Mark’s lifelong love of the landscape and wildlife of North Norfolk continues to inspire new works. The wild beauty of the birds of the coast and marsh are the passionate source of inspiration for this collection. His knowledge and love of drawing and painting are evident in this skill of capturing the natural essence of his subjects with the minimum of fuss and line.
Tracey paints to capture the beauty of Creation along the North Norfolk coast, with its creeks, skies and expansive beaches. She finds that painting in an abstract style using mixed media, acrylics and oils will enables her paintings to reveal a deeper mystery. Capturing the fiery hues of a blazing sunset, the misty sea frets together with the clarity of light on a bright breezy day conveys an intense visual experience which speaks to Tracey's heart expressing the colour and thanksgiving she feels as an artist.
The paintings involve a pursuit of things that are indistinct, elusive and ever-changing. She strives for paintings with a liquid, viscous quality where ambiguities of surface and reflection and of depth and distance can combine to convey the merging of horizon, land, sea and sky. Lorraine has exhibited widely in London and East Anglia and was nominated in 2015 for the Norfolk Arts Award.
Will has been painting Norfolk landscapes during the last 20 years, while based in London and moved to North Norfolk four years ago. Having got a First Class BA Hons in Fine Art he moved to London in 1986 and has divided his time between working with artists and galleries, as well as on his own work. He has followed the work of influential Californian landscape painter Richard Diebenkorn. Will has exhibited his work with the Royal Society of British Artists at The Mall Gallery and The Millinery Works Gallery in London, as well as numerous group exhibitions.
Fiona is based in North Norfolk. Her paintings communicate the sense and atmosphere of the landscape. She captures the moments before a storm, sky and horizon melting into the sea, salt marshes and fields. Fiona paints on hand stretched calico and makes her own gesso, oil paints, dammar resins and varnishes using recipes dated to the old masters. She has exhibited throughout Europe and has paintings in the Sainsbury Centre (SCVA) Loans Collection and the Wallace Space Collection among others. Fiona’s work can be seen in The World of Interiors magazine.

Tor is a landscape artist based in Norfolk. She studied Fine Art Painting at Norwich School of Art. Her work is very much rooted in the English Landscape tradition. Tor is an artist who walks. Walkers can not help but be aware of the make up of the earth beneath their feet. Of the changing sounds, temperatures and light levels as they move through a landscape. They pass sheltered spots where tender plants flourish and others where trees are brutally sculpted by the prevailing wind A walker knows the real distance between here and there. Walking is the basic human act of belonging on, and experiencing this planet.

The ambiguity of names for Pandora's paintings do not represent actual seas but rather imagined universal ones. Pandora wants them to have an immersive quality and to evoke rather than describe the space. It is for the viewer to find their place within them, which could be a meditation or stimulation. The tension between the beauty and cruelty of the sea, of threat and solace is something she explores in these works.
Ann lives in North Norfolk, trained at the Byam Shaw School of Art, London. Living so near the sea has been a great attraction and Ann has spent many happy hours sitting in Morston mud, drawing the sea, the sky and boats. It is a fascinating and everlasting subject.
