“I make sculptures and drawings inspired by the colour, movement and diverse quirkiness of the sea’s fragile gardens. My practice is centred around the tactile process of manipulating and stitching into a variety of media; juxtaposing contrasting textures.”

Contact details are available in the bio: @not_enough_yellow or Samantha-harvey.com.

I also run stitching and mentoring workshops, primarily for children and young people: @stitch.sam or www.stitch.club

Harinder is an exciting and versatile artist whose genres span portraiture, landscape and still life. Her beautiful watercolours and oils range from the subtle and thoughtful to the vibrant and dynamic. 

In 2022, Harinder decided to take a break from teaching and is now fully immersed in developing her own work. She has a particular interest in faces and people, believing that the painted portrait speaks to people in a way that the written word and photography cannot.

About her work, Harinder says,

“I have always been an observer. There is nothing I like more than sitting observing faces – seeing the way the light falls, where the shadows are and imaging how I would capture this in paint. As the philosopher Aristotle has been attributed to say “The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance; for this, and not the external mannerism and detail, is true art.” 

This has always resonated with me, as I have striven for depth in my painting, rather than surface.”

My drawings are the threads that weave my ideas together and breathe life into my sculpture.  I work with a variety of media including glass, often based on mythological themes, reflecting my interest in theatre, dance, masks and magic.

I would describe myself as a city dwelling country girl – whilst spending many years working in London following a career in publishing design, as a farmer’s daughter my heart is fuelled by all things natural, and hand crafted. I work from my cabin studio, next to an unkempt plant and creature filled pond at the bottom of my garden, I am both calmed and driven by the natural beauty that surrounds me.

As an experienced designer and art director, I have worked across a broad range of magazines over the years – from client-based contract publishing to fast paced newspaper weeklies, from glossy interior monthlies to glamorous haute-couture and stylish textile specials.

After more than decade of raising a family and exploring other areas of art and design, such as print making and ceramics, I am growing these budding creative seeds while also nurturing other people’s creative ideas. I became involved in education nearly a decade ago and am currently working in two prestigious schools in the area, supporting our young local creatives to expand and explore their minds and ideas. Every day is like a foundation course when you support young minds over the course of their learning and creating… and I LOVE it!

Ashima juxtaposes graphic simplicity with painterly strokes. Her work is based on conceptual art and shows some attributes of expressionism, surrealism and feminism, and is blended with spiritual and psychological content.
