Pat Willard, silk painter - Pat, a self-taught silk painter, has been exhibiting and selling her work for 30 years.  A member of the Leeds Fine Art Group and The Guild of Silk Painters, she has taught in prisons, galleries, schools, at the Royal Horticultural Society at Harlow Carr and at the Leeds Playhouse.  Pat has been strongly influenced by a visit to Japan, following which she was asked to design a collection of plates for Royal Doulton. The licence to produce her work has been sold to many companies for greetings cards and decorative products.

Catherine Warburton - Catherine began her artistic career back in 1981 when she was at Manchester Polytechnic doing a foundation course in art. This was followed by a BA (Hons) degree in fashion textiles specialising in embroidery. She exhibited at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition and from this came an introduction to a London gallery, which led to several shows, shared and solo. Catherine has exhibited in many galleries up and down the country. She now lives and works in Leeds and is a member of Leeds Fine Artists.
