This Textile Artist of the Year 2013 award acts as a series of marketing tool to increase her exposure and publicity and sets her apart from her contemporaries

Helen Hadley, Textile Artist

After her retirement, textiles came to the fore again and she undertook City and Guilds courses parts 1 and 2 in creative and machine embroidery. The courses inspired her and introduced her to a wide range of fabric treatment and techniques. When making her art, Helen finds fabric from everywhere, ripping, stripping and dyeing it. She also uses paper and metal to not only produce large and small framed pieces, but also hangings, bags, scarves, cushions and small items like bookmarks and cards.

Helen Hadley has always had an interest in fabric and textiles. From The basis of Helen Hadley’s art centres on textiles and mixed media, an early age, she remembers making her own clothes, something including fabrics that are painted and dyed before building up the layered textures needed for the project in hand.

with, but also her painting style. Using unconventional lines, shapes and colours, the striking interpretations of buildings around the Cambridge area, help the art from Pam Hinton stand out amongst the rest. Her take on flowers not only explores line and shape but also colour, whether the subtlety of watercolour or the vibrancy of egg tempera.

With inspiration drawn from buildings, landscapes, flowers and still life, Pam uses different media to interpret the world around her. Her experimentation with different media has seen her come to using a freer style in watercolour and oil. Recently she has most enjoyed using pen and ink with or without watercolour wash. Egg tempera painting is another challenge. Egg tempera is the result of mixing pure pigment with egg yolk for a vibrant, stunning colour. Colour is the most important factor for both Pam and her art, with her artwork enjoying the vibrancy and contrast. It is not just the medium and the subject of Pam’s art that she experiments

For your chance to meet with Pam and see her art in person, she is taking part in Cambridge Open Studios on the 2nd and 3rd weekends in July. See www.camopenstudios.co.uk/node/476 For more information, call Pam Hinton on 01223 358119 or email her on pamhintonuk@yahoo.co.uk

SPIRITUAL ARTIST OF THE YEAR 2013

“Make Your Life a Work of Art and Your Art a Work of Life.” We at the Southern Voice have been impressed with Hayley Felton, who has chosen to accept the award for Spiritual Artist of the Year 2013. This Spiritual Artist of the Year 2013 award acts as a series of marketing tools to increase the exposure and publicity of her art and sets her apart from her contemporaries. Hayley Felton’s art portfolio is eclectic to say the least. The talented artist undertakes bespoke commissions for private homes and offices, with her art held in collections throughout Europe and Australia. Her vibrant art has been shown in numerous London based exhibitions and her figurative painting ‘Grace’ was showcased on BBC2’s first series of ‘Show Me the Monet’.

Hayley Felton’s art encompasses her passion for spirituality, with an intention to create harmony through art and to facilitate balance, direction and clarity in her clients, through Atlantean Healing™. With her studies to become a Spiritual life Coach, she hopes to help people discover who they really are and help them get on track, following an authentic life path. Hayley believes that part of her life path is to help others using her talents and abilities, whether creating bespoke art commissions to elevate a positive atmosphere, present and inform others about art and spirituality or channel balance through an Atlantean Healing™ session.

Two of Hayley’s latest art commissions were for QVC UK’s Head office. The inspirational pieces were accompanied by holistic statements, creating an uplifting and positive atmosphere to the working environment. She has even had her work ‘Molten Inspiration’ included on the front cover of a magazine and has provided illustrations for published books, alongside auctioning off art for charity. One such piece of art was called ‘Ormond Vibrancy’ and was auctioned for Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital. With sparkling acrylic and resin jewel-like creations, to her own take on the pop-art movement and even life-like portraits, Hayley’s impressive art portfolio displays her diverse artistic talents. A new collection currently in planning is a series of angel inspired paintings.

She has exhibited throughout the U.K. and abroad and has many pieces in permanent collections.

Inspired by light and colour, Virginia is an enthusiastic and committed artist who regularly exhibits her work. With much experience behind her, Virginia’s art highlights the vibrancy and beauty of the natural landscape.

‘Reincarnated Rubbish ‘is Val’s solo, touring exhibition which has been on show throughout the U.K. and aims to inspire and encourage everyone to experience the fun of creative recycling.

Virginia said “I try to capture the spirit of the landscape and how it feels to be there by my choice of colours; the blue haze of distance, the varieties of shadow colours against the brightness of glancing sunlight. Also by the way I apply oil paint, thick over thin, and the rhythm of different brush marks.”

For inquiries about showing’ Reincarnated Rubbish‘ in your gallery or to make a commission, however unusual, weird or wonderful please contact Val Hunt.
