Art, Design & Photography

Rick Walker, Artist / Creative Director

I have always loved drawing. I grew up in the late '80s when people were really into hip-hop. Everyone wanted to be either a DJ, a breakdancer, or a graffiti artist. I was very bad for the two first ones, and actually quite good at drawing, so I got stuck to drawing. I got into graffiti at an early age and that’s what taught me that I had a passion for colours, typography, and illustration...

Matt Evans, Founder: Box of Well Nice Stuff

The box was a collection of some of my favourite local artists’ work. The works were created into some awesome, unique products. We made stickers, colouring books, badges, prints and my favourite was the temporary tattoos! They allowed people to wear the artists’ work on their skin, which was quite exciting...

Katherine Cromwell, Pet Portraitist

After graduation, she spent a short time in London working for Lawray Architects. “Soon I realised that architecture was not for me and I needed to figure out what to do in life,” she said. Also, city life was not particularly appealing to newly-married Katherine and the couple moved to Dorset. While still sorting out her career path, she found a part-time job at Poole Pottery, where she helped visitors to experience what it takes to create an item out of clay...

Ian Hargreaves, Artist

In a tiny studio, tucked in the back yard of his home in Poole, fine artist Ian Hargreaves creates dreamy paintings of Venice, lush scenery of the New Forest, and gentle scenes of everyday life. Then his paintings travel to galleries and private collections across England, Europe, and the US...

This project will archive a range of different people’s experiences of the coronavirus pandemic from across the county. In order to tell the story of the virus and its impact on Dorset for future generations...

Chris Farrier-Ledden, Photographer

I have always been quite artistic. When I was doing my GCSEs, I enjoyed painting and drawing - I still do even now. But I got into photography when I was in Year 11, so 15 or 16. I don't think you had to photography but it helped towards a piece of coursework, and so I went with my dad to Corfe Castle, to shoot the sunrise. And I remember, it wasn't even a particularly nice sunrise. But I always remember really enjoying it; I love being outdoors, camping, fishing and hiking, so I just really loved the experience...

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...
