‘I removed a lot of the initial narrative that I originally put into this painting. I thought it worked well as just a scene and didn’t need to rely on a story to be effective.’

About The Artist

Born in 1985, Will Rochfort grew up in Lymington on the south coast of England and, apart from his time studying Illustration and Fine Art at Kingston University, he has lived there all his life. Since graduating in 2008 his focus has been primarily oil painting. Will’s main reason for becoming an artist is from a passion for creativity.

“There is rarely any strong meaning or message behind my work – narrative takes a large role because I like the work to be emotive through what is being portrayed, but creativity is the driving force behind all of my paintings”

From 2008 to 2010 Will Rochfort worked as an Official Artist for the 2012 London Olympics, working with Olympic Gold Medalists, producing paintings in support of the Games and its associated charities.

As well as completing several portrait commissions, Will Rochfort is always searching for new ideas for paintings and usually finds this in books or cinema. With influences ranging from Degas to Rockwell, to the films of Steven Spielberg, it is narrative that really interests Will and he always aims to have a story within his work.

“I am a very visual painter and with the public being my target audience over the art establishment, I always aim to depict scenes that, through the characters portrayed, I hope people can relate to and enjoy”

About The Artist

Always enthusiastic about drawing, Mike started by copying from comic books at the age of about seven or eight.

Pursuing further education in art was not encouraged at school (or home) so he studied zoology, sometimes known as the ‘artist’s science’ (possibly because of the amount of drawing involved).

A long career in computer software development didn’t allow for too much artistic progress, so Mike is now making up for lost time. He is fairly prolific and generally paints subjects based on places that he knows and enjoys, using either oils or acrylics.

Although his paintings are fairly figurative, his inclination is towards more abstraction. Unfortunately, the left side of the brain doesn’t always share this ambition and has an undue influence on the results.

About The Artist

Wendy Jelbert has been a teacher for over 35 years, a commissioned author of 41 art instructional books and has made 12 art DVDs for Television and the commercial world.

She is a demonstrator and lecturer to Art Societies and has taught in many of the top residential colleges including West Dean College, Missenden Abbey, London, and Dedham Hall Essex. She is an accredited demonstrator for Daler Rowney, Faber Castell, Caran D'ache and Winsor and Newton.

She is pleased to accept commissions in Watercolours, Acrylics, Pen, Line and Wash or Mixed Media, on most subjects, such as your home, children in Rock Pools, or a favourite village, beauty spot or Coastal Scene.
She comes from an artistic family where her mother, grandmother, husband, children and grandchildren are also painters; some professional and some prize winners!
