Lisa Takahashi is a painter/printmaker whose figurative linocuts and oil paintings celebrate the colourfulness of the everyday. She has exhibited at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition as well as with the New English Art Club, The Royal Society of Painter Printmakers, The Royal Watercolour Society and the Royal Society of British Artists. She has also appeared on Sky Arts Landscape Artist of the Year, reaching the semi-finals in 2018.
Caroline Case is a printmaker working with relief prints in woodcut, and recently, collagraph. She has combined printmaking with poetry, letterpress or clay work when working on a particular series. She had a previous career in art therapy and child psychotherapy. She is a member of Hybrid, a group of artists and art therapists who show work together.Her work is based between the outer world of nature and the inner world of imaginings. Working with woodcut I am inspired by landscape and by narrative; fairytale, current events, and to both personal and cultural story.
