Once again it is time to get out the displays and prepare to meet you all with my cards and prints! The Rushden Lakes Handmade Crafts Fair is back, Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd of July. I am looking forward to the weekend and meeting lots of people again.
This year I have made some cotton teatowel designs from my artwork which will be onsale at my stall. Also next years Calendar will also be on sale and ready to go. (super early)
So here is praying for some nice weather and a busy day! See you down there!
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.
