The Artists

Ferelith Molteno

“Inspired by her surroundings when her family moved to Pakistan, Ferelith painted from a young age. For the past 20 years Ferelith and her husband, Tim, have travelled extensively in India where she finds the inspiration for her mixed media collages. She has exhibited in London, Hampshire, Scotland & India."

Mary Morgan Morton

“Studying textile design at Leeds, Mary went on to work for Dorma Textiles, allowing her to direct her creativity. Following this with a long and successful career as a probation officer in South London. Whilst working with young offenders encouraging them to enter art competitions, she entered herself and won. Having now retired, Mary now devotes as much time as possible to painting, taking part in Marlborough Open Studios, private commissions & working with other artists in Wiltshire.”

Gill Marriner-Edwards

“Gill has found inspiration in the idea of the layering of time, sometimes using collage, script and gold leaf to create abstracted forms. She is interested in Middle and Far Eastern Art and Design with its emphasis on tradition and historical references. Prominent themes in Gills works are beauty in decay and creating a visual history, the layering of years revealing and uncovering the influence of the human need to mark, adorn and often destroy that which has come before.”

Bryony Cox

“Following her studies at Falmouth University, Bryony travelled extensively throughout Asia. She spent considerable time in Sri Lanka capturing small moments among the busy hustle and bustle of everyday life. Bryony then moved on to India and her corresponding experiences led her to produce works bringing small but poignant moments to life. This can be seen especially in her "Unguarded Moment Series."

She urges viewers to appreciate that her portraits are off people just like us, however much of a mystery their everyday lives seem.

More recently, her work has featured at the Marlborough Open Studios."

Charles Rodwell

“Having travelled America, Australia and the Far East in the early 1980's equipped with only a backpack and a paint box, Charles found himself continually revisiting India and Sri Lanka. Charles creations are often large landscapes and colourful figure compositions, drawing clear inspiration from his travels. Working with other tutors including Patrick George, Jeffry Camp & Phillip Sutton he gained an insight into the painters world and has continued to paint professionally ever since.

His most recent exhibition, a celebration a career spanning 40 years, was at the Piers Feetham Gallery in Fulham, London.

He runs small painting courses from his Wiltshire studio in the summer & also exhibits at Marlborough Open Studios."

Prue Swindells

“Born in Calcutta, Prue grew up surrounded by the British Raj and to this day India is deeply intertwined within her.

Inspired by India, Prue says that the vibrant colours and the rather harsher eastern light are very important to her. These most recent paintings, part of the Suvarna series (meaning in Sanskrit golden... Su (beautiful) varna ( colour)
are works using not only brushes, but various tools and are painted using a layering technique.

Prue, having settled in Wiltshire, also takes part in Marlborough Open Studios."
