The Café Gallery at Gosport Discovery Centre was developed to offer individual local Artists the opportunity to showcase their work in an informal gallery setting.
The Café Gallery is situated on the ground floor of the Centre as part of the Book Worm Café. This offers visitors a comfortable space to relax, browse and enjoy an ever changing mix of local artists as each month a new artist is featured guaranteeing a fresh perspective when you visit.
I am the Chairman of the Solent Art Club, a small mixed gender club and a very friendly crowd to enjoy your painting with. I had always wanted to take up watercolour paintings but found it impossible to take on while working full time. On retiring I was offered one to one lessons with a teacher and immediately took up this opportunity and have been painting ever since for 13 years and still enjoy our weekly sessions. Come along and give it a try.
Hello my name isLee Puddicombe, I am 18 years old. I amcurrently studying art and design level 3 at Fareham College. As well as college I paint artwork to sell to people.
I have also done exhibitions. I exhibited at Titchfield Art Show in May 2012 and won the award for judges choice.
I started drawing at a young age, I began drawing at play school from then began to draw with my Nan, who would set down with me and we would paint pictures.Sadly she is not with us now but I hope to carry on the art skills. When I am painting I am in my own world where everything is shut off.
I love getting feedback what is good aboutm y art work or what could be improved about the art work itself so let me know.
I am hoping to go on to University and study art further and I hope to become successful.
Thank you for reading my bio and looking at my art work

I’m a mum of three and have enjoyed painting and drawing since I was little.
Through the years, as my family grew, I’d often be doing dinosaur and animal murals on bedroom walls, as well as paintings and cards for family and friends.
Now my family are pretty much all grown up and I find myself with more time I am enjoying rediscovering my hobby. Mainly working in watercolour, I’ve loved picking up my brushes again and I am excited about the prospect of exploring new mediums and subjects soon.
After much prompting by family and friends, I am starting to show some of my work, and I hope you enjoy this small collection of some of my paintings.
I am quite new to the art scene only taking up painting as a hobby 4 years ago. I began with courses at the local Community Centre, doing mainly watercolors, learning the techniques and the use of colour.
To develop my skills in all aspects of Art I did a part time foundation course in Art, Design and Media at Fareham College from 2009 - 2011. I found the course both stimulating ,challenging and the most exciting thing I have done and now I am hooked!
My work is varied from delicate watercolours to colourful abstracts using acrylics
