I am an artist exploring and celebrating the seasons of the year, inspired by the Chiltern countryside, and the wild sea coasts of the West Country. My paintings are dynamic, bold, full of colour, energy and movement. My customers are international, and my paintings are to be found in homes and boardrooms in many parts of the world.
Sally says, “I think my most successful pieces evolve when I have been able to distil the power, colour, atmosphere and essence of a place or subject and to communicate the excitement I feel in a three-way dialogue between myself as the artist, the work itself and and the person looking at it.”Read More
Sally McIver is a local artist who takes inspiration from local landscapes as well the seaside (clearly the latter is not local!). She adopts a playful approach and is not shy in pushing the boundaries of colour. Working in a range of largely water-based media with occasional collage elements derived from objects found in the areas she loves to paint, she has exhibited in group and private shows both in France and the UK. Sally was delighted to be presented with the Pat Higgins Award at Beechwood Artists in Amersham in 2016 for her seascape “Azure”, inspired by the Breton coast.Read More
“The art of Brigid Marlin describes a visionary world of almost unlimited dimensions and self-sufficiency … The sense of a clearly realised poetic universe, in which every detail, however modest, was accorded equal attention, was what most gripped my imagination. Surrealism, which had played a large part in forming my own view of the world, had seemed to falter with the death or old age of its greatest practitioners — Max Ernst, Magritte, Dali and Delvaux — and here in Brigid Marlin was a painter who might be the first of the next generation. ….The surrealist dream of remaking the world and revealing its true nature seemed to live on in the work of this woman painter … in the best and most ambitious of her paintings we see clearly her dramatic and visionary remaking of the world, but this regeneration of life and space and spirit is present even in her smallest and most dome.”

I grew up in Berkhamsted and my art combines my two interests: Vintage Railway Posters and Local History (I am the chairman of the local history society). After going to Watford School of Art I went to Portsmouth Poly to study Fine Art, my current work couldn’t be more different as its commercial art. I find endless inspiration in Berkhamsted and the local area, and after spending 20 years working in a school am lucky to work from home in my studio.Read More
I’ve been drawing and painting since 2002, and producing and selling greetings cards from my art for about 10 years. I print my own cards using high-quality matte photo paper, which gives amazingly vibrant colours and a surface which is a pleasure to write on.
I love painting! I use a variety of media, including watercolour, acrylics (inks & paint), pen & ink, charcoal, pastel, collage and mixed media. I am inspired by the colours and shapes of nature: plants & flowers, wildlife, the sea; I also love to draw & paint boats, townscapes & seascapes. I prefer to draw & paint from life, but use my own photos as inspiration too. I also enjoy life drawing.
I have a passion for colour. I hope you will love my art too!
