Kate Winskill

Kate rediscovered art in her middle years, spending five years exploring fine art, printing and textile design at Kingston university and University of West London.

Her work draws upon her collections of photography, drawings and ephemera collated over years of travel and observation. Her paintings feature vibrant colour and rapid execution with a sense of energy flowing throughout the work. Figure and portraits are her chosen subjects in paint , whilst her contemporary limited edition prints feature photography and digital imagery. These focus on urban architecture and the material fabric of the modern city.

London born and bred, the city and the River Thames features heavily in her work and in particular her 1978 series Featuring the iconic Battersea Power Station.

Raph Thomas

Raph is a young painter working in West London. He produces colourful, quirky images of animals which offer pops of vibrant colour to lift the spirits. Featuring endangered species such as elephant, tigers, rhino and leopards, as well as domestic animals. Raph’s work encapsulates the magic of wildlife with a touch of eccentricity and humour.

Home Art Viewings

If you like the originals you see on our website but can’t make up your mind, we do home viewings if you live within 45 minutes of Kingston ! You tell us which pieces you like , we load the van up , bring work so you can see it in your own space while we hang around locally in a socially distanced fashion! If you like something you buy it, otherwise we take it away again . If you like several pieces don’t be afraid to haggle. As artists we want our artists on your walls do we can make more work !
