I am a Mixed Media Artist and have produced works of art and exhibited for over 30years. I work with a variety of media whether it be painting & sculpture ceramics or using found objects, photos, collections.  There are often strong story lines accompanying groupings of artworks.  My work relates to people's stories and lives.  I can share my visual perceptions of the world having been born in Britain from immigrant refugee Polish parents who as a consequence of the Second World War ended up here.  It was not a choice.  I am interested in the theme of DIASPORA as many people experience a sense of disconnectedness whether they were born here or not.  I am exploring the missing pieces of the jigsaw puzzle through my artwork. 

DIASPORA means: The dispersion or spread of people from their original homeland.



Eila Goldhahn & Stuart Young


Sunday 5th June to Saturday 11th June  ~ 10am - 4.45pm daily


This exhibition by Eila Goldhahn and Stuart Young explores images of nature, architecture and human relationship in photography, sculpture and dance video.

By working collaboratively the artists try to gently address issues of climate change and obliteration by creating a habitat in which sharing becomes possible.

My career started after completing a 3-year architectural interior design course at the Central Liverpool College of Art & Design.

Over a period of 35 years I have been involved in the design of national & international exhibition stands, commercial interiors, & architectural illustration.

My time now is spent walking & painting the Cornish landscape & coastline. I find inspiration in the summation of the Atlantic swells crashing onto the ancient coastline, the smell of the summer ozone, or a dramatic cloud formation allowing the sunlight to filter through & cast shadow over the landscape.

My architectural background brings great joy if I come across a distant cottage, or a disused lifeboat station I can turn into a painting.

I paint in oils or acrylic or both depending on how I want to capture the atmosphere or memory of a place I have visited. I will probably paint in acrylic for it's fast drying properties if I'm relying on a quick thumbnail sketch or a memory of the moment.

Painting a picture can be a long & involved process, apart from the physical aspects, getting the composition & selection of pigments to my liking, I have to be sure that I have captured the moment. Many hours can be taken up drinking tea while staring at the easel, adding or taking away paint, as I feel necessary. When I can do no more, the painting is finished. Only then is the painting ready to leave me, in the hope it will spark a memory or inspire its next custodian.

We are a small group of like minded crafters who enjoy a creative challenge working towards an exhibition every two years. We have exhibited at Birdwood House since 2010 working on chosen themes. Our current challenge explores the theme ‘What Lies Beneath” creating our own interpretations using different styles and techniques of mixed media, beadwork, embroidery, felt work and patchwork and quilting.
