Charlotte Godfrey Art – watercolour art
Surrey based Artist, specialising in watercolour pet portraits.
I love watercolour for its controlled chaos element, using its fluidity to create something beautiful and as an avid animal lover, the two elements found and complemented each other, expressing & celebrating the beauty in all animals and pets through brush strokes.
​Although I specialise in Watercolour, I also adventure with mixed media, adding acrylic or occasionally leaves & other organic materials to bring texture to my pieces with sense of three dimensional effect.

Cassia Mayos Ceramic Studio – figurative and functional ceramics
Mainly I make fantasy characters, Fairies, dragons and art dolls out of Earthenware Ceramic but as I think clay is an amazing medium that doesn’t allows me to create only characters so I make a variety of mugs, tea cups and little bowls all hand built, glazed and firing. My work’s characteristics remain as fantasy for my mugs, cups and bowls too sometimes carved or just painted character to it.

Ginger and Mint Artworks – animal paintings on reclaimed slate
With a Welsh father and Cornish husband I have spent a lot of time around slate mines! After a while I got in contact with some and asked if it was possible to bulk buy their waste slate. I have found I am able to put these to good use by painting animals on them and like to combine my love of animals with the use of natural material that would otherwise be cast aside.

I am happy to take commissions both large and small.
