Martin McCoy

Although now based in Merseyside, Martin has returned regularly to Ireland and his connection with the Irish landscape and Irish history and writing has increasingly informed the development of his work.

Clare Flinn

Clare’s work is driven primarily by her love of the wilder places of the UK and Ireland. She trained as a printmaker during a Fine Art degree at Wirral Metropolitan College. Her current exploration is with monoprint and monotype, with the action of ink, plate and press – wiping, marking, diluting, the relinquishing of control – being an apt parallel to the forces at work on the landscape that she is portraying in her work.

June Shapter

June is a Maximalist Collage Artist who paints with paper using a ‘more is more’ approach.  She works exclusively with her own hand monoprinted tissue papers, hand cut stencils and a Gelli Plate to create intensely colourful, highly patterned and vibrant collaged pieces.  In her 3D sculptural work read more >>> 

Emily Hughes

Emily’s current body of work consists of hand built slab vessels and porcelain functional pieces. Her work represents her life growing up in a village between a quarry and the sea. Emily represents through her mark making and form the textures and lines found on the mountain side and the contrast between the landscape in which she lives. It is portrayed in this collection by the smooth areas contrasting the ripped edges that are exaggerated naturally by the clay.
