NICK D I want to produce the most beautiful and powerful images I can, and I won’t be satisfied until I've captured images I think are worth five stars. These are my absolute favourite shots, and I've only produced around 180 of them over the years, so these are the special ones, the ones I'm most proud of. They can show any subject – not just wildlife – but they must convey the magic of being there. I started out taking 'portraits' of animals. That was all very well, and a lion may look beautiful sitting on the African savannah or a jaguar prowling through the Brazilian Pantanal, but there isn't much energy in those pictures. What I try to do now is to produce 'action shots' when the bird or animal is in motion. I still take portraits - and sometimes you don't have a choice! - but my ideal image is much more likely to be a cheetah chasing down an impala than a bird perched on a branch!

EMILY K Emily was born into a family of artists in Zambia in the early eighties, these roots have always had a deep impact on her painting. The majority of Kirby's work has drawn on the study of people and wildlife, using the figure as the central object for interpretation. Bold brush work and a loose expressive technique has become a defining aspect of her work. Emily has exhibited internationally and in 2012 was awarded The Chairman's Ngoma Award for Visual Artist in the Diaspora by the Zambian Arts Council. Emily can currently be found working in her East London studio.

DEREK Graduate artist Derek originates from the south west of England, where he currently works and resides. Derek’s work is autobiographical, drawing expressive emotions from his past, being inspired by characters in his life and their psychological vulnerabilities and interactions. He has expressed himself through the cathartic medium of art since childhood, revealing emotions in varying mediums; film, sound, 3D and for the most part 2D. More recently he has been working in monochrome. In effect removing all colour, working in white, with occasional tones of grey, using unique reliefs of muslin to create form, revealing eclectic, emotional expression through contorts of paint soaked fabric. Expressionistic yet controlled, muslin is thrown repeatedly and teased until the ethos of the piece is revealed.

"The artist is not a person endowed with free will who seeks his own ends, but one who allows art to realise its purposes through him. As a human being he may have moods and a will and personal aims, but as an artist he is "man" in a higher sense - he is "collective man," a vehicle and moulder of the unconscious psychic life of mankind." (from 'Psychology and Literature', 1930) Carl Gustav Jung

EMMA F Emma works from her bright and cheerful studio in south west London. She mainly paint still life paintings with a quirky twist. She says of her work ” I am drawn to beautiful forms whether they are man-made or natural. My aim is to show my appreciation of the simple beauty of such objects by their sensitive portrayal in my paintings. In my work I'll often draw and paint the forms many times, scratching and scraping through to previous layers to create a broadly descriptive, but beautiful image. My aim is not to ‘copy' the object in paint, but rather to describe and celebrate what I see with mark making skills that have developed into my personal style as an artist.”

BETH Internationally exhibited artist Beth studied Textile Design at The University of the West of England and graduated in 2004.From Bristol she moved to London for a little under a decade, working in costume for film, television and theatre and teaching arts and craft workshops. In 2009, Beth was offered a post as an Artist in residence at Wycombe Abbey School for Girls. The residency helped her focus and build a strong foundation for her practise, exploring both femininity and textures and introducing her to the concept of Wabi-Sabi. Returning to London in 2011 Beth has been exhibiting in art fairs and exhibitions both nationally and internationally since. �The foundation of my current body of work lies in the Japanese aesthetic of WabiSabi: exploring the beauty found within transience. From finding a rotting garment by a stream to a stream of consciousness, my current collection travels through ethereal, abstract landscape style paintings into figurative ink drawings that investigate the subconscious. My work is extremely cathartic. I spend hours slowly manipulating the ink to find the right composition and sometimes when its dry writing streams of consciousness on top of the work. The writing for me is an important element, as a dyslexic it can at times be a huge struggle, but at other times the thoughts flow and the time flies. My work therefore is about time and energy and expresses and exposes me as a person.�

WILLIAM B Inspired by the old master, but retaining a very contemporary approach to the nude, William’s paintings are stunning in their exploration of the body, water and light. “I have always been inspired by the human figure and the effect light has upon it. I have used various ways of portraying the body such as dance, swimming and also boxing but it is the body itself that interests me rather than the activities in particular. It is the physicality of the form and the beauty of the athletic figure that makes me want to paint.” “I usually have an idea of how I want the painting to look but in some pieces the original idea moves into something else and I leave some of the older workings, the initial sketches and drawing, the structure as I love to leave that energy visible. I try to convey emotionally charged work using light and shadow as well as rich and contrasting colour. I want a level of realism but I also want to escape from the confines it can impose and react to the paint and image in a more expressive way.” William uses lots life drawing for reference but information and ideas come from all areas including films, books and magazines, which are all utilized to reinforce the imagery of the painting. Klimt, Bacon, Schiele, Leonardo Da Vinci, Caravaggio, Waterhouse are some of the artists that he has studied and that have had a great influence on his work.

LISA H Lisa is a contemporary abstract artist. Sharing her time between North London and North Yorkshire. My speciality is acrylic and mixed media and I take my influence from the patterns and textures of our amazing world.” “I love the feeling of freedom and energy that the use of different mediums allows. Often, something as simple as a variation in texture or direction can create something totally unexpected. Each of my works reflects the different layers and adventures in life that create our own unique individuality. It is for this reason that I leave it up to the owner of the piece to decide which way it should hang.” “We all see something different!”

AYESHA My recent works lean more towards abstract expressionism than my earlier works. With these paintings I am concerned more with conveying the feeling and emotions as opposed to an accurate representation of the physical form. Although I am using the human form to express this, these are not portraits. For me, colours carry energy and I feel charged when surrounded by intense colour. We are surrounded by energy and vibrations and as individuals we all emit this at varying frequencies. You sometimes hear the sayings ‘you’re looking very vibrant’ or ‘I’ve got a bad vibe’ or ‘my spirit just don’t take to this person…’ or many words spoken that make reference to the aura/ spirit/ vibe/ energy of an individual. This is what I am trying to capture and convey through my paintings The movement in my paintings symbolise the life flow that moves within and surrounds us.

PETER M Pete studied art at Leeds University and has spent his career in both teaching and as an artist. He is known as the Post Pop Art Man and has been creating images using postage stamps for more than 30 years. He is inspired by the Pop Art movement and particularly admires the works of Roy Lichtenstein and Andy Warhol. His portraits and images are created by recycling postage stamps into pixelated images and designs are both figurative and non-representational. He has work owned and commissioned by clients in Australia, France, America and Portugal as well as the UK. He was commissioned by Whiteley’s Shopping Centre in Bayswater, London in 2012 to create a portrait of the Queen to celebrate her Diamond Jubilee. This is one of the largest stamp image Pete had created, measuring 10ft by 16ft, using over 30,000 stamps and was hung in the Central Atrium within Whiteleys. A large portrait of the Queen was created to celebrate her nine decades as monarch and is made from nine 3 foot square canvases using 30,000 stamps and is entitled '30,001 Queens'

RALUCA Raluca was born on 9 December 1980 in Cluj-Napoca city, which is situated in the heart of Transylvania, a region with a rich political and cultural life even since ancient times. After she graduated from the High-School of Art “R. Ladea”, in the autumn of 1999, she enrolled at the University of Visual Arts and Design “Ion Andreescu” from Cluj, where she studied Painting for six years; this period of her life played a decisive role in her formation as an artist. The next two years following the graduation from the university she taught Painting and Drawing at a school in Cluj, which was a good opportunity for her to acquaint with the spontaneity of children’s creations and their magic universe. She moved to Rome and recently in Naples where she now lives and works.

GAVIN My portfolio is always 'work in progress' whether creating (art) observing (sketches) or on commissions (projects). Having graduated with a BA (Hons) Fine Art, I chose to take an extended sabbatical from sugar tints, soft grounds, solarisation and f-stops to concentrate on getting a proper job. However a career in design and production, whilst allowing me within reason to indulge in creative fantasies, never really fully satisfied my artistic appetite. So back full-circle from where I started.. Returning to be a full-time artist, to use my talents as a photographer, print-maker and collagist in an attempt to create images that resonate and appeal.

JOSEPH S Joseph studied at Liverpool Art School and followed this with post-graduate study at St Martin's School of Art. He has over twelve years experience as a freelance illustrator for a wide variety of clients in advertising, publishing and design. “Inspiration for my recent work comes primarily from Nature and in particular butterflies, moths and the folklore and mythology surrounding these specific insects, to produce work with a narrative quality. I tend to work in series and draw inspiration from classical and popular music, fashion and graphic signs and symbols. I am also inspired by the Victorian obsession of collecting, preserving and presenting insects in boxes. My butterflies are created from collaged paper and each butterfly is individually hand cut. As well as their obvious natural beauty, I agree with the Eastern belief of butterflies as bringers of joy and being the essence of happiness.” “I like the school of thought that butterflies represent the soul.” - Joseph

MONICA I studied painting at Chelsea School of Art in London and graduated in 1977 with a degree in Fine Art. I began my career as a print colourist and then concentrated on animation, working on many commercials, television series and feature films, including the animated sequences in the biographical film about Beatrix Potter, ‘Miss Potter’. In recent years, I have returned to painting, specialising in portrait work and in particular, horses: drawing and painting horses has been a passion of mine since childhood. I have always been intrigued by their beauty and spirit. I prefer to meet the horses before I begin to paint them, (from a photograph either I or the owner has taken) so that I can get to know them and reveal their individual character in the portrait. I paint in a traditional style, in oils, building up layer upon layer, as if I were sculpting them in three dimensions.

FRANCESCO R Francesco’s work frequently places the human figures and nature in an abstract environment supported by a vivid use of colours where subtle gradation and dramatic contrast express nuance of emotion and sensuous physicality. The work also expresses the direct sensation of lived experience through organic shapes and forms woven from flowing lines and the gaze of the viewer. You are invited to participate in a creative encounter with these elements constructing your own visual languages and meanings. “Art is about sharing visual ideas. My canvas may not have a front or a back cover but I try with each study, each painting to represent a work to be read rather than stared at. If through my work as an artist I am able to stimulate thoughts and feelings then I have achieved my goal.”
