Danny Ewers ARPSFine Art Photography
Danny is a self taught photographer specialising in his love of wildlife photography and, more recently, his love of the outdoors has sparked an interest in landscapes too. Most of Danny’s photography is based around Aylesbury Vale & the Chilterns, travelling further afield when he gets the opportunity. One of his next projects will see him along the coasts of the UK, creating long exposure seascapes.
Danny has recently gained his Associateship distinction with the Royal Photographic Society (ARPS) and is currently working towards his Fellowship (FRPS) distinction.
As a bespoke framer, Danny is working towards becoming a Guild Commended Framer (GCF) with the Fine Art Trade Guild. With the addition of a new printer to the gallery, he can also print his images to Fine Art Trade Guild Standards.
His enthusiasm for his photography has seen a major change in his professional career too, resulting in closing down his mobile phone business and turning the premises into Gallery Thirty One. It is here that Danny not only prints his limited editions, but frames them too.
His work is on display at Gallery Thirty One and available to buy from the online Shop.
Fiona Ewers BATextile Artist & Printmaker
You can buy Fiona’s unique handmade textile art from the Shop
Fiona’s love and interest in textiles and print stems from attending several higher education courses at Amersham & Wycombe College in the late 90s. During her time there, Fiona learnt and experimented with screen printing, litho printing, block printing, machine embroidery, dressmaking and fashion. She gained 2 GNVQs in Art, an HND in Graphic Design and a degree in Applied Graphic Studies during her 5 years at the college.
As a Graphic Designer by trade, Fiona loves and appreciates the “hands on” approach to creating textile art, and in particular making felt in her spare time.
Fiona indulges in the freedom and creativity that felt making gives, and the uncontrolled outcomes due to the friction applied to the fibres. Making felt by hand is physically demanding, meaning that a single piece can take 40 hours plus to complete.
Fiona also creates limited edition lino prints, using the reduction method.
“It is wonderful to create a beautiful design only a few times, knowing that it can never be recreated the same again, almost like a withering flower that cannot be revived”.
