Piers Bishop
Web: www.piers-bishop.com

Most of my work is abstract, though I do create a small amount that is figurative. Media varies from traditional to digital and often encompasses techniques from both areas within a single piece. Influences derive from landscape, maths and sciences.
Work is usually offered for sale as prints because the completed piece often exists only in a digital format. To ensure the best possible longevity I reproduce these using high quality inks and papers designed for archival purposes.

Aziza Essa
Web: www.moodsoncanvas.co.uk
Aziza was born in Lancaster. "Painting is, and has for a long time, been my creative and emotional outlet," she says. Psychology influences all her work along with the people in her life, her environment and her feelings. "In my work I can see my past, I can feel some of my future". Her paintings also convey much of her daily experiences and where she is mentally and spiritually at the time of creating the work -- "the joys and frustration of life, and in truth, even vices of life".

The lotus position by Elaine JacksonElaine Jackson
I was born in Lancaster 1952 and attended Teacher Training College 1972-75. It was here I first found a love of surrealism, especially the work of Max Ernst. I later graduated from Lancaster and Morecambe Art College. Most of my work concerns itself with seeing things in ways that aren't ordinarily accessible to people. Elaine is incommunicado.

Donald Taylor
Web: www.donaldtaylor.org.uk
'
My first love is landscape painting" says Donald. "As a boy my habit was to get up at daybreak on Saturdays and walk up onto the moors above the town, to favourite haunts like Deeply Vale and Knowl Hill, and I would explore every fold and track. It was my ambition to be as good at conveying my feelings of excitement and mystery about the landscape I loved, through painting, with the same intensity that Turner's large landscape painting, 'Gathering Bait, Calais Sands' in Bury Art Gallery communicated to me..."

Over one hundred artists have been members of the Studios and many have exhibited locally, nationally and worldwide, as well as some moving on to higher education.
