Gallery H are excited and delighted to be exhibiting locally grown talented artist Katie Edwards - A Stunning New Exhibition of orginal silk screen prints 20th - 30th March
"My work is largely influenced by the animal world and often has a humorous outcome. The illustrations focus on photographic representation, what images symbolise and their use metaphorically. Objects are often isolated and placed in unusual compositions to represent new ideas. Art has been a big part of my life and education, right through to graduating from Leeds Metropolitan University, in Graphic Arts and Design with a First Class Honours. I worked in London for five years as an artist and graphic illustrator, moving to Canada for two years undertaking commissions for Delta Airlines and Converse Shoes; whilst enjoying 2 years sunshine, snow sports and mountain biking! I have since returned to the Lake District to continue my love of art and more recently I created the art work for the new Booths store in Milnthorpe, being a representation of the old railway bridge, bringing trade to Milnthorpe.
Alongside exhibiting art work I produce commercial illustrations for editorial, publishing and advertising purposes. My illustrations are also used for greeting cards, t-shirts and bag designs.
I am delighted to be holding my first exhibition since my return to England in Gallery H; I hope you enjoy viewing my latest works."

Steve Houghton has brought a new individual presence to the art of furniture design; classically modern by design, traditionally made by craftsmen.
Steve followed in the footsteps of his grandfather, John Houghton, also a furniture designer
and at the age of 90 years can still offer Steve helpful advice!
Steve studied at St John's University College, York and then worked at Luke Hughes, a prestigious furniture design company in London as a 3D furniture designer for seven years. It is here he believes that he served his true apprenticeship, working on major projects for Cambridge University, BP, Diageo, Unilever, RBS, and Coutts. Since leaving the company Steve has worked upon his own designs for individual homes and offices.
Steve is delighted to be exhibiting at Gallery H, in the village where he attended the local primary school.
