Pearl Loves Paisley

Justine trained in Interior Design and has recently taken up her passion for mixed media and textiles. Inspired by a recent move near to the Howardian Hills in North Yorkshire she documents her travels by taking photos of local landscapes and seascapes. She then uses a range of techniques including layering, experimental textiles, collage, applique, hand and free machine embroidery and a range of embellishments to create her pieces. She enjoys sourcing and using recycled objects and her main canvas is predominantly made up of recycled ties which utilise and enjoy the rich patterns and textures of the fabrics themselves.

Venue: Captain Cook Inn/8

Medium: Mixed Media Textiles

Janet Pell

Born in Mirfield, West Yorkshire, Janet now lives in Filey on the beautiful Yorkshire coast, enabling her to produce work which combines her two main interests of wildlife and painting and also providing inspiration for her landscapes and seascapes. Working mainly in watercolour, she also has a keen interest in photography.

Venue: Roraima House, 40 Staithes Lane/7

RJB Photographic

Trading as RJB Photographic, husband and wife team Richard & Janet Burdon are based in Pickering on the edge of the wonderful north Yorkshire moors. Our photography ranges from dramatic coastal sunsets to more subtle subjects like the heather on the moors, but our true passion is for the simple almost minimal winter monochrome images we shoot in the local dales. For us the stark simplicity of a lone tree in a field of snow is a work of art itself.

Pottery has been my hobby for 30 years. I studied at night school in Clevedon.

My etsy shop name is PennyCottagePottery.

Roger Powell

I am an amateur artist who paints in all mediums, using the one that I feel is relevant for the subject. I paint because I enjoy painting and as a result complete a great number of paintings ranging from dogs to landscapes. This year I have painted several pictures of Whitby ,Staithes and other places on the Yorkshire coast.
