Caroline Lain

Art forms: Visual Artist, Workshop Leader and Teacher

Summary: I am an artist, freelance artist educator and also a Foundation Learning Tutor for SEN learners.

I am particularly passionate about Arts and Health and its positive effect on physical and emotional wellbeing.

I use drawing, painting, sculpture, mixed media, photography, design, ceramics/clay work and making/craft activities within my workshops.

My engagement and fascination with the physical features of the natural world referencing North Norfolk, Scotland, Antarctic ice shelves, Mountains, Bird migration, Geomorphology and Coastlines are important themes within my artistic practice.  I work within a cross disciplinary Fine Art practice exploring large scale photography, sculpture, systematic drawings, and paintings through to ceramics.  I hope that my work aspires to being poetic, sensitive, humble, and strong and that it embraces skill and craftsmanship.  I almost always develop a series of images/objects which is significant in all aspects of my practice from making to display.  I have exhibited at the Royal Academy of Arts and Kettles Yard, Cambridge.

Locations: Norfolk and North Suffolk

Experience: I am a qualified teacher of Art and Design.  I have 16 years of experience working throughout the education spectrum; from secondary, further education, adults with learning disabilities, museum and gallery education, charities, community outreach programmes and exhibition projects.

For the past 10 years I have taught adults with learning difficulties, designing and delivering a variety of courses in Art, Digital Photography, Horticulture and Independent living. My learner groups include those with learning difficulties, physical disabilities including hearing and visual impairments and those with mental health problems. I aim to promote a supportive and welcoming working environment, encouraging confidence, self-expression, ideas and individuality.

I have led workshops for the North Norfolk Exhibition Project, Cley Contemporary Art Exhibition for the past three years running sessions for both older people and those working in caring professions and those with special care needs and their clients.

As an Artist Educator for the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts I delivered a project for gifted KS4 students.

Emily Campbell

Emily Campbell

Art forms:  Visual artist, community artist, public artist, designer, illustration

Summary: About Emily Campbell’s practice:

Through the use of photography my practice seeks to create a world that on the one hand is real and on the other – imaginary.  Using digital imaging, I effectively ‘paint with photographs’.  Each image is made up of many smaller photographs enabling me to create surreal and magical scenarios.

The work I create for Public Commissions seeks to create an uplifting yet calming environment.  Often working with a creative writer in the community, I visualise the poetic texts created about the local area.  Large surreal vistas are installed as light boxes or printed onto Perspex, allowing the visitor views of their locality possibly only before seen in their dreams.

Locations: National

Experience:  I have many years experience working in the Public Realm. All my work starts with workshops in the community, which inspire the final artworks. Recent projects include, a series of light boxes for Fulbourn Hospital, Wolverhampton Kings High School and Edinburgh Sick Kids Hospital. Please email me for a full CV.
