Claire Leggett – All Things Bright and Beautiful (mixed media)
Join Claire for something completely different, creating contemporary, mixed media designs with a touch of sparkle. This promises to be an amazing day for artists, beginners and crafters alike.
“My painting and design is a celebration of colour and pattern. I love ornament and design in both natural and manmade objects. With a background in printed textiles I find myself most often drawn to flat, graphic pattern as a backdrop for flowers and domestic ceramics. I love to create still life paintings that either blend a harmonious colour palette or contrast with a vibrant ‘pop’ of colour and these paintings feed my inspiration and ideas for surface pattern designs. I love painted lines, the texture of paint on watercolour paper and the handmade feel of painted designs.”
