It never ceases to amaze me how hospitable Bucks Open Studios artists are and how eager they are to talk about and share their work.  These are a great bunch!  In the main house is hostess Jo Hanrahan whose varied work is in oil, watercolour and acrylic.  Her focus is on texture.

At the back of the garden, we have Claire Burke.  Claire has been enjoying acrylic painting for the last few years following a local course, and uses small local events like this to exhibit work. She is often inspired by nature with dramatic or striking landscapes a current favourite – however its her quirky contemporary animal portraits that seem to get people talking! Certainly diverse in style and subject – see www.claireburke.artweb.com for more examples of her work.

Next to Claire, we have Jane Wilson. Jane paints directly onto vintage maps and book pages creating original, unique artworks. She uses Buckinghamshire and its surrounds for her inspiration this year. 2015 has been a busy year, exhibiting locally, in London and through an online gallery and her artworks have found homes in collections all over the world. For Bucks Open Jane will be showing both original paintings and some Limited Edition prints of popular artworks.

In the centre of the garden, we have Trevor Cromton, known in the Bucks Open Studio directory for his beautiful butterfly, but just look at these stunning wood carvings.  Drawing inspiration from a passion for the natural world. A selection of paintings, carvings and 3-dimensional outdoor sculpture. Materials including wood, metals and plastics.  Certainly worth the climb.
