RobertCox2
Robert Cox has been a freelance graphic designer/ illustrator for 35 years.

‘I am now developing a life long interest in wood sculpture embracing the study of form inspired by nature. Calling on design skills and a lifetime of experience in the use of traditional carving tools, I take my inspiration from the natural world, especially the unique and unusual world of plants and flowers. My work has taken me on an evolving journey, taking in beautifully carved wood sculpture for public and private collections, large public works and traditionally carved signage.’

Ros Wise is based in Gloucestershire and began to paint seriously in 1980. ‘My main inspiration is the Natural World. I began by studying single plants and flower heads in detail and traced their change and evolution through the seasonal year. At the moment I am painting less botanically and painting plants where they naturally grow whether in gardens or wild spaces.’
