Julia Brownsword, Peak Vision Arts - 32d

Location: Chapel-en-le-Frith, High Peak / Genre: Mixed Media Design

Artist Statement

As a mixed media artist, I take the inspiration for my work from a passion ignited by the landscape in which I the run and cycle. The tranquillity of the countryside opens my eyes to the beauty, joy and freedom of nature. Ephemeral changes in light, subtle shadows and blocks of colour captivate me and I feel an unspoken energy. This feeling of well-being drives my creativity to draw, paint and stitch, embedding the emotional links felt as I journey through the landscape.

I compose 2D images of my journeys capturing the landscape by using an eclectic mix of textiles, paper, paint and stitchery. Using this broad range of media invites the viewer to experience my portrayal of the changing elements of the Peak District and wild places of Scotland and Ireland. Computer technology enables the translation of these images into designs for fabrics and a range of products including lampshades and cushions.
