Anna Brandon
The late Anna Brandon wasn't only a very talented dancer, but as you can see below, she was an accomplishished artist as well.

Chloë  Ferguson
I graduated from University of Ulster, Belfast in July 2014, where I specialised in printmaking. I then went on to do my PGCE in Art and Design and have been working as an Art teacher from 2016. Although I spend most of my time teaching, I still enjoy producing my own work. I tend to experiment with different media and techniques, and regularly take on commissions.

Elaine Munn
I haven't been painting very long so still experimenting. Using watercolour, I have been painting animals and portraits.

Frances Leathem
Watercolour painting is my favourite medium in which the paints are made of pigments suspended in a water based solution.  It is also known as a translucent art medium.  Done right, beautiful mists and softness can be created into paintings.  From my introduction to watercolour, the journey has brought many blessings from exhibitions for raising funds, commissions here and abroad and the wonderful thing about it, I am still on this lovely journey and enjoying this gift.

Coalisland Spade Mill situated in the Ulster Folk Museum, Cultra. This scene spoke of peacefulness and quietness. It reminded me of the verse 'Be still and know that I am God' and with no one around the painting was created.

Carrick-a-rede Rope Bridge
A lovely sea mist was descending, which became a challenge to capture on paper. I enjoyed every moment of the experience, although once finished, the thought of crossing back over the bridge was a concern. The cliffs reminded me that God is our rock.

The Forgotten Church - Medium: Watercolour
The Chapel of the Resurrection just off the Antrim Road was constructed in 1865/1869 in the Gothic Revival style as a Mortuary Chapel for the 3rd Marquis of Donegal, whose seat was Belfast Castle.

The last service was held  in August 1972. By the 1980's the Church has fallen into disrepair and was being reclaimed by nature. Sadly this beautiful building now sits in the middle of a housing estate but hopefully it can become an attractive modern dwelling.
