Quality Norfolk Artwork


John Palmer

Being able to draw from an early age, I always hoped I could use this ability later on in life but, apart from continuing to draw caricatures of family and friends, I gave up art at 20 when I began working.

Now, roughly 40 years later, I have found time and space to start again and produce acrylics, mostly of animals, with a personal aim to get life and humour into the painting.

I am currently exhibiting at Banham Zoo, The Ferini Gallery and at The Studio Art Gallery.

Jan Heath

Largely a self-taught painter, I began when I retired from teaching in 2013. I paint in acrylics and oils and am influenced by everything I see, with children featuring frequently in my work. I am drawn to their innocence and lack of inhibitions and enjoy capturing moments in their lives. 

My work is continually evolving as I experiment with colour and different textures using a palette knife, sometimes just going where the paint takes me.

My Paintings have featured inside and on the cover of Paint magazine and are in private collections as far away as Australia.

Tony Colledge

My latest exhibition features some previously unseen photographs which have been transformed by the use of a bespoke 'dynamic' colour palette, tailored to suit each individual picture to achieve the best effect.

Pre-designed filters have not been used.

Ruth Church

I began painting and drawing at an early age and have always been interested in colour. I am mainly self-taught but attained a diploma from the London Art College for my botanical painting a few years ago. I enjoy working with a variety of mediums; watercolour, oil, acrylic and pastel, as well as drawing and feel equally at ease painting portraits, landscapes, pets or botanicals.

Rita Bishop

I am a retired civil servant. I discovered this wonderful hobby a few years ago and, after some tuition, I now paint regularly with my own group in Great Plumstead.

 Recently I exhibited with the Norfolk Broads Art Society at Blickling Hall and I also have 3 of my cartoons in the Art Exhibition at this year's Royal Norfolk Show.

Oswaldo Merchor

Oswaldo has lived on the Norfolk coast for over 45 years. Originally from Peru, he comes from a family with a long artistic tradition. 

Completely self taught in technique and design, his main sculptural subjects are birds. Many months of study and research ensure each piece is a skilfully crafted work of art which is then cast mainly in bronze.

Fehmi Gokes

I am a self-taught mosaic artist and I have developed my own style over the years by experimenting with shape, colour and texture.

As well as making mosaic pictures, I also create my designs on tables and mirrors using a variety of materials, such as ceramic, glass and wood.

Wayne Ford IEA (Assoc)

I have been a professional Illustrator/Artist all my working life and during that time I have worked for some of the largest publishing houses in London and New York.

My work covers many genres painted mainly in watercolour, although I do enjoy venturing into the realms of abstract art by way of a change from my usual highly detailed work.

I have had work accepted in the IEA open exhibitions in 2015, 2016 and 2017 and now have been appointed as an IEA provisional member.

A wonderful Gallery and Tea Shop. Love the Art on view.  Look forward to coming again.

Colin Harvey

Originally a commercial photographer, I moved into fine art and sculpture as Principal Photographer at the National Gallery, London, and worked with many well known artists including Peter Blake and Paula Rego.

I have previously had two joint exhibitions, at St Martin's in the Fields and the Sheridan Russell Galleries in London, before recently moving to Norfolk. 

I am now freelance, and concentrate on capturing the moods and atmosphere of the East Anglian Landscape.

Tony Colledge

As well as classic, traditional landscapes that reflect a 'perfect' moment in time, I also enjoy taking photographs which have an unusual or striking texture, colour or shape. 

  Alternatively, I like the challenge of capturing natural patterns from different viewpoints.

Ann Feavers

I specialise in reviving the Victorian art form of glass pictures. 

I use original Victorian engravings taken from historical magazines like the Illustrated London News

The images are screen printed on the reverse of the glass and then I hand paint them to get the finished picture.

Vivienne Tuddenham (Textile Artist)

I have been sewing in one form or another since a very early age but when I retired I decided to concentrate on textiles and embroidery. I spent the next three years taking City and Guild Stages I and II.

Since then I have been producing pictures using varying forms but I now seem to favour applique with top stitching and use many techniques, including hand-dyeing, watercolour paints and crayons.

Happiness is a needle and thread!

A very nice Gallery with an interesting variety of work and subjects.

Danica Bloomfield

Although I have now been painting for 20 years, I still consider myself a beginner - learning all the time. 

I have a rather eclectic approach to my art, using a wide variety of media from lino and collograph prints to watercolours and oils.
