Guest artists #10

Miriam Kilpatrick

Maud Barrett

Maud is a purposeful repurposer with extensive experience upcycling materials in both her artistic practice, and her personal life. Article

Gaynor Zealey

Gaynor questions "seeing is believing" and the viability of our visual perception when the interaction of light, shade, reflection and atmosphere, combine to confound ocular sensibility. She is inspired by the meeting of visual ambiguity, belief and doubt.
