Patricia but generally known as Pat Carlton was one of the artists work that was on the wall the first day we opened,
and we have seen her work improve over the years and I have enjoyed our journey together in the Art market, Pat has been
a top selling artist every year since we opened general in the top three places, I believe the first painting we sold for
her was a Palm Cockatoo an Australian bird. The last painting that went before the gallery was let to an estate agent
was most fittingly one of Pat Carlton’s this time a British Blackbird.

Mike works in the image industry, often painting daily, constantly producing good quality paintings with a good
understand of composition, and a love of old metal and stones, which is often found in his work. He was extremely
proud of winning the Bird section of the BBC wildlife artist of the year in 2010 with a Peregrine after a Lapwing
titled, Too Late.
Quality artwork, not the cheapest but as good as any you will find anywhere in the world and in reality relative
cheaper than a few years ago, the only reason not to buy is you cannot afford it or the style is not to your liking,
we only managed to exhibited his work after he got released from the Halcyon Gallery.
Mary Want was the first artist I came across that painted Birds when her husband run the school YOC club, she had stopped
painting bird when I had planned to open the gallery, but I am grateful for her putting Bird subjects back into her
portfolio of flowers and local scenes, she was also the President of her local art society. This painting of a
Robin was very successful for a charity publisher.

Andrew taught at a polytechnic and fully understands composition, light and can control his brush with great skill,
he is an artist that keeps pushing himself to improve and experimenting in different techniques, if he painted just
commercially, which I expect he never will, he would quickly achieve great success.
Sam a young talent, an artist that is still making her mark, watch her as she has the ability to be one of the big
names for the future, her impressionistic artwork captures the sense of the subject it portrays.
Jonathan was the first artist that I saw sell out of original paintings on his stall over a weekend event, with a
single exception that off a Chicken painting. His work is popular and with his low rate of output due to his
technique his demand is likely to stay high for the rest of his career, he also produces graphite pencil work to
a very high standard, which are easier to obtain. In resent years he has had a bi annual solo exhibition, other then
that most original coloured paintings have been commissions.
Simon produced the BASC stamp image in 2012, being a true countryman, he has the understand for that sporting image

material, but capturing the atmosphere and that mysterious moment of bird and light that autumn on the foreshore or a
flight pond can produce.
Richard is an illustrator and is developing his own looser style for his original painting work, as with most bird

health was restricting his painting. I was please to get an email in October 2013 saying he has a website and it

Ken Stroud was one of the founders of The Wildlife Art Society TWAS, and then went on to edit and published Wildscape

of wildlife especially African, but other subjects are just as likely from this talented artist.

Colin is one of them men who has his own mind; he has succeeded in making a living out of his art, allowing him to
stay indulged in his love of the countryside, first living in North Wales when I first meet him and now exploring
the beauty of Scotland and its wildlife as his base. Controlling his own destiny has caused him to self publish both
prints and Books, whilst he has made a name for himself by painting woodcock pictures with the woodcock’s pin feather.
He wishes to promote himself so we are unable to show any of his images and have not linked his website.
