A Natural Eye In March 2011 I was fortunate enough to put on an exhibition with four artists from the Town Mill Arts Guild (see link above). Ronnie Creswell and Judy Hogarth create mixed media images and watercolours, and their images can be found on the TMAG website and by Googling their names to see the many workshops and galleries where they exhibit. Lois Wakeman is not only a photographer, but also produces some lovely ceramics, in between designing websites and doing technical writing. Lois's website can be found by following this link Trisha Hayman creates stunning watercolours in fantastic detail. Her subjects include butterflies, insects and plants and you can see some of Trisha's work on her website
