Rosie Philpott


My name is Rosie Philpott and I am a local artist based in Droitwich Spa.

After studying Fine Art and English Literature at Worcester University, I am excited to be making a living as an artist and illustrator. I am delighted to be an active member of the ‘Droitwich Arts Network’.
My paintings of local views, such as “Wonky Droitwich” and “Salt Day”, have proven extremely popular with their ‘local characters’ and quirky style. I enjoy working in watercolour and fine line pen, exaggerating the scenes I see around me. I have recently begun extending my work across the Malvern area and am now capturing these scenes in my ‘wonky’ style.
You might notice that ‘the boy on the bike’ appears in all of my Droitwich paintings and the dog called ‘Elgar’ appears in my recent Malvern pictures. Take a look and see if you can find them!
The majority of my originals have sold. Limited-edition print runs out of 250 are now available in two sizes (A2 and A3). These are printed by the ‘giclée’ method on watercolour paper, signed, numbered, framed and provided with a ‘Certificate of Authenticity’.
I also enjoy creating ‘Stylised Portraits’ of people and their homes, picking up on their hobbies and interests. I have been praised for being able to capture an individual’s personality perfectly and providing customers with a unique and special gift.

Please feel free to contact me if you would like to purchase a print or have an idea for a commission.

Peter Hawkins.


Peter is an amateur artist, a member of the Elmbridge Art Club and chair of the Droitwich Arts Network.

“I have always been interested in the arts and for many years had been drawing regularly and painting whilst on holiday – often only one picture per year. When I took early retirement at the end of 2009 I had the opportunity to spend more time painting and wondered whether I would soon tire of it. The reality was quite the reverse!

I like my pictures to mean something to me – places I have been, people I know or events that have made an impact on me.”

Sheryl Browne


I’m a published author based in Droitwich Spa. My debut book Recipes for Disaster, commissioned by Safkhet Publishing, was shortlisted for the Innovation in Romantic Fiction Award. I now have five books published under the Safkhet Soul imprint and am super-pleased to have been offered a further contract.

A member of the Romantic Novelists’ Association, I grew up in Birmingham, UK, where I studied Art & Design. I work part-time in my own business and am a mum and a foster mum to disabled dogs. I’m also currently in my last year of an MA course in Creative Writing at Birmingham City University.

My last book Learning to Love started life as a short, entitled The Memory Box – a central theme of which is bereavement in childhood, which was accepted by the University to be published in their Anthology, Paper and Ink. I’m also currently writing part of A Little Bit of Madness, which features older people with a life left to live and something to give, to stage-play to be acted on stage at The Birmingham Repertory Theatre. Naturally, I am thrilled that my characters will be coming to life and treading the boards!

My books have attracted some wonderful reader reviews, all of which are truly appreciated. I hope I can continue to provide such reader enjoyment, because that, after all, is why writers write.
Please feel free to browse my website at or email me at if you would like to find out a little more about me or my books.

All books can be ordered locally, found on Amazon in paperback and for Kindle or ordered directly from the publisher at

Rhys Jones


Rhys spent his whole career working in IT services. He gained experience of the technical aspects before later moving onto project management and consultancy. Prior to taking early retirement, Rhys worked as a Large Bid Manager leading teams of people writing sales proposals to win multi-million pound contracts from the UK government. During his career he worked for large companies, small companies, and ran two small businesses of his own. This has given Rhys an excellent insight into how businesses should present themselves through words and pictures.
As Vice President of the Solihull Photographic Society and President-Elect (a position he will take up in May 2014), Rhys is also a proud member of the Royal Photographic Society.

Trading as Photo Maestro
Rhys is a commercial and family photographer who converted his hobby and passion for photography into his own small business, now trading as Photo Maestro. Working alongside businesses to create images that will help to sell their products and services, Rhys also enjoys capturing emotions and personalities at business events and special family occasions. Helping businesses and organisations raise their profile on the internet or in the press, Rhys knows how to show people, products and locations at their best. He is described as “easy to work with” and recognises the stress people feel when faced with having their photos taken. Working mainly from his home in Droitwich Spa, Rhys also travels to clients’ premises in order to photograph people in their home or working environment.
In addition to undertaking commissions (which are usually charged by the hour), Rhys sells individual images from his archive, either as digital files, prints, or framed photographs.

Droitwich Arts Network
As a photographer living in Droitwich, Rhys would like to support local events and organisations, and possibly collaborate with people who have other artistic skills and experiences. He could take photographs of local events or activities such as festivals, theatre groups, art displays, etc. Rhys is willing to organise “photo walks” or other opportunities for photo shoots. He could also provide support behind the scenes with admin or social media.
