Theresa Taylor lives in the North-West of England. I am a multi-disciplinary artist and I exhibit both nationally and internationally. I make both wall based work and installations using print, print and painting combined, and incorporate print into my installations. My prints are unique, as I prefer to use a combination of techniques within one piece of work, which is an individual process and impossible to repeat. Recently I have used drypoint on aluminum with marble dust, combined with monoprinting.
Catherine Headley lives and works in Leicester, UK. My inspiration comes from my visits to Penwith in Cornwall, a magical land encircled by seas. It is littered with the detritus of long ago, from Bronze Age cromlechs and Celtic crosses to the ruined engine houses of its abandoned tin mines. The moors are a pagan world of standing stones and sweeps of bracken crowned by granite cairns and above the cliffs, a prehistoric landscape of small, misshapen fields, cattle pastures held fast since the Iron Age in a web of granite hedge banks.

With her psychotherapy background Claire appreciates the unfolding creative process, constantly evolving through experimentation and exploration, which can provide visual symbol and metaphor for our own personal journeys. Immersing herself in nature as an avid walker and river traveller, she finds herself drawn to the wonders of the natural world, the landscape and the flora and fauna that inhabit it.
Laine Tomkinson is based in Nottingham in the East Midlands, UK. Laine Tomkinson is a fine art painter and mixed media artist.
