Summer on the Estuary

Oil on canvas  24 x 18


I am pleased when my work evokes emotions, memories and a sense of ‘being there’ in the viewer… feeling as if they could walk right into my paintings. That is exactly what I strive to achieve, a complete sensory experience. My best pieces are those which take the eye for a journey through the scene. – Ron Parker

Smarty Vase – Lime

Glass  12.5 x 11.5 x 4.5


Glass is the medium I have chosen to express and explore my interests in making art. It is the resolution of interrelated aesthetic and technical problems that makes glass an exciting and challenging medium in which to work.

– Lisa Samphire


Tulip Vase – Amber

Glass  8 x 8.5 x 4.5


The Tulip Vase was designed with tulips in mind, but most flowers look great in this shape because they fan out naturally. – Lisa Samphire
