Gillian Appleton – Textile Artist
I find I get a lot of joy from being creative. Experimenting with colour and texture gives me the freedom to express how I feel and the use of stitch allows me to add finer details which I am unable to obtain with paint.
Gillian Appleton was at:
Leven Crafts, Chaloner Mews, Chaloner Street

Lynette Rooks – Abstract Artist and Photographer
It Spreads … I am a visual artist living and working on Teesside. Since graduating from Teesside University in 2012 I have steadily developed my practise of working only from my own original source material… This work is a set of abstract fine line drawings representing the spread of austerity, spreading like a cancer across our country, affecting our poorest and most vulnerable people… The fragile delicate lines represent the fragility of the complicated lives we lead.. Each one of us is one of these threads connecting one another…. Spread kindness instead of condemnation, love instead of hate… I’d like my drawings to represent this… alas I cannot… Lynette Rooks 2018

Nigel is a Guisborough designer, Illustrator and poet.
I tried so hard,
Again and again,
To create something
In that vein.
To replicate your style,
Your beauty and your bile,
But all my arteries got clogged,
My pitiful attempts by failure dogged.
I died, an unloved, unmourned hack,
The victim of a fatal art attack.
Nigel was at : Sweet Temptation, Chaloner Street and doing cartooning workshops in the library.

Suzie Devey – Artist Printmaker
I carve my linocuts and draw beyond midnight in my Artavan in my garden at Chop Gate, finding solitude, solace and wonder in the creation of a plate as it is prepared for printing. During the day I pack up my inks, papers and rollers and wander across hills or through streets to print the essence of the world around me in steel grates or ancient oak tree stumps I seek out patterns as a backdrop to the midnight carvings and return to show such work in a way that it becomes urban or rural fabric of a place. Susie Devey
Suzie was at : Priory Bistro, Chaloner St Info/ opening times here

September Made -Tracy Reeve – Photographer and Textile Artist
My name is Tracy Reeve of September made. My work consists of a mixture of digital photography and illustration with embroidered textile work. I use Instagram as ‘September_made’ to show my influences, work development and finished pieces that I have created.
Most of my work is inspired by the beautiful coast life around us. I spend hours photographing the landscapes, the wildlife and plant life which I then study and sketch until my drawings develop into something I can create in textiles. It is important to me to reuse old materials as much as I can in my work, up-cycling old textiles to stitch.
September made were at : No. 30 Westgate, Guisborough
