Artists and architects in the south east
Throughout history, artists and architects have inspired each other. The south east Festival of Architecture is a great opportunity to forge creative links between architects and artists – which may lead to fruitful partnerships in the future.
These are just a few of the artists in the south east who have worked with architects.

NatArt's synergy to architects is the ability to adapt and create a complete visual article specifically for the decoration of the environment being designed. Choose from a varied portfolio or commission the artwork to suit your needs. NatArt designs fine art photographs, not images straight out the camera, but creative imagery. Segments of pictures are layered together, even the injection of paint/pencil directly onto the photographic page is incorporated to create a unique, original wall-hanging or free standing frame. NatArt is also a bespoke picture framer specialising in creative mounting and framing. NatArt advises the client before producing a presentational method which suits both the interior decoration and the artwork it protects and enhances.

Gabrielle Preedy Stained Glass
Worked with: Sarum Architects
I studied Stained Glass and Transparent Media and Glass and Architecture at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design. I use traditional techniques, acid etching, painting and silver staining and make highly experimental small scale art works. I enjoy working with architects, designing for specific architectural settings, taking into account the overall vision of the concept and space. I use soft luminous glass or bright vibrant colours, depending on the architectural space. Commissions include stained glass for Property developers, domestic buildings, Medieval, Victorian and Modern churches in London, Essex, Wiltshire and Hampshire.
