WATER HEATH &HOME


Jo Oakley 4

Jo Oakley was born in London in 1964, and continues to live and work in the capital and on the Kent coast. Her paintings celebrate the world of the home, and the objects that are used and cherished within it. They often feature the motif of a scene viewed through a window, recalling her memory of watching the ebb and flow of the River Thames from the window of her childhood home in Greenwich, London.

Jacqueline Leighton Boyce 22

Trained at Central Saint Martins, ceramicist Jacqueline Leighton Boyce lives and works in Exmoor, drawing inspiration from the landscape which surrounds her. Each of her works is unique and triplefired, her enchanting illustrations built from multiple layers of slips, underglazes, glazes and lustres. This new body of work focuses particularly on the fragility and beauty of nature, seeking to respect and highlight the delicate balance of the natural world.
