Jennifer Anderson

Karol Turski

Philip Raskin

Jennifer was born in Glasgow and grew up just outside the city, in rural Stirlingshire. She attended Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art, Dundee, from which she graduated in 1997 with a first class honours degree in fine art painting at the age of 21.
Since then she has returned to Glasgow and continues to live and work in the city's West End. She has exhibited widely throughout the UK, and has also shown work internationally in New York, Singapore, Florida, Zurich, and Toronto.
During her career Jennifer has recieved a number of awards including the HSBC Investment Managment Award for artists under 35 at the Royal Society of Portrait Painters, and the David Cargill award at the Royal Glasgow Institute. She has been regularly selected for the BP Portrait Award and has also been invited to exhibit in the main collection at the National Portrait Gallery, London.

 

 

Born in 1950 in Luków (Poland); lives and works in Lódz
He graduated from PWSSP-State College of Fine Arts (now known as ASP- Academy of Fine Arts).
In the period 1970-1975, he studied at the Department of Graphic Techniques in the studios of painting of prof. Roman Artymowski, prof. Teresa Pagowska, prof. Juliusz Narzynski, and the studios of applied graphics of prof. Boguslaw Balicki and prof. Stanislaw Labecki.
Between 1977 and 1990, he spent a lot of time abroad where he presented his works at individual and collective exhibitions in Berlin, Cologne, Düsseldorf, Oslo and Toronto.
In the years 1994-1997, he also exhibited his paintings, drawings and prints in his own gallery in Lódz. Karol Turski collaborates with many galleries at home and abroad.
Applying various techniques (oil, acrylics, watercolour and dry pastel), he creates painting cycles which usually form an integrated whole.

Philip Raskin studied at the Glasgow School of Art but did not complete the course due to his father’s untimely passing. After spending many years in business (mostly as proprietor of The Inn on the Green restaurant in Glasgow) he eventually squared the circle and returned full time to his easel and brushes in 2003.
His career quickly blossomed and he is a noted exponent of capturing both the light and the very essence of his native Scotland, exploiting the qualities of acrylic paint (the medium of his choice) to their fullest extent on a single canvas, depicting almost exclusively sea, land and skyscapes.
He does not fill his compositions with gable end cottages and telegraph poles but prefers to create an unencumbered space which each viewer will see differently to claim as his or her particular private place for solitude and reflection.
Philip has been fortunate to enjoy commercial success and his work can be found in high street galleries throughout the length and breadth of the UK as well as in art galleries on board P&O and Cunard.
He exhibits regularly at major art fairs in London, Edinburgh, Hong Kong and Singapore and has steadily accrued a growing band of followers and collectors.
