Alice is currently working as a scenic artist for theatre. She is interested in production design, set building and sustainability.
She has lived in Cardiff for the last ten years and loves the city for its many parks, copious numbers of library books, and very good friends.
Caroline has been teaching and facilitating community art classes in Cardiff for over 20 years. She likes art, craft, carnival, circus, cycling and dancing …all the fun things in life. She also loves animals and nature and Grangetown’s Zoo project is a great chance to bring together making art with a love of animals. Like lots of people, Caroline wants to do her best to look after our planet. As community projects are at the heart of her work, her workshops often use recycled materials and for this project we’ll be using cardboard packaging.

I am an artist living and working in Cardiff. I completed a Fine Art Degree at the
University of Gloucestershire in 2006 and have been part of many exhibitions
including the National Eisteddfod in 2014. In 2013 I received a Wales Arts
International travel award to complete an artist residency at the Banff Centre in
Canada. I have been influenced by various artists, including Vermeer, Gwen John,
and Paula Modersohn-Becker. I use collage to create cut out doll like figures that
attempt to hold emotion. These 2D dolls then become models for my oil paintings
and drawings. I am currently exploring my personal ancestry and childhood
memories to inform my work.
Shwmae! My name is Lucy and I’m the founder of Greenheart Pottery, based in Grangetown. I have a background in Fine Art and Product & Furniture Design and am driven by exploring our connections to place and nature through making. As an emerging ceramic artist I am practicing different industrial and handmade processes such as wheel-throwing, mould-making and slip-casting. I am excited by sharing and preserving skills which bring us closer together and can teach us about our heritage and identity. Craftsmanship also offers an important platform for reflecting the beauty in nature and promoting more sustainable practice.
Painting has always been a passion of mine, but the reason I began painting
landscapes is for my own wellbeing. I’ve been suffering with mild anxiety and
depression, but when I realised that beautiful landscapes and my love for animals
helped me to cope with it, I decided to create landscape paintings. The purpose of
this was not only to share the beauty of our natural world with others, but also to
bring awareness and love for our beautiful landscapes and animals to help restore
respect for our natural world.
My artwork is mainly in acrylic paints using stretched canvas and I also recently
started painting on wood slices. My art is based on nature, be it abstract or
otherwise. My aim is to create art where my audience can immerse themselves in it
and experience the peace, joy and happiness to help bring positivity to their
My art workshops and art parties are based on beautifully illustrated story books or contemporary artists. I work with children of different ages from pre-school to 11 years old and different sized groups; on projects that are designed to engage, inspire and support creativity.
I design the workshops and parties to be fun and engaging, while at the same time supporting children as they develop new creative skills.
