TO EXHIBIT AT THE

Watercolour and Works on Paper Fair

sANDRA hIGGINS FINE aRT, sTAND d2

I am so pleased that Anne Smith will be exhibiting her wonderfully crafted miniature works on paper with me at the fair this year. I asked Anne to say a few words about her work which follow below.

Artists statement:

Aside from many years spent as a potter, some interests and influences that have touched this work are: Shaker gift drawings, Alfred Wallis, Ravillious and Bawden, Natural History illustrations, decorative arts archive pages, typography and Mughal miniatures, to name but a few.

These images are composed digitally using a diverse lexicon of painted and found elements gathered over may years.  Once printed I work into the piece further with finely painted gouache and occasionally add gold leaf and other materials.

With the “Miniatures” series. I am using this personal language to create rich, gem-like images that have emotional resonance and a sense of intimacy.
