Serena Phillips studied art in Cheltenham and at Camberwell College of Art where she graduated in 1996. She initially chose a different career, "to pay the bills", but having recently returned to her childhood home of Abergavenny, she is now intent on revisiting her real passion.
Her works are inspired by her surroundings; the historic buildings and breathtaking landscapes on her doorstep. She is currently working in a variety of mediums, on paper and canvas, as well as developing her skills in digital photography.
It has always been her childhood dream to be an artist. This is the time for her to fulfil that dream. This is not only her first time at Malvern, but also her first major exhibition.
Kaye Lake is an established floral artist, living and working in beautiful Northamptonshire. She sells internationally and several of her works have been published.
Her work is inspired by the stunning beauty of the natural world, which continues to excite her. The paintings in this exhibition, but a small part of her catalogue, amply showcase her talents. Paintings of other subject matter can be seen by visiting her page on the "artgallery" website. All celebrate nature in its various forms.
Her strong belief, that original art should be available and enjoyed by all, means that she offers her paintings at affordable prices.
Gillian Luff did her formal training in Wrexham at the North East Wales Institute of Technology and Design, gaining qualifications in graphic design and illustration.
But, it was when she moved to the beautiful Isle of Anglesey that she discovered her passion for mountains, clouds and seascapes. Since then she hasn’t stopped painting. She has collectors of her work from many countries; many walks of life.
Her contemporary artwork is all about sea, space, mountains, clouds, movement, fluidity and the force of nature; whether it be a tranquil seascape, vibrant nebula in space, or an apocalyptic ocean.
Her most recent exhibition was at the Knapp Gallery - Regents University - London.
Although very different in outcome, the thing which these three artists have in common, is their need to paint; their need to communicate.
The exhibition is open 7 days a week until July 21st.
