Artists taking part include

Emma Appels-Riley


Avenda Burnell-Walsh


Homages and grafts from Schiele and Klimt continue a conversation already left hanging in the artistic air … and propose a dialogue with painters who will surely follow.

These portraits free the real sitters of Holbein, Vermeer and Klimt from the constraints of corsets and convention. It’s 2017 and women will no longer be compelled to be beautiful for their audience; only for themselves, and on their own terms.

So what might these sitters have been thinking? Avenda seeks to give them a modern voice. The corset is off, and it is not going back on.  “One is bigger than the other, get over it.” “That’s the last time I’m going to wax my upper lip, get over it.” ”This studio is freezing and I’m not even getting the minimum wage.” “No idea what I can make for supper.”

Clare Fowley


Anne Gwynn


Yvonne Hellin-Hobbs


Tony Homer

Working in the studio is important to Tony as he likes to refine ideas that have been sketched outside.

There are some consistent themes like surface pattern, colour and texture but often the combinations of unforseen elements are what makes a work interesting.

Jenny Jenkins


Having retired from a successful medical career and following a two year course in Art and Design with the Open College Network, this love of art and creativity, has become my main interest.

Encouraged by my family and friends, I am enjoying the delight of experiencing the many and varied forms of expression, from pen and ink sketches, oils, watercolours and pastels, to three-dimensional work.

Inspired by the techniques and skills of other artists and my own observations, I follow no fixed style. Hence, new ideas always excite me.


 Angie Jenner

As an artist, Angie tends to spend a great deal of her time on her own; which she likes but admits that she does miss the company of other fellow artists.

Her studio space is a bit on the small side…. and her new work is growing in size.

Whilst her art work is mainly figurative it could also be described as expressionistic as its content is emotional and themed on her imagination and dreams.

Mike Leaman


Ann Lunn

Ann started painting when she moved to Dawlish fifteen years ago. She began sketching her grandchildren then had a go at painting them and loved it!

She soon moved on to other subjects.   Now she is painting in various styles and mediums and the canvases are getting bigger and bigger!.


A self  taught artist based in Bishopsteignton, Migglet works in various mediums and loves to convey movement and emotion in her work.


Kwerky Krafts


Lee Pover – Coastal Arist

Living and working in the South West you are never too far from the sea and it is obvious to see the influence it has on my art.

I create wonderful scenes in ceramics with driftwood and other things found on the beach that capture the atmosphere of the local fishing villages, ports  “My art and crafts have a strong nautical theme with fishing trawlers and sailing boats, beach huts, junior sailing pontoons, fish and lighthouses. These pieces can adorn any home adding a warm nautical element in either a wall hanging, individual driftwood pieces depicting fishing villages or ceramic fishing trawlers.”

“With the many hidden coves and expansive coastal beaches on my doorstep, I just love to go beach combing and scouring the local beaches regularly to collect many pieces of flotsam and odd bits and pieces cast ashore by the south-westerlies that hit our shores. I also collect larger pieces of driftwood from around the River Dart to utilise when compiling my ceramic pieces. The wood gives inspiration to the ceramics that I make and use for each final piece”.


Jane Ripley


John Sellings


Margaret Sheppard


Roger Smith



Lynette Taylor

Colette Thomas



David Warren

Jan White

Jan is self-taught and her Paintings and Limited Edition Giclee Prints are often recognised by the continued flow of her artwork on to the mount, which she creates by hand embellishment, ensuring a unique and totally individual piece of art.  In 2016 Jan won Best Watercolour Painting at NAAG Art exhibition and this year has been awarded the June Urban Memorial Cup at the Torbay Guild of Artists 50th Exhibition for Best Watercolour Painting, she was also delighted this year to exhibit in the Biennale internationale des arts et de la culture in Perros Guirec, France.

She has attended a number of workshops in the West Country and continues to soak up knowledge and skills from other artists sharing the same passion.

Living the dream!



Sue Williamson



Rhian Wyn-Harrison. 

works from her home studio in Paignton, creating quirky and colourful mixed media art.

She repurposes old books, newspapers and maps as both the backgrounds and the inspiration for her work. Her challenge is always to find an unexpected interpretation between word and image. Drawn by hand, then coloured with ink, gouache paint and pastel, Rhian uses traditional techniques and injects humour or wit wherever possible!
