Victor Henderson ~ Artist Statement
I work primarily in watercolour, and work directly and without any preparatory drawing.
I often do some rapid on-site colour wash and line and then in the studio I will work on two or three papers moving from one to the other to allow for the varied drying times of different papers and paint and changing colour, brushes, or using what comes to hand to make a mark.
Buying a piece of art or craft is easy and affordable.
You can buy anything by a living artist, and spread the cost in ten more manageable instalments.
With Own Art, you can borrow between £100 to £2,000 interest free. Own Art is designed to make buying contemporary art and craft easy and affordable.

Jennifer Watt ~ Artist Statement
My work is inspired by natural organic forms and the beauty inherent in their designs. I search to create work which achieves a similar emotional response . I am moved by simple forms, clean and void of any unnecessary components, sculpture sincere to its form ,material and surface.
My work is mainly executed in clay or wood. The clay being cast in either bronze or resin both in limited editions.
