Sarah Jane Bellwood

Ann was born in Gourock, Renfrewshire in 1941. She attended evening classes at Glasgow School of Art while still at school in the 1950s.
She married in Switzerland and lived there for 10 years, returning to Scotland in 1971. She then resumed her art studies and graduated from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art in 1985.
Ann is an elected member or the ROYAL SCOTTISH SOCIETY OF PAINTERS IN WATERCOLOUR 2001, ABERDEEN ARTIST SOCIETY in 2003 and ROYAL WATERCOLOUR SOCIETY in 2007. Her work is in public and private collections worldwide.

She is mostly influenced by the landscape around her and its history. She draws upon her childhood spent growing up beside the seaside source of inspiration, and today summer visits to the coast still bring back the excitement of land beside the sea. Ann currently lives in Aberuthven, Perthshire, where winter walks and the discoveries made off the beaten track inspired this current body of work.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

John Bell was born in Ayr, in 1968 and was brought up in Fife. He painted from a young age but chose to pursue a career in Architecture, graduating from The Mackintosh School of Architecture in Glasgow in 1993. He has worked as an architect since then but has continued to paint and exhibit work having undergone further study at Glasgow School of Art.

John paints landscapes and seascapes around Scotland, often alng the Ayrshire coast near his home in Troon and the coast of Fife. Whether he is painting a street or a harbour or an expansive shoreline, his carefully composed oil paintings are always atmospheric. He is interested in the extremes of light and colour in the Scottish landscape but his colours are often subtle, reflecting the coolness of the northern light. He is interested in the influence of the constantly changing weather, which can transform the mood in a moment. The sky often dominates his paintings and he uses bold brushwork to express the form and movement of cloud.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sarah Jane Bellwood is an artist living and working in Lancaster, in the North West of England.

She gained a first class degree from St Martins College in Lancaster where she went on to teach painting and life drawing. She has exhibited widely and was awarded the North of England prize in both the 2014 National Open Art Competition at Somerset House and the 2017 Discerning Eye Exhibition at the Mall Galleries, London.

Sarah is predominantly interested in the wildlife inhabiting and sustained by hedgerows. She looks at pollinating insects and the role they have in human sustenance and regularly donates from painting sales to the British Bumblebee Conservation Trust.

She uses watercolour and acrylics to make carefully observed paintings of insects and birds, feathers and eggs. She looks at objects of human detritus, man made articles made with equal care and attention to the objects found in nature. These are laid out for inspection and painted in meticulous detail.

Her paintings hang in both private and public collections
