For only a few days, Alison, Peter & John’s work will be filling up the gallery showcasing Alison’s landscape work, Peter’s naive painting style & John’s playful illustrations.
Since 2009, Peter has been a full-time professional after being tutored in oil painting techniques by a professional oil painter in evening classes.
A lot of his work has come from commissions, with his paintings selling worldwide and his artworks can be found in galleries across the UK.
Peter is a member of the West Sussex Art Society, and in May 2021 he moved to his studio at Colonnade House.
Alison is a contemporary landscape artist working primarily in acrylics on canvas. She aims to capture intense light and atmosphere in her work – particularly glowing horizons, wild skies and seas and receding hills. Her intention is to create an emotional response to landscape and successfully negotiate the delicate balance between representation and abstraction.
Alison studied fine art at Exeter Art College and now devotes her time to painting in her studio and sketching in the landscape. She has exhibited successfully in many UK regional galleries. She shows at the Affordable Art Fairs both in London and internationally with the Linda Blackstone Gallery and is represented by galleries in Yorkshire, Wales and the Midlands.
John Bond (AKA iamjohnbond) is an illustrator, author and artist. Originally hailing from a farm in the Cotswolds he went on to study a degree in Illustration at Kingston University. He now lives and works here in Worthing.
With a background in animation and digital media, John spent 7 years working at an award winning creative agency – designing and directing a multitude of projects across broadcast, digital, and interactive platforms. Now working as an independent illustrator and artist, he balances commercial jobs with self initiated projects alongside running his online print store. John’s work has been exhibited in galleries worldwide and he has spoken at industry events such as Pictoplasma, Glug and Pecha Kucha.
His debut picture book, ‘Mini Rabbit Not Lost’ published by HarperCollins, was nominated for best picture book in the 2019 Waterstones Book Prize. His second book ‘Mini Rabbit Must Help’ was published in June 2020.
