Joining a small art group gave me the courage to pick up my pencils and paintbrushes after a long absence, I enjoy drawing with fine pens and painting in watercolour and the feeling of putting acrylic paint onto canvas. I paint buildings, plants or animals.

A trainee counsellor at Willows, I particularly love nature and buildings, finding inspiration everywhere. I tend to be drawn to colour and water and I hope to create atmospheric work in a variety of mediums.

Caroline Day’s compositions are rooted in a reverence for places and nature, during the ever changing seasons.  Much of Caroline’s inspiration and passion stems from painting within Swindon’s ‘little gem’; the Old Town Gardens.
As well as the Old Town Gardens, which was placed on the Register of Parks and Gardens as a Grade II site, Caroline’s designs include a number of other images produced exclusively for English Heritage. With extreme texture and often brighter than life colours, Caroline’s paintings capture an intense energy which is both positive and uplifting.  Copies of Caroline's originals can be purchased from the Swindon Museum & Art Gallery.

Noriko uses the ancient technique of hand coiling to build her pots, making each one unique. Her work ranges from the domestic and functional such as ovenware to figurative pieces that are often full of her sense of fun. Decoration is similarly varied, moving between simple 'earth' tone glazes and patterns that are intricate and colourful.
