PENNY BAKER REMNENT

Having worked in Fashion Design many years ago, Penny went on to teach and raise a family. Many years later she attended UCA and graduated with a degree in Fine Art. Textiles will always be important making textile and mixed media hangings.

However, her interest in photography allows her to combine her expertise, using conventional media with digital imaging to produce fine art prints. All her images are produced from her own original photographs.

Penny's website is under reconstruction but you can contact her at penny@penart.biz

SUSIE LIDSTONE

Susie has been painting seriously for over 30 years and has always wanted to create. Seeing the beauty that surrounds us, no matter how small-scale, opens your eyes to a new world of taking the time to notice every little thing within buildings, flowers and life in general. Susie’s paintings are very detailed and full of colour – part of how she sees the world. Flowers and buildings are her key areas of interests. It is a way of enjoying a walk in the countryside because you can see beauty in so many things. The vibrant colours of flowers have always fascinated her and watercolour is the perfect medium for her to capture both the calm and vitality.

Buildings, especially historic ones, in and around Farnham continue to be popular subjects for many of her commissions. A walk in the town just looking at buildings keeps her mind and imagination fresh and in the past she has worked on a series focusing on buildings designed by the architect Edwin Lutyens. Susie admires the work of Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Paul Hogarth and Graham Clarke for their quirky take on architecture and buildings and finally one of her best moments was to have a painting exhibited alongside Dame Elizabeth Blackadder in a London exhibition, whose paintings had filled her with delight as a child

Her designs have been used in art projects for Crafts 4 Kids, an online children’s store that led to further artwork for Great Ormond Street hospital and Sir Magdi Yacoub’s Chain of Hope to raise money for life saving heart surgery. She is also collaborating on an ongoing basis with Niklas Von Mehren, the Savile Row Tailor.
