Wildlife Animals Set of Nine postcards and Envelopes Collection Two
Wildlife Note Cards. (Collection Two)
Animals and wildlife inspire a great deal of my artwork and so I have dedicated a series of collage paintings to some of the animals I have seen when out walking in the Nene Valley where I live. Some of these have appeared in my garden or down in the lakes and meadows of the nature reserve nearby. Some I haven't seen in a long time like the red squirrel.
All are wonders of nature and build a rich tapestry of life that none of us would be without. These cards are made so that we can all be reminded of the joy of the natural world.
Here are my special collection of postcards and envelopes with nine designs showing different animals. All designs were originally collaged in paper using the words of poetry from the Northamptonshire poet John Clare.
Each note card is 105 x 148 mm (A6) and is produced on 350gsm paper with a kraft envelope to send it in.

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.
