Bertie Blackman is an artist who constantly reinvents herself. Like the oevre of her father Charles Blackman, Bertie’s work weaves between the real and unreal; her profound imagination and personal narrative have been inspirational to the recent paintings.
Helen Hopcroft weaves together an ongoing fascination with animals, The Arabian Nights and fairy tales. Helen has always been interested in the line between human and animal and particularly how this is expressed in art, stories and life.
