JULIE LEGGETT ART
JULIE LEGGETT ART
My schedule for the year up to now: The Derbyshire Open where I will be exhibiting with the Derbyshire Makers at 'The Whitworth'. I am not going to be able to make the Belper Art Trail this year due to a clash with other business events, as I will be away in Whitby exhibiting and trading on the same weekend. I am also heading the Bonsall Arts Trail re organisation for the second live Trail planned for 2024. Still working hard producing some new work for this year...some additional mixed media techniques, hopefully if they are successful. I am also booked in for a workshop with one of my favourite Textile artists in February at the Harley Gallelry....exciting stuff....

I live in the beautiful village of Bonsall on the edge of the Peak District
I work in all areas of mixed media, paint , collage, pastels, and textiles. A new collection of mixed media artwork will be put together for 2023.
I am a member of two stitch groups
- untangled threads
This year my painting will be reaching out with some oil pieces, as well as acrylic and mixed media. Interior and still life subjects still draw me in, with a look into my own interior life.
My textiles gear towards portraits, birds and religious and spiritual icons - I like both organic and more formal stitching. It continues to be a busy period for restocking and working hard as many pieces flew to new homes and stitching new ones takes a little time. Watch out for a new ranges of, interesting mixed media and stitched pieces for 2023.
SKETCHING to aid both my stitching and mixed media artwork
A sketchbook is a must for me. Once I have captured an object, I study its shape, size and form, orchestrating my thought patterns to give me a visual picture, and provides a way of constructing a new composition to work with. I really enjoy the spontaneity of this process: building the picture up using the elements of collage, paint, mark-making and drawing.
