DAWN HOLMES Painter.
As a painter I am inspired by the ever changing mood and drama of the Peak District.
I work mainly in acrylic, watercolour with charcoal and pastel. My work is the result of living in this environment, experiencing the effects of the weather on the surroundings landscape the colours, textures and aiming to capture its unique atmosphere.
PAT EVANS Painter.
Having taught art for many years, I now have the opportunity to focus more on my own work, - drawing and painting.
I am inspired by the ever changing colours, tones and moods of the landscape, very often through the dramatic effects of weather conditions.
I work mainly in watercolour, pastel, acrylics and mixed- media, conveying the varying light , textures and rhythms of the surrounding moor land, and other landscapes and natural form.

LYNDON EVANS Illustrator, Artist.
I successfully exhibited art and fine print in my early days, and I applied my skills to create for Film and TV design.
I have always used a sketch book for ideas and as a recording tool for my work.
This helps to keep my work, hopefully, spontaneous. I usually create in pencil, charcoal, and pen, with watercolour and inks.
Sensitive to animation and movement in landscape, I focus on the layers of changing light and texture created by the elements on the features of Derbyshire.

MARIA TARNOWSKA - Ceramic Designer.
My ceramic designs are handcrafted in my Hayfield studio and feature wildlife such as dragonflies, bees, butterflies, lizards and sea life. I use hand building and sculpting techniques to create a range of designs including large bowls, planters, vases, candelabra, lidded boxes and sculptural pieces. Each design is hand painted with stoneware glazes and lustres are used to create jewel like effects.
My inspiration comes from my love of wildlife and the textures and patterns found in nature. Each piece is unique and makes a truly individual gift.
STEPHEN GRIEVE Jeweller/Goldsmith - original hand crafted jewellery.
I work with gold, silver and semi precious stones to create handcrafted jewellery that is eye catching and original. My passion and inspiration comes from natural textures and patterns and is reflected in the techniques used..
Buying handmade jewellery offers individual design and the opportunity to wear jewellery that is original and unique.
I recycle silver and gold melting them down to create these truly exciting designs.
