Her vibrant colour palette and juxtaposing textures are key to making her pieces vividly unique. She has exhibited frequently in Bristol, and London. Jill’s dynamic and bold collotype prints and etchings have their roots in teaching all elements of art, working alongside children and teachers in Suffolk schools. She has exhibited with Sudbourne Park Printmakers and Ipswich Art Society.

Ruth Bunnewell – 27th August to 2nd September
Memories and emotions that become attached to places lead me to the landscapes that I choose to paint. Atmosphere and ‘stories’ connected to the landscapes are as important as the aesthetics. I view landscapes almost as backdrops to the events that may happen within. My aim is to capture the essence of a place, reducing the ‘unnecessary’ detail in favour of capturing the feel and fundamental quiddity of each landscape. I am drawn to trees within landscapes; in particular the duality between their natural beauty and their darker side, as to be found in many fairy tales…this contrast continues to fascinate me. I find woodlands and forests simultaneously beautiful and uncanny in equal measures, and I aim to portray in my work these two contrasting qualities.
