Untitled 2

Having studied fine art in Florence in the early 70s and afterwards at the Byam Shaw Celia then spent a few years following her other passion, food and cooking.

She then settled in Florence and started painting murals and trompe l’oeil which she has continued to do to this day with commissions all around the world including the Grand Hotel in Florence.

Celia is now concentrating on her canine and equine portraiture, taking commissions, the quality and character of which you will see below.

“Squirrels”  commission

With access to good photographs she is capable of capturing  a wonderful likeness of your ‘best friend’.


Having grown up in the depths of the Gloucestershire countryside, surrounded by dogs and horses which she loved, it is as if she has returned to what she knows best.

Jessamy has been using the time in lockdown to work on some detailed and intricate dip pen and ink drawings. Her newest collection ‘Insect Life’, features some popular garden insects made up of a host of flora and fauna pertaining to each animal’s environment.
The illustrations are finished with vibrant watercolour, giving a splash of colour to Jess’s usually monochrome work. She has been working to themes in 2020 and started the year with a collection of artwork stemming from the theme of ‘Circles’, such as the Golden Octopus and Yin and Yang Fish. The insects have been joined by flocks of birds for the second theme of the year ‘Flight’, so keep an eye out for some detailed murmurations being released soon!

The Barle at Pinkworthy
The Barle at Pinkworthy  –  watercolour  –  33″ x 11″     £150.

Clare lives and works on the Cranborne Chase in Dorset. She was born in Taunton and spent many weekends as a child trudging across Exmoor. She contends that we lay our internal images down in our early lives and that these images often represent perfection in terms of shape, colour, texture and emotional resonance. For Clare it was Exmoor and she was aware of it from very young.

Crow at Landacre (2)
Crow at Lanacre  30″ x 11″  SOLD

Clare attended the Saturday Art School in Taunton as a six-year-old and for many years until she left school at 16 and went full time to the Somerset College of Arts and Technology. From there Clare went on to study for four years at The Slade School of Fine Art where she was winner of The Slade Prize on graduation.

Larks above Simonsbath
Larks above Simonsbath  –  acrylic on board  – framed  32″ x 26″  £450.-

Clare takes every opportunity to travel. She feels she knows a country only once she’s been able to experience its landscapes. To experience foreign landscapes is, for Clare, to measure them against the landscapes of Exmoor – not to find them better or worse but to understand the curves and textures and to compare them with Exmoor in the pictorial sense. She still travels and will have a collection of sketch books, watercolours and drawing things with her wherever she is.

Larks at Withypool Common
Larks at Withypool Common  –  oil on canvas  –  framed  41″ x 41″  SOLD

Clare has exhibited widely and won many prizes since her graduation many years ago. She has work in many collections in many countries. She teaches in Dorset where she runs workshops and a summer school.

Kestrel at Landacre
Kestrel at Lanacre  –  oil on canvas  30″ x 30″   £450.-

Clare comes to Exmoor, usually twice a year, to walk, draw and paint. She makes many sketches and brings them back to her studio where she banks them with her sketch books. It is from this bank of sketches that Clare will choose a drawing to build up into a painting. Every drawing has both the marks made in the process of drawing but is deeply imbued with the memory of that time and place – all this goes into the painting.

Ravens across the Barle Valley
Ravens across the Barle  – oil on canvas  41″ x 41″  SOLD

Clare works in a variety of media but particularly likes the negotiable and visceral quality of oil paint and will often add spray paint, enamel paint and other kinds of paint to the work. She paints also with watercolours which she loves for its ability to have the artist ‘see’ the world analytically but accept the accidental which occurs when working with the watercolour. For Clare, it boils down to ‘you cannot paint a light place, you can only reveal it’ and therefore one must be conscious of the shapes and positions of the light places, whatever and wherever they are, in order to know where not to put the paint.

Ian has a BA (Hons) in illustration and worked for a wide variety of illustration clients before moving to Wales in 2001 to work on landscape printmaking.

Since then Ian has been creating large-scale landscape and seascape linocuts.  Utilising all the inspiring mark making, patterns and techniques he has absorbed over the years from a wide variety of sources.  Including a residency, with artists from the Torres Strait Islands, at Djumbunji Print workshop in Cairns, studying with Professor Wang Chou in Hangzhou, China and working with the Pine Feroda collaboration.

Ian now specialises in prints based on drawings done during long distance walks and exploring areas of iconic interest and lonely beauty.

Judith lives in north Devon, close to the sea and the moor. Ancient woodland, the ups and downs of Exmoor, the broad beaches, rocky coves and towering cliffs of the coastline all become her subject matter.

“At art college I was lucky enough to catch the final years of traditional print rooms. Learning to work with presses, inks, paper and processes reaching back centuries. Feeling part of this tradition and playing my part in keeping it alive is important.”

Complementing Judiths’ own work is her creative partnership with Pine Feroda, a small group of print- makers.  “Working in this unique band for the last six years has enriched and broadened what I do, as well as being good fun”

         This week, at the Lanacre Barn Gallery we are presenting an artist new to our team of exhibiting artists, the distinguished painter of theatre performers and performances and many other subjects besides, Alan Halliday (b. 1952).
          Alan was my art tutor at Oxford in the 1970s at the Edward Greene Tutorial Establishment where I studied fine art. He was, without doubt, the best teacher I have ever had. Since then, we have stayed in contact and recently, Louis and I visited Alan’s studio in France where he now lives and paints in Poitou-Charente near the Loire Valley.
           For nearly thirty years, Alan Halliday drew and painted the dress rehearsals of The Royal Ballet and The Royal Opera at Covent Garden as well as the RSC, the National Theatre, the Kirov and the Bolshoi Opera and Ballet, and also during filming for ‘Shakespeare in Love’ ‘Wilde’ and many of the BBC film adaptations of Dickens, Thackeray and Nancy Mitford.
           Alan’s first one-man exhibition was held in 1979 at the Windsor & Eton Fine Art Gallery and was attended by HRH the Prince of Wales. Since then, Alan has exhibited regularly in London, throughout Europe, in the Middle and Far East and throughout the United States, and his paintings are held in public collections such as the Shakespeare Folger Library in Washington DC and the V & A and the private collections of Ian McKellen, Derek Jacobi, Alan Bates, Michael Portillo, Zoe Wanamaker, Celia Imrie and Stephen Fry amongst others. And for many years, Alan has been represented in London by the Bruton Street Gallery, the Music Theatre Gallery and Collins & Hastie.
           Alan Halliday is principally an easel painter who specializes in oils on canvas of all sizes. He has an archive comprising several thousand of his chalk drawings that were made on the spot around the world which he uses as the basis for his compositions. He then prefers to work from memory in the studio, distilling the essence of the subject. His canvases range from landscape to figurative with flights of abstract improvisation in between! They are positive, uplifting and life-enhancing and many people have remarked on this. In a nutshell, Alan Halliday’s work is concerned with ‘le bonheur de vivre’ or the pleasure of life!
Alan is a prolific painter, and here below you will catch just a glimpse of many of his different styles, mediums and subjects. His website is full of further gems and information. All his pictures are for sale and can easily be sent, mostly unframed, from his home in France. Any sales to be dealt with directly through the artist, all contact details are on his website.

The Jardin Majorelle is located in Morocco in Marrakesh and was established and planted by the artist Jacques Majorelle in 1922.  After his death in 1962, the garden was neglected and eventually purchased in 1980 by Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Bergé who first visited Marrakesh in 1966. They also acquired the large house and garden next door to the Jardin Majorelle and named it ‘Villa Oasis’.
For several years, British artist Alan Halliday (nb. 1952) has been painting in the Jardin Majorelle and also the Villa Oasis (which is rarely open to the public) and his paintings capture the atmosphere of the exotic planting of succulents, cacti, palms and bamboo. Many of these plants are extremely old and were brought to Marrakesh from all over the world. The vision of the owners, Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Bergé; the architect and designer, Bill Willis; and the internationally renowned landscape gardener, Madison Cox (who inherited the property), has resulted in a Garden of Eden or Paradise of great beauty that continues to enchant and inspire the artist, Alan Halliday.
