About The Artist

Fred paints what is around him; that is still-lives of the jugs, bottles, fruit and such in the house, or flowers from the garden. For him, the best way to capture the nature of these things is to employ the expressive possibilities provided by oil painting.

Fred is also attracted to accuracy and detail which can often be achieved through drawing, so working in charcoal or pastel pencils is also important for him.

A concern for understanding the inner workings of things has always motivated Fred and this was evident in his studies. Gaining a B.Sc in Physics took him into the Aerospace industry and then looking for more insight, a Ph.D in Engineering took him into computing. On retirement, Fred wanted to take these concerns into the area of artistic activities and he realised that realistic painting in the traditional “atelier” manner would satisfy him best. This traditional approach to art allows a wide range of expression with great concerns for form,colour and tone.

Fred gained experience in painting and drawing by attendance on courses at various specialist Art Schools. These studies also created a fascination with both portraiture and figure-drawing, which he has maintained.

About The Artist

I create paintings and prints which draw on a wide range of subject matter, some of which involves views taken from nearby landscapes and parks and riverside local to the studio. My interests lie in contemplating a sense of place and colour relationships, through exploring such themes as: luminosity, mood and atmosphere, silhouettes and shadows.
Berkshire Artist Michael Norcross - Park Life
I make drawings and acrylic studies, however the majority of my work is created in oils, most of which are available as high-quality Giclée prints on acid free, archive-quality paper. These are in limited numbered editions at approximately: A3, A2, and A1 sizes and larger on commission.

Any of these can be ordered by contacting me by email or phone. All paintings are available as cards and I also produce hand-made prints using a variety of processes, including lino-cut and woodblock methods.

About The Artist

Kusum Shabong is a self-taught Watercolour artist living in Reading, Berkshire. Although she has enjoyed painting from a young age, she has only seriously started pursuing it for the past six years. She enjoys the medium because of its immediacy and wonderful luminosity. She likes to try different styles and techniques and enjoys painting different subjects, primarily relating to nature, flora and fauna and architecture. A subject of deep contrast attracts and inspires her to paint. Currently she finds herself drawn to the human form and its various emotions and is experimenting with it. She is constantly learning and enjoying her art journey tremendously.

She likes to work from photo references, although she enjoys 'plein air' painting too. She takes some time to study the subject and break it down to its different stages and finds herself painting mostly in a loose, impressionistic style using the medium in transparent washes. Watercolour painting has given her immense pleasure and satisfaction and she feel inspired by watercolour painters of today- like Chien Chung Wei and Thomas Schaller.

Art Group / Exhibitions

Kusum is a member of Art Societies in her area (Reading Guild of Artists and Wokingham Art Society) and these are thriving and active societies and have frequent exhibitions and demos and workshops. She has exhibited with them and is also represented by some online galleries. Her recent achievement has been being one of the winners in the Diversity Exhibition hosted by Doncaster Art Fair.

About The Artist

Thérèse has lived in Reading for over 30 years and uses the town and her allotment as two of the inspirations for her work.

She develops paintings from sketches she makes on location and some of the scenes captured become greeting cards, with the history of the place on the back. Some of her work has represented Reading with its twin town of Dusseldorf and she has been commissioned to depict many local buildings for promotions or as presents. She is very happy to discuss commissions.

Greetings Cards

'My cards carry the history of the image on the front in the case of local places, or recipes on the back of my food pictures, or gardening advice on my allotment cards.'

Art Group / Exhibitions

Thérèse is a member of the Reading Guild of Artists, Woodley and Earley Arts Group, Reading Urban Sketchers and Mixed Media Monday Group. She exhibits at Whiteknights Studio Trail, The Henley Arts Trail and at many local arts events in Berkshire.
