Artist based in London and Folkestone working in a variety of media, the most common being lens-based accompanied by text, through which he tells stories.
Luke is a visual artist who explores conceptual visual arrangements. His practice is formulated by the concept of formal decision-making of objects and imagery. He has recently been expanding his entrepreneurial skills through his involvement with Threads and the Student Makers Markets. Check out his beautiful hand bound books under the name of Cramped Hand.
Artist, with a predilection for drawing and painting his everyday environment.
Philippa’s current work stems from a continuous exploration and development into camera-less film making. She uses techniques formed during printmaking and exposure. Her focus has always centered around the process of making. Philippa started Threads, a DIY Gallery in January 2015 since then has curated video art screenings, pop-up exhibitions and artist critiques.
Jeni’s work is concerned with the nature of abstraction now; the tension between the recognisable and the abstract, gesture and absence, digital image and painting.
Martin has been involved in the performing arts for the over twenty years both as an actor and a musician, playing lead roles in the West End as well as TV, film and Fringe appearances. In that time he has gained experience and a working knowledge, of the performing arts industry and it’s requirements. He has gained experience of directing both musicals and plays in the UK and New York, working with professionals and amateur actors. For the last 8 years he has focused on singing teaching. His students have gone on to gain college places and some onto perform in the West End. He believes everyone has a voice…they just have to find it…. He is happy to help anyone try!
