Jane Will is an interiors stylist who has worked with a range of photographers and magazines to create inspiring spaces and houses.
Jane moved to Deal from London five years ago.
She has worked in various industries including the music business, PR and education.
Her interest in interiors and the items that make them work, started when she worked with the people who were responsible for introducing Shaker style to the UK mainstream.
Jane's eye for interesting items that create an overall mood and feel, with Caroline's artistic vision makes a great partnership for a 'home-store gallery'.
Will & Yates is a gallery and homestore that brings together art and interior styling; original paintings and prints, ceramics, vintage and new decorative pieces ... simply things that work well together.
Caroline Yates is a graduate of Central St Martins and The Royal College of Art. She also studied fine art printmaking at Camberwell before beginning to paint full time in 2000. During this period she has exhibited internationally.
After moving to Deal on the Kent coast seven years ago, and in light of current issues, she has explored natural and psychological borders; the joy of entering the sea and reassurance emerging from it; the perception of an element, simultaneously benign and therapeutic, and capricious and dangerous.
Caroline is known for her crowd or group paintings. She is now looking at “crowds” in their environment; in her painterly landscapes she has embraced the concept of movement without barriers, though mindful that we are all guests of the landscape. The notion of travelling and being escorted or guided safely by entities outside our perceived world also feature.
