ABOUT THE ARTISTS
Emma Faull began her working life with The British School of Archaeology in Athens as an archaeological draughtsman and more recently has produced a book, Birds: The Watercolour Art Pad. She is an ornithological artist specialising in endangered birds and uses watercolour as her main medium and the Open studio work includes sketches and prints of Jersey birds, colourful parrots and curious hornbills.
She has just had her tenth exhibition in the UK with the Rountree Tryon Gallery which included a series of metalpoint works, a technique widely used in the fifteenth century using a sharpened metal rod, usually silver, to draw on a prepared surface. It is perfect for the modelling and lightness of bird plumage and she has used a variety of metals apart from silver, including gold, copper and brass. Emma will be giving demonstrations at the Open Studios and will have relevant materials for people to have a go.
She has exhibited worldwide and her paintings are held in many collections including the Audubon Society in America, The National Museum of Athens and over a dozen in the private collection of HM The Queen and HRH The Duke of Edinburgh.
Pippa Barrow was born and raised in Southern Africa. She qualified as a goldsmith and went on to work for the artist-jeweller Wendy Ramshaw in London for over ten years. A major career change followed her decision to study for a degree in Zoology, leading to a move to Jersey to work with the gorillas at Durrell for many years. A period of ill health brought about another change in direction, and In 2010 Pippa opened her studio on the Old French Harbour, combining her making skills with her love of natural forms and textures.
Creating work both to commission and to her own design in a variety of materials, she has recently been working on an open ended series of hand-built ceramic figures incorporating animal and insect based forms with elements drawn from African and Japanese pottery, ancient vessels, vintage toys, and her love of animation.
