Jules Pearson

After visiting Staithes for many years on weekend breaks and falling in love with the area myself and my husband Adrian eventually decided to move here in 2016. My paintings are created using a series of digital processes. I take photographs of the local area which forms the basis of the composition. I then use various types of software and image editing tools to create a unique digital interpretation of my photograph. Using an artists eye, I ignore irrelevant detail and choose not to paint elements that would detract from the final picture. the digital simulation of the traditional creative process includes use of a colour palette and placing brush strokes of various sizes, from under paint to detail, onto the representation of a real canvas. Its a long process but very therapeutic. A hobby hopefully turned into a small business with the help of my husband Adrian doing the website.

Penny Phillips

Penny divides her time between teaching and creating her own work from St Peters School, York. On her return from a 6-week residency in the USA in 2017, Penny began exploring slip and glaze techniques she had developed whilst working there. This experience has taken her in several different directions. The surface decoration of her work has begun to gradually evolve in a more intricate and complex way, using layers of slips and oxides to support her overall fascination with textural surface. In attempting to capture and emphasise the characters of her subjects, her recent work has concentrated on a series of detailed mounted heads. Penny work continues to manipulate the medium of clay, to explore and express the elemental energy of wild things.
