Bridget Baker

Exhibiting at the Widcombe CofE Junior School

bridgetbakerHaving studied Zoology early in my career, animals have always attracted me. After retirement, I started making small animals out of galvanised wire, which are then painted with enamel paints.  Each animal takes several hours to make. They are based on photos and drawings and the enjoyment of their creation comes from making them as realistic as possible with the minimum of lines. The most popular subjects are farm and domestic animals, particularly people’s pets but I also make a wide range of other mammals, many birds and also fish, frogs and reptiles. Commissions are undertaken from customers’ photos.

Catherine BealeCatherine Beale

Annie BeardsleyAnnie Beardsley

Exhibiting at The Ram

My work reflects my long-time interest in colour in jewellery as well as unusual and recycled/repurposed materials. My aim is to make creative wearable pieces at reasonable prices. Aluminium jewellery is hand-printed and dyed, and often combined with sterling silver. I can also re-make and redesign old silver, and have made a range of unusual silver spoons. Commissions welcome.

Exhibiting at Widcombe Social Club

This image shows a detail from a recent painting, which I intend to use as a ‘sketch’ and paint it again on a much larger scale. The ‘details’ in a painting often happen quite naturally and spontaneously, and on further scrutiny, usually from zooming in on a photograph of the piece, invite me to recreate them for their own sake.

Janet ColesJanet Coles

Exhibiting at Bewdley House

Janet’s paintings are vibrant and contemporary, using liquid acrylics and collage. The work is often inspired by the Cornish coast and includes flowers and fruits.

Caroline CrosslandCaroline Crossland

Exhibiting at Bewdley House

Caroline Crossland trained as a children’s book illustrator and is most at home working with pen & ink and watercolour, but more recently has rediscovered a love of linocut printing. Her subject matter is inspired by details from local architecture seen around Widcombe, particularly front doors! She also draws on traditional typography in other designs. Linocut prints have the advantage of being affordable, enabling visitors to the Art Trail to take home an inexpensive piece of original art.    


Anne Marie DerrickAnne Marie Derrick

Exhibiting at Widcombe Social Club

I studied Fine Art at the Art Academy in London, graduating in 2013. I paint in oils on a range of subjects, especially Still Life and flowers. I focus on the beauty of everyday objects in my Still Life paintings. When painting flowers, I try to capture their character such as the beauty and romance of roses or the joyful colours of spring blooms.

lizhughesLiz Hughes

Exhibiting at St Matthew’s

After creating the urban garden collection in 2015 I decided to broaden the subject matter of my work to include the Widcombe area. I find the history landscape and architecture of Widcombe offers a wide appeal to both local residents and visitors. I am aiming to capture scenes and moments from daily life in this part of Bath for you to all to enjoy.

Sarah McCurdieSarah McCurdie

Exhibiting at Widcombe Social Club

For this years art trail I’m working in collaboration with Jane Sargeant, which brings an exciting and refreshing approach to developing ideas, materials and processes. My designs are evolving with a strong sense of weathered textures and layers taking inspiration from water, boats and the natural landscape, a place where I feel very much at home! Working with another artist brings confidence to free up and become more experimental, so come and see us to find out how the collaboration has worked!

Kerrie McNeilKerrie McNeil

Exhibiting at Bewdley House

Kerrie’s screen prints are hand painted with each one often unique in colour and composition. Inspiration is taken from the local landscape and the coast. A more decorative approach is used in her brightly coloured designs of birds, flowers and hedgerows. She is a member of The Somerset Guild of Craftsmen.

Usha PearceUsha Pearce

Exhibiting at 28 The Tyning

I am an experimental abstract painter, often working with a series of ideas evoked by an observation, a news item or a gallery visit. Working in mixed media and combining techniques, colour and layering are used both in an additive and subtractive way to create a balance of form and space that allude to something representational or to a sensory experience.

Marilyn PhillipsMarilyn Phillips

Exhibiting at 28 The Tyning

I have a passion for capturing the character of my subjects and like to select an appropriate medium accordingly. Having always enjoyed drawing, I returned to regular art practice painting mainly botanical watercolours and occasional commissioned animal portraits.   Recently I have been enjoying creating portraits (both animal and human) and landscapes in soft pastels.


Plodge RobertsonPlodge

Exhibiting at Violet Bank Farm
My aim as an artist is to enable us to enjoy beautiful things every day – by wearing them!
I have been making jewellery since 2005, channelling a lifelong obsession with colour into creating one-off and bespoke pieces that combine vibrant glass and crystal with semi-precious stones and handmade beads. I prefer simple stringing techniques that allow the beads to speak for themselves, but a necklace can often contain fifty or more different types, and I often feel that I am ‘painting’ in beads to achieve the effects that I have in mind.
I also work to commission, matching and complementing special outfits.

Sue PorterSue Porter

Exhibiting at Widcombe Social Club

Janine RoperJanine Roper

Exhibiting at Action on Hearing Loss

I design and make blue and white ceramics, mainly vases and small decorative items. I screen print directly onto the damp clay using cobalt oxide ink, and most of my work is finished with a gold edge. My designs are inspired by traditional willow pattern, but also by my local surroundings both inside and outside of the home. The result is a traditional look with a contemporary twist.

Hannah SackettHannah Sackett

Jane SargeantJane Sargeant

Exhibiting at Widcombe Social Club

Walking, collecting and recording the natural environment are what inspires my work. The objects I find and draw and the textural marks I record within the landscape are the starting points for final pieces. I enjoy the process of experimenting with materials and the surprise outcomes resulting from mixing medias. I am collaborating with Sarah McCurdie for this year’s trail, it is exciting to respond to another artist’s methods of working and to share inspiration and materials. We’re enjoying the process and can’t wait to see the outcome!

Antonella SilesAntonella Scarpa-Isles

Exhibiting at St Matthew’s

Water, trees, sky, reflections and how they react with each other, these are the main elements of my work. The reassuring strength of rooted trees against the ever-changing pattern of clouds or their reflections in water have been a recurrent theme in my work for many years and still continue to fascinate and inspire me.

Mike ServiceMike Service

Exhibiting at Widcombe Social Club

I just like painting… landscapes, still life, muddy creeks and big skies… with brush and palette knife… mainly in oils but in watercolour and gouache too. Sometimes it’s hard work but generally I’m inspired and it’s great fun. I hope you enjoy some of my work.

I have exhibited at Galleries in Bath, London, Norfolk, Godalming, Lincoln and Edinburgh.

Edward SmithEdward Smith

Exhibiting at Widcombe Social Club

Inspired by his love of the South West coastline and time spent by the sea, Edward creates seascapes on reclaimed wooden boards and pieces of timber. His paintings are as much about the materials they are created on as the images themselves due to the depth and texture of the wood. Edward appreciates the way the elements weather old timber and paint and this is reflected in his work. Commissions taken.

Carol SymonCarol Symon

Exhibiting at St Matthew’s 

I find huge fun in exploring the infinite choice of media and mixing them in very different styles. Alongside this finding new, sometimes unlikely subjects particularly those which seem to have a story to tell, is very rewarding. Recently I’ve ventured into selling some of my images as cards and prints.

Emma TaylorEmma Taylor

Original work and framed prints for sale – you can also find my work for sale in various local shops and further afield in Tetbury, Cirencester, Broadway and Romsey.

Alistair TealeAlistair Teale

Exhibiting at 29 Prior Park Road

Alistair Teale produces intimate drawings in graphite, charcoal and chalk pastel. Building up and removing layers of media to reveal an image is a never-ending source of inspiration – the difficult balance between control and happy accident; in a sense the drawing becomes the record of time spent fashioning an image into shape.

Sarah TurrellSarah Turrell

Exhibiting at St Matthew’s

I make finely thrown stoneware pottery…. plates, mugs, vases, jugs and bowls. I love it if people use them day-to-day as they are durable and stand up well to use in the oven and dishwasher, but many people just like to display them. That’s ok too!
