Abstract 1

The natural environment has always been Joseph’s greatest source of inspiration and motivation.

I paint mainly in Acrylics in a semi-abstract style, and am becoming increasingly interested in using collage and mixed media in my work.

The subjects I paint are varied and depend on what inspires or interests me at the time but I particularly enjoy using mixed media.

Landscape 2

Julie moved to Milford on Sea in 2014, and is inspired by the wonderful Hampshire coast line, translating it into ‘abstractions of reality'. She is fascinated by the feel of the landscape and always works in series, her studio becoming a three-dimensional ‘sketchbook’ of ideas and experiments.

Keith enjoys painting in oils, watercolour and acrylics. His subjects include local scenes of the New Forest and coast, animals and abstracts.
