About The Artist

Jean M. Baylis (née Hearsey) born 1950 and educated in London, thoroughly enjoyed painting, with pictures exhibited whilst at school.

Although her heart was always in the countryside and painting, life took her away from that path for many years until fate took a hand. A move to Berkshire, where Jean found two wonderful horses and started long distance riding. A later move to the New Forest / East Dorset border with her family and horses, offered Jean many long hours out in all weathers, riding in the hidden depths of the countryside and over the spectacular Dorset coastline.

In such a natural environment, the artist in her suppressed all those years before, rose to the surface. She saw pictures everywhere she looked, in the dark skies over the sea, in the depths of the forest and in wonderful landscapes. The urge to paint could no longer be ignored. She studied Mixed Media & Visual Techniques City & Guilds at adult education and was referred to study Art & Design at the Art Institute, Bournemouth University, followed by traditional painting methods and life studies at The Prince’s Drawing School, Kensington Palace, London.

Landscape and marine subjects using oil or acrylic media are Jean’s favourite, but occasionally the use of mixed media comes to hand, or pastel, particularly for equestrian subjects. Jean enjoys the spontaneity of working en-plein air, painting what the landscape and weather offer and allowing the atmosphere and paint to create. Her journey of discovery in oil, acrylic, watercolour or pastel are also created at home in her farm studio overlooking grazing fields, on the border of the New Forest.

Art, like life, is a continual learning curve, over which we have no real control. Each mark, thought, word or line adds to, or deviates from the experience on the journey.

About The Artist

David has done a little painting for many years, but it is only in his recent retirement that he has begun to take it more seriously.

David worked professionally as a cinematographer, and was employed for thirty years at the BBC Television Film Unit. It is the skills learnt in his profession, of composition, perspective, lighting and colour that he endeavours to bring to his paintings.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, photography plays a large part in the inspiration for his paintings and he works entirely from his own photographs.
He can be inspired by almost any subject, but a lifelong love of the sea results in a strong bias towards maritime subjects.

David's preferred medium is water soluble oils on prepared board.

"Having tried a “do-it-yourself “ website construction, with horrible results, a friend recommended Chris.
I have been more than happy with the website he designed for me, and it has had a lot of positive reaction.
He has just produced a shiny new version, which is even better!"

"Dear Chris,
We are delighted with our art website. In addition to all the items we requested, you have added many artistic details that really enhanced the site.
We would also like to thank you for your patience, explaining and talking us through all the concepts we did not understand.
It has also been reassuring knowing that you are on the end of the phone ready to answer our queries as they arise.
It has been a pleasure working with you.

Best regards."

"This is the second website that Chris and Colette from Surrey Artists have designed for me and I am delighted with the result. They put in an amazing amount of work collating a large amount of detail to ensure my paintings are professionally displayed.
The finished website has already attracted a large number of serious enquiries some of which have been converted"
