The exhibitors are Sue Welfare. She said: "The North Norfolk Coast is my go to place for inspiration, I love it, from the bustle and busy-ness of Wells-next-the-Sea, Sheringham and Cromer through to the wild, open, windy solitude of time spent in the salt marshes.

"It feels like there is something for every mood and moment, and my work is inspired by that ever changing landscape, its birds, boats and beaches, as well as those amazing skies.

Alice Wilton. She said: Having lived abroad for over 25 years I now live in North Norfolk and work from my studio in Wood Dalling. I paint the local landscape, beach, and seascape and enjoy working with mixed media on paper where the subject matter can vary from fish to goats, sheep to flowers!

Claire Howard (jewellery). She said: "I make sterling silver and gold jewellery, using traditional methods. I love to use semi-precious gemstones like amethyst, lapis, lazuli and Opal, to give droplets of colour.

"My inspiration comes from this beautiful county we live in and I decorate my jewellery with hearts, stars, bees, leaves and birds.

"My current favourite is my beach jewellery collection. Little shells taken from our Norfolk beaches are cast into stunning necklaces. All my jewellery is delicate, pretty and made to be worn every day.

Sarah Bowett. She said: "Norfolk landscape and coastal scenes inspire me and I am intrigued by nature's shapes and geometry, working alongside man made marks on the land created by machinery and modern farming techniques.

"The big Norfolk skies act as a powerful backdrop to my painting and no day is ever the same as another. This influence is reflected, in the intensity of light and colour evident in my work.

Ian Ward. He said: "Photography has always been a passion for as long as I can remember. I enjoy all types of photography, but landscapes are my favourite genre, especially as we live in such a picturesque part of the county. I feel drawn to the coast around West and North Norfolk, which I visit as much as I can."
