6. Louise Craigie
After graduating from Manchester with a first class honours degree I always knew I would return to Suffolk, to pursue
a career in teaching. That is my current role, an art teacher and Director of the Arts & innovation faculty. However,
my passion to teach art lies within my desire to still create my own own and continue in my own creative practice.
Over the last twenty years I have worked as an artist and exhibited broadly around the Suffolk area in wonderful locations such as
Aldeburgh, Snape, Beccles, University of Suffolk waterfront, The Cut and many more. In the last five years I have been able to have
solo shows, create my own website, be selected for an prestigious exhibition to represent Suffolk Artists and started to sell internationally.

7. Baxy Boo Creations
Hi! I’m Sally and I am a Suffolk based acrylic fluid artist. I produce colourful abstract art, my love of music inspires my paintings
and each piece has a fitting song title. For commissions I’m always happy to start with a favourite or ‘special to you’ song.
I use high quality archival materials and mostly paint on canvas but have applied fluid art to many things! Curing takes up to 28 days and then several layers of archival varnish or resin are applied make the colours pop! Most of my pieces are professionally framed in high quality bespoke ‘floating’ box frames that really show off the paintings to their best potential. Handmade and unique, each painting comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.
During lockdown I have been doing my day job from home…saving 2 hours travel per day, so when my working day was over I just walked outside to my studio to create! I found that my creativity flowed during lockdown and I had so many ideas. I also paint mandalas on rocks, tealight holders – this is extremely therapeutic and can become quite addictive. The rocks and votives are selling as quickly as I can make them at the moment!
Overall lockdown has been a very positive experience for me and my art – I’ve loved it!

8a. Philip Jowett
My commitment to the visual arts is reinforced by regularly visiting Florence. I joined Peninsula Art Group several years ago to develop
my curiosity in the creative process. I use pen & ink, pencil and acrylics. My dance series in pen & ink explores movement and the energy
of the dancers. I am currently exploring the natural and physical world in pen & ink, acrylics on board and pencil on cartridge paper.
8b. Liz Carter
My work predominantly reflects nature through land and seascapes. Inspiration comes when I unexpectedly see something that to me
has a ‘wow’ factor and I know that it will be a mosaic design. While walking in all weathers I note and reflect on the vibrancy of the
wide open skies, the effect of trees and formations on the landscape, the ever-changing crops in the fields and the intense beauty and
colours of water, both flowing and frozen. I love to explore the visual world through the essence that is mosaic.
8c. Tessa Mussett
I owe my knowledge of anything connected to Artists, History of Art and the Theatre to my mother’s abundant enthusiasm.
Later I went a step further, studying Fine Art at Cheltenham and Canterbury. I use charcoal and in particular chalk/pastel Conte ‘A’ Paris sticks
for drawing – a wonderful traditional medium – and in so many colours! My choice of subject matter is easy: Suffolk buildings and landscape.
8d. Nick Carter
I attended Southend Art School followed by Loughborough College of Art & Design specialising in three dimensional design.
Currently my series of work investigates the spirit of movement; a) consequential travelling in time across the page,
rather like time lapse photography, b) viewing the rotational movement of a dancer in one position through time and
c) exploring the Suffolk and Brittany landscapes and sky in acrylics on canvas and pen & ink on textured paper.
9. Glass by Jackie
I’ve been making glass mirrors and mosaics for around 12 years, and have recently opened my own Etsy shop
where you can buy a selection of my work (well, those pieces I can actually bear to part with anyway!).
Recently I have introduced some super cute little trinket boxes to my range, and these come in all sorts
of shapes and sizes, and can be customised in the colour/s of your choice.
All the glass I use is the highest quality 3mm stained glass, all hand cut and mounted onto wood or MDF.
I am happy to take commissions, and have a huge range of different colours in stock, so if you have a
specific idea or colour scheme, just message me with your requirements and we’ll take it from there!

10d. Ken Cuthbert

11. Revd. Susan D. Foster
Revd. Susan D. Foster studied Visual Art at Winchester School of Art. Following 25 years working with British Forces
travelling the world (Hong Kong, Cyprus, Germany, Falkland Islands and Salisbury Plain!) Susan trained for the Priesthood at the
College of the Resurrection alongside the Monks in Mirfield. It was during her theological studies with The Cambridge
Theological Federation that Susan began a fascination with religious icons writing several papers on ‘Pray and Writing Icons’.
Icons are meant for liturgical settings, in which they help to lift worshippers out of their ordinary lives and into an experience of the new creation.
Image 1. The image of the Madonna and Christ is often called ’The Virgin of Tenderness’ or the ‘Virgin of Vladimir’.
The Christ Child nestles tenderly close to His mother, He gazes at her and is so closely linked to her that He embraces her fully.
His left hand gently touches her cheek. There are thousands of representations of the Vladimir icon. It is said that there is no
Orthodox Church, nor Orthodox home’s religious corner, without this image somewhere represented. This one is fully gilded in 23c gold,
Image 2. ‘Jesus Pantocrator’ in the Byzantine tradition. The face of Jesus is modelled with fine white highlights and
deep shadows and, despite the frontally, strict symmetry is carefully avoided in the drawing of hair, nose and beard.
