I love art. It make your walls look dead nice and walking around galleries is relaxing and who didn’t love finger painting as a kid? Seriously though, i’d never call myself an art expert but i’ve always loved losing myself in drawing or painting and being generally creative and i’m always impressed by anyone who can draw halfway decently.
Which is why I want to pimp Sarah’s website to you.
I met her through work (but don’t let that put you off, she’s only on here because I think her work’s great ;0) but I just think she’s so talented that she should be blogged about. I think it has to be the pencil sketches that I love so much, her lion sketch is simply beautiful and i’d kill to draw this well.
She’s also very talented wielding a knife (sadly she’s limited to wood whittling and not ninja skills) and has some beautiful carved wooden necklaces.
I think it’s so important to support local endeavours and I love that since moving to Bedford that we’ve had that opportunity more. Some of the most special pieces of art work and crafty things we own were bought directly from the artists from stalls at the local market, both here in Bedford and more further afield such as Aberystwyth and Alderney.
I have a lot of respect for Sarah’s work and the fact that she seems to really love doing it in whatever spare time she has. Please do check her out if you’re looking for a special gift for someone and or that one off piece of work to complete your home.
You can find out more about Sarah and view her gallery at http://sarahhamerartist.weebly.com/index.html. She has prints, greetings cards and handcrafted gifts for sale and will undertake commissions.
