About The Artwork

A mandala is a spiritual and symbolic pattern which represents the cosmos and infinite and can be used for meditation. For me a mandala represents peace and calmness, and the whole process of putting the piece together was calm and happy. I poured all that calmness and happiness into it as I made it. The meditative process of the bead weaving is perfect for this piece. The beads glisten and change when viewed from different directions .I made it to reflect the peaceful living in the outdoors of the Lake District amongst the mountains. This mandala is in the form of the circle inside the square with a centre point drawing you in and I've used my favourite Mondrian primary colours. I hope you love it as much as I do, and it reflects the beauty of the universe back at you. Made with Japanese Miyuki beads. The beads are woven separately and laid over an acrylic painted canvas. The bead weaving here is a technical challenge to create the open square form. These are NOT loom woven but hand woven. It is the first in a series. See more about the artwork here:

We are two artists that just happen to be husband and wife and we work both collaboratively and in isolation. When we collaborate, we genuinely collaborate, sometimes to the extent that we can be working on the same piece at the same time. And we are very different artists and that fusion is very creative and produces exciting images. Lucy loves to stimulate the senses. Colour and texture are particularly important. Lucy likes colours that you begin to imagine you can smell or taste. At times it’s hedonistic, euphoric and trance-like. Lucy uses the finest materials, to create colour and texture. By using Japanese glass beads, sometimes gold and silver, she creates paths representing paths through life, challenges, decisions, feelings, concepts. Sometimes Lucy can be more literal, but that is relative. It may mean that pieces are less abstract and more graphic in form. Lucy’s art is about the human condition and what brings it joy. Touching the human spirit. Roy is driven by story telling and communication. Roy loves an artistic narrative, and the more emotive you can create the story,  the better a picture works. Roy thinks that too many artists worry about being serious all the time and thinks its fine to be witty. Roy is working to develop a signature style which is no signature style, just a vehicle for the message to be communicated: It must be me because it doesn't quite look like anything else! Roy is knowingly ambiguous, and there is always an undercurrent in competition to the main theme. A tension. Roy is driven by feminist issues, environmental issues and futurism. All of these are not some artistic conceit or fancy, but borne by experience. Roy has seen the issues and challenges first hand and tried to sort them in the real world. Roy wants you to look at a picture and think that 'means something to me'.
