Full circle: Eline Martherus

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.

Well-being: Yoga and Art with Kate Hiley

Well-being: Yoga and Art with Kate Hiley

Artist and Yoga Teacher Kate Hiley opens up about how yoga has impacted on her life and how it proceeds to influence her creative process. As you will discover, yoga is more than movement; it is a way of being. It shows up in the lighter moments and in the dark ones; it provides a healing tool, teaching us to lean into pain and discomfort in order to grow and be present. Some could say, it is the ideal companion to creativity, encouraging artists of all kinds to trust the process.

Art as therapy: Rachel Camilleri

Art as therapy: Rachel Camilleri

Rachel Camilleri works intuitively to capture the emotions felt in everyday life. She takes inspiration from what is around her, from music and street art to the architecture found in her home town of Manchester. She plays with the emotional qualities of colour, applying paint freely, with each movement dictating her next step. Art is Rachel's form of therapy, helping her to release and process emotion.

Little Worlds: Charlotte Keates

Charlotte Keates invites us to step into her detailed, idyllic interiors and calming architectural scenes. Here, the viewer can choose to occupy the space themselves, from the inside looking out or from the outside looking in – like a scene in a movie. Charlotte’s work is inspired by travels around the world, and seeks to explore the ergonomics of a space and how humans act and react to architectural spaces –making you want to jump in, explore and relax.
