New House Art Space

New House Art Space is home to 20 artist studios and the Davies Gilder Gallery. During SAOS there will be a rich variety of work on show and for sale. Some of our resident artists and their practices include:

Jane Hawkins: 
Jane is primarily a painter using collage & mixed media with the occasional use of papier mache. Her series of work entitled HOST explores mankind’s intervention within our planet. The compositions suggest Mother Nature is becoming a moving mass, a hybrid with a separate life… and that she is beginning to fight back.

Catherine Guest: 
Catherine is a mixed media artist and also a mature student at The University of the Creative Arts. Her current work focuses on people and place. She is working with Gouache and acrylic on paper or board. She likes to use elements of collage in her work either in the form of found items or fine papers that she creates herself and uses as part of the work. She is fascinated by stories, community and history and the papers are sourced or created to compliment the piece and add depth and interest.

Nerrisa Pratt:
Nerrisa is a true multi-hyphenate, she creates content for brands such as Hobbycraft and LoveCrafts as well as running her own product based business where she sells craft kits and her debut book, ‘Bargello’, by Nerrisa Pratt. However, her ‘day job’ is running Untld Project, a PR, Marketing and social media agency that supports creative, crafty and independent brands. Untld Project believes that everyone should have access to marketing and PR services regardless of budget and have a range of scalable packages to make running a small business easier.

Charlotte Corden:
Charlotte is an illustrator and artist, with a longing to depict the good, true, and beautiful elements of life that she sees in the world around her. She has a background in anthropology, which naturally centres her work on the careful study of the places and cultures in which she finds herself, and often leads her to visualise deep questions, such as what it is to be human.
Day to day, she creates both digital illustrations and oil paintings. She makes children’s books, illustrations for editorials and magazines, and has been known to dabble in a bit of animation. She recently had a book published called Light in Dark Times, which highlights the injustices that erupt from broken political systems, and encourages the reader to dare to dream of a better future for our world.

Jane Upward:
Jane is an intuitive semi abstract artist, expressing the elemental spaces she interacts with through mixed paint media. She is also studying art therapy and shamanism. Jane has recently returned to the UK after living in Denmark for 5 years. Living by the sea, being a year round sea swimmer was wonderful for the self proclaimed ’Thalassophile’ (Lover of the sea). It is Jane’s kinaesthetic experiences of being immersed in the sea that continue to inspire her paintings.

Helen Bowie:
Helen Bowie is an artist and surface pattern designer based in Surrey, England. Whilst working in the Corporate world for many years, she experimented with a variety of creative techniques then left that world behind to study interior design and train as a surface pattern designer.
She creates unique and original artwork inspired by the natural world. Her work ranges from classical through to modern, bold, and colourful and is created using a range of techniques including digital, collage, ink, acrylics, watercolour and printmaking.

While travelling in South Africa she helped local businesses promote themselves through mural and sign painting. Zooming around on a moped with various tins of paint packed in a basket.
Emily is fascinated by the history of typography and how events and needs have shaped the written word throughout the world, how heavily we are influenced by different typefaces and passionate about adding more colour and creativity into everyday life.
