Meet the Artists

Aldo Balding



Aldo Balding was born and raised in the United Kingdom and currently lives in the South of France.

He started off his career as an illustrator before making the move to France to become a full-time artist.
Aldo studied at the Southampton College Faculty of Design. After leaving with a diploma in illustration he worked for the next fifteen years or so as a freelance illustrator and portrait painter producing illustrations for Punch, the Sunday Times and an array of advertising agencies.

Portrait commissions included the Miss Pears winner in 1996 and his work was selected for the BP Awards at the National Portrait Gallery and shown at the Royal Society of Portrait Painters.

Recent portraits have included golfers Ernie Els and Paul Casey, golf commentator Peter Alliss and one of his most challenging subjects to date - MND sufferer Sarah Ezekiel, 'an amazing woman dealing with a debilitating illness'

There is a narrative element to Aldo's work in which he sets up scenarios, with no specific outcome, leaving it up to the viewer to determine what is going on. He believes that the way a person holds their body can say more about their feelings and intentions, than words.

Aldo's commissioned originals hand in many private and corporate collections the World over.

Kay Johns


Kay is in her element whilst painting wildlife.

Kay was born in Tring in Hertfordshire. During her childhood, she spent many happy hours at the local stables and neighbouring farms, allowing her access to the animals she loved so much.
She studied Art at College in London and trained in graphic design, which enabled her to enter into the creative world of design and illustration of children's books.

After meeting her partner David, they set up home together in an old farmhouse in Lincolnshire, surrounded by beautiful countryside. Kay found this so inspiring that she has lovingly created a fantastic range of wildlife paintings.

Many hours are spent observing the behaviour of different animals; in particular the hares that play in and around the farmland that surrounds Kay's art studio and of course the magnificent livestock specimens that she spends considerable time photographing in the cattle sheds at the County Shows.

Her black background images have a photo-realistic style but with an artistic twist. These pieces are created mostly in pastel which when combined with the dark background, creates a dramatic lighting and a wonderful texture.

Her focus and inspiration for the majority of these painting is the eye, Kay like many great artists believe the eye is the very essence of the animals' soul.
