32 Triangles

Here is my main piece for Turn The Page artists book Fair. It was inspired by my painting I have now called ’32 Triangles’.

A limited edition of 32 Tulip fold books, each containing a miniature signed print  of the original painting. (12 displayed at one time)

In the humidity of the exhibition the books opened slightly and showed their content.

A wonderful time was had by all at the exhibition which was held in the Forum, Norwich.

The Green Cockatoo

I’m just loving collage at the moment so here’s another for you to see.

‘The Green Cockatoo’Green Cockatoo
This collage was built on an old water colour that I got with a few others in a job lot at a church sale (I have left the original signature and just added mine). It adds to the surreal nature when magazine cuttings etc are applied. I’m really happy with this 🙂

Flamingo Collage

Well, flamingo’s seem to be the order of the day!

I’ve been working on some flamingo themed artwork and products and this collage is one of my first pieces. I am very pleased with him and he seems to be becoming a springboard for some other work. I especially like the way the foil paper I’ve used on his neck takes on the look of his feathers 🙂FlamingoI am pleased to say there is beginning to be some flamingo related work for sale in my online shop, for example the writing paper set below. 🙂P1380219

Makers Month – Free Style Crochet

Had a super morning in Norwich joining in Makers Month which is on for the whole of February which has different crafts to try during the month. I went today because my friend Kally was there with her freestyle crochet. Here are a few photos from the event. The Idea for her stand was for people to make a piece of crochet for the totem pole in the pictures.P1040084 P1040093 Here’s me concentrating very hard on my piece!P1040095 I was rather pleased with it in the end.P1040099 Here’s me with super clever Kally…P1040103 and here’s my piece attached to the totem! 🙂P1040104

Kally also makes amazing chunky crochet hooks from found pieces of wood. Here’s a link to the crochet event and here’s a link to Kally’s Facebook page Woolenwood 🙂

Fakenham Art Biennial

We have been busy with the setting up of Fakenham Art Biennial, everything is now up and running. Here are a couple of my works in situ that I have had the privilege to hang in the exhibition.

Fake art 1 Fake art 2Do come over to Fakenham if you can because there is some great stuff to see!

Inspiration?

We went to an art exhibition at Cley-next-the Sea on Friday, there were some really interesting pieces of work. One of my favourites was this textile piece by Kally Davidson….

…could this help with the inspiration for my ‘Woolhenge’.

I especially like this creature appearing to crawl out of the pillar! 🙂
