Mother's Day at Wyecliffe

Mother Day Art

The Perfect Artwork


At Wyecliffe, we recognise the dutiful tasks that builds up the strength of a maternal relationship, and the reasons why we involve ourselves in the challenges that poses as a parent. For Mother's Day 2020, we wanted to put together a well-thought collection of different artists and styles that would ultimately, act as the perfect gift for every mum. Our Mother's Day 2020 collection has been driven by the variety of different artwork that evoke different emotions so we are sure to not miss out on any preference. Read on for in-depth details of our chosen artists and more...

Craig Foord


Read More

Craig Foord has had a knack of recreating natural components in his artwork; His time working as a tree surgeon was a valuable period as it paved the way for an organic style becoming very sought-after during the year of abstractism. Re-creating his unique, oil abstract paintings, resin has emerged as the perfect versatile medium to use in Craig's artwork. The aesthetically pleasing outcome as a result of the clear durable gloss finish makes his paintings a wonderful gift for any collector.

                   'SYMPHONY'        |         DISCOVER MORE >

The organic elements from Craig Foord's pieces are ever more apparent from his time working in the tree surgeon field; In his latest piece, 'Symphony', the foundations have been built from the very roots that recreate some of his previous trees, only now, there have been spared; blossoming into beautiful, summer trees.  

Using a selective colour pallet, 'Tranquil Dreams' incorporates a purple-esque pallet to make the piece long-lasting with resin. Utilising the glue-like substance to protect his pallet dry, the medium maintains the strong presence of Craig's purple-dominated piece, topped with gold leaf.

Mary Johnston


Read More

Mary Johnston is an abstract artist who specialises in landscape paintings. Mary is inspired by natural elements such as the expansive sky, pools of water and natural forests. She has created natural abstracts on birch wood; allowing for dazzling display options although she has worked previously on large-scale contemporary oils which she loves to create as well as these 12”x12’s custom designs, the perfect little gifts that work individually or collectively as gifts for mother's day.

           'STREAMS OF PINK'         |         DISCOVER MORE >

Mary Johnston's cites her rich sunsets at her country-side yard as a big influence for her natural abstract pieces. The warm 'Streams of Pink' is a blueprint for her style; as the sun sets, the homely colours pierced through the hills as the sky remained vivid, colours bouncing and prospering of each-other.  

The 'Trees' and 'Tangled' works developed over a long period of time for Mary Johnston, selling watercolour as a young mum in her early 30's. Johnston's house sat at the edge of a ridge as the tall forest trees lingered from all corners of her country-side house. The big tangle of branches are also ever more present in her artwork.

Rozanne Bell


Read More

Rozanne Bell's introduction of gold and silver leaf outlines her confident approach in utilising such fragile media. The progression to combine this media alongside her renowned acrylic method has indeed created aesthetically-pleasing works of art. In particular, Rozanne Bell's floral pieces have been a product of this approach as the blend of traditional and new approaches exposes the beautiful floral range most associated with the UK as her artwork burst to life in resin finish.

               'PERFECT POSY'         |         DISCOVER MORE >

Returning to her first passion the artist swiftly introduced her botanical painting skills to the abundant flora and fauna of England. Rozanne Bell's 'Perfect Posy' piece is a vivid portrayal of the country-side vegetation that becomes highly anticipated at this time of year, making it the perfect seasonal gift.

               'PURPLE POSY'         |         DISCOVER MORE >

An Original Mixed Media on board Abstract, 'Purple Posy' references some of Rozanne Bell's very earliest dedicated floral works, in which peonies are delicately introduced, with the artist keeping to her traditional, spring-like colour pallet with the light purple and shades of natural green.

Anne Blundell


Read More

Anne Blundell is an artist famous for sunny seaside towns: nostalgic trips into bustling fishing villages and summer holiday spots which is becoming ever-so relevant as the transition from cold to warm weather gathers pace. The notable inspiration derives from Anne Blundell sailing of UK rivers, canals and estuaries with her husband, taking her inspiration from Britain's gorgeous little villages; the bustle and flow of everyday life - folks about their business, working or having fun.

             'LOW TIDE TASKS'         |         DISCOVER MORE >

'Low Tide Tasks' takes its artistry from the fun side of British coastal lines with holiday makers interacting and having fun. This work is the definitive showcase of Blundell's technique - teaming with life and detail; her trademark distant perspective revealing an abundance of activity and movement.

         'THE SHELL SEEKERS'         |         DISCOVER MORE >

Anne Blundell has previously stated that she loves the freedom of expression that naive work allows and the sheer fun of depicting the characters in the story of each canvas. 'The Shell Seekers' is one of those story-driven pieces that brandishes many hobbies from fishing, sailing to sand-castle building amongst many happy families.

Amy Louise


Read More

Artist Amy Louise undertakes a minimal and quirky approach to represent the highly stylised animals that have strolled into Wyecliffe Galleries, and in most cases, been carried back out under the arms of delighted collectors. Singling out creatures with personality, the illustrative lines outline the twitch of an ear and the strong shape of a beak, depicting the beauty of Louise's animals, every-time. Using her boards with a selective colour, these funky palettes are ideal for all collectors alike.

                'OUR FAMILY'         |         DISCOVER MORE >

With a cast of flamingos, llamas, robins, hedgehogs, toucans and lovebirds to name but a few; all of the animal kingdom awaits as a willing troupe of muses. 'Our Family' showcases the entourage of flamboyant flamingos as they take chase in this collaborative piece. Ideal as a family gift.

         'ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE'         |         DISCOVER MORE >

The artist works from images captured of creatures in their natural and protected habitats, caught personally or sourced from professional wildlife photographers. The material is the foundation of deconstructing every feather or fur coat to a series of suggestive strokes as shown in Amy's popular, 'All You Need is Love' piece.

Scott Bauer Abstract Artist
Scott Bauer Abstract Artist

May 20, 2020

A thoughtful and quietly spoken artist, Scott Bauer’s polite manner is the perfect reflection of a series of accomplished original acrylic works with pristine painted stripes as their signature structure. A genre named by the artist as linear formalism, the term conjures thoughts of complex algebraic formulas, a mindset far away from the freedom of creative imagination. Using fragments of memory along with his perception of the world, the artist distills light and colour into stunningly rendered stripes. Waved, faded and pure, the outcome are pieces both calmly meditative and excitingly vivid. Wyecliffe Galleries are privileged to share an insight in to the mind of this emerging artist.
