Trudi Hayden's paintings stem from a deep love of the countryside. Living in the village of Alderton on the edge of the Cotswolds, she sees new scenes to paint daily on her wanderings with her dog.
Fully utilising the versatility of acrylic paints, her work often features striking contrasts and vibrant colours. In other, more atmospheric pieces, her subtlety of tone immerses the viewer in the mood of a scene.
Trudi has exhibited all around the Cotswolds and South West including the Royal West of England Academy. Her work is in collections overseas and across the UK. She will be exhibiting her original paintings at the Little Shop of Wonders, plus a wide range of signed, limited edition Giclée Fine Art prints.

Yvette Green is a stained glass mosaic artist working from a small studio based in Cirencester, Gloucestershire. Originally from South Africa, Yvette trained in Botany and Education before working in mosaics for the last 10 years. She works primarily with stained glass and glass inclusions and produces mosaics for all areas of the home, specialising in garden mosaics. Her work is inspired by the intense colours of nature and her love of the outdoors. Her garden mosaics are vivid and inspiring, bringing all year colour to the garden. They are designed to interact with their environment, reflecting and refracting light so that they change throughout the day.
She also has a range of intricate mosaic jewellery, using small ceramic tiles, glass and metal beads. The resulting pendants are small pieces of wearable art.
Yvette has exhibited widely around Gloucestershire, and mosaicked one of the large hares for the Cirencester March Hare Festival in 2014 as well as one for the Cotswold Hare Trail, 2017. She is a member of the Cotswold Craftsmen and the British Association of Modern Mosaic.

Tara Davidson is a local ceramist living just outside Cirencester. After many years in the fashion and clothing industry she felt ready to return to the tactile nature of clay, where her creative passion had begun as a child growing up in South Africa.
Tara's work reflects her love of the feminine beauty of lace and fabric, and some of her pieces incorporate lace patterns from heirlooms, passed down through generations of her family. She creates vases, bowls, tea light holders and jewellery in porcelain, using antique lace.
In this exhibition she will also be exhibiting new ceramics, including lace dinner plates, mugs and simple white porcelain bowls with a burnt gold-edge.

Jane Vernon works chiefly in ceramics and textiles at her studio in Stroud. Her main influences come from natural themes and designs in textiles and ceramics from different cultures and times.
Jane's ceramics work is mostly wheel-thrown tableware decorated with simple, fluid designs or sometimes precious metal and coloured lustres for more blingy work, but all her pots are made by a foodie and intended for everyday use.
Her textiles work is inspired firstly by colour. She uses a variety of techniques including silk-painting, hand and machine stitching and incorporating photographs. She also makes colourful accessories and greetings cards.
New work for this exhibition includes stitched photographs of plant life in the built landscape and silk "canvasses" of hares.
