Paulo Guti

Media: Ply on Paper

Paulo is one of those individual visual artists that spends most of his time trying 
to figure out what, how & when the next story should be created. His inspiration is driven by moments, techniques, emotions and situations that help create a narrative. A simple storyteller that uses monochromatic compositions to create emotions.

Michael Scanu

Media: Digital Print

I have always searched for meaning and inspiration in nature and in the comings and goings of my surroundings. Digital design has allowed me to expand into new areas of creative scope, one which blends the soul with the machine.Whether it be through words, paint, pen, ink, paper, screen or lens, the creative outcome evokes a journey. 

Jacs Wallace

Media: Illustration

Simple, friendly, dreamlike and inspiring are probably the best words to describe Jacs creations. Through the usage of line, ink and an incredible perception of the world, her illustrations manifest curiosity with familiar structures built on unstably engineered foundations.

Chloé Darmigny

Media: Acylic on Canvas

With a clever combination of textures, patterns and warm tones, French born 
artist Chloé Darmigny brings great depth to her artworks. Her natural attraction 
to the ‘bohemian’ world is represented throughout. Chloé uses subtle symbols 
to express mystical ideas, art is her poetic way to communicate.

Olivia Jones

Media: Charcoal on paper 

 Olivia’s core artistic expression and she revels in being able to put tool to paper wherever she is to bring her art to life. Learning from a young age and through 
years of experimenting, she especially grew to love the art forms of charcoal and watercolour and ignites intrigue in people with the detailed, life-like and delicate construction of her practice.


Media: Ink on paper 

Sometimes there’s an artist, he fits in there somewhere amongst the eccentric ones, whose works are fuelled rampage interpretations of the mundane with lots of irrational thinking. All this blended with some unusual English and an 80’s mentality. Sometimes there’s an artist… and your shall purchase his works.

Liz Finnigan

Media: Digital on Via Felt  

Inspired by her surroundings and typically begins in a local cafe or perched on the rocks by the sea. She has a knack for conveying balance and serenity, paired with a casual and approachable style. Liz also has an intuitive eye for placement and negative space - her work is elegant, classic and minimalist, with every line and object considered and essential.

Goya Torres
