Jane Burnham

Old College, King Street, , SY23 2AX

I enjoy drawing in charcoal and pastels, and painting in oils. I am drawn to the everyday ephemeral subject matter of fruits and flowers, and to the challenge of capturing a likeness without slavish description. In my portraits I try to convey the essential character and form of the model.

Jessica Leigh Owen

Old College, King Street,

I love colour and lots of it! My paintings are an exploration of paint and colour. I paint abstract pieces, that I hope are uplifting and reveal more the closer you look. I hope that my passion for colour shines through - I paint what I love. Each of my paintings is named after one of my rainbow sheep, combining my two loves.
