Currently working in the studios are Louise Clarke, Emma Davies, Cordell Garfield, Dylan Fox and Danielle Smith. Previous studio artists include Joe Stogdale, Jude Lynn, John Stamp and Katharine Lyons-Burke.
Cordell Garfield studied at the Slade and after drawing anything and everything gravitated towards portraits and figurative work. Inspired by Caravaggio, Vermeer, Singer Sargent and Velazques and altho he is commissioned to paint landscapes, portraiture is his true passion. For Cordell the notion that “portraits are meaningless if you don’t know the person” is emphatically not true. Portraiture can evoke feelings of nostalgia, emotions, memories, a half-remembered face for the viewer, or the inner psychology of the subject itself. Cordell is a member and Publicity Officer for the Northampton Town and County Art Society. His work has been shown extensively across Northamptonshire and other galleries in the UK including the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists. Cordell is available for private commissions working from photographs or sittings.
