JULIE LEGGETT ART

WELCOME

I am an artist based in the beautiful Peak District village of Bonsall, near Matlock. My inspirations include the abundance of beautiful landscapes and gardens around me. These, and adventures abroad and on the canal waterways offer me the opportunity to observe and capture the things I see using photographs and sketchbooks.  I am also inspired by my love of interiors, another avenue for my work.

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 visual picture, and providing 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.  It can take me several hours to find the right items to include in the collage; the work often changing several times before I am happy with it.  
My recent work reflects my concertina sketchbooks. I have a collection of paintings which are abstract reflections on gardens, nature, allotments and the waterways and I am continually working in my sketchbook looking for new ideas for further series of paintings and collections.
