Diary Date: 14 June 2015 - Meet Karen Neale at Stamford Arts Centre

Karen Neale: Artist based in Stamford, sketching the world around her.
"My passion is sketching and painting the world around me in my annotated, sketchbook diaries. Standing in situ I draw with a black biro as much as I can of what is going on around me, adding colour with my small field box of watercolours. The notes I’ve made around the perimeter are  of observations made whilst sketching."

Diary Date: 14 June 2015 - Meet Teresa Hodges at Stamford Arts Centre

Teresa Hodges: Lincolnshire based artist inspired by landscape & nature.
"I've always most of all enjoyed painting landscapes, and especially trees;  I love the changing patterns made against the sky by the branches and leaves, and am always moved by the sight of an ancient dead tree in a green and vibrant setting. I also enjoy painting the small rather whimsical pictures that very often include one of my dogs, either past or present."

Diary Date: 14 June 2015 - Meet Shalini Austin at Stamford Arts Centre

Shalini Austin: Artisan jeweller & metal-smith based in Stamford.

"I once bought a necklace in Peterborough and then said that it was often difficult to get something unique at a reasonable price. I am from India where individually hand-crafted jewellery is available to buy to suit any budget and I was quite used to indulging in my love for bling! Dave said, “You could do that! Why don’t you make your own?” Famous last words indeed!"

Diary Date: 14 June 2015 - Meet Eve Marshall at Stamford Arts Centre

Eve Marshall: Artisan felter and teacher based in rural Lincolnshire

"I love the process of needle felting. It’s amazing how you can take something so raw, stab it with a needle and create something unique. From just a little piece of fluff you can make anything. I choose to use a single needle to create my pieces because I am able to sculpt, add colour and texture simply and effectively. It gives me such instant results and can be used at any scale from larger wall hangings to the tiny, detailed animal brooches I make. It’s a good portable craft that I can create pieces on the train or in front of the telly. I only need a piece of foam, a couple of needles, and some wool."
