Diane Goldie – Mercury Court, Oval SW9 0PA

Diane Goldie is a maker of wearable art, painter and soft sculptor . She’s currently the creator of a large part of Fabulous Fashionista Sue Kreitzman’s bold wardrobe. She uses African Dutch Wax cottons and then hand paints, embroider and appliques other elements over the top to create unique, flamboyantly rich art pieces that you can wear.

Expect kimonos , capes, vintage style sundresses, skirts and menswear like you’ve never seen before. With influences ranging from tribal to Frida Kahlo, tropical flora and fauna and lots of skulls. Diane also decorates bags to create unique art pieces you can carry around. Diane’s work was included in the Selfridges main window display as part of the Bright Old Things campaign in January this year.

Andrew Halliday – Plough Studios, Clapham SW4 9NS

Andrew Halliday studied fine art at Wimbledon School of Art and the prestigious Rijksakademie in Amsterdam. Focusing on painting landscape, particularly architecture, Andrew has regularly exhibited and undertaken private commissions.

Presently his paintings concentrate on the threshold of day and night; the resulting low-level light effects create new possibilities in his work. The paintings on show during the Lambeth Open depict scenes of London, especially the financial district, Waterloo and the South Bank.

Kaye Parmenter – Plough Studios, Clapham SW4 9NS

Kaye Parmenter is a resident artist for British Polo Day. She has exhibited within the members area at The Queens Club, London, and has been asked to paint for the Household Cavalry Foundation. Primarily a watercolour artist, Kaye’s works are vivid, expressive and cover a large range of subject matter.

“My inspiration comes more from capturing the essence of the moment, rather than the subject itself.” She has recently received an Honorary Mention and was awarded a prize at Art Has No Borders. Commissions that she has received have encouraged her to ride a quad bike across muddy fields, attend a clay pigeon shoot and polo matches all in the name of research.

She continues to explore with her art to bring maximum impact to the viewer whether it be via the expression of power and action or by capturing the personality of a subject.
