Amanda Ansell, Debbie Ayles, Jane Frederick, Anthony Jones, Brenda Jones, Jane Lewis, Colette Magnus, David Martin, Mike Middleton and Ruth Philo belong to a group called The Paint Collective. They are a group of artists who live and work in the Colchester area. Some have studios at Cuckoo Farm, others have studios in their gardens, some overlook the Stour valley. Meeting bi-monthly they discuss and debate subjects around contemporary painting, organise group exhibitions and critique their work during studio visits. Many of the group have worked at Colchester School of Art and many are connected to Paint Club East, a larger group of artists who live and work in the Eastern region.
