Star of the Week

Meet Heather, she is my Star of the week.

Again I came across Heather when I was looking at her work on the Flickr group Fairiezine.

I always think it’s fascinating to see the vast variation in what artists produce. Heather builds up and paints on collaged backgrounds, something I had never see before, or not noticed. So you can see (as in life) the many layers behind the painting. In her words ‘Mixed media folk art inspired by love, family, faith, history and life out on the prairie’.

Heather was producing a very eye-catching collection of Angels or winged ladies rather than the traditional idea of an angel and mother and child paintings. Eventually I gave in and purchased a print called ‘Cherish’ which you can see above. I have yet to frame it and give it a place on the wall above my PC but until then it sits in front of me while I am on here.

It is interesting to see how Heathers inspiration varies from time to time and yet still maintains that ‘eclectic’ feel. Go take a look by following the linked picture below, enjoy :-)

Star of the Week

Meet Annette, she is this weeks Star of the week.
(Iris, pictured above)

Annette was the first artist I met on the Internet. She is from Norway and we became ‘long distance’ friends after I commented on her work on a Flickr group I joined. At the time Annette was making beautiful Atc’s. ‘Iris’ caught my eye and inspired me to put pen to paper and write. My story as yet is unfinished but Annette continues to produce and ever expanding portfolio that now includes some stunning Owls :-)

I have several of her Atcs that were part of a swap we did. Please take a look at her work by following the linked peice below :-)
