Gillian Foster - I am an ex primary school teacher, now working as a private tutor in Maths and English. Art and crafts have always been hobbies since childhood but I learnt watercolour painting with Kevin Williams in my forties. That inspired me to move into mixed media work. The crochet and knitting skills I learnt from my gran proved very useful too and I started to branch out into making dolls, brooches, throws etc. I like drawing people and working with sketch books. I've attended some life classes but am mainly self taught in this. Each year I do an art day with my yr 6 leavers and the work they can produce never fails to astound me. My exhibition includes a range of paintings, collages, knitted and crocheted corsages, papier mache figures, and boats made from driftwood and material found on the beach. I often upcycle discarded 'treasures' and am excited by found objects which I can think about to use in a different way. I hope the exhibits manifest some of the fun and enthusiasm I get from my hobby.


Kevin Williams' work has featured in many private collections both in the UK and abroad. He has been teaching drawing and watercolour painting in Adult Education for 16 years.
"After graduating from Twickenham School of Art I worked as a freelance illustrator and Graphic Designer for large organisations which included Nestle, Evian, Young's Seafoods and Superdrug. My paintings are usually in watercolour or gouache. I paint on location in all weathers. I use a loose energetic style, splattering and an occasional use of collage combined with more considered brushwork. I have recently renewed my interest in life drawing."

Kevin has held an Open studio Event for 20 years. Five of these years were part of Merton Arts Trail.

After a successful stall at the Furzedown Festival Big Day Out, TAT (Tooting Artful Transformations) London Returns to Tooting, showcasing our new collection. We hate to see furniture looking down on its luck and headed towards landfill. We lovingly restore the piece whilst adding a contemporary twist. This collection we have been influenced by the mid century modern period and have complimented the collection with soft furnishings and unique collectible pieces.

Tracey Morant is an art teacher who in her spare time began renovating furniture, along with her other creative outlet of pottery. She loves to find new ways of reusing old things. She met Rachel 17 years ago whilst working in the travel industry and they have remained firm friends, and painting partners, ever since.

Rachel Young is a busy mum who spends a lot of time sanding down old furniture whilst the children are at school. She also works as production manager for the Secret Pillow Project, empowering women in India through training and work opportunities.

**Tracey and Rachel will holding a small sculpture workshop Saturday 4th March free drop in workshop from 10am-midday and will be suitable for 5-12 years (some help will be needed for little hands!)**

This exhibition celebrates the landscapes genre. From the wild corners of our coast to the open riverscapes of central London, these paintings have been inspired by the world around us. Also on display are some works from Katharine’s flower series. She aims to capture the character of each flower. The challenge is to recreate something so delicate in the robust medium of oil paint.

I hope that the works evoke my love of the British landscape and in some way captures the power and beauty of our surroundings. Landscape dominates this exhibition (although not entirely) and is represented through more literal representations and by surrealist influenced work. I hope you enjoy it.

In this latest exhibition of abstract paintings, Jude has captured and transformed sound. Sound, defined as the movement of energy, is expressed through a fusion and the novel interplay of vibrant colours. Bold dynamic brushstrokes are punctuated by junctures of intricate detail and delicate beauty. RHYTHMS OF LIGHT invokes a sense of energy, freedom, life and mystery. Be captivated, uplifted and inspired by this new work,  that promises to engage both your senses and emotions.
