Karen Winship
"We all have the capacity to care for our loved ones but it takes a special kind of heart to care for others. Thank goodness for those folk."
I’m an artist and educator living and working in York. I work mainly in acrylics and take my inspiration from light and it’s effect, the narrative within an image and more recently looking at Dementia, seen from a loved ones perspective. Trying to capture the battle between the changes and our memories through portraiture.

Marius Els
"In quiet moments I think about the bravery and selflessness of Nurses and carers during the outbreak of Covid-19. To wake-up in the morning and go into a situation where you put your life at risk to safe other peoples lives is courages and heroic. I am full of admiration and gratitude for our health carers. Thank you!"
"South African born and now living in the United Kingdom, Marius Els is a master in creating astonishing surrealistic collages or as he calls it “new media art”. Marius Els manufactures images which are telling a whole story and have deeper meaning.' - Tilpy Photography
Marius Els is a London based photo artist and illustrator using photography to express his creativity in a surreal, theatrical way using digital manipulation. Originally from South Africa, he uses his experience and influences from when he was a classical ballet dancer to create imaginative imagery with poignant story telling.  Each project consists of research, planned modelling, props and landscape photo shoots from which he gathers chosen images to create the final image. Marius says, ""The whole process of creating these images can be rewarding as a lot of the topics are close to my heart and personal.""
All photographic images used in my art work are my own and created in Adobe Photoshop with  creative brushes, textures and elements from the Photoshop Artistry Course, Awake2019 Course, Pixelo, Tom Chalky and brusheezy.com"

Chloe Ann Munday
"Every time you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing."" - Mother Teresa. This is what a nurse's smile means to their patients. When someone is going through their most difficult time in their life, a nurse's smile can make them feel ten times better. It gives them hope when they need it most, a nurse's smile is the most important thing in the world for their patients."

Chloe Ann Munday is a photographer who is strongly influenced by colour and the natural world. Currently studying a BA in photography, she is still finding her feet in her photography career. Working mainly in still life, macro, outdoor and conceptual photography her work strives to make people think about the impact human beings are having on our planet. Her images are very ascetically pleasing using photography to make people question the effect humans have on the natural world. She wants to use her photography to remind people what we could be missing if we continue to treat the planet as we do.
