We have a great mix of previous years’ artists and new additions.
Elizabeth GroBe @Zac & Co
Elisabeth Große aka Lizita is an artist, fashion and graphic designer, born in Meißen in Germany. Coming from a family of artists, Lizita loves to draw since her childhood.
During her fashion design studies she discovered her passion for the creation of figurative illustrations and abstract portraits. Focussed on the female face, it is her fascination to capture emotiveness and to create a crossover of the archaic and the presence. Her works are developed in several stages, it is a journey and development starting from a pencil sketch, leading to a digital scenic modification with a storytelling momentum. The synergy of manual and digital drawing techniques creates a multi-layered communication between her artworks, which bear witness to a high emotional expressiveness. Her works represents a hybrid of art and fashion. Lizita is part Promethean Art Collective, a multidisicpline art group in London.

Katherine Forster @Brickwoods
After my art Foundation year, I discovered sculpture and went on to study full time for the next three years at Chelsea & Kensington Adult College to HND.
I am currently endeavouring to narrate and express visually, human feelings and relationships.
The medium I prefer is plaster, which I have been working with for many years. I like the natural elements of the material, and enjoy investigating more contemporary ways in which it can be implemented. Applying plaster to various mixed media has allowed me to create space within the figures and breath a lightness and movement into them.
Although I have specific concepts for my pieces, I enjoy the different ways these ideas can be interpreted, which allows the viewer to identify with my pieces on an individual level.
Richard Fairhead @Blackbird Bakery
Rich is a local illustrator, mural artist and printmaker based in Streatham. I work from my home studio alongside my wife and the little Gentleman, my 4 year old son Alf.
Rich takes inspiration from everything including old sailor tattoos, vintage signage, London buildings, 50’s ads, taco vans, movies, strange plants, shopfronts, nautical creatures and anything hand drawn.
Alongside his Illustration and mural work he creates Limited Edition art prints which include screen, digital & Risograph under the collective ‘El Famoso’
Guy Ellis @WInkworth Estate Agents
I like taking pictures that explore colour, form and texture; seeing beauty in the ordinary. Also check out my photos of abandoned mattresses on Instagram (guidoellis).
Since graduating from the University of Leeds with a First-Class Honours in Sociology, I have progressed my style from the graphite portraits I drew as a teenager to tattoo flash inspired paintings. I use bold lines, solid shadows and watercolour inks to achieve this.
The subjects of my paintings are often playful and cheeky whilst also maintaining a level of hardiness. As women are so often presented through the male lens,
I definitely gain a sense of empowerment from painting the girls that I do. Arguably, the subjects of my paintings still appease the male gaze, however I find the majority of people who enjoy my paintings are those who identify as women or non-binary. My work also takes influence from my Indian heritage as I love to blend the traditional tattoo style of flash with the imagery of Hinduism.

Denise Frackleton @St Leonards's Church
I was born and brought up in the South West and East of London. I tried a number of different career paths over the years, but improving my mental health has become a focus. Being creative always gave me comfort and pleasure since I was a child, seeing where my drawings would take me, I then developed this further in the latter part of my life and found everyday life, people and colours influenced what I would draw or emulate. I use a combination of different styles, colours and techniques such as dots, cross hatch, geometric shapes when I am creating my different art pieces. I tend to use pens, whether this is markers, glitter, biros, ink pens plus many more on canvas boards; I have also experimented using wire too on canvas. My subject matter usually consists of portraits of people from any walks of life and I also dabble in other areas such as abstract drawings and some landscapes creations.

Rinki Choudhary @
I am a passionate artist. I use my creativity and visualisation to create designs and then paint them in acrylics. I specialize in folk painting Madhubani kalamkari and minakari , they are ancient fold paintings depicting nature and human beings/ They are therapeutic. I want to spread these medium of painting as they provide relaxation, creativity and sense of achievement to any person.
The colours used are mostly primary colours as this was developed by ancient artist. I do the painting on few surfaces; wood fabrics and glass. The paints used are acrylics but medium changes on each surface.
Come and explore the world of colours and imagination.

Brenda Keyte @Creative Soul
BREN’S FUSED GLASS ART
A resident of Streatham Hill for 40 years, Brenda Keyte was a librarian in her paid working life, but was drawn to glass art after, by chance, seeing a TV programme about Stained Glass. She was captivated and located a one-day taster course with a Brighton glass artist to find out more. Thus was she completely hooked and joined a regular class at Richmond Adult College.
However, it was there, that she was introduced to a different process which she’s been obsessed with ever since i.e glass fusing. This entails assembling pieces of glass in a flat collage-style format, and heating to a very high temperature in a kiln, so that the glass softens and the pieces are fused together. Her favourite format is making glass pictures for wall hanging, but she also ‘slumps’ the flat pieces into moulds to form dishes, produces garden sculptures, tea-lights, pendants ….. This has kept her busy for the last 10 years, with a kiln of her own and a room in her apartment as a studio.
Her glass pictures have been exhibited and sold in the Mall Galleries, St James SW1, she sells at Merton Abbey Mills Market as well as other local fairs and has undertaken commissions for pictures of specified scenes.
Martin Grover @Streatham Wine warehouse
Martin is a fine artist, who began his career sometime in the last century after studying at Croydon College, Trent Polytechnic and the RA Schools. Working at his studio in West Norwood he produces mainly paintings and screen prints. The images of local landscapes are complimented by anecdotal and narrative artworks; these can appear wry and whimsical but often resonate with melancholy and intrigue.
He also skilfully paints portraits of old vinyl records, makes miniature and bespoke London bus stops, has an ongoing series of wild flower screen prints and is one of the original members of the South London Procrastination Club.
Fiammetta creates beautiful, disturbing and thought-provoking art that question notions of ideal bodies and traditional beauty
Joanna Niedzielska @I Love Coffee
Joanna Niedzielska is looking for expression through painting, drawing, jewellery making, as well as participation in community projects.
Born and raised in Poland, but has been living in South London since 2013.
Her favourite subject is the London cityscape. The pictures of the city are always intrigued by urban architecture, trying to capture in her works the unique atmosphere of interesting city streets, squares and buildings.
The jewellery she created is mostly made of recycled or upcycled materials.
In the early years of painting, she was interested in geometric forms but soon discovered that she preferred to paint city landscapes. She also likes to paint flora and fauna and pets portraits.
Rob Curd @Mediworld
Robert Curd has been creating colourful, confusing and surreal artworks for the past 20 years.
Based in Streatham, he has exhibited at a number of London galleries.
His work is often described as ‘very interesting but not the sort of thing I would like to hang on my wall.’

Zara Drummond @Roots Lebanese Home Grill
Zara is primarily a figurative (portrait) painter, which began by accident, via sketches of her children as toddlers. She has been living in Streatham for over 20 years and never tires of the interplay between light and colour.
More recently she has been drawn to paint portraits of trees and landscapes as they cope with the weather changes our planet is experiencing. Whatever the subject, Zara always paints from life.

Janet Baker @Dr Dolittle's
Janet Baker – Dr Dolittle’s
I took up photography when I was given a battered old Pentax when I was 17. I learned by doing, and finding my own path. It’s still the only way I can capture what’s in my head. Sometimes, what I photograph tells me more about myself than I realise. I capture the moment that expresses more than just a picture.
And sometimes I wear two pairs of glasses on my head and no one notices.
