Paintings and Prints by artists Linda Clarke, Catherine Farr, Tony Smith and Emily Smith Polyblank
Catherine Farr studied painting at Wimbledon School of Art followed by a post grad at Goldsmiths College, London. Since leaving college she has worked as an artist and teacher in the UK and Europe. Her work is a personal response to her surroundings and reflects what is happening in her life through colour, light, and texture. Her work is held in public and private collections including Tate Britain and the British Library.Emily Smith Polyblank grew up on a small-holding with her artist parents: Tony Smith and Linda Clarke. They were always surrounded by animals which is the subject of Emily’s woodcuts. She has a deep understanding of animals’ physique which translates into her work. Emily studied at Farnham Art School. Linda Clarke studied at Medway College of Art aged 16, where she met and married Tony Smith. During the holidays she went hop picking (even with her 1st baby in a pram) and was intrigued by the hop cultivation process.
