Thumbnail Media is delighted to present this brand new Publication, available to purchase individually or wholesale.

Having had an interest in photography for many years, our move to Wiltshire and the wonderful countryside and light gave me the inspiration to develop my interest further and start a small business from home.  This has now grown over time and I supply photographic greetings cards to some local outlets and have also sold photographs worldwide via an on-line stock library.  I am a bit of a purist so only do basic editing on my laptop so 'what you see is what you get' with my photographs.


I support a charity called Reverse Rett (reverserett.org.uk) which was set up in 2009 to raise funds for research and a potential cure for Rett Syndrome.  My beautiful niece, Lauren, was diagnosed with Rett Syndrome just before her second birthday.


I am delighted that some of the quotations have been submitted by family members and friends of girls with Rett Syndrome.  Profits from the sale of this book will be donated to Reverse Rett.

As an established and experienced artist I often reflect upon the time I spent teaching myself the basics. My work has always been based on my instincts, with the majority of my inspiration coming from the nature around me and the unique perspectives added by light.   


Given the opportunity I would spend every moment painting landscapes and seascapes in mixed media, my burning passion is to capture my feelings towards nature in my artwork. Light also plays a big part in my artwork, acting as a constant inspiration and helping to create a more inventive picture of the nature around me. Although I prefer to work on location, capturing the true emotion of a scene, I am often confined to my studio where I detach myself from the world to paint from photographs.


I am fortunate to live amongst the stunning back-drop of the Somerset countryside and having a second home by the sea in Cornwall provides endless additional inspiration. Over the years I've developed a special bond with Cornwall stretching back to my childhood when my parents bought a second home in North Cornwall. Now my family is fortunate enough to own that home and all our holidays with children are spent there too. The inspiration of Somerset and Cornwall are endless, and it seldom takes more than a few minutes to find a perfect subject to paint.

Jane Hyder produces paintings, prints and cards from her studios in Karori and Toi Poneke Art Centre, Wellington, New Zealand. She has a graduate Diploma in Fine Art from Massey University and has been an exhibiting artist since 1978 both in New Zealand and the United Kingdom.  For Jane Hyder ‘art and faith come from the same place’. Working in a fauve-expressionist style, her paintings draw on highly poetic, richly illustrative imagery. Narratives expressed through symbolist gestures, the paintings’ surfaces are expressions of a joie de vivre that seek and deserve comparison with Chagall, for, like Chagall, Jane’s paintings point to an underlying belief that art is a state of soul. Incorporated into this belief is the proximity of the spiritual to the material; her recent works are not merely paintings but art objects whose surfaces cherish both the decoration upon them and their physicality.


These are colourist prints and paintings that could be transported as though personal icons, but, embedded with the histories of their own production, their iconography becomes suggestive of the importance of the art-making process to the artist. The narratives here are thus double-sided. There are both the narratives if the art objects’ histories and the narratives which the paintings themselves depict.


Above all, these are prints and paintings which translate faith through the creative process into art and in turn offer a gift, a generosity of spirit, from the artist to the viewer.



- Hamish Clayton, November 2008.

It was Jim’s habit, when he and his wife went on holiday - mainly to Europe - to take with him a small sketchbook and a box of watercolours. This book is a small selection taken from literally dozens of sketchbooks which Jim filled with beautiful paintings, sketches, and line drawings over a twenty year period of holidaying on the Continent - usually while enjoying a glass of wine in a café as his wife patiently worked out the next leg of their route.


Jim’s painting gradually developed a style which has come to be much admired and a great deal of his work has been sold both in the UK and abroad. Two of his main interests have always been buildings and landscapes, a selection of which are beautifully represented in this book. Jim still     enjoys drawing and painting and in latter years, has raised a considerable amount of money for charities through sales of his works.


This book is highly collectable to any lover of art and or European landscapes and architecture.      

Michelle McCullugh - Racing


"This book portrays the initial products of many days in the field, and includes some of my own horses in training at Newmarket. Such is Michelle's skill that many of those depicted, however peremptorily drawn they may be, are immediately identifiable as individual horses to my staff and I - what it must be to have such an eye!"

Sir Mark Prescott Bt. President of The Society of Equestrian Artists


The late Philip Wilde retired to Dorset but prior to that travelled extensively during his career as an Army Officer and produced a substantial portfolio of work, some of which was sold as commissions. His widow is now working with Thumbnail Media on an exciting project to gather as many of these beautiful paintings together for the first time as a collection which will be published as art prints and, eventually, as a perfect bound book.
