Andrew Howe

I am an artist with a practice in painting, photography, walking and books exploring how people interact with places.  I encourage people to go slower and see the significance of the everyday.

My work has been shown work in solo and group exhibitions in Shropshire and across England.  I have curated exhibitions and completed commissions in social documentary.  I have significant experience in managing and directing challenging projects, as artist and as a civil engineer in environmental consultancy for many years.

I am a Shrewsbury-based artist and occasional poet working with collage, words, writing, paint, textiles and bookmaking.

I’ve taken part in group exhibitions in Shropshire and Scotland, and in 2014 was artist in residence at Wenlock Books. My work includes learning and community projects with a diverse range of groups. I have recently set up my own self-publishing press for books, prints and cards called Rock Rose Press. In my other work I am a yoga teacher and consider yoga an art form.

Jamila Walker 

I am a Shrewsbury based visual Artist, my practice uses found objects and demonstrates a fascination with minutiae of the everyday. My work uses implied self determined narratives and subversive humour.

I use digital manipulation and mixed media to enable me to construct visual worlds and characters.

In addition to being an exhibiting Artist, I am also involved in Community Arts; mainly Arts for Health and commissions. I have undertaken various artist residencies and had various creative roles within the heritage sector.

I live in North Shropshire and I work in both poetry and visual art.

I work in collage and mixed media montage. I like to mix found text with found visual imagery: anything as long as it is ‘found’! I make paper and foamboard pieces of varying sizes, sculptures, and cards.

My work is characterised by my own take on surrealism and by a certain dark humour, centred around themes of political engagement, wild nature, sex and storytelling.

My background is in therapeutic work in both adult and child mental health. I have found collage to be a valuable tool in engagement with groups and individuals. I am interested in taking this in a ‘community’ direction, both in terms of place and political context.
