Andy Cross 'During my teaching career I continued to make jewellery on commission for several years. Then, in 1985 I decided to concentrate on painting. Since my early retirement in 2002 I have had more time to devote to painting my favourite subjects of Landscape and still Life.
Most of my inspiration comes from the surrounding countryside of my home in Lanarkshire and from my frequent visits to France. In my Landscape paintings I am more interested in creating an atmosphere rather than a photographic image.

Barbara Franc I have always been fascinated by the shapes and sculptural forms of animals, they present a never-ending source of inspiration to me. I try to capture a feeling of their movement and presence in my sculpture. For this I use wire and other materials in a way that suggests drawing in three dimensions. This allows me greater freedom to add changes whenever I want during the construction to keep the feeling fluid and to reflect the diversity of movement and form. I increasingly use recycled and discarded materials as I enjoy the challenge of transforming something with a past history into something new and exciting.
