Face Masks based on Nene Valley Wildlife in Northamptonshire
During the Covid-19 Pandemic Jamie has made these unique face mask designs in order add a bit of fun and style in this difficult time. They are also a great reminder of the wonderful wildlife that surrounds us and has been more visible as the world was forced to slow down. These masks are both stretchy and comfortable whilst being easy to breath through.
The wide range of habitats such as the rugged coastline, mountains, wildflower meadows, wetlands, marshes, woodlands, hills, and dales of the United Kingdom are full of a diverse range of animals and birds. These offer endless inspiration for Jamie's artwork and his enthusiasm is seen in the colours, textures and atmosphere he applies to his paintings.
Jamie's 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 his work which often uses words poetry as well as paint. The lines of various poems have been woven into his imagery - segments of which can be read.
