The Garden House Studios ... Martin Coe ... Nicola Coe

The Garden House Studios

Martin Coe ... Nicola Coe

Exhibition of works from the past year ...

Husband and wife artists Martin and Nicola Coe live in Hasketon, just outside Woodbridge where they both work from their own studios in the garden.

Both will be showing a range of works.

Martin uses drawing as his primarily way to make his images.

He works with a range of media which includes charcoal and pencil on both a large, and small scale. Some of the work is drawn on location whilst other pieces are built up from studies. After a break from painting Martin has begun to use oil paints again producing work which reflects his relationship with the Suffolk environment and surroundings. The paintings often deal with different views from the drawings, as each process calls for a differing response and working process.

Nicola is a multi-disciplinary artist.

Working with contact printing techniques, natural dyes and home made oak gall ink she makes a variety of paper works and artists books, along with a range of wearable art ‘foraged’. Working from nature, foraging in garden and landscape for keepsakes of memory such as feathers and leaves, her work attempts to evoke a sense of looking more deeply at the beauty of nature and in so doing perhaps encouraging us all to protect and cherish our environment a little more...

John Roberts - Painter


How refreshing that looking at paintings requires nothing more than some light and a pair of eyes ,,, no passwords, codes or upgrades. Painting might be old technology, but the fascination lives on for so many people and Roberts is just as fascinated now , as when he began working in oils over 60 years ago.

He’s a Woodbridge local and delights in local subjects from the beautiful old town as well as landscapes and portraits of people - sometimes with a touch of humour. He avoids sticking slavishly to a ‘style’ because he relishes the choices of subject and treatment as some of the greatest freedoms left in this politically correct and safety conscious world. Of course the success of all this is in the final viewing - no password required….’

Chris Mound and Liz Pressly




Chris Mound lives and works on the Suffolk bank of the river Waveney. His limited edition woodcut prints are inspired by the small moments that happen within the world around him. Momentary, everyday interactions between wildlife and the environment that can so easily go unnoticed become special just through being observed.


Instagram: @chrismound40


Liz Pressly studied Fine Art at Kingston Art School, exhibiting early works at The Young Contemporaries Exhibition in London, where her work was bought by the Arts Council and shown at its 1960’s Recent Acquisitions at the Tate.

“My interest has always been figurative work - strange people and whimsical situations”

An Afghan Life - 'The Castle' and other paintings



During 50 years of architectural practice since qualifying as an architect at the Oxford School in the late 60’s Robert [Alex] Alexander has produced paintings. These have not related directly to his profession, though the Afghan series responds to the two years he spent working in Kabul as Architect Advisor to the education ministries [CUME] in the late seventies.

Some of the Castle paintings predate Alex’s reading of Kafka’s book which recounts surveyor K’s problems, but both they and the book can be seen as contemplations on one’s relationships to power and bureaucracy.

People are important in these paintings, in portrait, in relationship with others, or with the natural world.

As will be seen, people and portraits feature strongly in all the paintings.

Nature and Gardens by Christopher Good


Self taught I initially travelled  and  began learning the art of drawing on the streets of  Wuppertal & Dusseldorf in Germany between 2002 /05.

In between this time a couple of small but humble exhibitions at the time helped fund further travels to France and Venice between 2005/07 where i could feed my hunger to work and  learn.

Since late 2008 I happily re rooted myself back in Woodbridge Suffolk , where painting in oils and pastels started to naturally  take over from drawing . My inspirations come from nature/gardens & equally i love returning to the figurative and still life.
