I graduated from Herefordshire College of Art in 2001
with BA (Hons) in Design Crafts.
Landscapes are my inspiration where light and colour evoke their unique atmosphere. Mountains, seascapes, vistas, of places I have travelled all inspire me.
I am back at Joanna Rose's with Laura Dickenson.
Jo will be presenting her china decorated using juxtaposed ceramic transfers with a contemporary twist, each piece unique.
Laura will be showing her detailed prints inspired by nature.
I'll be showing my colourful, kitsch digitally printed cushions and bags combined with vintage materials.
I will also be exhibiting screen printed tea towels.
My name is Louise and I am a fabric addicted mum of two who has been sewing since I was a small child. I make quirky gifts for children using fabulous contemporary fabrics, buttons and ribbons. I also co-ordinate a charity in the UK which encourages people who can sew to make handmade dresses which are distributed to girls in developing countries like Malawi and Uganda. When I am not sewing, I blog about sewing! http://sewscrumptious.blogspot.co.uk
Award winning Textile Artist, Angie Parker, will be showing her handwoven rugs, wall hangings and up-cycled chairs.
Her bold use of colour gives a contemporary feel to the traditional Scandinavian techniques she uses, and rich textures are created by using a variety of yarns in each piece.
Weaving demonstrations are another reason to visit this venue, as Angie will be busy 'sampling' on her table loom for the duration of the Arts Trail.
Janine Partington is a designer-maker creating fresh, clean and contemporary designs in enamel. She makes wall panels, jewellery, sculptures and clocks. The price for wall panels starts at £45, jewellery at £13, sculptures at £45 and clocks at £65. At this year's trail Janine will also be selling off end of line designs from previous years at greatly reduced prices.
I am a self taught artist who combines art with a full time job and I produce art in a range of different media. My paintings are mostly of animals and my favourites medium is a combination of watercolour and coloured pencil. I have recently been experimenting with textiles and produced a number of art quilts. I am also a keen photographer and on display in addition to my paintings and art quilts there will be some of my photographs.
Recently I’ve added batik and print-making to my repertoire having been on a great Fabric Design course at St. Pauls Learning Centre.
The techniques really lend themselves to my love of texture, fabric and the element of surprise.
I plan to include some fledgling examples of them along with my ‘regular’ acrylic and mixed media paintings.
I'll be in the Beauley room at the Southville Centre and hope to see you there.
Textile art using buttons and felting, frame floral button pictures, felted vases and plant pots.
Bright and happy textile art.
The textile panels I create originate from my own finely detailed drawings depicting places I have visited and subjects close to my heart.I take the drawings and then after printing these onto fabric I appliqué them to a backing of complimentary design or my own screen printed fabric.My other work includes screen printed designs on fabric, t-shirts and cards.In addition to my own artwork I teach and deliver workshops to children and adults.Commissions and orders welcome
