Stour Valley Studios

Thursday 20 - Wednesday 26 April

Jane Ford studied printing and graphic design; she is also a mosaic artist. Her interests are in abstract art and in the mixing of mediums applied to painted tiles, printing, painting and collage. The ‘Stamp Collection’ is her latest collection; small, intimate and colourful prints, built around national stamps. Suitable for both private and commercial applications. Each year she takes four weekend Mosaic Studio Workshops.

Moira Fraser Steele has a Masters degree in History of Art & Design and is a graduate of the Royal College of Art. She was a Director of the Design Council for seven years. Her training and background means that she approaches her work graphically with particular focus on shape and form.  In 2013 she received the President’s Award given by the Royal Watercolour Society and in 2017 the Tyndall Award also from the Royal Watercolour Society.

Rupert Brown was the creative director of a premier London advertising agency before becoming a freelance designer for clients in Europe and America, working, among others for Ford Motor Company, Kodak, The Observer Newspaper, Cotton Traders and British Telecom. He now divides his time between painting watercolours, often with marine subjects and acrylic still lifes on canvas, and designing
and editing large format illustrated books for various publishers.
