Artists participating in the next Hopmarket Arts on 21st April are:
After a hiatus after completing my fine art degree, I got back into artwork after my mother had an amputation a few years ago and wanted a design for a couple of her casts and prosthetics, which led to life drawing classes, which really helped with my confidence, which enabled me to exhibit in several local Worcestershire events.
I find painting, printing and photography a way of shutting everything out, just giving myself a bit of time to do something creative and switch off. I want my artwork to be fun, which is why I use lots of colour and a bit of sparkle in my paintings, using nature and the animals I photograph as inspiration.
Oxlade-Arnott is known for her unique watercolour and fine line ink depictions of historically or nationally significant architecture. She is a Worcester based architectural watercolour artist from a family of draughtsmen, painters, potters and sculptors. Having two distinct styles, a traditional ‘Classique’ which is bright watercolour with detailed fine line ink and ‘Vivid’, simplistic bold lines on layers of pure vibrant colours, inspired by the pop art genre and best seen on large scale canvasses.
Jilly is known nationally for her works of Worcester, London, Cheltenham, Malvern and Ludlow and is gaining a following from the international collector’s scene for both her classique global and vivid work.
Architecture and its’ appreciation is of importance to Oxlade-Arnott, who commented “Buildings are the foundation of our lives, the interaction we all have with them may be inconsequential but if, once in a while you stop, look up, you’ll be surprised by what you’ve missed and how varied and intricate the urban landscape can really be.”
Justine Morris Designs
Justine creates contemporary silver jewellery using traditional silversmithing techniques from her garden studio in Worcestershire. Her designs are based on classic shapes using hammered and textured finishes on her jewellery. She also incorporates stones and other metals such as copper, but her favourite is seaglass due to its natural shapes and texture.
She sells mainly at craft fairs in Worcestershire and via her online Etsy shop. Private commissions are undertaken, especially using seaglass collected by her clients to create unique meaningful pieces.
Laura studied illustration at Hereford College of Arts in 2011 where she achieved a BA (hons) in the subject. Taking inspiration from the world around her and her pet dogs Laura specialises in animal and pet illustrations, creating each one with watercolour pencils and pen. She aims for each one to show the character of the animal and takes commissions for both pet illustrations and portraits.
Penny, was born and bred in Worcester, as a teenager she worked in Shropshire working for a bespoke hand painted tile company. She funded herself through University, where she graduated as a Teacher by buying children’s second hand furniture and painting them with Disney characters and fairies as well as wall murals.
Art has always been a huge part of her life and her dream is to become a full time artist and teacher of art techniques. This dream is one that is becoming a reality, as she now has her own art studio and workshop. She is selling well and has displayed at the Worcester Art gallery and various other places across Worcester and Malvern with the Worcester Society of Artists.
