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.
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.
Above are examples of Anne’s miniatures. you can see more at the Fair, so do come along!
