I’ve found the arts community to be incredibly welcoming and supportive. Here’s a list of links to various sites/people who have inspired me/helped me/been generally supportive or whose art I love. No, I’m not saying which is which, that would be rude 😉 If I’ve forgotten you I apologise, my memory is terrible.
Custom clothing, amazing dolls, and a HUGE knowledge of all things nature & historical.
Wonderful custom made silver jewellery with a real passion to it.
Abstracts, nature and quirky wonder. Jen also teaches some incredible classes both in person and on Skillshare.
Marvellous art and illustrations in an impressively wide range of styles, Jo is also a formidable teacher (and having worked for her one of the most organised people I’ve ever met).
Neil’s dramatic nature drawings take my breathe away.
Stephanie Gay – Silk Artist
Beautiful wildlife and landscape paintings on silk.
Cookham and Maidenhead Arts Trail
My first experience as a proper artist, also a brilliant insight into a thriving local arts community.
Progress Theatre – Reading
Independent, self-funded theatre company in Reading, constantly astounded by the shows they put on.
