Four Dorset Artists come together to further blur the line that too often divides Craft and Fine Art. All respond to the natural environment in different ways …

Karren Burkett is a painter who explores and records the vibrant colours in her local landscape on a variety of scales, using oils, water colours and pastels.

Colleen Du Pon is an artist blacksmith creating a full range of products from architectural accessories such as gates and canopies to garden and table sculpture.

Amanda House is a textile artist whose creative approach to manipulating fabrics and mixed media is applied to a range of two and three dimensional artefacts.

Andrea Jenkins draws and paints the power of elements and responds to the minutiae of nature, be it the sea, pebbles or inland meadows and hedgerows.
