Currently Exhibiting:


Louise studied Graphic Design BA (Hons) at UWE with a special interest in animation and typography. She became a title sequence designer working in TV for 15 years before having a family and going freelance. Transferring her skills to the fashion industry, she was part of a small creative team designing seasonal collections and campaigns for a yoga clothing company.

Inspired to pick up a paintbrush for the first time during the pandemic, Louise has started to forge a new creative path and is excited to see where it leads.

She brings her designers' eye to these bold botanical paintings.

Follow her on socials and visit her website to view more of her paintings and prints, including some new abstract work...

Previously Exhibited with us:



Richard Gibson is a painter based in Bath who paints bold, vivid paintings of the natural world, and as he is a keen gardener much of his subject matter comes from his garden. He studied painting at Northumbria University and has exhibited at The Bishop's Palace, Wells, Trebah Garden, Cornwall, in numerous Art Fairs as well as at various local art events.

He has developed a style that is based on observational study whilst endeavouring to embody the vitality and dynamic of nature. The paintings are executed in oil paint allowing for a "painterly" physical technique with bold backgrounds bringing the subject into strong relief producing a powerful sense of presence. The work is informed by his drawings, which are often executed in charcoal and conte crayon and are also boldly executed in a vigorous style with an almost sculptural technique.

Original hand produced screenprints

Louise Boulton is an Artist Printmaker who studied BA(Hons) Graphic Design specialising in Scientific Illustration at Middlesex University, London.

Having worked in publishing and lectured at the University of the Arts, London she developed her own practice at Spike print Studio, Bristol. Working directly in front of nature she produces detailed drawings which are developed into screenprints & etchings. The artworks exhibited here are made by preparing a number of silkscreens with designs which are then hand printed in sequence with inks onto paper, produced in small limited editions which are numbered and signed.

Her work has been exhibited at The Bishops Palace, Wells, University of Bristol Botanic Garden, Trebah Garden, Cornwall, the William Morris Gallery, London and Spike Print Studio, Bristol.
