Jain Larson Collinge.jpeg

You always think you are alone in this universe.  You are not. 

When Jain was confronted by the cruellest hand of fate, and was told she had incurable multiple sclerosis, she soon discovered all her wonderful friends had her back. Their eyes were on her. Every single day.  They surround her with love and reassurance.

This show is a result of all that encouragement and constant love.

Seek the eyes in the paintings…


Jain loves red. She spent many years in hot, Latin countries, and this shines through in the bold colour and lively temperatures of her paintings. She has lived, and studied all around the world: BSc.pure Maths Glasgow University; Art Instituto, San Miguel; Belles Artes, Mexico; private tutors for oils & watercolour USA & UK.

Her love of pure mathematics pours out of her art.   

Painting is her positive choice to beat the MS  demon. She hopes her work inspires other MS warriors to see a  creative way forward.


Abstract acrylics & oils are geometric & expressionistic.

"Return Journey"

15th - 6th March 2022

Since graduating from the same degree course in Cardiff in 2001, Paul Muncaster and Peter Swales kept in intermittent contact but ultimately went their own ways- Paul going on to pursue a career in education that led to him living and working in the Falkland Islands, Peter into mental health support work in North East Scotland. A fortuitous reunion in the South West of England led to them rekindling their friendship and artistic connection. This show is a result of that reconnection.

"Reconstructive Memory"

8th - 13th March 2022

Reconstructive Memory explores how, through the passage of time, cherished memories become fragmented and realms of memory and imagination that were once distinct become blurred.  This work was created using a mixture of observational and imagined processes through a time of loss

Chloe Farrant is a mixed media and ceramic artist from Exeter; this work contributes towards her MA Ed (Artist Teacher) at Oxford Brookes University

Mixed media/collage artist, who loves doing 'lazy' textiles (using glue!) and also drawing people/imaginary characters with oil pastels

"Recurring themes for me include magical mountains suggesting mythical journeys, trees of life, love and abundance and also very often she includes butterflies in her pictures - they feel to me to be very symbolic of transformation, soul healing and flights of fancy/imagination

I love creating a fairytale feel of other shimmering worlds using the magic of irridescence: sequins, glitter, paint, inks in encrusted layers that change in the light. All that glitters may not be gold but it is an uplifting alchemy, a healing force and creating beauty brings joy to me - I hope it brings some joy to you too!

I have also always loved drawing imaginary people/ faces/ characters - again possibly from a mythical,fairy tale land and representing certain archetypal energies
