Steve Stott’s love of drawing has been with him since childhood and carried on throughout his working life as Visualiser, Designer and Art Director and now as a professional artist. Born in Fulham London and then moving with his parents to Essex he studied at the prestigious Southend School of Art and Design under respected artist Les Shaw. He has exhibited work at the famous Beecroft Gallery, and many others including an exhibition at the Houses of Parliament, the first and only time this has taken place. His work has consistently sold here in the UK and overseas.
Pete Blanchard is a self-appointed ‘Trailway Artist’ drawing a large part of his inspiration from his native rural Dorset particularly views from or toward the discontinued Somerset & Dorset Railway Line [now the Trailway]. He is also, naturally, drawn to the Dorset coast. Since his inaugural exhibition of large landscapes here exactly 3 years ago, he has been exhibiting widely in the local area, both as a part of the local art weeks and in solo shows. Meeting and working alongside established artists since then has been a huge influence upon him and inevitably there is a noticeable transformation in his work. Accepting that an Artist will constantly be in flux throughout their career, Pete is currently drawing on his childhood passion to create. He has become particularly interested in the things that don’t change through the passage of time.
