Linda Park gained a BSc (Hons) in Architecture in 1995 and has since concentrated on her passion for painting.
'My inspiration comes from dramatic scenes I see all around me. I like to paint bold landscape interpretations mainly from places I have visited in Scotland and France, looking at views from acute perspectives in order to create dramatic compositions.
I often revisit the places that inspire me at different times of day, in different lighting and weather conditions and in different seasons in order to capture the variations of light and textural qualities of a landscape and to bring new dimensions of scale and depth to my paintings.
Amanda Simmons makes kilnformed glass vessels, playing with gravity in the kiln. 'Manipulating mass, heat, colour and time I aim to create complex, elusive work that has intense colour and pattern which reacts to the light it is placed in. I use opaque glass powders to construct my work because of its varying translucency as the form elongates in the kiln. I finish the kiln fired pieces using many coldworking processes to shape and mark the glass including sandblasting, hand lapping and diamond point and wheel engraving.
We have collected objects ever since we have had somewhere to put things.
