Anthony Hodges – Artist
Originally from the northern port of Whitby, Anthony Hodgson has lived in West Norwood, south London since 2002. As an artist, he works mostly in inks and pastels, producing Gothic, Religious and Figurative art. He is inspired by the conflicts within our existence: light, dark; life, death; imprisonment, freedom and the relationships between them. Anthony is also a musician and poet.

Limited edition digital prints
Mid-century graphic designer, art lovers and curious collectors who have lived and journeyed across four continents discovering visually fascinating objets d’art, craft, ephemera and tastes.
Our raison d’être is to ‘revive, share, inspire’ giving beautiful often ignored artifacts a new beginning.
This selection of limited edition prints is part of an on-going series of images influenced by obscure ‘street art’ from our travels, which have been digitally re-worked to capture the vibrance, texture and energy of those places.

Paintings – Mosaics – Workshops
Janet takes her inspiration from the natural world. Her abstract paintings are a reflection of this. Each one unique, they pulse to a rhythmic, intuitive and felt sense. She aims to cultivate this energy and spirit in her workshops and groups, where process and fun are more important than the finished object.
Original brightly coloured, hand painted images in gouache on paper in wooden frame. Mosaic tiles decorated with buttons, beads and various colourful, interesting bits and pieces.
Other works include A4 framed prints of charcoal, ink, pastel drawings and photos. As well as producing her own work Janet is an artist/therapist supporting individuals and groups to find their creativity using a variety of media and techniques.
