Having studied art in a variety of forms for over 10 years, at a relatively young age, Victoria Stothard has already created and sold over 2000 original pieces of art. Eternally obsessed with art in every form she works prolifically, striving to improve every facet of her work.
She constantly experiments with style and materials, but only exhibits and sells the works she feels best represents the highest quality.
Influences upon her work vary greatly; from the symbolic botanical studies by artist Georgia O'Keefe to the starkly contrasting colour manipulation of Mark Rothko, the sculptural passion of Vivienne Westwood's couture and thought provoking, emotive and energetic works of Damien Hirst and Jackson Pollock.
These influences are most apparent in her understanding of the conscious and subconscious workings of the human mind; compositions subtly influence the viewer, through their form and the use of sumptuous colours and layered textures.
Victoria strongly believes that the beauty of the World as discovered through her creative and energetic art should be accessible to everyone and so despite their popularity her works are sensibly priced.
Shirley Allford studied art at Warwickshire College and has since enjoyed exploring and finding her own unique style. Her love of the countryside and her interest in the cyclic nature of emotions has deeply influenced her work.
Her paintings; often placing birds or other wild-life in evocative landscapes, have a dream like quality, which like many dreams has the potential to turn into something more threatening. The emotion with which she approaches her work, shines through.
She has exhibited across the Midlands in the last couple of years and her work is owned by collectors across the UK. She deliberately prices her work to be affordable to all.
