from Newcastle is a trained silversmith. He turned his talent to direct metal sculpting and teaches design students at Northumbria University. His art work reflects his love of replicating natural forms in metal.
Derek recently learned blacksmithing so he could create the specialist hammers and punches needed to make his pieces from sheet metal.
His work ranges from small delicate flowers to life-size animal heads like this water buffalo swimming in water. Derek regularly makes commission pieces for individuals and businesses.
was born in Switzerland, but now lives and works in Wallsend. She takes much of her inspiration from architecture and landscapes here in the North East.
Her influences and passion for drawing developed as she grew up in Europe. She later combined these influences and passions with digital skills to produce her signature collages.
Suzanne now also combines her artwork, with her love for interior design and textiles. She incorporates her designs and colour combinations on many different objects and fabrics.
She always uses quirky colour schemes across her work, staying ahead of trends and fashion.
Suzanne also undertakes commission work.
Sarah Glover Makepeace
is a self-taught artist, from Burnopfield. She specialises in wildlife pencil drawings, taking inspiration from the countryside around her North East home.
Sarah is passionate about wildlife and animals. Through her art she now supports many animal charities, including The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. The Trust was set up to protect and conserve endangered animals in Kenya and around the world.
All of Sarah’s creations are given names, this one is Merlin the mad March hare. She also undertakes many commissions of real animals too.
Until recently drawing was just a hobby for Sarah, but after realising her potential she decided to set up as a full-time artist.
