Carol Saunderson

Carol Saunderson grew up in East Anglia and trained at Cambridge College of Art and Loughborough University and has been painting professionally for 20 years. Carol’s abstract landscape paintings result from memory, imagination and the rural environment in which she lives.  Her work captures the sensations and emotions of being in the landscape.  She loves colour and the way it interacts and creates a mood.  Carol strives to be positive, vibrant and playful in her painting. Her work is informed by her love of mid-20th century painting and design, especially by artists such as Ivon Hitchens and by contemporary colourists such as Barbara Rae.

In 2013, Carol’s painting, “The Bright Field”, was shortlisted for the Adrian Henri “Poetry in Art Prize”.

You can find her work at galleries around the UK and she undertakes private commissions.  John Lewis have sold her prints and Green Pebble have featured her work in their greeting cards.

Tree Portraits -

Two artists working together to create a series of etchings of native tree species printed on to paper made from the trees own leaves.  The leaves are collected and after a prolonged process of soaking and boiling delicate sheets of paper are created using only the natural constituents of the leaves to bind them together.  Whilst the paper is still damp the etched image is printed onto the leaves from a steel plate using a traditional etching press. 

Janet French has a BA (Hons) Art & Design – Fine Art at Colchester School of Art & Design and. Emma has an MA in Printmaking from the Cambridge School of Art .  Until recently Emma and Janet jointly chaired Gainsborough’s House Printmakers.
