Barbara Davis

Barbara's paintings are created in her studio after much consideration and with reference to many sketchbooks containing memories and references of things that have captured her imagination.

Tracey Walder


Tracey Walder's artistic inspiration stems from her childhood spent on a farm in the Dorset Countryside. Her surroundings have provided her with a wealth of ideas that she has skilfully translated into her artwork. The result is a stunning body of work that reflects her deep connection to the natural world.

Caroline Tucker


In 2010 Caroline started up her own company ‘Caroline Tucker Designs’ back in her home town of Dorchester. She began selling a unique range of digital artworks for greetings cards, coasters, placemats, cushions and prints. The inspiration for her vibrant and quirky imagery came from a love of the countryside and beautiful coastline where she lives, combined with her passion for pattern and textiles.
