Biographies:

Ben Roberts is a metal sculpture artist, sourcing discarded pieces from scrap heaps to repurpose into garden art.

Maria Ames creates with acrylics on canvas, recording her environment. These soft, gentle works complement the hard sculptural lines of the metal flowers.

Heather Gordon uses her camera to document activities that become bigger in the retelling than in real life.

Joy Taylor records and edits sound and enjoys creating video from still images and sound.
