ROMEY BROUGH

 ArtistRomey Brough NDD, ATD has been developing a reputation as a sensitive painter and illustrator since her early days at Harrow School of Art
.
Her work is now exhibited and collected around the world by galleries, corporations and private individuals as she continues her explorations into media, technique and emotion.

Lately she has been developing the technique of monoprinting, a technique used by Degas and others, involving painting acrylic onto glass and transferring the image onto paper.

The appeal of monoprinting for Romey is to do with the contrasts of texture produced by the interaction of chemicals in the paint - the impossibility of repeats of any image - and the the need for the observer to slow down and contemplate the effect that the colour and texture has in stimulating their imagination.

“In my images, I use the juxtaposition of colours and textures to give the illusion of horizontal and vertical planes, thereby recreating the magic of remembered moments and emotions”.

JOANNE MITCHELL - GLASS

Joanne Mitchell’s studio is based in the U.K.’s National Glass Centre, in Sunderland.

She is an artist and designer who creates innovative, contemporary glassware for galleries, public and private commissions, and freelance product design for the glass industry.

Her unique, recognisable style combines understated yet striking shapes and textures, examining the tactility and sensuality of the material.

She is continually developing new work at the cutting edge of glass design, whether working with individuals, companies and corporate clients to produce designs tailored to their specific requirements, or in the development of her personal practice.

“I intend my designs to embody an aesthetic that goes beyond function, to express the material’s inherent qualities and engage the senses. I like to explore the tactility of glass through wheel cutting, cold-working and polishing techniques. I often return to themes of movement, physical interaction and negative space in my work.” Joanne Mitchell
