picasso, Peter Doig, Henri Rousseau, Basquiat and Matisse.
Nick carrick

Nick Carrick uses nature and the representational world as a springboard intoabstraction for his paintings. The subject matter is diverse, ranging from newspaper clippings, old photos, personal memories both poignant and insignificant, and things that capture his attention on a walk or train journey. “Abject beauty to me often lies within the mundane and banal that is so often overlooked in everyday life.”
Eleanor Campbell


Eleanor Campbell trained for four years at Glasgow School of Art and achieved a Degree in Fine Art.

During her foundation course she also studied textiles, ceramics, bookbinding and photography, she decided to follow graphic design as a profession upon graduating.

This role eventually led her to London where she became Creative Director within the design field, focussing on branding / packaging design, she ran a large design studio. She became a member of the Chartered Society of Designers.

After 10 years in London she moved to the Cotswolds to set up her design business Campbell Aylin Design, working with large blue chip, mainly food and drink companies and their branding design and development.
