The Art Of Movement

Bron Freake

A story of collaboration between dancers and artists. As an ex-dancer, Bron responds sensitively to sounds, rhythms, feelings, gestures, words and anything that gives her inspiration and how it influencesher own art. The feelings can be sparked by a stormy sky, a waterfall or a beach at low tide. In other words anything that makes her senses react creatively

Avian Jewels

Graham Gynn

Graham is an agricultural zoologist whose bird-paintings are inspired by what he describes as 'the avian jewels' he has studied in the forests of Thailand. He is also a musician and says the 'jazzy, bluesy' music he plays, 'with a touch of Latin in it somewhere', also influenceshis paintings. The profitsfrom his latest CD will go to rainforest conservation, as will a percentage of the revenue from the sale of his paintings.

The Image-Making Process

Beth Munro

Beth enjoys talking about the various image-making processes involved in print making and might even do a demonstration of her work for us. She lives in a Cornish village on the south coast near Looe, so the subject mat-ter of her art-work is inspired as much by what she feels for the beautiful surrounding landscape, as it is by the seascape and the marine life below it.

Her work is particularly influencedby Latin American art and that of her Mexican idol, Frida Kahlo. She might even do a short demonstration for us of how she creates some of her art-work.

A 'Piskies' interpretation of West Cornwall

Paul Westaway

Paul's refreshing approach to his artwork is personal, so has not been constrained by any formal training. Although he says he's always been interested in advertising art, such as old posters of fairgrounds and railways, his inspiration now comes more from the seas, coast and skies, even the mythical creatures known as the 'Piskies' of West Cornwall, where he's been living since 1984.
