Peter Drake 

In addition to drawing and painting Peter Drake creates short videos of his quick-draw portraits of popular personalities.  His technique involves drawing with his left hand while videoing with his mobile phone using his right hand.

Maureen Morris

Printmaker and poet. 

"I like working with relief prints because I can print by hand and don't have to use a press - though I do use one sometimes!

I enjoy wood and letting the tools release the image - in the big cacti piece it was fun to involve the grain and the knots in the plank.
I often work directly onto the material, even when I'm making wood engravings - it keeps the image spontaneous.
The big cacti piece takes about half an hour to ink up and it can take another hour to bring the image through using a baren - it's a very meditative process.
I'm fascinated by cacti plants and have done the very small wood engraving of a group of cacti too , which was in the 1st turnaround."
