Immy Fooks, Artist / Illustrator

I will jot things down as soon as they come into my head before I forget, and then start mind-mapping my ideas on a page. Then I would probably do some initial sketches, to get an idea of what it is that I want to visualise. I’m inspired by artists such as Vincent van Gogh and illustrators like Katie Scott, who makes botanical illustrations, and Camilla Perkins. Her artwork is amazing, I really like it as it’s very colourful and I’m drawn to colour and pattern...

Outdoor Cinema Experience Arrives at Farmer Palmer’s

Liam Ulla, Founder: The Coacoara Foundation

I have always wanted to own a charity, or something that can give back, throughout my life, and be there when I’m not here as well. Last year, I was approached to do ‘Mr Dorset’, which means that you represent Dorset for England, and if you win you then represent England for the world. I met a lady who gave me the inspiration to really push for what I want, what I believe in and what I could do, and to set up the foundation...

David G Taylor, Artist / Writer

My artwork sometimes features textile-like abstract patterns and colours that reference artists such as Alexander Calder and Joan Miro. I’ve developed a language of ambiguous shapes and marks that could be read as purely decorative, but on closer inspection suggests otherwise. As a collagist, I’m influenced by the Dada and Pop Art movements. There's also definitely a Punk aesthetic. I’m obsessed with lurid Day-Glo colours, and I’m trying not just to appropriate photographs, but often to annihilate them...
