There are so many wonderful artists & makers here in Scotland
and more closer to home in Dumfries & Galloway
So I decided every now & again to share the work of some of my favourites!
* * *
Early last year I had the pleasure of seeing the glowing works
of Dumfries & Galloway based artist Jennie Ashmore.
who's love for texture & pattern shines through her work.
Each piece is a delicate layer upon layer of collage
made entirely from carefully placed leaves, flowers & greenery.
Jennie collects her treasures from the local woodlands, fields & gardens
in and around her home here in South West Scotland.
I spend a happy age wandering from piece to piece
taking in the depth and colour and detail
each new work like a glorious ancient patchwork quilt.
Do have a peep at her website here
