Andrew Bird studied at Bradford College of Art when he gained a BA in Fine Art. 'Based in the Derbyshire Dales, the basis for my work is the landscape and the coastal areas of the UK. Whether it is an upland moor, old workings being slowly reclaimed by the landscape, field systems, the weather, light, a rugged coastline or a busy harbour, my work is informed mainly by just being in a place. I work intuitively and usually with minimal sketching or planning. A painting will go through many stages of being worked and reworked, with layers being scratched and scraped back to reveal remnants of the earlier process, with elements added and removed until the composition and balance of colour, line and form is resolved.'

Alex Malcolmson was born in Shetland in 1955 and studied painting at Edinburgh College of Art. He worked as a teacher and curator before establishing a gallery in Harrogate which he ran for 25 years. Since 2010 he has concentrated on his painting, sculpture and box constructions, made primarily of wood; carved and painted and sometimes incorporating found materials. Sailing trips, the Northern Isles and marine folk art provide much inspiration for his work. Alex has exhibited regularly at Bircham Gallery and in other exhibitions elsewhere around the U.K.

Ruth Shelley specialises in contemporary glass design. Much of her work is inspired by her love of travelling; observation of the beautiful horizons and dramatic shapes and forms of landscape and coastline. Through layered glass Ruth creates a dialogue of lines, patterns, and colour. Ruth is a Member of the Contemporary Applied Art, Contemporary Glass Society, a Member of the Makers Guild in Wales, and has exhibited both nationally and internationally.
