Shrewsbury Open Studios // 16th Sept - 6th Oct:
As part of Shrewsbury Open Studios; an Art Trail by artists and designer-makers from the Shrewsbury area, the Hive is delighted to be featuring the work of local artists Louise Diggle and Roger Keeling.
Trained in Fine Arts and Printmaking in Leicester, Rogerís work is based on the human form, focusing on aspects of the model such as portraiture.
Louise finds inspiration in the animals she sees around her in rural South Shropshire. She aims to convey attitude, mood and atmosphere through her use of colour, tone, light and texture.
