Sue Jones was born in 1964 and grew up in Shropshire. She moved to Oxfordshire at 16 and fell in love with the County. Joining the Bicester Sculpture Group in 2009 is when she first took up sculpting. Sue has a small workshop located at her home, but chooses to work in a group and shared space at the George Muller Studio, finding this environment creative, stimulating and much more enjoyable. As a member of the Oxford Sculptors Group, she works with a number of materials to depict the ideas resulting in stunning pieces made of Bronze, Bronze Resin and Slate on polished oak or stone bases.
The artist explains:
“I had always been drawn to sculpture and would have to touch the pieces to connect and experience the texture and shapes. When I sculpt I draw my inspiration from all the natural shapes that I see on my walks that nature has designed already. From the patterns on the beach that are left by the sea, plant seed heads, ripples of water, texture of tree bark, shapes of leaves, it all feeds into my creative emotions.
I love my work to be touched and enjoy watching people read the shapes and textures by handling them, as I did when creating them. Each piece is a very personal expression." Sue Jones
The gallery has represented Sue for many years and she has exhibited at the Mall Galleries, London, Thompson's Gallery, London, Fresh Air Sculpture Show, Quennington, Oxford Art Week, Oxfordshire, Forge Gallery, Northants, Fairfax Gallery, Norfolk and the Ironstone Art Prize, Banbury.

Malcolm was elected as an Academician by the Royal West of England Academy (RWA) in 2016. He is also a member of the Royal Society of British Artists (RBA), the Royal Institute of Oil Painters (ROI) and the Bath Society of Artists.
Malcolm explains of his work; "I enjoy being in the landscape but it's the recollection of that experience which makes me a painter. Brief line drawings from observation are a starting point but the paintings are formed in the studio from memory and imagination."
"Ashman does not place figures within these paintings but as in all romantic visions it is the Landscape in relationship to the person that is pivotal to the work.” Ewan Robertson, Artist and Writer
Painting illustrated: Dark Sky | oil on panel | 76 x 76 cm. "May in the Cotswolds - a tapestry of green rolling hills and bright yellow fields of rapeseed in bloom."

How does one describe Richard Adam's paintings? Visionary, idiosyncratic, surreal or just plain hilarious? The answer is probably all of these. His humour and fertile imagination seem to know no bounds. Adams creates idylls and then adds quirky people that often float above the ground and seldom stand upright. His is a whimsical world of earthenware jugs full of cider, tractor rides, wild unabandoned partying and handstand competitions. He is a master of imagination, a champion of originality and a pastel artist of the highest calibre. He has an extraordinary ablity to connect with the viewer and his saucy sense of humour never fails to provoke a broad smile.
