Past Mentored Artists
Chloe and Abigail Baldwin – Design and Illustration
Chloe and Abigail are part of our RAW Mentoring Program 2017. Mentoring enabled them to decide on their creative direction and how to best present themselves and their designs at our event in order to make connections and take commissions.
For us, art&RAW Talent, has been an amazing opportunity and catalyst for success. The support has allowed us to gain focus in our practice and direct us towards what we truly love to do. The event allows us to experiment with live illustration and gain experience as well as the opportunity to showcase our skills to a varied audience. We’re excited to see what the future holds for us and the other talented artists on the programme. Thank you to art&!
Buttercrumble wil be exhibiting with us at art&York 2017 as members of our RAW Talent Award.
As an emerging artist Kate needed guidance in editing her jewellery into cohesive collections, inspiration on how to present her work to the public and creating a brand identity through packaging and marketing materials.
The art&RAW Talent program has introduced me to an inspiring group of artists and makers; it has given me a wonderful opportunity to reach a much wider audience with my work; and it has challenged me to strive for a new level of professionalism in all aspects of my art.

Kevin is part of our RAW Talent mentoring program. As an emerging artist Kevin wanted help creating and presenting a cohesive collection of his paintings.
The RAW Talent program has given me the confidence and opportunity to reach a whole new audience that have never seen my work before. The support from fellow RAW Talent artists has been fantastic. Sharing ideas and feedback with people going through the same experience has been invaluable. Having experienced professionals prepare me for the show has given me a new insight into my own work and potential audience.
Kevin will be exhibiting his work at art&York 2017.
