Jane Chapman – “I studied illustration at Brighton University a long, long time ago, but now I live in a tiny village in Dorset. I illustrate children’s books, and write them when I can think of a story.
Writing is more difficult than painting, but painting takes longer to do. I used to draw pictures sometimes under the pseudonym, Jack Tickle, but these days I am just Jane Chapman all the time.
I have illustrated over a hundred books, and am celebrating 25 years in Children’s Books – hooray! It is such a pleasure to see books become real. I sometimes have to pinch myself that a story can start in my brain and become an actual thing that people want to read.”
Generally this means we do not have a great deal of Jane’s work to show, but when she does do non-illustrative work it is fantastic and a pleasure to hang. Unfortunately for us she is normally busy working to publisher deadlines on commissions.
Johannes von Stumm is an internationally established sculptor living and working in Oxfordshire.
Johannes von Stumm’s combination of very different materials has attracted public and critical acclaim over decades. His sculpture joins metal, stone and glass to create abstract or reduced figurative works in which apparently conflicting materials exist in complex harmony.
Von Stumm’s choice of media and instinct for experimentation is rooted in his background, in a childhood spent at the foot of the Alps with long winters, ice and rocks. His love of steel and glass is intertwined with his family history: ancestors on his father’s side were blacksmiths and steel factory owners for 250 years, his mother’s ancestors owned a glass factory in Bohemia. He initially studied law in Munich and then turned towards art, first in Munich, then more widely in Germany, London, New York before settling in Oxfordshire.
Amongst many honours he is a past President of the Royal British Society of Sculptors.
“Johannes von Stumm’s unique combination of three different materials has attracted public and critical acclaim in a decade of successful exhibitions, both in the UK and abroad. His startlingly original sculpture, which engages continually with risk and a defiance of accepted laws, joins iron, granite and glass to create abstract or reduced figurative works in which apparently conflicting materials exist in complex harmony.” – by Nicola Upson
