In a weeks’ time Hebden Bridge Open Studios will begin.This is when the public get to see all those creative spaces and the beautiful work that is made in them.
I will be opening my studio along with the super talented Hannah Nunn.
To celebrate and to give a sneaky peak of what will be in my studio I am going to feature a piece of artwork each day on my blog.
So without further ado, first up are lots of handprinted cards…
I have been thinking about the colour palette of each of these cards; I wanted them to have their own identity in their ranges but still have some running thread.I have already made prints to sit along side the Kingfishers and I am particularly excited about making the hummingbirds into prints. I used metallic green ink for these-it made me very happy to see how it shined against the matt grey recycled card (it is the small things)!
Hold on to your seats for the next instalment…
This Sunday I will be opening my Studio from 2-5pm for last minute presents, mince pies and tipples and the chance to win a print! Come along and say Hi!
Here are a few pictures from my exhibition at Heart Gallery. Some original paintings have been sold but there are some available as well as giclée prints.
The exhibition is on until the 6th of November, do visit if you can!
The original painting of this has sold but giclée prints are available at Heart Gallery. There is also a ‘meet the artist event’ on the 19th of September, 1-4pm, where I will be sharing my inspirations and techniques. Come along if you can!
Today is the day! My private view is today at Heart Gallery I hope to see you there!
This is my last painting in my countdown to the exhibition. Here is a little bit of info about it:
This is a painting inspired by an evening picnic.It was my friend’s birthday and we went to the meadows above Nutclough woods. We chatted, laughed and ate as the light faded and cloaked the hills in indigos. The bright colours of the flowers still around us.This is my memory of it.
Looking out over the valley; the mist camouflaging the houses. Wintery woodland walks and wellies!
Once a week I look after my friend’s dog; Polly. This is one of our favourite walks. We go through the woods off Palace House Road and loop back around to pass these outbuildings. If we are lucky we see the horses that live there.
The under and over dwellings in Hebden Bridge give it a unique identity. Tall houses and rolling hills. When the evenings draw in the greens in the valley become more muted and accept the blue hues.
