Its the busy season! Hooray! I am going to be around a few places over the next few weeks and I would love to meet you, chat and talk art!
I will be at Oundle Christmas Market on the 4th December in my gazebo with new prints and cards. Then next I am setting up a stall at Rushden Lakes 11th-12th December for the pop up Vintage Christmas Fair!
I hope you can make it.
If you are looking for a gift or fancy trying something new next year I am starting the next series of ten art lessons from January 10th at Raunds, Irthlingborough or online. Get in touch if you want to ask anything
The Nene Valley stretches from West Northamptonshire all the way through Peterborough and has the Nene river flowing through it. The landscape is surrounded by lush farmland and old villages with hidden footpaths connecting them together. I have always used this landscape as the basis for my artwork showing the wildlife and hills of my home.
My artwork frequently uses a range of mixed media techniques that have also incorporated words. In recent years this has become more important and now collage is a major part of my work which often uses words poetry. The lines of various poems have been woven into my imagery - segments of which can be read.
The wide range of habitats such as wildflower meadows, wetlands, marshes, woodlands and wet grasslands are full of a diverse range of animals and birds. These offer endless inspiration for my artwork on a daily basis as I live right on the edge of a stunning nature reserve near the towns of Higham Ferrers, Irthlingborough and Rushden.
