Millie makes abstract paintings and drawings that playfully explore colour, shape and texture. Millie likes to let go of any expectations and be guided by the process ofmaking. Inspirations of theirs include the music they listen to, psychedelia, Surrealism, Abstract Expressionism and Jean-Michel Basquiat.
Georgemma is a free-lance artist and architect in training. She lives in Liverpool where she continues to paint alongside her work with Studio MUTT architects. After years without picking up a brush, she rediscovered her love for colour in late 2018 when painting murals in Los Angeles. Often only having a pen to hand, she has learnt to integrate her mistakes into her drawings, resulting in her simplified figures and graphic painting style. Working with acrylic on unstretched canvas, her colour palettes and subject matter reveal her enthusiastic outlook on modern life and nature.

Jason work is largely inspired by geometric forms and shapes within rocks, crystals and minerals. Jasons practice spans stone sculpture, painting and murals.
