Industrial landscape

Amanda Hillier - I’m a designer and illustrator based in the Ironbridge Gorge. I’m fascinated by industrial and architectural landscape and enjoy representing my surroundings in a powerful and dynamic way through the exploration of carving and printing lino.

My current work is inspired by iconic structures and includes a piece being exhibited at the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists (RBSA) as part of the Print Prize Exhibition.


Artist's Profile
Chris Williams

Chris draws inspiration, for much of her work, from the beautiful Shropshire landscape in the Bridgnorth area of the county.She studied Fine Art (BA Hons) in Newcastle and at the Laird School of Art. She paints using mainly oils, and captures the essence of  delightful country lanes and rural fields with her refreshing use of light and carefully observed detail. She draws on a daily basis to inform her work using graphite, charcoal and pastel.

Puppets created

Leona Thomas has been inspired to make these puppet characters using traditional papier mache methods of construction. She rekindled her fondness of puppets having recently come across puppets made by the artist Paul Klee.   He had made his to amuse his children grandchildren.  With their rawness and individuality Leona was struck by the fact that they seemed to break through preconceptions of what a puppet should be. She set about making these characters that can be used for a variety of story plots.  The puppets are on show at the VAN Street Gallery, Shrewsbury with further information about the inspiration behind them.
