This is a 'painting' made using collage techniques from the words of the famous 'Northamptonshire peasant poet' John Clare. To make this artwork I printed the poem in a range of up to date and trendy colours and then cut, ripped, arranged and glued the words into these inspired designs.
My inspiration comes from nature and the wonderful linocut printmaking that I admire. The words of the poem add a bit more spark to my imagination and allow you to see into the world of the poet and me - the artist!
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 this 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.
