ART BY ANNA


Anna is a local artist with a new-found love of painting and a passion for the sea and the wild outdoors. She is driven to paint high energy pictures and finds herself captivated by light, water and snow. She also loves the vibrant colours of flowers in sunlight and because of this, poppies feature prominently in her work. She uses a range of media to give her work colour-brilliance and bold texture and usually paints on canvas.

Anna loves to paint from attractive photographs and often prefers to understand what the client loves rather than to paint for general appeal. Much of her recent work has been commissions, which she will be available to discuss, and she will also be busy producing lots of new originals for the market. 


If you visit the artbyanna stall, you will find a wide range of excellent value original paintings, prints, greetings cards and gift vouchers, plus the chance to win an original painting of your own.

SMALLPRINT


Smallprint was the first company in the UK to specialise in the creation of silver fingerprint jewellery and keepsakes. Each piece of fingerprint jewellery has actually been touched by someone you love, making it a very precious gift.  The range also includes hand and foot prints, as well as perfect replicas of older children’s drawings and doodles. You can even celebrate the first time they write their name by capturing their careful letters, mistakes and all. 

All items can be made into charms, pendants, key rings, cufflinks or Christmas decorations. Smallprint Bubbles are the latest range to be introduced in fine silver. 

Each item is handmade and finished, providing customers with a unique piece of jewellery. Most importantly, Smallprint is a specialist in its field – that of creating silver keepsakes for parents, family and friends to treasure those precious milestones forever.  

Small Print will take your child’s print and make it into a beautifully crafted keepsake in time for Christmas.

"I use all sorts of beads - I am not a snob, I like to mix all mediums, ranging from hand made kiln wound glass, to gemstones, pearls, plastic, wood and old vintage bits and bobs I have been storing in my nest. I get such a thrill seeing people out and about in my jewellery that I have to stop myself from running up to them and saying - "Hey I made that!  ... give it back"  ... (the last bit's a joke!)
