Sarah J Ormrod Biography
"From the age of 10, I have worked almost exclusively in oils, and with a great love of the sea and nature, is drawn to water for my subject matter. Most of my recent paintings are of the seashore, but others take riverbanks, woodland and canals as their subject matter. My focus is on the effects of light and the interplay of colour. I’ve participated in Open Studios at Madingley Hall, and had mixed solo shows at Selwyn College, Julia Heffer’s Gallery, Wysing Arts and Michaelhouse."
Lizzie Madder Biography
"I love to paint the rivers and flooded meadows of the Fens and work mainly in watercolours. I studied at Loughborough College of Art (fashion design) and then later trained in botanical art, becoming a member of the Leicestershire Society of Botanical Artists. In 2002, I moved to Cambridgeshire, and was completely smitten by the landscape and the breath-taking skies of the Fens. Recent exhibitions of my work have been shown at Westminster College, The Old Fire Engine, Ely, Madingley Hall and Cambridge Open Art."
