Dan Hearn – Hearn Family Glazing

Starting in his late teens in the double-glazing industry, Dan has worked in many facets of the glass world, with a career spanning nearly two decades.  After developing a fascination in the traditional craft of leaded lights and stained glass, he studied Architectural Glass Design before stepping into the world of stained-glass conservation.  As part of a team, he spent five years helping to preserve the glass in churches, cathedrals and royal households across the country.

Taking up residency at Kigbeare Studios, Dan has set up an independent stained-glass studio.  While his focus is on making new bespoke leaded lights and stained glass, he also endeavours to restore and maintain existing panels to keep the craft alive.  His personal work reflects his interest in geometry, colour and pushing the limits of the material itself, mixing traditional techniques with contemporary design.

Dan can offer an introductory day course to traditional leaded lights, suitable for anyone interested in the craft.

Isobel Eggleton

Isobel has only just began what will hopefully be a long career as a painter.  After graduating with a degree in English and Classics and with plans to teach, lockdown enabled her to reconsider her career path and decide that a life making would be far more rewarding.  For a couple of years, she worked for a stained-glass conservation company, repairing windows for churches and cathedrals.  While the work was interesting, and allowed her spectacular views from the clerestory, the desire to paint and draft compositions of her own would not leave her.

In 2024 Isobel moved back to Devon and back to Dartmoor.  Having grown up not far from Okehampton, livestock, labouring farmers, horses, riders and Dartmoor ponies are all familiar sights and the inspiration behind Isobel’s work.  “I want to capture what rural life is like but not as a bucolic idyll.  I want to show the hard work of it:  the driving rain, the mud, the determined workers….  but beauty will show through as it always does when one is engaged with nature and the natural world.”

Isobel is self-taught and works primarily in oils.

Marcus Windle – fine art photographer

Marcus Windle is a Devon-based fire art photographer.  He completed his Masters Degree in Photography in 2022 at Falmouth University and is an associate of the Royal Photographic Society.

His practice focuses on landscape and the changes made by natural forces, evidence of which is written into the fabric of the land.  This is often only visible through the lens of time.

Marcus uses different technologies, including drones, to capture unfamiliar perspectives of familiar places.  He has exhibited his work as large-scale images and produces Giclee prints.
