I am new to West Street Loft Studios having recently moved to the area after completing an MA in Fine Art. My practice is multi-disciplinary, encompassing print making, digital artwork, photography and collage. These processes involve the layering of marks, and materials to express our ever-changing relationship with the natural world through the passage of time. When I look at landscape, I see layers of history and believe our impact upon the land can be traced by delving below its surface – rather as an archaeologist might uncover the details of past lives. I also believe that nothing is lost from its terrain and that the imprint of the past remains, resurfacing through found fragments of existence and residual pockets of energy with which we may connect in the present moment.

My art tends to be illustrative and I work in a variety of mediums. When I arrived at West Street studio last year I was mainly print-making, using linocut, etching and collograph techniques. More recently I have been enjoying working with coloured pencils.

My sculptural works are built in response to the area’s distinctive landscape and are imbued with a subtle emotional charge.  My limited edition signed prints of Shoreham’s riverbank and houseboats will be on sale at only at £50.00 (usually 85.00). They fit an A2 or A3 standard frame and would make a perfect Christmas present for someone who loves the area.

Karin Hay White



Most of my paintings and mixed media are inspired by architectural construction and Industrial design. Some of the paintings have moving lines which break up the constructive forms, a personal feeling since I have always been living by the sea looking at the waves and buildings along the harbour side, the reflections in the water, the ever changing light.

The compositions are intended to give both a deep meaning and a deceptive simplicity.


Louise V Durham


Glass Artist. Usually works alongside carpenter husband to create large sculptural pieces with reclaimed sea defence timber, at this open studios will also have some small pieces including glass heart stocking filler pieces. 

Pauline Ford

Mosaic artist. Explorer of mixed media and furniture upcycling. Enjoys making things just for the fun of it and to be a part of a wonderful community.

Stephanie Young






Stephanie has many feathers to her bow. As professional graphic designer, she loves taking on creative projects.

On the day expect upcycled lamps made from vintage cameras, radios, kitchen scales and much more. And keeping with the vintage style, a selection mixed media pin up girls with original 1950’s prints, stars and their cars, and Dita Von Teese inspired screen prints.

She even does a bit of dog walking on the side #BarkingBanana 

Alongside her work will also be some of Nannie Stained Glass – a variety of decorative glass pieces to hang in your home, or on the Christmas tree. Very popular stars, angles are a great, affordable and original gift. Mix and match 3 for a 10% discount.

The salt and the sea are blown into Amy Frankie Smith’s beach studio and inspire her porcelain lights and watery paintings. As a sea swimmer she paints the feeling of immersion and the movements of the water.
