Tucked away within Stamford Arts Centre we have four artists studios housing our 'Artists in Residence'.
Their work is on display on the walls in the Arts Centre front coffee shop area.
You can discover more about their work, their history and their future events, exhibitions and projects by clicking on their names above.
In my teaching I encourage students to seek within themselves to find what they want to say in their art and to take risks when painting, in order to express themselves.
My inspiration comes from my visits to Penwith in Cornwall, a magical land encircled by seas. It is littered with the detritus of long ago, from Bronze Age cromlechs and Celtic crosses to the ruined engine houses of its abandoned tin mines.
The moors are a pagan world of standing stones and sweeps of bracken crowned by granite cairns and above the cliffs, a prehistoric landscape of small, misshapen fields, cattle pastures held fast since the Iron Age in a web of granite hedgebanks.
My colours, intensified by the dazzling Atlantic light, are the gorse and the heather, sea and sky, the strident greens and yellows and orange-gold of lichens on granite and a multitude of greys.
My imagery comes from the stones. I am excited whenever I come across a menhir or quoit, stone circle, barrow or carn. Most recently I have visited a fogou, in the courtyard house settlement of Carn Euny. The fogou, constructed around 500 BC, is invisible from above ground. A low stone lined passage leads to a remarkable circular corbelled room, more than two metres high and four metres across.
My paintings are recreations of these memories.
Jane Hindmarch, visual artist; studied Drawing, Painting and Printmaking at Edinburgh College of Art and Montpellier EcoleDesBeaux Arts to postgraduate level. She has since exhibited and taught widely nationally and internationally and has been based at Stamford Arts Centre since 2006.
Jane recently co-founded“#Kombisketchtour”.
#Kombisketchtour is a mobile art studio. Jane and fellow artist Maxine Greer explore the Stamford and Rutlandarea in an artistic road trip in a VW campervan. Making regular pit-stops they draw and sketch to capture the seasons. Have you spotted them on your travels?
This artistic collaboration brings you a celebration of the natural world through the tradition of observational drawing and painting.
Join us to celebrate the process of observational drawing from nature.
Escape, tour and draw with #Kombisketchtour.
