About the artists:-
Born in Newlyn, Cornwall, Glyn Macey is well known for his travel and art projects. He recently completed work on his most ambitious artistic venture to date: painting his way around the coast of Arctic Svalbard, documenting the wildlife and climate changes affecting one of the most fragile environments on the planet. Author of best selling art books Acrylics Unleashed and World of Acrylics (Search Press) and Glyn Macey’s Cornwall (Halsgrove), he is also a regular contributor to The Artist and Leisure Painter. He is currently working with the BBC on a major project exploring and documenting eight of the UK’s most fragile and disappearing habitats.
Rachel Levitas studied Fine Art at Camberwell School of Art, Advanced Printmaking at Central St Martins and Postgraduate Painting at the Royal Academy Schools where she was awarded the Turner Gold Medal for Painting. In 2010 Rachel was awarded first prize at the prestigious Lynn Painter-Stainers Prize for her painting Urban Fox III.
Both Rachel and Glyn will be running the “Test the Best” workshop sessions in the demonstration area of the Retail Marquee when they are not presenting.
