Audrey has followed a career as an artist-teacher since graduating from the University of Leicester in 1977 where she gained a B.Ed (Credit) in Art and Design and Certificate in Education. At the start of her career, she taught in a large comprehensive school in Bolton and extended her experience and expertise across the key stages to later coordinate Art and Design in a community school in Rochdale. This experience led her to becoming a Senior Lecturer in Professional Studies at Liverpool Hope University from 1998-2011, where she led and taught students on the BA undergraduate and postgraduate  Art & Design courses wishing to becoming teachers and art specialists, together with organising a series of annual community art workshops in disadvantaged areas of Merseyside as part of the ‘Aim Higher’ schools’ initiative.

 

The opportunity to continue her professional development led her to Switzerland to the College of Beaux Arts to continue her studies towards a Diploma in Stained Glass and Fine Art, which she successfully completed in 2015.

 

Audrey’s work is inspired by both the natural and manufactured world and explores the various ways in which the landscape has been shaped through history. She has exhibited her work in London and abroad, in Switzerland and NSW, Australia, and continues to paint in her spare time.

 

“My love for nature and for everything that breathes air has been a great source of inspiration for my own personal artwork and for inspiring my students in their personal art journey.”

Jane Cheek’s brightly colored abstract canvases combine expressionist painting with fiber art. She uses embroidery to create subtle detail and sculptural fibers to add dimension to her work. The dichotomy of life informs her process and she often works with opposing elements as a result. Cheek’s art juxtaposes opacity and translucency; two dimensions and three; and structure and complete abstraction. Her color palette is inspired by nature, while her form and structure take inspiration from her life, both past and present. Cheek’s work is a daily practice of seeking and creating joy and her art is an examination of the beautiful mess that is life, love, motherhood, and humanity.

Jane Cheek attended North Carolina State University where she received a BA in Visual Arts Applications. She then completed her K-12 Visual Arts Teacher Certification at Eastern Carolina University. After graduating, she taught art for five years at a K-8 charter school in Durham. She now teaches private art classes and works as a studio artist. Cheek has exhibited her art throughout The Triangle, including at 311 Gallery, Artspace, and The Arts Center. When she isn’t working on art, she and her family can be found living the unschooling life at local parks and museums, and travelling as often as possible.

Heidi lives with her family in Romsey and her daytime and evening classes will be held locally. Heidi graduated from Portsmouth University with a BA in International Finance and Trade. She since met her husband and now has two children, aged 12 and 8. Prior to joining ColourWheel Heidi has experience of running her own restaurant business and is now very excited to be facing a new challenge. Along with her busy home life with her family Heidi loves to cook and tries to make time for sport. She has a love for art and her dream was to go to art school. Her practical side won the day but her creativity has never left her and she not only enjoys creating art herself but loves watching others grow and develop their skills.
