Debbie Dunbar

Debbie Dunbar is a painter specialising in oils. She graduated from University with a degree in Graphic Design and Illustration in 1983 and has worked in the arts ever since. She exhibits nationally, and has work in collections worldwide. She was promoted to Full Membership of the Society of Equestrian Artists in 2015 and is a Friend Member of the Royal Institute of Oil Painters (ROI). Her use of vibrant oil paint as her chosen medium and an obsession with portraying light, and how it affects both the mood and the narrative of the subject is her speciality. She exhibits nationally, and has work in collections worldwide. "As a painter I am finding it more and more important to me to work from life whenever I can. Like most artists practicing today I do make good use of reference photos for my studio pieces, but I still make preparatory sketches from life wherever possible. No matter how good a photographic image is it still misses those subtleties of tone and colour and the changing light that you are aware of when working directly from life."

Valerie Price West

Clay as a material to work with has always been a huge fascination to Valerie. To transform a natural material that is under our feet, in to 3D sculptural or usable objects influenced her decision to take the leap and enrolled on a full time degree course in ceramics and 3D at Carmarthen School of Creative Arts as a mature student. In 2012 she graduated with a 1st Degree (Hons). “Inspiration for my pieces is always very personnel and relates to my own experiences be it rowing Celtic long boats out at sea or riding my horses competitively. All my work tries to portray a special relationship that can be built working together as a team, the inner soul and strength of how far we can push ourselves and what we are able to endure physically and mentally”.
