For Filmmaker and Photographer Andre de Nervaux, Andre has always found happiness in nostalgia; capturing the beauty in mundane moments before they pass by. We speak about the inspiration behind his recent film ‘Phosphenes’ – a letter to his younger self; his dreams and visions in film and how his art practice affects his well-being. Andre also shares some some advice to those looking to break into film.
Glaswegian artist Rowan Rosie reveals themes of travel, vulnerability and femininity in her bright paintings as she surrenders to the creative process.

Rowan walks us through her process including how she tackles the challenge of overworking a piece; and shares how her art affects her well-being.
Eline combines contrasting disciplines in her art practise; merging the geometric constructs found in Maths and Physics with the organic, fluid movements found through painting. Her pieces centre around ‘Hu’ the ‘Flower of Life’ which symbolises unity and eternal creation. Eline talks us through how 'Hu' influences her art; the importance and necessity of music as she works; and her aims to create art more sustainably.
Jessica Matier's playful pieces explore our relationship with nature and society. They look at how we as adults exist in the world as we grow from our childhoods.
