Welcome to our world!

Carolyn King and Phil.Clayton M.A, B.A .PGCE.
LEGASSICK STUDIO

Please note, our site gives examples for commissions, mentoring and advice.

Philip trained at Barnet College, Sir John Cass and Central St. Martins’
and as a painter, he is respected for his uncompromising approach to his craft and has had much success both home and abroad.

Using oil - mostly en ‘plein-air’ - Philip responds to his environment with a unique sense of colour, capturing the ageing and traces of buildings and their surroundings or exposing hidden landscapes often passed by, weaving them into abstraction as past and present fuse.

Philip is also a regular exhibitor and supporter of Art for Youth, the London based charity and is instrumental with innovative,
dynamic changes in Arts based educational establishments where he has headed several departments.
Philip also runs Sou' Sou' West Galleries at Symondsbury, (a community CIC) in the heart of Dorset giving a voice to both local and established artists in a welcoming and professional space.

CAROLYN trained at Sir John Cass, Central St. Martins’ and Chelsea Schools of Art and Design
She seeks to make the invisible visible, the 'everyday' matter, with the figure proving an endless source of inspiration.

'I like my paintings to have a sculptural feel as if I have carved them into being, ready to engage with the viewer at a moments notice!
Both as illustrator and writer Carolyn’s work often shows a serious sense of fun occasionally venturing into 3D as complement to her unique children's books.

Exhibitions include Royal Academy, The RWA (selected painters) Association of Illustrators and the Mall Galleries
Clients include Oxford University Press, Transworld and several public venues including hospitals and museums.
