Janet Rogers

Janet Rogers

Janet Roger’s work is very much influenced by the work of Samuel Palmer, a 19th Century English painter. The most recent work is abstract using mixed media and special techniques, incorporating gold leaf.

Her style has a timeless quality and the colours compliment and harmonize with any setting.

Due to the success of her work, Janet Rogers has been published by leading fine art printers, who produced several of her paintings as limited edition prints.

She paints full time from her studio in Kent.

Kay Elliot Kay Elliott

Kay is Fascinated by the complex structure of flowers and excited by their beauty. Spontaneous, fresh, contemporary but carefully observed, her work has been likened to that of Dame Elizabeth Blackadder RA OBE.

Creating the balance between the delicacy of petals and their intensity of colour seems to come easily to her – producing paintings that are both decorative and beautiful, with gorgeous colours and elegant forms.

Kay Elliott’s work has been reproduced on cards and now is on 15 fantastic soft furnishing
