AWARD WINNING SCOTTISH ARTIST
Emily Jean Melville Little is a New Zealand born artist of Scottish origin who grew up in England and is currently based in Rome. She travels frequently between Italy, Ireland and Scotland. Emily began painting landscapes in oils, acrylics and watercolours while living in West Yorkshire in her early teens. Her residence in ltaly furthered the development of her landscapes and her highly personal use of light and colour.
The adoption of collage in her painting, with its ability to reflect and detract light and its suggestion of form, provides another facet to her work.
Although inspired by 'places seen' or 'spaces experienced' (England, Australia, Scotland, Rome and Piedmont in ltaly) Emily's landscapes evolve in the studio and are part of a lengthy process. Part of this involves creating a 'paper palette' by hand colouring Oriental papers before beginning work on the chosen support (cotton heavy weight paper sourced from the Cartiere Miliani, Fabriano).
The process is often a physical and mental battle where materials and form are pushed to their structural limits. Sometimes with no preconceived point of arrival the painting reaches a state of balance and harmony when colour, texture and marks form a harmonious whole.

Garth’s work is big, bold and full of movement. An expressionistic style with lavish use of colour Garth works mainly in traditional oils. He is influenced by every day life and has a particular fascination for horse racing, cycling and dancing, where he captures the heart of a moment on his canvas.
Originally from South Africa his practice is now based in the Ayrshire countryside. Garth will sometimes work on a project outside instead of the studio and has been known to stand in the snow with his easel to capture the true light and spirit of a place. Many of his dance pieces are painted from life in a dance studio. “I like to capture the essence of a scene using real life and photos to convey a story, a sense of place and movement."
