Charles Evans Born and bred as a country boy in 1953 in the then West Riding of Yorkshire, I had the privilege of a childhood spent playing in the fields and woods, rivers and lake sides around the farm where I was born and brought up. In 1998 I was commissioned by Yorkshire Television to do a brooding type moorland scene for their TV soap “Emmerdale”. This I did under the scripted name of ‘Nathan Summers’. After this I was asked by Tyne Tees Television to do a short series of painting programmes for their regional series. I made the first three and these proved to be so successful that we made a further nine. We made in total 96 of those little programmes for Tyne Tees TV, they eventually went to half hours and now the half hour programmes are now being made for Discovery Real Time. These are going out not only all over the UK but all over Europe. The only reason I know they are going out all over Europe is because of the feedback that we get from such places as Netherlands, Portugal, and a little bit further than Europe…Australia! I can also be seen regularly on the Ideal World Shopping channel, Create and Craft. In addition to the TV work, I have been well known in recent years for my long running series in various glossy art magazines.
Denise Allen has been teaching for over 10 years, and has a gentle and unpretentious style. Whether you have have been painting for a while, or are just starting out Denise will give you hints and tips to help you develop your style. She is inspired by the world around her and loves nothing more than painting plein air, and loves coming back to the studio full of ideas.Denise traveled extensively after her foundation course at St Albans college, and ended up living in Bermuda for a while, and fell in love with the light on the landscape and the sea. Denise now splits her time between teaching, running painting holidays in the UK and Menorca, working closely with the SAA and on Hochanda, and painting in and around her studio in Norfolk.
Marilyn Allis “Society for all Artists”, artist of the year 1999, launched her into a career in painting. She has exhibited in the RI London. She has taught now for 20 years. Gaining inspiration from traveling all over the world, and bringing this knowledge into her paintings. An excellent tutor, covering many subjects, people, animals, still life and more in a very loose impressionistic style. She has made many teaching art DVD’s, TV programs and is the author of 3 books, ‘People aren’t scary really, Animals on the loose’ & Painting Dorset in watercolour’
