Gina Parr

Gina Parr is a Painter who also “paints with a camera” when traveling.

The image of the sea and the Artist’s thoughts about memory and identity are ever present in her work. Her childhood, spent diversely in wide-open spaces, fishing for Mackerel with her father, and her mother with her hoarding and mental health issues defined the Artist’s relationship to the sea and land, the uncertainty of the deep, the spirit and memory of the open space, evoking freedom and connectedness. She does not wish to recreate those experienced places, but to unearth the truth, to centralise the feelings and emotions that were and are present, to not be afraid of the material of her past. The Artist’s work is an expression of the intermingling of both joy and pain: the human condition.

Gina Parr was originally trained as a Fine Artist, graduating with a First Class BA Honours Degree.

She went on to Chelsea College of Art to study set design, leading to a 25 year career Production Designing many prestigious shows for television.

She returned to her Artist’s practice in 2007.

She has also lectured in art and design at Chelsea College of Art and Nottingham University, is widely exhibited in galleries and art fairs in the UK and Europe. She is an Associate member of The Society of Women Artists in London and has works held in collections Worldwide including; Keble College Oxford, Director Jestico + Whiles Architects London, President Boston’s Children’s Museum USA, Senior Economist Goldman Sachs, Argentex and Vedanta Headquarters in London, and Commissions in UAE, Belguim + London.

In this first phase we have included a diverse selection of artists we collaborate with.

Over the coming months this selection will continue to grow eventually to include all of our artists.

In the near future our artwork selection, frame visualisation and costing database will come on-line.

This will allow the selection of artworks and frames, see a visualisation of the framed artwork and include this in a portfolio for purchase.

Andrew Bylo

Andrew Bylo is an artist and illustrator with 38 years’ experience in the worlds of Advertising, Design & Editorial: 2019 finds him working mostly for a major client in Japan via Far East agent Cross World Connections based in Tokyo. He will shortly be starting on the 2020 collection.

Andrew’s core skill is working from life, swiftly and accurately in media from pencil/pencil crayon to gouache or acrylic. Stylistically, his work ranges from economical line drawing to full atmospheric colour. Spontaneity is the hallmark of his work.

During a rich & varied professional career, he’s had afternoon tea with Ian Dury at The Waldorf Astoria as part of a book project for Faber & Faber on emerging creatives, and been sent to Patrick Moore’s house to draw his portrait from life on behalf of Mitchell Beazley, only to be told by the celebrated astronomer that the drawing was ‘a grotesque caricature’. The publishers had warned Andrew it might not go well…

Drawing and painting people from life is his real love, and he was appointed in October 2017 as ‘portrait-painter-in-residence’ for London-based agency ‘krow’ and has painted all 54 of krow’s team. Malcolm White, chief strategy officer and founder of krow, said: “Andrew Bylo’s genius is in working quickly to seize a recognisable impression of an individual. We commissioned him to celebrate the role our people play in the success of the agency, and to make our office walls far more personal.”

Andrew Bylo is an avid keeper of sketchbooks, dating back to the 1970s, about 130 or so at the last count, and in his spare time, curiously enough, he rather likes to draw and paint.
