Graham Calderbank
Graham Calderbank Top
Graham always had a keen interest in art, but in the 70’s with no encouragement to pursue a career in art, he forged a more lucrative career for himself in the motor trade.
However, at the ripe old age of thirty eight, after returning from a memorable Rolling Stones concert in Las Vegas, he felt the need to capture the moment and finally decided to follow his passion for art, painting famous iconic figures…….…..the rest is history! 
He has painted full time for the past fifteen years and sold work from the highlands of Scotland to Hong Kong
Phil McGinniss
Phil McGinniss Top
Art Foundation in hand, I set sail from St. Helens’ Gamble Institute and gained my HGV licence, because I could! I rattled around a bit and then did Fine Art Printmaking in Stoke on Trent. Undeterred, I eventually found work as a Graphic Artist.
Then I ‘fell over’ and a lot of things became out of reach! However, I did manage to grab a corner of the tablecloth and pull down a future for my own artwork…………pencil, gouache, oils and acrylics. I’ve never looked back since!  Commissions welcome!
Gary McNamara

After 2 years he felt that illustration was for him so he took a job as a in house illustrator for Image Software, who were a computer games company. Here, he produced many game covers. An opportunity arose for him, to become a freelance illustrator, working for some of the biggest advertising agencies in the country. Over the next 8 years, he slowly moved away from advertising and started illustrating children's books and game box covers for the largest publishers all over the world, Working mainly on licensed characters from Disney, Thomas the Tank Engine, Noddy, and meny more. Fine Art has always been a passion of his, and after experimenting with different styles and subjects, he found that landscapes are were he can really express himself and show his passion through his paintings.

Kath Collier
Kath Collier Top
Kath is a self taught artist who has drawn and painted all her life. The medium of her choice is pastel and her preferred subjects are animals and people……..‘anything with a face’.
Her love of animals has taken her into the realms of wild life painting and it has become something of a passion. She regards it as the greatest challenge to capture the unique expression and character of each subject. This however, does not debar other subject matter, and she has painted commissions as diverse as old trains and oriental landscapes.
Kath’s other interests include writing both, poetry and prose and she has been fortunate to have achieved success in both.
All proceeds from the sale of her work go to charities which take medical and much needed surgery to parts of the world where these things which we take so much for granted are just not available.
